Da week/end recap

I had a fab week-end - as in the end of the week... although it spilt over into the weekend.  My cousin Genna and her mate Eliza came to stay.  Typically, the second they knocked on the door, I was slammed with work.  Thankfully, the girls were just stoked to be somewhere with electricity (they'd been camping all the way up)  They were also happy enough to watch a bit of telly, have a hot shower and check their emails. 

We spent some time down the beach, I took the girls to my gym (they thought I was hardcore cause it's soooo fucking hot in there), had lunch at The Pub with No Beer and went to Bellingen markets during the days... The night were spent sinking piss and chatting.  Friday night was fairly big!  Went down the V-Wall Tavern (first time I'd been there at night), got pretty smashed and paid for it Saturday morning while walking around the markets.  It was swelteringly hot and humid and the hangover was killing each and every one of us.  Rather than enjoy it... I just wanted to get the fuck out of there and sit in my air con'd car.  Shame really.

The girls headed off after the market fiasco and we picked up a couple of movies, went home and lazed on the couch all arvo (I slept mainly - man, I need to harden the fuck up!).  

I managed to sit through Four Holidays

(with Reece Witherspoon and the eternally monotone Vince Vaughn) - good light hearted thing that's totally predictable. 

I fell asleep during 'Terminator - Salvation'... Shame really!  Sam Worthington... Rawr!  Micko said it was pretty good.

Then made it through 'Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen'

Okay... so I actually wanted to see this because I love Isabel Lucas - why?  Well that warrants another blog, so we'll just leave it at that... for now. 

Now, I'd like to take a moment to make one thing very clear... Yes, Megan Fox, is hot!  I fucking get it!  What I don't get is how the girl ended up acting?  Cause she fucking sucks at that!   Pretty much the only reason she seems to have this role, is due to her arse-etts (assets)...

It certainly can't be credited to her fine (cough cough) acting abilities!

Towards the end of the movie, Micko and I were soooo over it, we groaned everytime she came on the screen.  It seems Megan is so versatile these days, that she now has 3 moves down pact and they make the most of them in every. single. shot!

Firstly, the pout...

Secondly, the far away look...

Thirdly, the mouth slightly agape
- I'm waiting for you to blow your load on my chest look....

Shithouse... won't watch it again.  Great effects though!  If I didn't feel like I was watching a wannabe overpaid porn star I probably could sit through more than once.

Then Sunday... Went to see Avatar 3D.  Enjoyed it, although after 2 1/2 hours I felt like the bottom of my arse had gone from rounded to flat... it's just too long to sit in the same position, in the same super uncomfortable chair.  Enjoyed it and thought the effects were amazing. 

Sam Worthington is one fine piece of down to earth Aussie arse.  I also love some of the things he says... obviously without too much thought going on before the mouth opens...  Sometimes I think he is the boy version of me.  Here are a few of his finer moments:

"Hopefully I'm bringing more complexity to it than Jean-Claude Van Damme does. No offense to the dude."

"Oh, isn't it cool? It's so cool being an actor! It's so cool having my face on a bus. That's bullshit. I hate people like that."

"It was some shit, fucking bullshit, that. It was the most drunkest movie I've ever done in my life."

"But I don't ever feel that there's a pressure of a suit going, 'If this fucks up, it's because of you,' because I'll go, 'You hired me, dickhead!'"

"Aussie actors take fifteen hours to get to America — we ain't going to waste our fucking time and money. And that means we're not going to waste their time."

"That, to me, is what it's all about, man — you kick down the door and then you let all your mates in."

"I said to Christian [Bale] ... I'm waiting for my tirades to come out. Or me on the toilet. Either way, it's going to be on YouTube."

Everytime i read your posts i try to imagine your accent...i've always wanted one and can sit for hours listening to those who do. Weird kind of funny thought i'd share :)-
Have a wonderful week hun.

i don't even think megan fox is really hot. well, i guess her body is amazing but above the neck, she looks like a drag queen. for mine, she's the biggest oddity on the 'hot' list. i also find jolie over-rated but am totally with the boys on the likes of alba, aniston, theron, diaz etc etc blah blah

Masala Chica said...

