btw

i went and saw the departed friday night. it was really good! the cast kicked ass (except for vera farmiga, who didn't get much stuff to do and had the limpest haircut ever, which made her not-hot. i liked her better on touching evil, but whatever. i'm such a girl-snob, haha - i hate when a movie is given lots of sparkly male roles, and then they bring in an obligatory chick and gives her nothing to do. lame.) and it had good twists and funny lines.

oh, and more boston-accents than you could shake a stick at. dudes yelling "cack-sacker" makes me giggle, what can i say.

to get in the mood: dropkick murphys - i'm shipping up to boston off the soundtrack. definitely has me bouncing around. i've never listened to the band before, only read the name in passing - do they have more songs i might like in the same vein? anyone know? uh... jeremy? hahahaha.

more things making me grin: the creator of my name is earl spent months setting up a gag just for televisionwithoutpity.com. i thought the shoutout on air was funny enough, but this meta-stuff is really awesome. especially fans getting to e-mail with characters on the show, haha - "Joy" is very Joy, even in typing. love it. :D

thanks for the mp3 link. i've always wanted to hear what the dropkick murphys sounded like but have been too lazy to investigate. so far i think i like The Pogues better, but i do like the bounciness of this track.

no problem :) i've been wondering about them as well but it wasn't until the movie where i liked the way they used the song that i decided to investigate. i'm not sure i'd like lots more of the band, but if they have a few more like this one, i'd like to hear them because.. bouncy. haha.

hey! the bed you bought? BEAUTIFUL! i've been meaning to say that for ages, but have been really out of tune with lj and kept missing making comments for too long.

thank you, regarding the bed! i can't wait for it to be delivered! :)

speaking of other lj related stuff, angela informed me you might be coming here in July if she visits? you must! i'd love to meet both of you.

yes indeed - any visit to europe by the angela family is sure to bring me along, haha, so consider it a "buy one, get one free" deal. ;) i'd love to meet you too - as you know, i'm sure. of course, i won't know more until angela knows more, it's still very loose, early plans, but i do hope they come through.

cool. even if angela's plans don't come through (and i hope they do) you're always welcome to come and visit us anyway! :)
