Random note #1
Casino Royale was a fun romp, as they say. After seeing Daniel Craig in action as the new Bond, I finally understand the appeal. He's quite the hunk. Hmm...oh, where was I?

"Claro" is currently my favorite Spanish word (translated in English as "of course"). Having seen a few Spanish-language films of late, I've noticed "claro" is used frequentally in quite a range of tones (condescendingly, reassuringly, flirtatiously, flippantly) and it always sounds snappy. I like saying it to myself. Claro, claro, claro!

I've grown tired of the cliched quip, "If you looked up (blank) in the dictionary, you'd see a photo of (person's name)." So I've come up with an alternate: "If you Google'd (blank), (person's name.com) would come up as the most relevant link." Use it, don't use it.

Doesn't the casting for the upcoming film The Holiday look like the cinematic equivalent of wrapping up a bad tie? I mean, really, pairing Kate Winslet and Jack Black and boob jokes? Seems like a titanic mistake to me. And Cameron Diaz matched with Jude Law? She's more masculine than that bonny lad!
Let's just say if you Google'd the casting of The Holiday, badideajeans.com would be the most relevant link.
