    Less painful than reading this..

    It's improving.

    We are considering a trip to the coast one day this weekend while my children are with their father for some surfing and to force some exercise into it. If I can get my arm in my wetsuit, then it will have improved.

    Oh, and, woman - you are favorable toward porn for adults, but you have a problem acknowledging compensatory fantasies?
    Duh.

    Twilight is indeed God-awful, but Legally Blond is actually pretty good. Not exactly heavyweight stuff, but entertaining enough to bear repeated viewings.

    The woman had a chihuahua for a pet, which she dressed to match her own outfits.

    Enough said..

    And correction. I am favourable to adults being allowed to look at porn without having to ask the State or their ISP for permission first. There is a difference.

    Mildly entertaining, maybe. But inspirational?

    I don't see it.

    But to each their own.:shrug:

    It had a pretty clearly inspirational theme, although it's so cheesy I can see why people wouldn't draw much real inspiration from it... Still, though, several of the key "inspirational" scenes (like the protagonist's commencement speech) are played essentially straight and are reasonably stirring by Hollywood comedy standards.

    So do Chuck Norris movies and his TV show.

    I just found it cloying and mildly entertaining. Laughed a bit and then went home. I drew more inspiration out of Close Encounters.

    As I said, to each their own.

    Well, yeah. The guy's a living legend - what could be more inspirational than that?

    You cheered at the end of Top Gun, didn't you?

    Yeah, but only because it was such a huge relief for the massive amount of gay sexual tension between Maverik and Iceman throughout the whole movie to finally be resolved via repressed bro-hugging and high-fivery.

    "No, you can by my wingman any time, hot stuff!" :limpwrist:
