I really like Tom Hanks, and I think he did a decent job, but he is not at all what I was picturing when I read Da Vinci code, and now every time I read a Robert Langdon book I picture Tom Hanks with a serious lack of sideburns.
I want to be better at a lot of things; guitar, photography, making an honest living in ways that don't fill me with the desire to splatter my brains across a previously undecorated cubicle. But i have spent more time trying, and failing to learn to draw than anything else.
The entire Harry Potter series is superb! Changed my life! Other candidates were The Historian, The Robert Langdon (Da Vinci Code etc)series, and A Christmas Carol
DAY 24: A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU WISH YOU COULD CHANGE
So, I've had this Cavalier for years. It's a great car, runs great, all that. I've also been trying to sell it for years unsuccessfully. All I really want is something bigger that suits my needs, and something that is more my style. An SUV, a Van, pretty much any pre 80's volkswagen. Please buy my cavy.
I'm pretty sure this was almost exactly a year ago. (On march 29 '11)
This is Gilligan. He is like family to me. Sometimes people ask "Do you still have that sweet little volkswagen?" which I always think is a silly question. I would NEVER sell him.
How about the Whole family? Actually, we're short one and a half babies.
One of my biggest fears is being a wage slave/office drone/nameless cog/ etc etc. It's actually a phobia. I have panic attacks in job interviews, the room feels like it's changing proportions and rotating. It's a problem.
and laugh...and laugh and laugh. The longer you look, the funnier it gets.
DAY 30: A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU MISS
The two things I regret parting with more than anything else; My Pirates of The Caribbean themed 68 VW beetle "The Black Pearl". The day I bought it it was yellow and it ran. 45 minutes later it was half charred, and and the engine was seized. I rebuilt the engine from instructions in a book, redid the interior, repainted,wood paneled, and fully customized it (hand carved shift knob, animated cd display with scenes from the ride, Film logo car emblem, and other film and ride memorabilia throughout. Sadly I had to part with it. #2 my sweet little honda scooter which I also repainted, hand painted the pixar birds on, tuned up, and loved to pieces, but money was tight and it still needed more...I should have sold my kidney.
