Eat Pray Bingo



This afternoon I took myself to a showing of Eat Pray Love. What else did I have to do?
(The film version of the above is, sadly, not out yet, except maybe on x-tube)*found by way of Elizabeth


Anyway, I'm embarrassed to admit I'd been looking forward to seeing it. I'm a sucker for these sorts of chick flicks. I'm not proud of it, I'm just being honest. I can't help it.

I mean I do love World Market after all.

It was ok. I kind of hate Julia Roberts, but anything with James Franco and Javier Bardem is worth 7 dollars I figured, right? I had pretty low expectations, but it turned out to be
adequate. Not good or anything, but ok.
It was, however, much too long. But that's my standard complaint with every movie. I forgot my handy dandy Eat Pray Love Bingo sheet, which was just as well, since I'd have gotten bingo during the credits and that would have left me with nothing to do for the other 10 hours.


Inspired, I took a post movie pilgrimage to Target, Whole Foods and Shell. If you squinted hard enough, the cashier at the Shell looked exactly like a Balinese guru.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure his "do you want a bag for that?" is a prophecy of some sort.

Oooooooooo is that Fabio on "Eat Pray Love Bingo???" He was recently on "Big Time Rush" (so I heard). And yes to James & Javier, and NO to JR because her acting consists of teeth, laughing and staring cross-eyed into the camera. She was okay in "Mystic Pizza" but that's because she "Ate, Acted & Aced" her way through her first movie, whereas now she's lazy with auto-pilot movies. Yes, bag James, please!

I do believe it is, Margaret. Too bad he wasn't in it. I'd like to see a rom com with him romancing a goose....on a rollercoaster.
Or maybe that'd be porn.

My trio would've been London, Paris & Madrid. Being that Londoners love a good drink, I'm not one for gambling but love a great museum. And Spain, good lord. Spain.

I thought, briefly about seeing the movie. Then I found out Julia Roberts was going to be in it. My interest was gone.

I read the book. I enjoyed the eating part. The praying part was just too much for me. Yeah, anybody is going to get some "enlightenment" when they go for long periods of time without food.

Then that love part, where we had to hear about her urinary tract infection. Good God!

I finished the book, shot it the finger, and then put it in the giveaway pile.

But, I could probably stand to look at James Franco for a few minutes.

Jason,
Miss J is more convinced than ever that if she lived in NOLA she and Jason would indeed be inseparable. Both kinda hatingJuliaRoberts (is showing your bra really Pscar-worthy???) and loving World Market... What times they would have together!

Have not read book or seen movie, which of course leaves me completely free to make fun of them both!

Yay for chick flicks. I watched Crimes Of The Heart for the first time in years the other night on Hulu. The next day a friend was over, a 27 year old straight boy, he's from the south and I told him he had to see it, so I sat through it again with him.

I love this kid because here we both were, hunched over a small computer screen laughing and weeping through the whole thing!

LOL at this, Jason!
