More importantly..

So I worked out a bit this week.  Not too much, but not too little either.  It was good to get back into the swing of things.  Despite going 2 weeks without swimming, I managed to not embarrass myself swimming for 30 minutes in the lake on Saturday with Scott, Ashley and Kerf.  The post-swim ride, however, showed just how fit the Honey Badger has gotten in the past month.  Wisconsin is going to be awesome!! To watch.

The best part of this week was spending lots of time at the movies.  Not great for my wallet as SOMEHOW every time I HAVE to purchase some sort of concession.  It's ridiculous.  Why do we feel compelled to pay 5 effing dollars for less than 20oz of soda.  It baffles me.  They must put crack in all their stuff.

Monday PM - The Bourne Legacy

Note: not from Bourne, but worth it anyway.
Jeremy Renner is an actor who has been garnering a lot of praise and critical acclaim for his roles in movies lately.  You might venture to say his "star is rising."  Especially considering he was chosen to lead a Bourne movie, the man is kind of a big deal now.  He isn't, however, Matt Damon.  This movie was super hyped and was definitely entertaining but unfortunately not nearly of the same caliber as the original three (and my favorite, the first).

Friday PM - The Campaign

Frank the Tank vs. Alan
With Will Ferrell, Zack Galifawho, and a great trailer how could one NOT want to go see this movie?! Well, I was in that camp.  The humor looked solid and mostly witty, the timing couldn't be better (I'm never interested in politics and if so only for a couple of weeks during the year) and I was in the mood to laugh out loud a little bit.  Unfortunately, the movie failed to deliver in almost all respects.  Really awful.  Don't spend the money on it in theater.

Sunday PM - The Expendables 2

So many steroids, so little time.
Alright, so if you go into a movie like this with the right perspective (awesomely bad) you'll be satisfied.  If you go into it thinking that you're going to get a quality action flick with a decent and somewhat understandable plot line with good character development and good story arc well then you're just an idiot.  Name a big action movie in the past 20 years (or more) and it's likely that the star of that movie was in this one.  This "franchise" is designed purely as a vehicle to blow sh*t up with (former) big name stars in as epic a fashion as possible.  I enjoyed it thoroughly.  Much more so than the Campaign.

Next week I'll talk about training more.  Maybe.
