    Does anyone plan on seeing Promised Land? It's about Marcellus shale industry, and was filmed about 20 miles from here.

    I'm going to have to see it twice. Once for content and once to spot the extras who are folks that I know.

    I saw the piece on Sunday morning about it. Seems pretty political but I enjoy Matt Damon.

    I'm torn. It interests me but the situation is so depressing I can't watch.

    Uggh, my ex boyfriend (from eight years ago) has been using every excuse to email me lately, he is married with kiddos now. I'm too nice to ignore him, but seriously, its enough.

    I have a feeling when I come back from lunch I'll have at least 3 or 4 pages of Random Thoughts to go through. Need to run by the credit union too.

    You should respond to his advances just to freak him out!

    Why is he coming on to you? Is he unhappy that he lost you? Or is he just looking for some extra tomato sauce?

    I would guess if you are gone for an hour, it will be around 4 pages. That will give you plenty to comment on.

    It was filmed around Saltsburg, PA, named for the salt mines in the area. It's a cool little town, along the Conemaugh River.

    I guess he realizes now what a mistake he made. Did you ever enjoy a beer with him on a boat that didn't move, the smell of diesel in the air on a river at sunset?

    That would be more fun if we lived close by, I really don't have any interest in being a homewrecker, he made his choices long ago. I would have married him.

    I'm thinking he must be hitting a rough patch in his marriage, you always look at the last relationship you had as comparision. I had a few small ones between him and my current BF, so I dont think of him much (I know, cold, right)

    Today is the last day of 2012, which was supposed to be the last year. So we are working with borrowed time. Enjoy life!
