Why in the Heck?

Why the heck is salycilic acid in Carmex?
It's chapstick. It doesn't need pimple medicine.

I found Drew's tube of Carmex on the floor. He dropped it while he was here.
So I've been using it.
Cuz Carmex makes my lips tingly.
It's like fairies are sprinkling tingly dust on my lips.Other than the magical discovery of the tingle inducer, nothing exciting has happened today.
Like really, nothing.
We sold some of our den furniture. We're gonna buy some new stuff.
We're also selling my bedroom suite for 300 dollars. The bridge and the two towers and the headboard. Then I'm getting a new one.
I'm gonna get a bed with drawers under it, and a new headboard.
The stuff I have right now is really heavy.
And we really don't want to carry it to the new house. We're having to get rid of stuff because the new house is smaller.
But we did manage to get some carpets. We got them on sale and everything, so at least the floors won't be horribly frozen now.

I'm watching The Legend of Bagger Vance at the moment.
I love Will Smith. I've seen practically every movie he's in. Watched Six Degrees of Separation a few nights ago.
Man that movie is a sad movie. Incase you don't know what it's about, it's about Will Smith lying his way into some rich people's lives. But he doesn't steal anything. He just develops this whole story about himself and then leaves soon after.
Eventually it turns out that he's most likely mentally ill, and really think this story he's created is his life.
And then he kills himself in prison.

But man, listening to Will Smith portray this character was amazing. He had so many monologues and he barely took a breath during them. Every bit had to be memorized.
I just love listening to his voice. There's something about him that's hard to NOT like.
I mean really, how could you not like him? He's so versatile. He can play a gangster, a businessman, GOD (Like in Bagger Vance).
I'd marry him if I weren't 16 and he weren't married.
I'd drug him and force him to marry me, because I love him that much.
And I hope no one ever drugs him, because I bet the FBI will find this post and be like "SHE DID IT."
It's just a musing, not a plan.

And Matt Damon's in this movie too. He's good, but I don't love him. Plus he's got a mean case of ugo-face nowadays.
Plus that last Bourne movie left me going "That movie SUCKED like a vacuum with a clean filter."
The camera shaked to the point that I just wanted to leave the theatre. I can understand wanting to be "gritty", but there's a difference between "gritty" and "I just handed a five year old this camera and told him to point it in this general direction and his tiny body can't support it so he's shaking the whole time."
3rd movies seem to be the killer.
Oh, and has anyone seen "Crank"? That one with Jason Statham?
Where they injected him with something and he had to keep his adrenaline pumping to stay alive?
Well they've made a second one.
Right where the first left off.
With the same characters.

Am I the only one that saw Jason go SMASH into the car at the end of the movie?
After he jumped out of an airplane?
Yeah, he jumped out of an airplane with NO parachute and smashed into a car.
I want to know how he "survived" this. So gimmicky.

Anyway, this movie post was brought to you today by: The Boreder Brothers
Makers of such hits as: Oh God I'm so bored I could cry.
Can't we do something fun today?
and the ever classic Please save me from this torturous boredom before I scoop my eyes out with spoons.

I did a post about Matt Damon a long time ago, and how I always loved him and hated stupid Ben, but my brother looks sort of like Damon, and it's kind of creepy.

I actually love all the Bourne movies. I think he does a good job.

I too love Will Smith. I can see why you would want to drug him and force him to marry you. Jada Pinkett-Smith is one lucky woman!

I don't really care for any of the Bourne movies (sorry Kristina). And speaking of shaky films have you seen Cloverfield? I got motion sick watching that and had to leave the theater to get a Coke. Yes I did.

To quote Robin Hood:
Guy of Gisborne: Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?

Sheriff of Nottingham: Because it's DULL, you twit. It'll hurt more.

I love that movie...I also do like the Bourne movies too. I like Willie boy, but do not like all his movies such as 6 degrees and even Bagger. To each their own.

yah, don't you hate boring days like that?! Love Will Smith also!!

Ok, off to finish watching The Duchess.

Carmex is also used for fever blisters. That's why it has salycilic acid. We keep some here because Bryan and I are both prone to fever blisters.

I have not see any of those movies but Crank. I liked Crank. I think Will Smith is ok. He's not one of my favorites.

I hated 6 Degrees, it was a lil weird for me. Bagger Vance he is God?! I have never seen that one and I LOVE Will Smith too. Ihated The Pursuit...only because he cries so much and when he cries, I cry. He is amazing in I AM Legend and it is basically him and that AWESOME dog the whole movie, Will rocks!!

Yaya said...

It always amazes me how every single movie will smith does is perfect.


Regarding Breaking Dawn....it's dragging at the moment bc it's Jacob's story right now...

Stesha said...

Love Will Smith too. Matt Damon not so much.

Burt's beeswax is great on the lips too.

Hey Lee,

Glad your feeling better.

Those movie reviews were great. You should be a critic. I did enjoy Crank, but then again it was a guy flick.
As for Carmex, I know people that are addicted to that stuff and wear it all the time. That tingly feeling seems to be addictive in some people. Interesting.

Will Smith is an amazing actor. I've loved him (as an actor) since I saw Bad Boys. I think I've seen that first one like 50+ times lol. The second one I've seen quite a few times as well though. :)
