I went this weekend to see the Indiana Jones movie, despite my no spending in May (how can you say no to Indy?). It was pretty good, not great, but pretty good. Don't get me wrong, the people at Lucas Films and Stephen Spielberg know their stuff when it comes to all the special effects and even just the feel-good adventure that is what makes the Indiana Jones movies so great. But, either my expectations were through the roof with reality no where else to go but down or it just was not as good as the previous three. I'm not sure which it is. It seemed like I was just waiting for the big wow but it never came. And to be honest, it kinda reminded me of the second Mummy movie, you know the one with Brenden Frazier. It had alot of things in common with that movie. All that being said, it is definitely something you should go see in the theater because with all the special effects and such, unless you have a really big TV with a really good sound system, it's just better in the theater. Of course, the acting was, as it always is, stellar. And, really, Harrison Ford at any age is, well, yummy. Shia Labeouf is a really great young actor and he plays this part decently. So, go, see it for yourself and let me know what you think.
Julia Roberts is nuts...not the put her in a straight jacket kinda nuts but more the look at her askance kind of nuts. She and some other chicky were on Oprah a while back talking about how we should use products that are all natural and good for us instead of the usual suspects, ok, I can get behind that. When they came to deodorant/antiperspirant the other chicky was saying that there are products out there that don't have aluminum as an ingredient and we should be using those cuz aluminum is a neurotoxin, which, yeah, better to not have that floating around in your body (I think aluminum compounds are used to stop the sweating, really, I think they use other things for the odor). Then Julia pipes up and says that she doesn't use deodorant/antiperspirant and never has because she just doesn't like it. To which Oprah replies that Julia always smells so nice when she's on the show. But how does she smell when she's filming? I mean have you seen Erin Brokovich or The Mexican? I'll bet she didn't smell nice during those shoots. I dunno maybe she just doesn't sweat? Who knows? Now if any of you out there reading this don't use deodorant yourselves, I don't mean to offend, but if I were to go even a day without, well, that just isn't pleasant for anybody.
By the way, I've tried two different types of deodorant that don't have aluminum in them and neither work.
