A to Z Challenge post - I is for inaniloquent and Insomnia

I think we all know some people that are inaniloquent. That means that they tend to speak inanely; are loquacious or garrulous. In other words (ha!), they chatter on and on, tirelessly, about purposeless and pointless stuff, often to the point of annoyance. I think that this term could also possibly be used in reference to certain reality programs, like Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Anywhooser, there is your awesome insulting-word-to-call-your-workmate of the day. Just don’t blame me if you get beat up in the parking lot. You never know who might be reading this blog!

Today’s movie choice is Insomnia, a real favorite of mine. This 2002 film stars Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Martin Donovan, and Hillary Swank. Two LA cops, facing some professional issues, are sent to a small town in Alaska to investigate the murder of a teenage girl. While there, Dormer (Pacino) manages to accidentally shoot and kill his partner (Donovan) while trying to apprehend a suspect. Instead of admitting his guilt, he unexpectedly manages to secure an alibi, but this only magnifies his feelings of guilt. There is also the problem of a local detective (Swank) that is conducting her own personal investigation into this partner’s death. Oh, and there is also the blackmail and framing of an innocent bystander being orchestrated by the man they were chasing. Will Dormer be able to hold it together? Or will his insomnia caused by the incessant midnight sun help to do him in?
No nominations or awards for this film, but I still highly recommend it.

Well, that’s it for today! TTFN.
PS - is it just me, or does the font keep changing? It's like this blog has a mind of its own...
