I was privy to a conversation yesterday between my bf(boyfriend) and his bf(best friend) about how they really didn't like the last Bond movie. And the first thought that came into my mind was... 'slit his throat'...and then my second thought was...'they don't get it.'
I really think, if you didn't grow up reading Ian Fleming, then you don't know Bond. And those people won't care for these movies, since they're not the fluff of yesteryear.
So...watch this with that in mind. And if you don't get a tingle of 'oh YEAH!' from this... watch your throat.

Do you ever find yourself buying things that are the same as other things, just with different labels, and the label made the difference?
Like..I bought 'organic fruity bears' at whole foods. They would appear to be healthy based on the title, yes? Organic = good. Fruit = good. Bears = awesome.
BUT, in reality, these are sugar coated gel pectin candy, and are no better than something you'd get in a bright shiny package at a candy store. But I bought them due to the pretty vegan wholesome advertising label.
AND - I feel no guilt in eating one. It's an Organic Fruity Bear! It's like I biked to work and recycled everything and wear vegan shoes. Organic Fruity Bears!
I think that's all advertising is...making us feel better about ourselves through mass trickery. There's no big moral here, really...I just wanted to admit that I understand I'm being tricked. I'm on to you people. And I will point at you menacingly as I eat my healthy and delicious organic fruity bears. Yum!

I just realized - I don't like MIXED flavors. I'm not a mixer.
Take gummy bears. I feel deep down that you should eat only one color at a time. Put 6 red ones in your mouth - YUM. But put a red and green in there? CACOPHONY!!! TRAITOROUS!!! BLASPHEMOUS!!!!
I feel the same about citrus candy - like those ones that are shaped like oranges and grapefruit slices. Oranges go with Oranges. Grapefruit goes with Grapefruit. Oranges do NOT go with Grapefruit and we will NOT have that type of fraternization in THIS SCHOOL.
I am a flavor racist. NO Orange will drink out of the same water-fountain as MY grapefruit!
Plus, I really don't like gravy getting all over everything at Thanksgiving. But thats a whole different topic.