That's really funny. I love living vicariously through you as you remind me of what I was before I had kids. Now when I get hungover, I have a two year old yelling in my face at 4 in the morning telling me she lost her pacifier and its SO not the same thing.

Have you seen Sherlock Holmes and Up in the Air yet? If they are out down under - they were awesome!

I am totally with you on Megan Fox and Transformers. Thank God I borrowed the DVD from my sister coz I would have been PISSED if i'd spent money on it! Fox has to be one of the worst actresses going round!
And also totally with ya on Sam Worthington...OMG! Can't get enough of his hottie goodness!

Kellyansapansa said...

So did you still think Sam Worthington was hot as a Smurf in Avatar?

Brown Girl said...

Ha, you are so funny. We'd make great real life friends! ;)

KLaw said...

You had quit the movie filled weekend! And yes, Megan Fox is SMOKIN!!!!! I'd totally do her. I'm just sayin.

Amy said...

The Meghan Fox comments are Right on! Love the pics and explanation of exactly what acting model she's trying to convey!

Also, Love the Sam Worthington quotes! I am not familiar with him at all, but he sounds delightful!!!

~KS said...

I was amused by Four Christmases... Have not seen Terminator Salvation but it's on my list. Transformers II- ugh. BORING. And all of your comments about Megan Fox had me laughing out loud... so true!!!
Hope to see Avatar soon... hope my ass doesn't go flat though!

HeatherLynn said...

Oh, Karls, you had to throw in that last part didn't you! so glad I got to your blog AFTER i was done eating lunch! lol you are too funny.

I have to say I pretty much fall into line with everything you said here, Megan Fox, pretty, but NOT an actress. some pretty people are just so prettier when they don't speak. I know that's not a very nice thing to say, but when the things you say just take away from your stunning presence, why fuck it up with a bunch of blah, blah, blah, am i right or am i right?

Four x-mases was a little predictable. I couldn't sit through Transformers II again either. you know who has assets that would of made a much prettier girl for that movie....Jessica Alba. Have you seen that girl's tush in "Into the Blue"? now that girl, yeah, she's not just an alternate for Megan, she's an our and out hands down UPGRADE!

I really should of been in casting! ;)

Just wanted to say thanks again for commenting on the super dooper long blog over at my page. I was afraid nobody would read/comment, and aside from you and just a few others, EVERYONE else shied away from it. which is disappointing...cuz I finally felt I had something worth writing...only to find not many found it worth reading. :(

anywhatever...have a great week luv!


Alicia said...

dude....megan fox is frigging dirty. i swear you get std's just by looking at her....the thought of sitting through another movie with her in it makes me want to stab myself in the eye.

At least I'm skinny said...

I'm definitely aboard the Megan Fox hate train.

bananas. said...

who the eff cares if she can act or not...megan fox is FUCKING HOTT!!!!!!! that's the boy in see i have a mad girl crush on her. it's not her fault the directors take advantage of her good looks by giving her lame line and having pose in awkward sexual ways. just sayin... ;)

anyway, mmm sam worthington...COME TO ME!!!!!!!! yum yum YUMMERSSS!!!

bananas. said...

ps. you poop kettle corn? that's AWESOME! BAHAHAHA!!!

kys said...

Your Megan Fox analysis is spot on. I don't know how she didn't end up in porn. Actually, there probably is some amateur porn of her somewhere. (I know there is in millions of men's heads anyway.)

Christine Vi said...

Hi! I'm new to your blog - (was browsing through quite a bit and landed here!)

I agree with your analysis of Megan Fox. I watched Transformers and appreciated the special effects. I remember reading somewhere that Megan Fox insulted the director of the movie, saying he relied too much on special effects. Well, did she know what movie she was acting in? She cracks me up.

Hope you're having a fantastic day!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Meghan Fox = Can't stand that girl. And I agree with your opinion of Transformers II. I watched Terminator Salvation in theaters and I think Christian and Sam were what kept me going - MMM good! 4 christmases was cute, but you're right predictable.
