Saturday afternoon, at home, coffee and quiet.

Your 4 year old kid sped across the living room asking if you would take him to the loo. "Mommy's busy at the kitchen" says the 2 feet odd recently toilet-trained halfling.

So you'd do your part in this hunter-gatherer combo, followed the kid to the destination, lifted him up so his chubby tiny feet lightly stands on the rim for small business to transact.

Wifey walked past the toilet and she lovingly questioned if you've lost your marbles.

'What's the shizzle?' you'd inquisitively grunt.

"Next time you're not around, he's gonna do that by himself." Gatherer would say. "And fall over".

203. Incept This, Motherf#@ker!!!

Now if inception was truly possible, I'd go deep into my own dreams, delving into the furthest and darkest regions of my subconscious mind...and plant the idea that I was Chuck Norris.

Now how cool would that be? I'd karate chop my way to the top, making people my beeeyatches by just looking at them as I went about my way, throw a good flying kick or two, all the while roaring like freakin' lion...no one would be able to stop me, no one... ROARRRRRRR!!!!

By the way, catch the flick while you can...in a year that's been absolute shite for movies, this and Kick Ass are the ones that stand out. I just wished Chris Nolan would polish his action scenes, maybe take them up a notch or two...right now, they're still a dreary and confusing mess...he should pick a few pointers from Cameron, now that's a fella who could shoot action. Or if he wanted to go the realistic route, at least get some of the intensity of a Michael Mann shoot-out like in Heat or Miami Vice.

Makes you wonder how awesome Norris and his timeless mullet would've looked under the direction of Mann.

202. Viva Espana

Spain wins the ugliest World Cup in years, well-deserving though.

201. Espana

Paul the Psychic octopus has gone for a Spanish win. I'm going for them as well, having played the best football (but not the most exciting) in the tournament so far. It's been a good World Cup, not spectacular...but worthwhile to see a new team win it. Spain hasn't been great, but they deserve to win it for playing the best football for the last 2-3 years or so. And of course, the English flopped spectacularly as expected. Nothing puts a smile on my face more than seeing those muppets go home early.

I'm deeply rooting for an Argentinian victory next time round in Brazil.
