Who the hell can tell these days?
the fuck asked you?
Relative to yesterday's meeting, I finished my list of Things Most Important to Me. Well, there was the official list for public consumption, and then there was the ha-ha list that I've yet to commit to paper or elsewhere (fleshlight, anyone?)
Anyway the Public List was very thought-provoking and made me realize the extent of how much I make-do in the current situation. Not to say that there are perfect situations, but surely there's room for improvement from the current one.
Damn you get weirder and weirded

Weirdness is a prerequisite of posting on SF.
Two slices of pizza. : )

Not sure if this is really making me all that happy, but to try to make Piob feel better about the # of posts in this thread, I did at least get to watch a lot of movies on my flights back and forth from China. I virtually never watch movies - neither my wife nor I are big cinephiles, we have practically zero interest in going to a theater independent of one another, and our movie tastes differ quite wildly, so even in the rare occasion one of us gets ginned up to see something the other is probably not interested. And we rarely sit still long enough to watch a movie at home. The result is that, until I happen on a flight with a good in-flight entertainment system, I essentially never watch movies. In fact, until a flight about 3 months ago, I probably hadn't seen a single movie made in the past 5 years. So it was nice to see a few films, including one or two that I had seen trailers for and thought "you know maybe I'd like to see that one."
Anyways, I watched, in more or less declining order of quality:
Harry Potter (last one, part 2, I had seen part 1 on that flight a few months ago)
Cowboys and Aliens
There were probably 1 or 2 others I'm not remembering. Overall, really "The Guard" was the clear standout. Harry Potter was fine, though I probably should have had a refresher on the earlier one first, and it would help if I had seen most of the movies in the series first. "The Debt" was promising and had some great moments, but overall left me feeling like it should have done more. Restless was very quirky and I liked its independent spirit. The rest were pretty much terrible, though I guess entertaining enough given I was trapped on a plane for 14 hours.
I thought about watching "Sucker Punch," atrocious as the trailer looked, but decided it'd probably be better to watch in a venue where I can masturbate.
In any event, this is what I learned from watching all these movies:
- By not watching movies often, I am not missing much.
- There are a lot of unknown people out there who can really act.
- I want to destroy Olivia Wilde with my pen0r.
That's amazing my girlfriend and I see so many movies together. If we aren't watching a series on Netflix we probably watch a movie a night.
I hardly ever watch movies either. I've noticed that whenever I tell people that, they act as if I'd just shot their dog. They're incredulous, and seem to feel that I've done them some kind of grievous wrong. It's very strange.
I get the same reaction when I tell people that I don't follow sports. I feel bad because people try to break the ice with that stuff. Especially coworkers, who I largely have nothing in common with. I always feel bad when a new boss or something tries to "bond" with me by bringing up a game or something. I just sort of stare blankly.
Yes, I have seen that happen on this very Internet forum!
i still <3 you.
i too watch a movie almost every night btw.
I don't care for sports but for that reason I make an effort to at least have a very superficial knowledge of local sports. So when someone says something about the great game last night I can nod in agreement and make the dude-bro fist pump with them and pretend I care.
