a december to remember

1. A Car With A Bow.
You know those annoying Lexus commercials intended for rich people who don't care about looking rich, even in today's economy? The ads that depict people walking out to their driveways Christmas morning, only to see a brand new Lexus all wrapped up in a pretty bow?

Why should the fact that you can't afford a Lexus -- or any car, for that matter -- prevent you from giving one as a gift? Besides, nothing signifies the act of giving more than sticking a bow on something, anything. So this Christmas, head out onto your street or into your neighborhood in the middle of the night and wrap whatever car you wish you could give in a giant red bow. Why stop at one? Wrap five cars, or all of them! Then, in the morning, march your robe-clad loved one out there and surprise him or her with the gift of momentary, fleeting, unobtainable luxury. Take a picture, because that's the one thing they can keep (aside from the bow, of course).
this sounds like the best christmas ever.

an education: new moon sucks this doesn't

i just got out of seeing this movie with my friend emily. it is FANTASTIC. we couldn't stop talking about it. the most fascinating thing is that on the face of it it's completely predictable but we were left guessing the whole time. the character arc is phenomenal! the emotional wave it takes you through is mind blowing. i'm still trying to figure one of the characters out and my mind is loving the challenge. oh gosh, i desperately want to explain the beauty of this film but i lack the critiquing skills and writing ability. all i can say is that it is a finely crafted film and it's left me feeling enthused more than any movie has in a long time. GO SEE IT!
