Wow, have I been in a bad mood. I was in such a funk that posting here would have frightened all five of my readers away. You’ll be relieved to know that I have snapped out of it. No more funk. Sometimes getting out of the house and doing something fun will do that for you. Last night I went to see the X-men movie with Billy and his friend who’s visiting from Boston for the week. Even though the movie was not one I probably would have seen otherwise and even though I found it only so-so, it was nice to get out. There was dinner afterwards, too.
Last night I saw the trailer for the movie “Snakes on a Plane.” It’s about, um, snakes. On a plane. First of all, did someone actually think that would be a good plot for a movie? And second of all, what were the writers, directors and whoever else thinking when they titled this movie?
Important writer/director person #1: What should we call this movie?
Important writer/director person #2: Well, let’s see, it’s about snakes. On a plane.
Important writer/director person #1: Hmm. Snakes on a plane.
Important writer/director person #2: Oh! I’ve got it! “Snakes on a Plane”!
Important writer/director person #1: That’s our winner, Bob!
