Shut the door.

Movies are supposed to be realistic, right?

Why then, in so many movies, do characters leave car doors and house doors wide open when they pass through? Usually the action isn't intense enough to justify omitting that split second extra time to close the door. But honestly... nobody just leaves the door wide open. Has it been scientifically tested that closing the door detracts from the drama? Because if anything, leaving it open is the biggest detractor, since in my head I'm screaming "close the door, buffoon!"

The Adult Crossover?

Watching Heavenly Creatures the other day made me realize I may be gleaning toward the adult side of life more than the youthful one. Granted the girls in that film are crazy-azz-mofos—Kate WInslet can do it all—I found myself empathizing with the parents and absolutely dreading the girls' antics. Was I supposed to feel that way? Because the movie was about the girls and that nobody understood them. While the film was terrific, I couldn't really understand them, either, and wished they would just listen to their parents' advice.

Job interviews have been going on in these parts. In a week or so, I may have one of them FT with Bennies. It'd be my first ever actual job. Talk about the real adult crossover.

But I can't get ahead of myself.
