I Believe All Things Should Be Resolved after 22 Minutes. [Feb. 13th, 2005|03:52 am]
Sauce1977


There might be something wrong with me.

When I was younger, I went to see Clueless. I liked that movie.

Tonight, I watched Mean Girls. I liked that movie.

Lindsay Lohan's performance tended to work well. After all, guys, she's not even 20 years old . . . get her out of your head. When it was 1996, she was 10.

Medialand . . . stop taking barely-legal women and putting them in magazines as the newest hot-bodies. This is the reason why so many teenaged women have eating disorders. Fucking stop it.

These films did one thing that many other films forget to do . . . they tell a story.

Also, last night, I watched Open Water, aka "The Blair Fish Project."



I liked this film as well . . . however, it was depressing in a House of Sand and Fog way. They fucking died after all of that buildup . . . right as the boats were coming to get them. That really sucked.

I didn't appreciate the white-collar white couple interaction. That shit is weak. It is as if they wanted them to die, the writers, that is. Whether it was based on a true story or not, it doesn't matter. No matter how much I thought those two sucked . . . when they were into the sunset hours and still out there in the water, I felt for them. That would really turn into a nightmare. In fact, I caught myself freaking out, wondering what I'd do if my significant other's carcass was just eaten by sharks, and I was now all alone in the ocean . . . her decision might not have been far off from the decisions of most everyone.



At work, I frantically stocked a bunch of liquid detergent after work hours. The work, fortunately, was paid . . . believe me, I logged myself in for the extra hours. However, I did a really human thing, and as I was stocking the detergent, I knocked over one of the boxes, and the cap broke on a huge container. Liquid detergent with bleach spilled all over the plastic pallet. I didn't have enough paper towel to clean up the spill, so I tried mopping it up . . . the detergent mixed with the bleachy floor-wash water and created a frothy mix. I tried mopping up some more, but I started mopping detergent on the floor, and it left a high-gloss shine, which will probably turn into a non-shiny residue in the morning. I threw my hands up in the air, and I left it. I feel bad for leaving the mess, but I don't think they want to pay me for multiple hours of overtime, even though I was told by the DM that I'd be working about 48 hours a week. It's more like 35 hours a week. So, I finished my Saturday night computer tasks and went out the door, but not before I discovered that the manager left her cash register logged in on the 2nd register. I had to dive into the computer information and find the password list. I remembered that I needed to buy Heidi some Valentine's stuff, so I purchased some candles from the girl-type aisle. I liked how the sugar-cookie-scented candles smelled, and I was surprised that I could smell anything, considering that I smoke over a pack of Winston Lights a day. I rang up her gifts, and I put it on my debit card. Then, I counted down my manager's drawer, and I went back to tally up the final sales deposit for the day. Then, I left, well behind schedule.

Whenever I take some personality test . . . the type where it wants to 'spike' in one category to show your dominant personality . . . I usually score across each category on equal levels. One of my professors pulled this test on me in college, and I was the only one who 'flatlined' . . . he was pissed at me.

There's one good by-product of watching Mean Girls . . . if you like the film, then you'll end up feeling as happy as a little girl.

when my boyfriend and i watched open water, he told me, "if this ever happened to us, if we are ever trapped in the middle of the ocean and i am dead, i want you to let the sharks eat me so they won't get you. don't just float me off and waste me." incidentally i thought that the movie was HORRIBLE. i'm not even talking about subject matter/plot/etc., i just couldn't find one good thing about the whole movie once i had seen it.

I didn't want to watch it again . . .

I did, however, want to watch The Blair Witch Project again and again . . .

There's something way more entertaining about a bunch of dumb college-age-type kids going out into a forest to see if the spooky-evil-stuff is actually real . . .

However, I did like Open Water because it did suck me into the nightmare of being lost in the sea for multiple hours.

I don't even like water, and I hate swimming. That is a pretty good mark of Open Water, to get me to like it.

I think it's a-okay to enjoy a wide range of films.

Clueless is better than Duplex any day.

I like movies... probably too much...

By that I mean that I usually won't go see a movie unless I KNOW I'm really gonna like it (or at least that I have a great chance of really liking it...)

As a result, the last new movie I've seen was probably Once Upon a Time in Mexico... hence my bulk of icons lol

You really really should check out Collateral, then . . .

I know you will like it.

Mean Girls... one of my favorite movies. It's on my "buy" list for when my tax returns roll in.

I still find it amusing that she'd purposely fail math to get the guy's attention. That's so bizarre.

I found Clueless to be entertaining.

What retail chain do you work for these days? All of your adventures tend to remind me of my job LOL.

Unless I somehow don't work for them, I kind of want to keep the actual chain a secret.

That way, if any person from the company were to start looking for information, it would be hard to identify.

That's fair enough. I am just nosy sometimes. Plus it is just nice to read your retail stories, to know that I am not alone sometimes, lol.

And those sugar cookie candles do smell good...

but since this is a public entry, wouldn't Heidi be able to read what you got her?

I gave it to her last night.

I didn't want to wait. It's rare that I can afford anything from my own money for someone else.

After all, we're mostly a bunch of adult children, living on the teet of our elders.

That's true, we are really adult children in a way. And it is nice to be able to get her something with your own money, so that is understandable how you'd want to give it to her sooner. Good going :)

I feel as if coming back for Heidi has opened up a bright spot, and the dark spot has grown . . . Heidi's one of the main reasons why I wouldn't jump off any buildings.

However, Detroit has been a huge mistake.

You're story is far from over.

Let time be the judge of your decision.

I actually told my dad tonight that line from Fight Club where Durden tells . . . well, Durden . . . "Did it ever occur to you that God may not like you? In fact, he might really hate you?"

I'm not sure what I believe . . . although, I am not stupid enough to believe that for very long. If God really hated me, or all of us, for that matter . . . he'd have finished us clowns off long ago . . .

There still lingers a possibility that we are God's tools, and the direct PS2 controller that he had was broken when we were cheated by the devil into free-will without experience . . . the 'intuition,' 'ESP,' or that 'Sixth Sense,' as we all kind of refer in different terms . . . it could be God's little back-door emergency com-link to control us . . . that very well, quite possibly, the one who runs the show in this reality is most definitely evil, and he's trying to keep us all from running amok under the reality of constant dark command.

In other words, in this world, God very well may be dead.

I can't really believe that.

Too many times in my life have I been saved by what can only be deemed diving intervention.

I have as well . . .

I feel, however, that I have a very thin margin where the nasty surprises are close to tossing me over the edge.

Mean Girls is an awesome movie. Most people that have watched it think so, too. So no, there isn't anything wrong with you :-P

Yay!

I saw a preview for Party Monster on the disc, and I know about the real-life story behind the movie. That looked interesting, but I'll have to see what's written online about it before I check it out . . . I remember people saying that it was rather good.
