Face. Off. It has to be Face/Off.

MOONSTRUCK? LORD OF WAR? THE SORCERERS APPRENTICE?

All of these are great guesses. Face/Off is actually my 2nd favorite of his movies. It’s so wonderfully over the top. Nobody is going to guess my favorite because I think most people hated this movie.

My favorite Cage film is actually Adaptation. It’s written by my favorite screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and directed by one of my favorite directors Spike Jonze. It’s a movie about flowers and the difficulties as a writer of adapting scripts. It’s on Netlfix if you want to check it out.

You mentioned Amy Poehler and pizza rolls. That’s, like, Internet catnip. Internip?

But…hm, I guess my largest issue is that this post had no tags whatsoever and yet is being reblogged in note count in the 50s. By people who do not follow me. I just find it weird. I’ll live with it, of course, but I will be mortified if anyone applies their personal experiences or quotes to something I dreamed. 

On the way to Philly, we stopped at Delaware’s Dewey Beach. This is the only good photo of me from the entire vacation that I didn’t take myself. No offense to Dave or anything, but little dude only just recently learned that shooting someone from below is hardcore unflattering. As I had to explain, “It makes me look like I have eight chins”.

Eight. Chins. Guys.

Years ago, I read a silly article that examined how past presidents’ terms impacted their looks, specifically as it pertained to the pressure of running a country. I thought about it again when I realized that the last three years of my life have involved an awful lot of stress, culminating in me finally earning my bachelor’s degree (more on that if I ever receive my diploma in the mail). I take a lot of selfies, which gave me a large inventory from which to pool in evaluating how stress might have changed my appearance. Sure, it’s not running a country or even a full four years, but stress is stress and it can take its toll. Here are photos of me taken roughly around the same time each year since 2010. Looking at them objectively, I think the only thing we’ve learned is that I make the same face a lot.

I ran out of eyebrow juice* this morning and had to improvise to color them in. I felt like I didn’t look like me, but no one seemed to notice. Maybe I should have spoken in a different voice or something. Worn funny glasses. Never stopped saying “Some weather we’re having”. You know, un-me things.

*My cheapo eyebrow pencil that may actually just be eyeliner, but that I like too much to check the label for confirmation. It’s so goddamned cheap that I need to sharpen it almost every day, but it matches my brows perfectly.
