Kim Jung Il starring in Team AmericaTeam America will be great. trey parker and matt stone were just on Conan moments ago, and the more i hear about this flick the more excited i get about seeing it this weekend. with any luck i'll be going for a 2nd viewing come movie weekend in little over a week. following Shaun of the Dead, the down period for post-summer releases seems to be picking up.

the final debate was this evening but i haven't watched it yet (i taped it, natch). it should provide a few more yuck-yucks while i'm sloggin' thru FireRed during the wee hours. oh btw, i discovered last night that USA Network's Frankenstein isn't an apparent mini-series. it's just a 2hr movie. which makes no sense considering the "movie" ends w/o an ending and very unsolved. i question whether this was just a set up for a potential series but then i still have to question the participation of the actors involved. bizarre.

welp i made a major fuckup today when i thought i booked my thanksgiving flight to abq new mexico. my brother called tonight to inform me, after reviewing the itinerary i sent him, that my flight departs abq on 11/25 and arrives back in abq from chicago on 11/30. um, how the fuck did i not notice that i booked the reverse flight? i'm sure when i call american airlines it'll cost me a pretty penny to get this flight changed. oh fun. and on a day when i donated another $25 to the city of des plaines for expired tags (that's 3 years in a row, folks!).

the upside to this week is that i successfully hired 2 more acct mgrs for my dept who both start on monday. and god knows (he does) we need the help. fuck, *i* need the help. and these are guys with some experience under their collective belts so i have high expectations. none of that affirmative action/train 'em and hope they do well bullshit (sorry, but i've had some bad experiences over the years). let's just hope they show up on monday. so that and the fact that my hearless leader is out all week have made things somewhat more palatable at thee ole office.

i've come to accept that i have a life-threatening addiction to pokemon. no, i'm not ashamed to admit this (however, i am ashamed of this behavior). life-threatening? yep. because life outside of pokemon almost ceases to exist and i have a strange feeling that things are falling apart around me. yet i'm too preoccupied to notice. i'd say between that and Hunter X Hunter anime, i'm not really giving life a fair shake these days. and that's threatening.

last night i finished downloading another 36(!) episodes of Hunter X Hunter (i'm so glad this is still a free fansub!). i watched 5 eps yesterday and another 4 so far today. the show continues to get better and better. and it's hella violent for a "cutesy" shounen. honestly, it's not all that cutesy but does build on its foundation of friends sticking together to accomplish a goal; in this case, passing the ever-so-difficult hunter exam. damn, it's a great anime.

when i attempt to sleep at night or morning, my head is swimming with pokemon strategy and HxH. so, yeah, i have a problem. another reason to catch a flight the fuck out of here to new mexico for a few days but i can't even get that right. yep, it's threatening.
