I've had it with these motherf@#$ing snakes on this motherf@#$ing plane!
Even though the movie officially opens today, the theatre was packed at last night's 10pm showing of the cult-like internet-driven phenomenon, Snakes on a Plane. When Samuel L. Jackson uttered those words (ostensibly written by a blogger and added to the movie after a massive internet campaign), the whole theatre shouted along with him, hooting and hollering!
The movie was a gas. It was hilarious. It was scary. It was gross. It made my skin crawl. It made me lift my feet up off the floor more than once. If I'd had popcorn, I can guarantee it would've ended up all over the place from my jumping and jolting. All in all, I can't wait to see it again, and I may have to own the DVD when it's released. It really is that good.

And now, like millions of bloggers before me... I will blog my first Apple purchase.
I'm rather notoriously anti-Apple, though as their machines get slicker and slicker (not to mention the killer specs) it's hard to remain a totally PC gal. I've been an Apple enabler in the past -- I got the wife a shiny white iPod video last year. But we don't use iTunes, and it's hers.
However, after receiving a gift certificate from my boss, along with a note of encouragment to "come on over to the dark side," I have, like Anakin Skywalker before me, done just that.
Here are pictures of my brand-spanking-new black iPod nano. It really is impossibly small! (Collage courtesy of Picasa 2.)
Since this isn't exactly my first Apple experience (I'm the one who had to deal with the technical details of getting the wife's video iPod loaded and ready to go), I know what to expect. I'm hoping the battery life is decent, and I'm looking into how to carve a hole into my running shoes so that I don't have to buy new Nikes to take advantage of this.
Hopefully I won't be running back to the Apple store in 2 weeks, cuz this shiny new gadget is awfully cute and needs a good home!
