So, is this REALLY the end of the woot off or not? The other sites are still going.

Edit: monkeys are gone. Something else is up. I'm going to bed. If a brand new monkey comes up, please get one for me. Thank you. Merci beaucoup! Gracias!

Reminder of movies to skip in the future ....

A Serious Man .... probably typical Coen brothers, but really hated the ending. And the middle. And the beginning.

The American with George Clooney. Another really bad ending. And why were the Swedes after him in the first place? Another waste of DVR space.


I want to be entertained. Neither movie was entertaining.

I loved The American. Ironic, Karma rich, subtle and redemptive - all wrapped up in a nice wooly sweater of 1950s genre. Plus, Clooney. Oh dear God, Clooney.

But that's not what I came here to say. What I came here to say is that this has been my most expensive woot-off in a long, long time. Maybe that's because I have missed so many tempting buys during my tiwbm (tuition imposed, thanks to 2 sons who felt very strongly that college was a good thing) or maybe I am just a weak and naughty girl, but so far I'm in for 2 different wines and truffle oil. I am simultaneously ecstatic and disgusted with myself.

Not sure how to check out all these places. But I'll have to visit some I suppose. And try some wines.



Just pick based on proximity to your preferred wine region! Or talk to WD and see if he'll take you on as a deal-maker for some Washington wineries.

Clooney was good, but it never fully developed why he was "bad". And I kept hoping they would develop his "metamorphosis" into a better man (i.e. develop his conscious). So I hated the ending.

But that was the beauty of it. Initially, he just was bad. Was his decision to be so pragmatic or a reaction to early losses or was he simply amoral? The viewer gets to write that story line. But [spoiler alert] in the end he gave all of himself, literally and figuratively, to the exact same type of woman whom he had to dispatch in the first scene. Circle of life. He couldn't make it right for the first, whom he clearly loved but who - sadly - played a sacrificial lamb, so he made it right for 2.0. I loved it. Nonetheless, to each his own.

Soooo, for those of you playing along at home 12:15 was the exact moment at which I began to consider the fact that 4 miles on the treadmill tomorrow morning (oops, today morning) would be almost as good as 90 minutes at Bikram. Dang nabbit, I am getting way too good at rationalizing things this w-o. Better call it a night before I decide that eating cheesecake constitutes aerobic exercise. Peace out, my beloved wooters.

Just the Victory and now the Hawley (missed it the first time).


And you didn't know why he did it initially (or later), since she could have set him up. The others were all self-defense, so it was just that one instance that you weren't sure why he did it or why he was "bad". It was limp.

His character just never fully developed to me as to why he considered himself "bad". There were no flashbacks to his evil side.

Contrast Val Kilmer's (has he gotten fat or what?) character in Blind Horizon. Much more development of how he was "bad" and has now changed. As good as Clooney can be, his acting was not memorable in The American.

To my nurses out there....got a question:

I've been fighting this fever of death since Sunday (maybe even Sat) with temps going back and forth between the 99's to the 103's. I finally went to the doc last night (temp was like 103.7) and got two prescriptions (the generic for Augmentin & 800mg ibuprofen) so as of last night I'm hitting myself with drugs. They did the culture test and nothing came up as bacterial but she gave me the antibiotic anyway.
Woke up this morning with temp again at 103. Obviously when I lie covered I'm getting warm sweats. Right now sitting at the computer I'm feeling cold sweats. My glands (or lymph nodes, or whatever I might be feeling) seem a little sore...maybe. Got pretty much a constant headache that dwindles a little bit here and there, and back aches from the past few days of just lying around. I have to actually work some today cuz I'm the only one who knows how to do what needs to get done tonight, but I'm doing it remotely from home.

My main questions. Should I take a cool shower, or a warm/hot shower? Should I spend most of the day in bed, as a sweaty blob under my sheets and comforter or should I let some cooler air be around me without the comforter? I currently have my condo at 79 degrees....should I bump it up to a higher temp or is that just fine?

I absolutely, positively, have to be rid of this fever by Friday when I pick up cheron98 from the airport. And I'd also rather not have to stay home from work again tomorrow (I've never used up 4 PTO days in a row on being sick )

The American

*** NOTE: THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS ***

After watching it, two other movies are already made that are similar to it. One being worse than The American and the other being much better. The one that is worse is Bangkok Dangerous. Which is just a horrible movie, but at least the body count makes up for it in the end. The other is Le Samourai by Jean-Pierre Melville. This is definitely much better than the other two movies and more subtle. Like The American, there is not much talk and not much action. The acting and the camera work develops the story. One would think the director for The American took a page out of Melville's book. I've heard it's also similar to Luc Besson's "Leon: The Professional" but I cannot say for certain in that regard. I watched The American once, probably never again. Le Samourai I'll watch again.

I know I didn't give specific spoilers but if you have seen either of the other two movies then you can get the gist of this movie.

Point Break Reboot/Remake

*** NOTE: THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS ***

In other news I heard they are doing a reboot/remake of Point Break. Obviously with new actors but apparently the same names and instead of surfing it'll be another extreme sport. My question, isn't the Fast and the Furious franchise then the reboot but with different names? Are they also just picking all the Patrick Swayze movies and redoing them first Dirty Dancing and now this?

Just in case people haven't seen either Point Break or Fast and the Furious. Although there should be a statute of limitations on movies for spoilers.

And nothing working. Did get to the Info Correct, but still 503.


On the bright side, it still only looks about 5% gone on the yellow bar.

The Hawley is a great call. I'm hoping the Meeker is to my liking, since I've got 10 bottles now. I'm surprised you're saying there are a lot of maybes on it, actually. Those who let it breathe seemed uniformly impressed and the notes make the wine sound powerful but not Parkerized to me.
