movie filled weekend

saw s.w.a.t. over the weekend. let’s just say that that was time that could have been better spent. oh well. i also watched mystic river last night. i fell asleep during the movie. it just moved too slowly and didn’t really get interesting until the last 15 minutes…and it easn’t even worth the wait, in my opinion.

but i did see love actually and it was quite good. so good in fact that i think that i will watch it again.

son: you really want to know?
father: i really want to know.
son: even though you won’t be able to do anything to help?
father: even if that’s the case.
son: ok. the truth is…i’m in love.

father: i’m a little releived.
son: why?
father: well, because i thought it would be something worse.
son: worse than the total agony of being in love?
father: ah…no. you’re right. the total agony.


the game of rimball

i was introduced to the deadly game of rimball over the weekend. the game whose inception may offend some was surprisingly more fun than i had originally anticipated. it’s been a while since i played basketball so i wasn’t sure if i really could shoot anything at all anymore.

put simply, this game is a variant of basketball. yes…a variant. the rules are relatively simple. it’s a winner’s ball game of basketball where you get a point if you make a basket. you also get a point if you hit the rim. you get two points if you hit the back of the rim. if you hit the rim several times, you get a point for every time you hit the rim. first to 100 wins.

if you tie, then you go to sudden death. the first person to make a multi-point shot wins.

only a girl can bastardize basketball like this.

still, surprisingly fun.
