Two Days Until Casino Royale

SO excited. I have had a crush on Daniel Craig for approximately ten years. Ten years ago I was in college and made my friends watch a PBS mystery with me because I’d seen the first half the week before, and naturally I wanted my friends to see what my future boyfriend looked like. Of course, I do not actually want to meet him, seeing as how he’s An Actor, and a good one, which means he probably takes his “craft” “seriously,” and that would just annoy me lots. But he’s pretty to look at. So when I heard he was going to be the new James Bond, I was sad that now many American women would know who he was (so when we all start talking about men we find attractive, and I say “Daniel Craig,” now they’d know who I meant instead of giving me “Who?” which in the past always confirmed for me that I had no competition on this side of the ocean) (other than rr, of course). But I was happy that I’d get to see him on the big screen, which I had not done since I saw “Tomb Raider” in the theater, and let me just say, it was the only reason I saw it in the theater, but as cheesy as that movie is, I still liked it. And not just because of the scene where Daniel Craig is half naked.

Of course, rr and I like James Bond movies anyway. RR could have done better on her finals her last semester in college if she and her roommate had not spent their study time watching 15 Days of James Bond on TBS, developing their theory on predicting which Bond girls would die and which would live. We have a little bit of trouble with the sexist aspect of it, but hey, it’s fiction. We can watch romantic comedies without yelling “please, that would never happen,” at the screen, and likewise we are willing to watch James be Bond without feeling compelled to throw anything at him and call him names.

Anyway, rr and I have bought our tickets already. DANIEL CRAIG, BABY! We are psyched!

Ha Ha! I haven't seen y'all this excited since you took your first (burning) bite of a State Fair corny dog.

I had no idea about the enthusiasm of the movie, but I'm very excited for you! We'll probably go see it next weekend. I like me some Bond.

Woo hoo! Today is the day, baby! I am *so* excited. I've already listen to the James Bond theme song several times today.

I meant to say, "I've already listened..." Maybe I shouldn't try to type when I'm so excited about something.
