Zoo and I watched Taken, with Liam Neeson this weekend, and all I have to say is, dude, I’d like the man on my side. It was so awesome watching his one man army routine, his focus only on finding his daughter. I’d like to think that kind of pure adreneline is possible – in real life and character life – when something big is at stake. I’ve read that you don’t know what you’re capable of until you’re pushed and it always bothers me when I read a review of anything that says, that wouldn’t / couldn’t happen in real life.
I wrote about this a while back for RTB and I still believe in what I wrote – you don’t know how you’re going to react in any situation until you are actually in that situation. And God willing, most of us will not be involved in shoot-outs that require rescuing from a Navy SEAL. Disappointing on many levels, I know.
Of course, then I ruined my viewing experience by watching Daisy of Love, something I swore I wouldn’t do. And then, once I started watching, it was trainwreck, can’t look away, city. Because the men are dropping out faster than I can blink – they are choosing to leave. No one wants to win Daisy as their prize, which bodes well for the men and their intelligence.
But Burn Notice starts again soon! Love that show. Rescue Me? Not so much anymore.
Okay, well, book due Monday. Sydney short story due Monday. Jake galleys due next week (that’s the FINAL stage before it becomes the real book!) So yeah, probably should be like, working. Coffee’s on – it’s going to be a long couple of days…pray for me.
