Ok, here is my rant for today. I’m just home from watching Hero and what a great movie. If you like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, you’ll love this one. The cinematography was flawless and the plot kept twisting back and forth. You didn’t really know how it was gonna end until it did.
Anyway, about a third of the way thru the movie, these two biddies come in and sit down two seats over from me. They proceed to have a conversation all the way thru the movie. Not wanting to be disrespectful, I finally got up and moved. You’d think that would have been a signal right? NOOOOOOO They got louder! Another 10mins go by and I give a polite but unmistakable “ssssh!”. Did that work? NOOOOOO. So finally, during a crescendo of their carcophony, I stood up and said, “Would you two mind shutting up so the rest of us can HEAR the movie?” I shit you not, people started clapping. I guess I wasn’t the only one being annoyed. The pathetic part is the theatre wasn’t even that full. Its Wednesday at the 4:30pm showing.
The only thing worse than a cellphone ringing during a movie is chatty cathy and sister sally gabbing. What happened to being respectful of others? If you wanna have good conversation, go to a coffee house and bleat till your lips fall off. Don’t do it in the middle of a movie. Ok, I feel better now.
OY! I’m just home from the fair and I’m exhausted. It has been a LONG weekend. That said its been fun. I typically enjoy Up Your Alley fair more because its much smaller and people seem to interact alot more. However, this year I met quite a few people from all over and a good time was had by all. The bf is still there as he had to work a booth. (sucker!) So I’m off to nap and replenish some of my lost energies. Pictures forthcoming this week.
Morning all… Its the first day of my 9 day vacation and I must say I’m thrilled to be off. Work has become a real drag lately. I just don’t seem to have the tolerance lately that I normally have. So I think this 9 days will go a long way to helping me purge all the negative energy from my system. Not too much planned. Folsom St Fair is this weekend and next weekend is the Castro St Fair so I have plenty to keep me busy. It also gives me more time to focus on my workouts. I’ve realy made some strides this year and I’m hoping to reach my goals by year end.
No, I haven’t won the lotto yet but, I keep trying. (G) A few people emailed me instead of posting on my last blog. Who knew winning the lotto was such a sensative subject. Oh well.
I seem to be rambling this morning….*looking for my focus in the background.* Oh well, can’t seem to find it so I guess you’ll just have to settle for my ramblings today. OH! and speaking of rambling, have you seen Dubbya’s latest speech? Talk about a moron, sheeez! He can’t ge thru a single speech w/o miss speaking or giving people the image as America the Ignunt! As bugs bunny always says…What a maroon!
Ya know, my partner and I joke around a lot about what we’d do if we won the lotto. Today, I was thinking what would I really do if I won? The obvious, I’d pay off all my debt, my partners, and most of my closets friends. I’d buy a house or two in key places in the US that I like to visit. Then what? The next obvious…I’d give loads away to charity. (Notice the order that charity comes in) Its my blog so gotta be honest right? The more I thought about it, I seem to come up w/more things I wouldn’t do.
I wouldn’t buy a mansion or a house that would require more than 2 people to clean it. On that same note, I wouldn’t buy a house so big that I’d have to isolate myself from my neighbors. I wouldn’t buy more than 2 cars. I mean, how many cars does one really need? I’d probably settle on a hybrid truck and a nice sports car.
I wouldn’t try to go to every who’s who event in town. I’m just not that type of person. I’m very outgoing, spontaneous, and definitely know how to work a room. That said, I do it for pure interaction not so I can be seen.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is I wouldn’t change my life so much that I no longer connected with the world around me. Our interaction w/others is what teaches us and keeps us human. Call me silly, but thats what I’d do….
