We watched 27 dresses last night. This movie is another in a long line of Hollywood formula
chick flicks romance comedies that just doesn't know how to end. If a movie ends with sappy admissions from both of the leads, it's just disappointing. Isn't that what they all do? Katherine Heigl is worth watching in this, though, but only if you can buy her as a sad sack second banana. Her beauty is a handicap in that regard but she still somehow pulls it off. The movie should have ended 10 minutes earlier than it did. The ending was unsatisfying and epilogues never add anything to a story.
About the QOTD: Leave it to a professional sports franchise owner to be a stick in the mud. The New Orleans Hornets are a very good, very exciting team led by superstar Chris Paul. They're 3-0 on the young season, got a huge bump in season ticket sales, and sold out ALL of their luxury suites. Of course, he doesn't want to dwell on any of that for too long. Here's some free, unsolicited, unwanted advice from CrabAppleLane: Put some of your good time profits aside NOW for those days "when it slips".
I offer one today from Bogue Falaya Wayside Park from Thursday's lunch hour.

Right now, we are on a high, but we have to accept the fact that we are not always going to be on a high. And when it slips, we are going to have some help.

Quote from said blog: "It's your classic recipe for a romantic comedy with love triangles, repressed feelings, and the most cliche of all, having the one you love standing right in front of you without you even knowing it."
