What makes me think i could start clean slated, the hardest to learn was the least complicated

Since I started working from home I nearly all but stopped watching TV. This is actually rather surprising since I used to be somewhat of an addict. People assume that I'm home so I must watch TV all day but the truth of the matter is that I can't stand daytime TV. I'd rather thread my own eyebrows then watch a talk show or a daytime soap. As much flexibility as I have with the job, it's a known fact that I'm in my office working every night after the kids are asleep. I TiVo a few shows that I barely get to watch. However, some nights when I just don’t feel like working, I come down and watch whatever movie is on regardless of how cheesy it is. Tonight for my viewing pleasure I’m watching the Peacemaker with George Clooney and Nicole Kidman. There are so many reasons for me to rip on this movie:

  • George Clooney is playing his character from ER the only difference being he’s a colonel in the US Army.
  • Nicole Kidman failing to keep her Australian accent under control while she’s playing the US Secretary of Missing Nuclear Weapons or some such nonsense.
  • Cheesy lines like “Let’s Rock and Roll” from Clooney as he commands his choppers into Russian airspace.
  • The majority of the shots of Serbian exiles have red headed extras which made me think they filmed it in Ireland.
  • The New York extras keep looking in the camera.

    However the cheeseball factor never fully got in the way of my interest and I kinda got into it.

    Even at the end when I got a big serving of Mozzarella with a side of Swiss.

Hi, I also work from home as an artist. It's amazing what people assume, number one being that I "don't really work!" (grrrrrrr.)

I recently found GrafxGurl's blog again. I think I have you to thank for me having found her wayyyyyyyy back initially. I used to have a blog called "Visages and Visions" for a few months. I used the name "Lady in R3D" and wrote poetry that I illustrated with my own photography.

I'm recognize your name, I think from a different blog we both visited, but that person's blogname escapes me. I remember yours because I love the taste of mint! (I noticed the green in your blog post titles.)

I, too, often work late into the night after everyone else is asleep. Take care!

Sorry, I have to defend this one.

There's a great line in there that has been cribbed by a lotta movies and TV shows:

"I'm not afraid of the man who wants 10 nuclear weapons. But I'm terrified of the man who only wants one."
