Watching Movies, Cookouts, and Wrestling:The Weekend Wrap-Up

Friday:

I got off work, ran some errands, and watched Evan Almighty. I thought it was a good movie. Some of the critics are giving it a C, and saying that it was too sappy, but so what? What's wrong with a good family film? I like Steve Carrell (The Office, Bruce Almighty, Little Miss Sunshine), and I like Lauren Graham (Bad Santa, Gilmore Girls). Plus, you have the incomparable talents of Morgan Freeman as God. I didn't find it sacrilegous. I liked it. Wanda Sykes (New Adventrues of Old Christine, Pootie Tang) was also funny. After that, I went home, chilled out, and watched Friday Night Smackdown!! Ah, wrestling. It is truly sports and entertainment rolled into one.

Saturday:

I got off work, went home and changed clothes, and hung out over Arnold Edwards' apartment. Arnold Edwards is a good friend and director that I work with. Shout out to his girlfriend, Dayna Hinkle (Divine Manipulation, Delusions), Jarrod, Glen Ring (Dollars and Signs, Rommel's Crossroad), Wasabi Jones (Curbside Confessions, Eat), and the rest of Arnold's family and friends. We played a little volleyball, cooked some hot dogs, chitchatted, and I watched people play Mario Cart and Guitar Hero II. A few of Arnold's friends were shocked because I don't drink (what else is new?), but it was cool. I left Arnold's place at, like, 2 in the morning. I haven't been in his apartment in a long time. Arnold's been busy editing Curbside Confessions. I believe in Mr. Edwards and I believe that the movie will be great. I haven't seen anything, but I know Arnold's work ethic and character.

Sunday:

I went to Jordan's for a little Sunday afternoon karoke. Imagine my surprise when there was a party being held on the karaoke side. It was a little crowded, but I still sang "Used to Love You" by John Legend (I was pitchy), and "All Night Long" by Lionel Richie. Some of the young kids shocked me, though. This one African-American boy sang "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", a country song about a woman with a large posterior. That shocked me!! These other girls sang "Holidae Inn", "Laffy Taffy", and "Lady Marmalade". Underage girls singing a song about prostitution? A little creepy.
After that, I went to my friend Shomari's house and watched the WWE pay-per-view Vengeance. It was kinda crummy, but I enjoyed the fellowship.

I am "between gigs" now, and many of my friends are editing, but I am definitely looking forward to the weekend. My job will be closed from June 30-July4. I return to work on July 5. That will be awesome!! Be easy, readers

PS Happy birthday to 90s rapper Candyman (he's 39) and actor Jimmie "JJ" Walker (he's 60).
