I Would Do the Avatar Chick

Before I begin let me ask Juice, and all those who comment, to please advise ahead of time if you are spoiling what's happening on "Lost." I, too, am a big fan of the show but am about a season behind and watch the show thanks to NetFlix. I skipped your whole first paragraph.

Just got back from watching "Avatar." Pretty good movie, not great. But watching it in 3D is fucking mint. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it but think "Dances With Wolves" meets "Titanic" about 200 years from now. There are no surprises in this movie and I can't quite figure out how the critics used at Yahoo! gave this movie an "A". But, I will say this, I don't normally give a shit if I first see a movie in the theaters or at home (see "Dark Knight") but the 3D experience makes it worth the small fortune it costs to see it. (Note - the g/f thought it was great but admittedly is the type of person who gets convinced to buy something due to their commercials).

The sports betting is still ongoing but I'm running out of steam. I have about $150 remaining but I pretty much bet and don't know if I win or not until the next day.

Speaking of betting, I will be going back to Vegas again this year, probably around the time we were there a few months ago. So, ladies, start saving and get permission from your wives again. I also thought of a brilliant plan for 24 hour sports betting. I am a huge tennis fan, thus I am a huge Australian Open fan. Melbourne is about 17 hours ahead of our time in the US which means matches are ongoing when everyone is sleeping. Someday I will be in Vegas for this event and will be betting on tennis matches. When those are over the horse races will be close to starting. Perfect.

One of the best titled posts ever.

I thought I did a pretty good job of not ruining "Lost". I didn't specify anything. And even if I did try to explain something, it would make no fucking sense anyway.

I want to see Avatar in 3D, but I'm married to a woman who has never seen Star Wars, refuses to even watch it, and HATES it. Anything that could remotely be described as "Sci-Fi" is not allowed. And I'm not going to a movie by myself, because that is just sad. (Says the guy who saw Star Wars Episode III by himself).

That Vegas plan sounds like the coolest idea ever. The waitress wouldn't hate us at all after drinking Vodka/Cranberries for 24 straight hours (over/under 52.5 drinks). Also, I need to build up about 2 to 3 more years of goodwill before I am allowed to go again. How does the 2013 Australian Open sound?

I'm sorry! Did I spoil Lost? I would delete my comment, but I can't...I thought I was cryptic enough, but guess not. I don't have tivo so really, when people say to me, don't spoil it, I tivo'd it...well, we won't go there.

Anyways, I DESPISED Avatar. Hated it with a pure burning passion. It was 2 1/2 hours of pure torture. It was titanic with freaking aliens. kids like it though. And I LOVE science fiction, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Firefly/Serenity, all that crap...but this was just so sappy, it's like he ripped a page out of the george lucas storybook on how to make something visually stimulating to you don't notice the horrid dialogue...

Don't worry, Linda. I didn't actually read your comment. I saw you mention a character's name so I didn't read any further. No harm done.

Juice, your wife is one of my favorite character's ever.

I figured out how to delete the comment...duh, I was signed in.

Bear - you read the same script online that I read too, huh? That was funny as hell...isn't it like avatarsucks dot com or some such thing?
