MY QUICK UPDATE (12/07/08)

Haven't written a post in a while. Mainly, because I've been 75% complete with the latter half of my "90210" review for 3 months and have yet to finish it. But, I feel the need to keep this damn thing up-to-date and the best way to do that is to continue the weekly "MY QUICK UPDATE" posts. Hopefully, this will spark me to finish that damned review (which would be good because I said I would not continue the series until I finished said review). I'll try and cover these last 3 months very succinctly.
So, here goes...

Halloween - Watched some horror movies with friends. No parties this year. Kind of regret that.
Thanksgiving - Went to Miami for the break. Spent the better part of the holiday hanging out at my friends' Starbucks drinking free drinks and receiving a large amount of free food that my family ate. On the way back to Gainesville, I got in a bit of a car accident ruining my transmission which now needs to be replaced.

Have not had a car for a week and have been forced to take the bus wherever I need to go. Luckily, I have some friends that are willing to give me rides to certain destinations.

I saw Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon at a free screening playing on campus. It was genuinely a good film. With some of Howard's latest, I was a gladly surprised.

I also got a chance to see David Fincher's newest film, based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, at a free advanced unadvertised screening put on by Paramount Pictures and FilmMetro. A GREAT film! Review to come (?).

Went to the of Montreal concert last Friday (12/5) with a friend. One of the best concerts I've been to! I've always heard of Montreal concerts to be very theatrical and they definitely lived up to the hype. I would recommend that, if you have the chance, you should go see one of their concerts. You wouldn't regret it.

Currently trying to convince my father to get me this car. Isn't taking too much convincing because, like me, my dad loves sports cars. He just wishes to see and test drive the car before buying. Now, if the seller would just e-mail me back...

Be careful with buying older sports cars. My friend got a late 80's Mitsubishi Eclipse and had tons of issues with it. I think he got to 2 grand that he sunk into it before he finally gave up and bought a mid-90s sedan. Hopefully it'll work out though because the car's pretty badass.
