Recipe For Awesome

Last Sunday I was puttering around the house; too cold to go out for a run so I just was dinking around with the things I like to do because I'm a horrible Virgo.

I clean and organize. I do laundry. I fold the towels into perfect rectangles that all face the same way in the linen closet. All my towels and sheets are the same colors. White. Off-white. Except for the new steel blue sheets I got for Christmas, nothing messes with the sheer perfection of my closets. If you don't know enough about me already from reading this blog, know this:

I get excited about seeing perfectly organized closets the way that most men get excited by looking at naked ladies. Hot naked ladies holding a six pack of beer in one hand and a pizza in the other.

I organize my cd collection according to genre, then alphabetical order by artist. I dust the leaves on my bonsai plant. I make sure that the Campbell's tomato soup cans are stacked together labels facing out, not mixed with the cream of mushroom because I know the earth will fall off its axis if that travesty happens.

So as I sat on the couch Sunday afternoon folding towels, I turned on the TV, knowing that there are usually old movies on TV on Sundays. I was right. And that movie was Point Break.

I love Point Break! How can you not love this has everything.

Add a heaping helping of the dorky hotness of Keanu Reeves and mix with a dollop of smooth sexy Patrick Swayze.
Sprinkle on a dash of crazy Gary Busey (man, he is bonkers!)

Then add all the other stuff that makes it great: Bank robberies, FBI intrigue, extreme sports like surfing and sky diving, romance, and great Zen Buddhist philosphy like: "Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will make your worst fears come true."

Fo' sho'...

Listen to the music they paired with that!!! And the logo treatment! Bwah!

Have you seen "Hot Fuzz?" They make a hilarious reference to "Point Break."
