*sigh* So many things that I want to post, but can't find the time before I forget about them. (Can't find the time = too lazy.) I've been trying to type up something about my trip, but every time I try, I bore myself too much to keep going. :P

I joined a gym. I haven't started going yet; the orientation is tomorrow. I can't say as I'm really excited about it, since I really don't want something else that's going to eat away at my already poorly-managed time, but I'm so sick of continuing to put on weight and feeling blah all the time. Without a gym, the only exercise I can do is walking, which isn't a really good option for me, since I have foot and knee issues, and I can't be out in strong sunlight for long periods of time. I know that going to the gym is not only going to improve my body, but also make me feel better emotionally, and probably help me use my time better, but I still can't get myself excited about it.

The good part is, I'll have a workout buddy. I'm not sure if I've posted about the new AET at my school other than my initial worries about her, but she turned out to be really cool. We have lots of things in common, but not so many that I feel like I'm in competition with her for my identity. Anyway, we'll be going to the gym together.

But still.... *clings to free time* ;__;

I went and saw The A-Team. I'd heard it was bad, and I already knew from seeing the previews that I wouldn't like it (because in order for me to like it, Murdock would have to be spot-on, and I could already tell he wasn't), but I had to go see it anyway. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it definitely wasn't good, either. So much of it was like.... Why is this happening? What does this scene have to do with the plot? Why are they trying to make Face the main character? Why did the van have to get destroyed? Why is Hannibal's hair dyed for only one scene? Why do I feel like the costume designer has never seen the actual show? Why in the name of God are Face and Murdock calling B.A. Bosco?! WHY WAS THERE NO MONEY SHOT OF A CAR FLIPPING OVER???? Not to mention, obvious CGI was painfully obvious. The script and plot should have been re-done entirely. The only time it really felt like The A-Team was when they broke Murdock out of the hospital with the movie set-up. That was a moment of genius. The poor guy who played Murdock tried, but they really should have gotten someone else for him and Face. B.A. was surprisingly good, but Liam Neeson was only barely passable as Hannibal. Mostly, the whole thing was just disappointing. (And the thought of the fic that people are going to write using nu-team characterizations makes me cringe, not that A-Team fic was that great to begin with.) It does make me want to marathon the original series again, though.

(All of this brings up the age-old heartbreaking question: Why was there never an A-Team/Knight Rider crossover? They were on the same network at the same time! It would have been the most epic epicness to ever epic.)
