As the result of reading a fabulous Life/Standoff fanfic, I promptly watched the first three episodes of the latter (OMG I LOVE YOU
NIXON MATT), while trying to make the new episodes last. In sum, Standoff is my new favorite show.
In addition, BULL, WHY ARE YOU SO AMAZING, AND SAVE SMALL CHILDREN IN HOSTAGE SITUATIONS BY JUMPING ON THEM IN BATHTUBS? OH RIGHT, BECAUSE YOU ARE BULL. HOW SILLY OF ME.
I was watching Pearl Harbor last night (don't hate me, but it was on A&E and I adore all WWII stories...and I bitched all the way through it), BUT the parachute sex scene is now my favorite part, resulting from a conversation with my roommate. We decided that those were the same parachutes that would be sent for Easy Company to use and that poor Winters' parachute was the one that endured the sexy tiems. Poor Dick. So to remedy that fact, Winters and Nixon had sex on it. Frequently. And then Welsh ended up with the very same parachute sometime later (I know that makes no sense, but go with it) and is the exact same one he had in Normandy and eventually gave to Kitty for her wedding dress. Also, if Speirs was stationed in Pearl Harbor the Japanese planes would have stopped and turned around, surrendering, in turn ending WWII.
I went to see The Boy in the Striped Pajamas today (another WWII/concentration camp centered film), and was inappropriately struck by laughter when German utensils were shown (damn you Welsh and Winters collecting Hitler's best silverware). As a side note, the film was interesting and offered a different perspective, though no truly new ideas were presented within the film. You should still go see it though.
