Another month in the books, and I have more potentials than posts. Either this is a precursor to a great next couple of months of blogdom, or the beginning of the end, which I refuse to accept. I chose to work hard to start writing, and even though I still suck, I choose to work at it to get better.
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has read over the last 3 months. All the words of encouragement, and positive feedback have really kept me going on this endeavour. And remember, if you think there is a way to improve, all feedback is recommended. There is a contact form to fill out, or just send an email. Previously <at> septicor <dot> com.
My poker nights have been more than successful this month. I don’t play for cash, but I am still kicking ass in Texas Hold’em. Heading to Vegas this month for a weekend, so maybe my “luck” will continue win some cash on the side.
Also a good month for my Leafs. We lead our division and Kessel leads the league in goals and points and he’s the first star of the month of October. Last Leafs player to do so: Felix Potvin back in 1993. And then, the Leafs were in the final four.
November is NaNoWriMo time. Now, I have never written anything creative in my life, let alone any novel. That being said, I wish everyone who’s participating all the best. I won’t be joining you this year, but hey, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be attempting to jot down ideas for next year. I just need to learn how to, you know, write.
Not many opportunities to play any retro games. Too wrapped up in Batman: Arkham City. Damn riddler trophies. Plus Uncharted 3 is coming out this week, so there goes another week of productivity. Oh and Skyrim is coming out in a couple of weeks, but since I quit every damn Bethesda game after one hour, including all Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, I think I shall dodge this one.
I was absent at the theatre all month, with the exception of Real Steel. But all is not lost, for I just won a free pass at a company bowling game. As for the movie selection, it’s pretty pathetic this month, so it looks like maybe an older movie is in my future. Nevertheless, here are my opinions of November’s releases.
Yes, I would like to see:
J. Edgar – November 11
No question, the man ran an interesting life, and was once one of the most feared men out there. I was never a huge Leonardo Dicaprio fan, but he’s slightly growing on me. I’m interested where this takes him.
Immortals – November 11
Looks like 300, but with gods. Sounds mindless, but fun.
Ra.One – Limited Release
An explosion of popularity came to Toronto recently, to advertise the most expensive Bollywood movie ever made. And it’s science fiction. Now, I have never sat through a Bollywood movie, but it would be interesting to start somewhere.
No, I have no interest in seeing:
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas – November 4
Gee, the first movie was one of the only films I ever turned off halfway, and the second looked pathetic and desperately unfunny. Why would I be encouraged to see this one?
Jack and Jill – November 11
Adam Sandler’s new comedy. Four words that make kittens cry.
Happy Feet Two – November 18
Another sequel where I hated the first one. What’s with all these sequels coming out in the last umpteen months?
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 – November 18
In fact, why don’t I just avoid the theatres altogether. Just walk by it like a building on quarantine. Save my free pass for writing down some notes, or something.
Arthur Christmas – November 23
Saw one teaser, have no earthly clue what’s it about, so why bother.
The Muppets – November 23
As tempting as it is, I can’t justify paying full price to see this in theatres.
