Hi folks! I'm back from exams which suuuuuuuuuuck and finally have some time to get back to what I like to do best. Unfortunately, since I don't have the mobility to get back to what I like to do best (it's hockey), I'm going to have to settle for second best. That's right, it's time to share another movie with your friend Jeremy, and this time we're going seasonal :D
Since I can't afford to get back to Cape Breton for Christmas this year, I'm going to bring in the season with Roomie until he goes off for family whatnot. Lacy's here tonight too, and them arguing about Christmas movies is why we're now sitting here with a crowd-voted-up movie in hand. Lacy would like you all to know that it's one of the ones she wanted and that Roomie lost and is a loser. Normally I'd tell her to do her own dirty work but she brought egg nog so she wins :D
I asked around on the RPGnet forums and the votes for Christmas movie went to Die Hard, which there was a really big argument about here. Roomie says it isn't even a Christmas movie, Lacy disagrees, and the war goes on. Too bad though, because as you know I'm on board with what you guys say and you guys said Die Hard so Die Hard it is.
What do I know about Die Hard?
• It doens't SOUND like a Christmas movie...
• No seriously if this is actually a Christmas movie I don't even know what my brain's gonna do
Anyway, we are all be-noggéd, so it's time to do that thing I like to do and WATCHING A MOVIE TIME IS NOW!!! :D
20th Centruy Fox fanfare! Reminds me of Star Wars :D

So Forehead is Mr. McLean then. And they are... estranged? He doesn't travel for work, he's a cop. Or is that a lie?

I'm basically completely entertained by how hard Hans is fucking with the police
"Who cares?" :D
