5 on 5

Five musings on my five favourite topics of late....

1. Real Madrid
  • Yes the team is on a losing streak and they may have more players in sick bay than on the field these days but the most important news coming out of the Bernebeau is the fact that FERNANDO GAGO GOT A HAIRCUT!!! *faints*
  • and to top that off, Gago scored...his first goal for Real Madrid (clearly the Samson factor did not come into play).  As Tyra would say, he is 'Fierce'.
  • Higuain is back...and he scored...*extreme obeisance and praise to the powers that be*. It appears everything is normal in the world again (perhaps it may be a bad thing that I and virtually every other Madridista EXPECT him to score every game now)
  • WTF referee-ing 101 = Robben's red card??????
  • Amauri's header - the game winning goal...err, so that may not be Real Madrid but DANG it he was hot

2. Twilight
Yes I finally saw the movie and my five comments are as follows:
  • Hmmm, never thought  those Cullen boys were gay??? They sure came across that way in the movie. Edward, for instance, had way more chemistry with Carlisle than he did with Bella....o_O
  • Is it wrong that I was cheering for James and Victoria?
  • Jacob...noooooo!!! *headdesk* (sidenote: he did look a tad like a Native version of Matt Damon, errr, Michael Ballack ...in other words, it wasn't THAT bad)
  • I got the impression that Rosalie was actually supposed to be good looking...on par with say, Helen of Troy. After watching that movie, I'm thinking that was some serious downgrading (no offense to the actress who is reasonably good looking)
  • Note to producers of sequel: GET A REAL BUDGET AND MAKE A DECENT MOVIE. 
3. Gossip Girl
  • There were not enough tissues to deal with the Blair/Chuck moments this week.....so heartbreakeningly sweet.
  • I actually physically cringe when I see Serena's new BF. He is just repulsive. There is not one thing I like about him.
  • Oh snap..like we didn't see the Rufus/Lily lovechild coming from a mile away.
  • If only I could have a Dorota in my life. Best maid ever.
  • Congratulations...it's a miracle...we managed to make it through one entire episode without seeing Rufus in a plaid shirt.
4. Other TV
  • Amazing Race final  - once mom and son were out of the Race last week I really didn't care. They should have won. Only one question though - why were they MIA from the finale reunion?? Hmmmm....(and a big shout out to my best virtual reality AR partner ever...you know I love you...XOXO...)
  • So You Think You Can Dance final - biggest anti-climactic finale ever. Niko won. I could have told you that on day one. Granted Lisa and Vincente were the best pure dancers all season, the show is clearly just like Idol and, let's face it, it comes down to a popularity contest rather than a talent competition. Niko had the most charisma, got the most cheers..blah, blah, blah. Was he the best dancer? No. Top three maybe. I have no real complaints though as, aside from Natalie, I think, all things considered, the top four deserved to be there. Now go enjoy your 15 minutes.
  • The Tudors - Season Finale is tomorrow night. I  was utterly disgusted watching last week's episode. The merciless torture and slaughter of Anne's four alleged accomplices was sickening. I don't know if I'll be able to watch Anne's.  I'm thankful no one has ever portrayed Augustus'  proscriptions on film or I fear my insane love of the Julio-Claudians may never be the same.
  • With all these shows ending WTF am I going to watch?
  • Two episodes of Big Bang Theory tonight...*cheers*
5. Work
  • The new office is a most peaceful and tranquil place. I am with the calm when I am at work. I actually look forward to going to work now.
  • The new bus route to work is perfect. No schoolkids, no crowds, scenic (who knew passing the Don Jail would be so much fun???) and fast, fast, fast
  • Only two weeks till Christmas break
  • Stupid officers pick Wednesday to come visit the new digs....Don't they realize I have UEFA game to watch???
  • There is a shuttle bus that runs from the new office to Eglinton Square mall...and I'm out of debt in less than four months. mwuahaha....
The refereeing in the match was suspect yesterday that's all I have to say!

FERNANDO GAGO GOT A HAIRCUT

I know he looks 2 years old but adorkable!

Amauri's header - the game winning goal...err, so that may not be Real Madrid but DANG it he was hot

I have to agree even though he's not my type.

never thought those Cullen boys were gay

Ya let me just say that Book Edward is a "stalker" and Movie Edward is "gay"...there's nothing more to say.

Is it wrong that I was cheering for James and Victoria?

I know...I was saying to Lell that even though I knew he would die I so was hoping that maybe just maybe he'd win and spare the rest of us the worst acting I've seen in a long time! Someone tell Bella to close her mouth please she's catching flies!!!

3. Gossip Girl

Agree on all points. Chuck breaks my heart he's the kind you want to save and know he's headed for tragedy of Elizabethan proportions!

So You Think You Can Dance final - biggest anti-climactic finale ever.

Charlene who watched said the same thing and that the Canadian version is different from the American version (which she watches)...in that the judges have more say in which dances are picked for the finale.

Two episodes of Big Bang Theory tonight...*cheers*

*does happy dance* Best sitcome on TV right now!

The new office is a most peaceful and tranquil place. .

Are there many steps and columns? LOL

Only two weeks till Christmas break

This floors me as I'm not in the X-Mas mood at all...but then again I haven't been for a few years now. It holds no meaning for me anymore.

Team Jacob (not that that is much better!)
