Wilson... now that I think about it, he had more character development than 99% of characters created these days. Consider this scene for example. So subtle, you can barely tell he's alive, yet Hanks plays off the energy Wilson is creating and they forge a breathtakingly powerful moment of cinema history!

(only half kidding  ;D )

Though I have to say, watching the audio commentary for Castaway, and hearing about all the tricks and editing in post that they did... it completely ruined the movie for me.

I still tear up at the end though.

Do not EVER take Zinc on an empty stomach.  I took a 50mg zinc capsule bc I read a couple different places that it could actually help with an upset stomach.  Well, I wont go into much detail, but lets just say my body rejected it in every way possible for about an hour.  One of the worst experiences of my life.

It could be a destination if it has good food.  ::)

The best rest stops are, hands down, GOasis. Whatever the plural of GOasis is.

I think it's third declension Latin. Goasis (-is) nm

Go find some water. Careful, it's over there by the gasoline. None of the containers are marked, either.

Spectacular minced oath sir, although I now feel conflicted about whether I want to listen to Bloodhound Gang or Bo Burnham.

LOL. More like, you are now officially a catechumen.
Dear mortal peasant,

it would be very much appreciated if you would begin your responses to me with "Elder" or "Bless, Elder."

Thanks for understanding.

Ah, but I am an Archon!  Which I think is some sort of angel, since I've never given large quantities of money to the Greek Archdiocese, and since man is a little lower than the Angels, that makes me above you.

I'm off to Saint Anthony's Monastery in Arizona tomorrow.  Please say a prayer for me that my journey there and back is safe and that my time there is beneficial.  Thanks in advance!
