...and lately it sucketh a lot. Work comes too soon to still be awake at this hour. Once I do get to sleep, one of the dogs is almost certain to wake me, between 0430 and 0530, wanting to go outside. Oh Joy!
Today is pay day for me. That being the case, I made a donation to the American Red Cross specifically to go toward relief efforts for the earthquake/tsunami disaster that recently struck Japan. If you have not given anything already, I urge you to do so to any legitimate organization that is helping the Japanese with relief efforts. Let's not let down one of our best allies and her people in their time of need. There are many organizations, helping out in Japan, to which you can give. I imagine they would be happy to receive anything from a dollar on up. It adds up but more importantly it helps.
...had, what has to be (for me at least) one of the best if not the best, single line from any movie ever:
"Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"
It made my 12 year old heart thump with excitement, and all the movie goers screamed in unison with approval, for the courage exhibited by the brave hero who spoke those lines in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
It was followed, a couple of minutes later, by what was probably, when taken in context, one of the second best movie lines ever:
"It’s a madhouse - a madhouse!"
Of course, the last lines of the movie were pretty good to:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it. (screaming) You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
Yep, I was just watching Planet of the Apes. When it came out, it was probably the best, most startling, awesome and advanced, sci-fi movie of its day. It easily still remains among the top 10, maybe even the top 5. No sequels, no television series, no remake(s) can do it justice.
