The Curious Case of Me Hating this Movie

1. Today marks the 15 month anniversary of my wife and I cutting off our Internet. I have found about five minutes a day at work to check my e-mail and have used friends or my parents' house (where I am now) to take care of any important business. It has been nice for my wife and I to be forced to look at each other in the face and talk to one another instead of taking separate isolated hour-long turns on the Internet. That being said, I am very glad that we kept cable television.
2. The current world environment makes me afraid to blog. Supposedly everyone who has power over you, from your current boss, to future-possible boss, to whoever else, now Googles your name to check up on you. This is scary to me, as, let's face it, I am a loud-mouthed jerk on the Internet. I am paranoid this is going to get me into trouble in life. Moreso than prepositional phrases.
3. I really did not like this particular film but felt distressed that everyone I saw it with enjoyed it, as well as, apparently, most critics. Thankfully, this reviewer put my mind at ease by feeling the same way as I. Thanks, old man.

I didn't really hate the movie. It was very well acted. I didn't have a problem with the premise, because just last week I heard an elderly person say that you should get younger as you advance in years, and it's not the first time that I have heard that said. I would definitely say that I'm not a fan of all the sleeping around. It's not that I haven't seen plenty of sleeping around in movies, but it's just that these characters don't seem too "innocent" for that kind of activity. The movie was also way too long. I was really ready for the end by the end.
Furthermore, the internet misses you. *tear*

I meant to say "seem to innocent" not "don't seem too innocent"

That was the worst. I found Benjamin despicable in the two major situations, and in both cases felt sorry for the husbands, one who is defending his country every night, the other who has basically taken on all the responsibility that Benjamin himself should be carrying on his shoulders.
I miss the Internet, too. The music list I just made was fun. Do you think having this blog under my name could one day get me into trouble?

If you have any worries about it getting back to you, just make sure your name doesn't appear on it. Google can't index what isn't there. Personally, I don't worry about it. I don't rant about my coworkers online. Nor do I talk about my company. All they would find out about me that they may not like is that I'm a Christian and a flawed human being.
