Print Story miscalculation: bullitt

So Teh Wife was babysitting for somebody last night and I was home alone. I decided to watch a  movie she would probably not be interested in seeing. I chose Bullitt with Steve McQueen.

Drat: it seems she was actually interested in seeing it.

Sidebar: Steve McQueen is awesome.

Well, that just makes her even more awesome than she already was. Unfortunately, the DVD had something wrong with it and I could not watch the last scene. This is not good.

I think I will indeed, at some point, shave off the beard and keep a moustache. Maybe for an entire week. I am the next Tom Selleck. Tom Selleck > Steve McQueen in some ways, but both are awesome. However, Tom Selleck vs Harrison Ford? Tom Selleck had to pass up the role of Indiana Jones for his Magnum role. I would like to think that Tom Selleck would have been able to avert the disaster that was the last Indiana Jones film.

Man, I am so much stronger now than I was at that powerlifting meet 2 months ago.

I watched a lot of the coverage of weightlifting nationals this weekend. It was pretty awesome. Most divisions weren't particularly competitive. It was often a handful of people who made a few kilos more than the qualifying total and then a couple people who were a bit stronger and then an international class athlete following him/herself for all three attempts (in weightlifting, you get three attempts and the bar is loaded progressively - if nobody chooses a weight between your attempts, you follow yourself). A few of the international class athletes didn't bother coming, possibly because they had just come back from the Pan Am games two weeks ago and are prepping for Worlds in a couple months.

I tore a callus on my hand on Friday while catching a snatch. That was not pleasant. It interfered with training.

Lalo Schifrin soundtracks are awesome.

IIRC, the guy got away at the end, and the Police Captain sent word to round up the usual suspects.

Comparison wrong way round.

Trust me on this one. Steve McQueen is pretty all right, but Tom Selleck has a magic moustache. And sandwiches. By waterfalls.
