Story #1 from the weekend

I'm going to have to separate these, because there is so very much to tell. You can see some pics of the Bday weekend on my sister's blog.

First story is that once I got back from Provo I cleaned out the, no lie, 800 million emails in my box. I've starred the ones I need to reply to, I've sorted out my folders, I am now the email inbox dominatrix.

Remember the post I wrote last week about that LDS movie that I thought looked really stupid and had a ridiculous premise? Yesterday morning, during the Gmail domination, I found an email from the film's director.


Here is what it said.

Hello Miss Nemesis,

It was great to read your insights on my film. I look forward to reading what you have to say about the film once you've seen it. Good or bad.


So . . . that was unexpected. And I possibly may have stopped breathing a tiny bit. And then gone back to read what I did say about his movie. None of it was very nice, even though most of my ire was directed at Deseret Book for not knowing about the name Gemma. I wrote back to thank him for his email and said that once I've watched it and posted a review I'll be sure to let him know.

The lovely Desmama has offered to procure a copy so that we can get right on that.

Wow. I'd stop breathing for like a minute. That's a little creepy. I remember that post, and I of course said something derogatory towards it as well. How did he get your email address exactly? Is there a link on your blog?

Guess you have some movie watching and reviewing to do. Maybe I should get myself a copy......

Hi Kristen. I imagine he just does Google searches to see who's talking about his movie, or has alerts set up when people link to the movie's official site. I do have an email address in my profile, which forwards to my regular gmail account.

Bwahahahahaha! I am always afraid of people finding my blog! But I never really think about the famous people. Well, I have a good friend who knows John Travolta pretty well, so I've had delusions of JT getting into my blog. So far he hasn't commented, though.

maybe we should see if we can get a copy over here. Give you the english perspective on it

Oh. That's like the time I was talking about Signing Time! on my blog and got comments/email from Rachel, the boss of signing time. Freaked me right out. Somehow, I forget that I'm writing stuff On The Internet. Fortunately I was talking about how we luuurve her, not bashing her. :)

The worst (or best) part is that because of Google caching, our written tidbits are there forever.

Please don't spare him his feelings when you review it. It's going to be awful.

I finally checked out the movie's IMDB page. What on earth does that reviewer mean by "non-threatening LDS characters"?

I was looking forward to your review before, but I'm really looking forward to it now.

>>What on earth does that reviewer mean by "non-threatening LDS characters"?

You know--as opposed to the militant crazy type. The ones with that gleam in their eye that says "my Bishop won't let me speak in Sacrament meeting any more". Or something. ;)

Okay. So if you and DesMama actually watch it, please invite me. I will venture all the way to L**** to watch this movie with the two of you. Because that will be mad fun and giggles.

Jenny said... [reply]

I still can't believe this person actually wants to know what you think. It's just going to make him feel bad inside.

Happy Birthday!

Nemesis said... [reply]

Edgy, you are so invited.

Jimmy said... [reply]

I'm late. Happy Birthday. I'm also late with something else. Will take care of that :)

I won't bother you with my lame excuses. I'll just beg forgiveness, and come back on time, next time.

Nem, I've had 4 different authors find my book reviews and either leave a comment or email me about it. I think I stopped breathing each time, too. Oh! And I did a terrible review of a small band I saw, and one of the band members found what I wrote and commented. I felt kinda bad, but they did suck.
