2008 Year In Review: I Actually Wrote Something Every Month This Year

I did this last year. It's a very lazy way of doing a year in review post. My favorite kind!

January:
[it is NEW YORK]
Waldo Lydecker: I remember that hot, hot day when Laura died...so hot, in fact, that when I received the officer investigating her murder, I was in the bathtub.

February:
When I think of bare-knuckle boxing, land rushes, and the Irish, I think of one man: THE CRUISE.

March:
They say if you can remember the 1960's, then you weren't there. Laura McClain sure wasn't.

April:
[it is OLD-TIMEY ENGLAND]
Keira Knightley: I have so many sisters! We're poor! Kind of! My mom is annoying! Let's go to a ball!

May:
[it is LOS ANGELES]
Insanely Adorable Child: La, la, la...my arm is broken, so I have to be in the hospital, which I apparently can wander around all the livelong day. But where is that note I wrote to the nice nurse?

June:
[it is AFGHANISTAN]
Robert Downey Jr: You can tell that I am insouciant by the fact that I am drinking scotch in a military vehicle. I'm so droll!

July:
Yes, technically this movie was released in 1990, but it must have been filmed in the 80s, so that's what I'm sticking with.

August:
I've been trying to write this one for years. YEARS, I tell you. I just love it so much, and have seen it so many times, and know so many lines...it's like trying to describe every mole and freckle on your own body to someone. A daunting task.

September:
[it is CLARK COUNTY]
Seth Rogen: I am perfect for the job of process server, because I am schlumpy and easy to forget. Also I have many costumes in my trunk. Off to serve some subpoenas!!
[he just SITS in his CAR and SMOKES POT]

October:
This movie is seriously great. Please do not use this condensed version as a substitute for the real thing. Also, A MILLION people are in it. It's great.

November:
Yes, I'm aware that this is a movie typically associated with a particular season, one we're not actually officially all up in yet (though Duane Reade has had Christmas candy for, like, weeks).

December:
[it is CALIFORNIA]
Jennifer Lopez: So many jobs! I'm a dogwalker and a temp and I design clothes and I am sassy!

So, it's 10am today. I'm at work. I shouldn't be because it's slow, but I think, "I can read up on the latest lifetime movies..."

I hit enter.
Your site is now blocked in corporate America. Under what heading, you wonder? It blocked it because it said your site was (don't laugh) pornographic.

I looked. No breasts. No man junk. Me = confused and no reviews at work. Pity!

Noooooooooooooooo!!

You know what I think it must be?
[they BONE and it is HOT]

That's been used more than once. So pornographic!

This site is actually my sole source of porn. Weird?

Such variety this past year! I did this review, too, and will perhaps lazily post it today!

I don't understand how reading about boning and how hot it is can make me any less productive than I already am at work. Because, lets face it, there's no boning at work (at least at mine) and it's not hot.
