Analyze This

I'm watching Analyze this right now. It's kind of funny, mostly just amusing at the moment. Let me just say right off the bat that Robert DeNiro cannot cry on film. It was so incredibly fake, I really thought that he was supposed to be fake crying as part of the story, but it wasn't the case.

But let me talk more about Billy Crystal. I have not seen him play any role other than this one, excepting the princess bride Miracle Max role. But in everything else, he plays an insincere, relationally inept, semi-intellectual woose. Here he's a psychiatrist, and though he can fit the role well, I'm just tired of it. It's not interesting, when the schmuck is lying to his fiance/wife, because he can't seem to bear to tell someone the truth, for almost no reason whatsoever. Insincerity drips from Billy Crystal's mouth in every role he plays, and it's just not interesting anymore.

Other than that, it's fun to watch Deniro go ape nuts and run his mouth off in angry tirades.

Things Going Good

My tomatoes have been ripening, finally. We picked and ate the first one about a week ago, Cassie and I. We were invited to dinner by another couple, and we ate it with them. It was probably the best tomato I've ever eaten. So incredibly juicy and tasty.

Anyway, life is going well. I'm looking forward to getting married. For those that are wondering, the invitations are going out soon. I'm really looking forward to living with my new wife. Seeing one another every day, with the convenience of not having to walk one another to the door to say goodnight. I'm incredibly thankful and happy about it.

I finished the third draft of my novel recently. So I just want to ask people to pray for me, because I really want to get it published, and I need to get the attention of an agent/publisher to do so. It's exciting to me, and I really want it to happen soon. So thanks in advance for your prayers.

Pray for my brother, too. He's in Nepal., for anyone who's interested. He updates his blog more frequently when he's out of the country than when he's home.

I just want to thank God and everyone else, because I'm so happy right now, with life and all the good things happening. God is very good to me. Thanks
