Is It Christmas Yet?
And so S and I took off to the mall to get into the spirit… to look at decorations (not that there is ever anything really new, but that doesn’t matter), to get inspirations for presents… wrapping… Advent calendar goodies… you name it. For some reason we’re both SO VERY READY for that whole Christmas nonsense already … we were almost sad that most Christmas Markets take yet another week until they open (although opening next week seems still rather early-ish, compared to past years).
Whatever… not that we bought anything yet but… getting into the mood was enough. It was a nice afternoon.
Afterwards we had a damn burger at Maredo. Waaaayyy too many calories! But it was sooo good. That dip you see is Chipotle. It was to die for!
Now back to skinny salad again for the next weeks…
Oh, and before I forget, we also saw a movie.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, starring Tom Cruise. Please allow me to give you the following advice: don’t spend time and money on this! It would be wasted. You’re welcome.
We had seen the first Jack Reacher movie a few years ago and it was… alright. The typical kind of movie that Tom Cruise seems to make over and over and over these days, but it was watchable.
This sequel however, was so dumb, I can’t belive that the writer of the screenplay got away with it (or should I blame the writer of the Jack Reacher novel book series?), and that someone like Tom Cruise agreed that this would be an acceptable movie to star in for him.
The story was in parts so incredibly stupid, that I got angry. I hate when I get angry at a movie.
Therefore, I’m not wasting any more time on reviewing this.
Just one more thing: what happens to Tom Cruise’s face? He looks horrible. Is he getting stuff done to it? Botox or anything else? It’s not that he’s gotten older. He is. But there’s something that just looks off!
Maybe the same that seems to happen to Ben Affleck’s face. His is a different kind of “off” but still off.
Awful. Please stop that, guys!
