Out of the Blue

Today in a fit of inspiration, I moved the refrigerator to clean the floor underneath. The moving was the easy part, as the floor was quite grungy. I think every eight years is not frequent enough for such a job. I think next time I try this will be 2015 at the latest.

My shine comes out at 185 proof, in one pass. Anything over about 120 proof will kill the cells in your mouth and throat on contact. I gave my buddy a sample of still-strength stuff, cautioning him he'd need to dilute it with 1-2 parts water before consuming. He says he took the stuff home, and his wife's ex was there and he's one of those macho 'oh, I can drink anything' guys. My buddy said, no, you really don't want to try that with this stuff. But, of course, Mr. Macho had to show what he was made of. He takes a big slug and tries to shake it off. Much reddening of face, coughing and sputtering between curses and accusations followed. My buddy thanked me profusely for what he called 'the most entertaining 20 minutes of my life'.

I have just read 2 Indy reviews, both with spoilers and no warning beforehand.

Beware...

thanks for the head's up Warhawk, we weren't sure what to look forward to with our kid, so that helps.

I may have missed something here or there (had to go get some refreshments for the tyke), but I think that captures the essence of the potential objectionable material.

The trailers don't lie - it's like someone took all the neon lights they could find and put them in every racing scene they could find (except for a few scenes in exotic natural locales). It was better than I thought, which isn't saying much, but the movie was like a CGI Tokyo Drift with bumper cars thrown in. The racing scenes are teriffic in their badness with spinning and jumping around with neon and blur effects everywhere. Our 5-year old liked it.

A few tidbits for those with young kids - a scene with pirahnas (not too graphic, but more than I felt comfortable with our son, so I covered his eyes), the "s***" word (bleeped out), "ass" and "damn" a couple of times, ninja-style fighting, some blood on a face from a split lip and bloody nose, and one flipping the bird. I was a bit nervous going in (for a 5-year old), but to me it wasn't too much for him (in general).

In general, I think graffiti warrants imprisonment, because nothing else seems to stop those fuckers from vandalising people's property with their insipid ugly crap. That said, Muto is absolutely INCREDIBLE. And given that most of the surfaces were covered in other rubbish, the vast expanses of white left behind are actually something of an improvement, I think

Is this "fit of inspiration" AKA a nagging Mrs. Blue?

did my fridge a week ago. Its like dust that becomes grunge over the years when humidity adheres it to the floor. Took a disinfecting wipe to the floor. Nice to do that stuff, it feels therapeutic.
