That last review took forever. June till January? Some procrastination may have occurred. Shameful! If I had committed to writing just two words a day, I would have finished it one week sooner.
2016 is a new, faster leaf that I plan to turn over, and I will eat that leaf quickly, like it is a salad. A victory salad of achievement! You will see! I guarantee it, almost. And how do I guarantee it? Well, we’re going to assign one more movie the old-fashioned way… and then we’re going to launch a new, potentially excellent, speed-o-matic system that I can currently reveal to the public only under its code name: Operation Mistake Binge.
We will get into the details of Operation Mistake Binge after the next review. (NOTE: If you want to vlog about it in the meantime to build excitement among Millennials, I’m okay with you using the abbreviation “OMB.”) But let’s pick today’s movie as we have picked them since Biblical times — with a game in the comments!
Real estate figured prominently in our last movie, and also will figure prominently in the real life of whichever monster wins Powerball this week (currently up to $10 jigillion). Thus today’s game is The Mansion Game.
Tell us about your dream house. The one you would buy or build if money were no object. Obviously you’re a great human being, so first you would make sure to buy tiny houses for all the homeless, and cure cancer and the environment, but then, let’s say you still have most of your money left. What kind of house do you want? Do you want a giant clock window so you always wake up early and annoyed? Is every staircase spiral? Does it have a moat — and if so, is the moat wisely electrified to prevent ants? Is there an edible escape pod for some reason? A room only for dolls? TELL US ABOUT YOUR BEST HOUSE.
The winner will be whoever’s dreamhouse most appeals to either current me or 12-year-old me (depending on what mood I am in when this gets posted). Be sure and pick a number between 1 and 166, dreamers.
