I am a shy and attractive young man living on the far east side of Loma Linda. I have no sense of humor or humility. My friends have always made fun of me for my gigantic forehead. My ultimate dream is to have a family with another man’s wife. After my mother’s death, I just wanted to be alone with my gold. That was until I met Roberta, my stunning good looking neighbor. I love Roberta, I think she’s beautiful and brilliant but also a little mysterious and brave. I’m a real man and I don’t get intimidated by successful women. Soon after, Roberta borrowed a shovel from me; it was then that I realized that girl was married. I invited her over for a quick drink. “Love is a sickness, Roberta, so I came for my daily dose of you.” She came over wearing a carrot-colored dress and some heels. I felt vertically challenged as she towered over me. Wanting to impress Roberta I stayed shirtless so she could appreciate my tight and ripped body. She explained to me how hard it was for her to remain monogamist. “Ma’am, is there a reason you’re trying to touch me?” I said. Roberta vented out her life story to me, which I found rather long and uninteresting. I then started to stare at her abnormal toes and I instantly fell in love with her pedicure. I offered Roberta a beer, martini, sea breeze, whiskey and even a margarita … she intoxicated herself with all of them. ‘Don’t kiss me Roberta, I’m too young!’ Before I realized it my house was being surrounded by cops. Seconds later they kicked down my (unlocked) front door and threw a brick through one of my windows. Whoops, I opened fire. I couldn’t keep my composure; I panicked, so before I knew it, I was in custody without the woman of my dreams. I was arrested and humiliated.
Your wife is far more likely to have an affair if you happen to have an extremely hot and attractive neighbor. This year has been rough for me and my kids (if I had any). Prohibition has ruined my love life. My wife has been bragging to her friends that she has seen me sobbing in the closet, which is not true. Family, friends, and even strangers seem to think that I am too feminine. I’m no longer allowed to ask law enforcement for help. I found poison in my beer! My wife is having an affair! I told her it was time to seek marriage counseling but no, nobody never listens to me. I was actually hoping for a happily ever after.
Okay so two weeks ago I saw my neighbor John drinking with my wife! I told law enforcement that John had beer; so the police came to his house and kicked his door down, even though John never locks his doors no matter what. I should know because I randomly walk into his house sometimes, just to stare. I helped the police by throwing a brick through one of John’s windows. The cops and I were stunned. John was loaded, and started shooting. The gun battle lasted for about an hour. John made a mistake though and got himself cornered on the roof. That night my wife was so mad, she didn’t even wash the dishes. Wait, she was mad didn’t she cheat on me! That next day John’s house caught on fire and it still continues to burn he,he,ha,ha.
That night a drunk Zeus look alike man was standing outside my house. When law enforcement arrived, they shot the poor man but missed. It looked like it was going to be a long night but that was until my sprinklers came on and the cops got the upper hand. The god of sky and thunder surrendered hardly without a fight. Shortly after I felt like a rodent so I went to go see Steamboat Willie. Even though she cheated on me I forgave her and took my sweet Minnie with me that night to have the time of her (short lived) life.
The Hannibal tetralogy (1991-2007)
Overall, I liked the series. However, I am disappointed! I heard so much about these films that I expected something “better”. To me (a movie novice), there was nothing exceptional about them - except the story or the acting delivered by Anthony Hopkins, Ralph Fiennes and Gaspard Ulliel. Nothing amazed me: neither the directing nor the rest of the cast.
In my opinion, the first movie is the best out of the four. Unlike the other three, it played more on the psychological side than on the “sensational” one and that’s what made the movie interesting. To me, showing Hannibal eating the brain of a living man isn’t interesting - i.e “Hannibal” -: it’s disgusting and disturbing, yes, but not interesting.
“Hannibal Rising” could have been a superb film. But it is not, honestly. Ulliel is really good but the story is so conventional! (I guess we have to blame Thomas Harris for that but I haven’t read the books, so I base my opinion on the movies only.) I mean, how easy is it to make Hannibal look like a victim?! Why couldn’t we have a real bad guy for once? Someone who’s crazy and bad and violent because he was born that way? No, Hannibal needed an excuse for being a cannibal. It’s lame. Period. Oh, and his “love story” with his “aunt”?! Ridiculous.
So, overall: quite ok, might watch them again someday for Hopkins (the man is a treasure) but that’s all.
=> Rating: 3/5
So I just saw Scream 4...
I have to admit, I had REALLY low expectations for this movie because Scream 3 was pretty horrendous. I only bothered with seeing this fourth installment because after seeing the first three, it almost felt like an obligation. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Actually, out of the four films, this was my second favorite, after the original of course. Usually when I’m in a move theater, I’m not the stereotypically loud black person, but tonight I could not stop yelling at the screen (it was okay though because everyone else was doing it too). But yeah, go see it if you haven’t already…unless you haven’t seen the first one. Otherwise, a lot of the references will fly right over your head.
So we went on a weekend to Hoi An & Denang, mainly to get cheap tailored suits at the former. It was pretty interesting seeing a whole town (Hoi An) essentially dedicated to tourists - every 2 out of 3 houses was some sort of shop and almost 3/4 of shops were tailors.
Anyway, in terms of the medical elective, I’m now in the cardiothoracic surgery department. However, there’s been some heavy rains and consequent flooding here so many of the operations have been delayed but I have managed to see a few repairs of congenital heart diseases including a tetralogy of Fallot! :)
