Finding it silly and frivolous to spend $200 on a DVD player at this time, I resisted.

And by resisted, of course I mean instead spending $500 for this...

What can I say...I'm an impulse shopper.

But I reason this by:

A) I wanted a DVD player.

B) I resisted buying a new computer.

C) I'm a tool who likes video games, and...

D) People with PlayStations are cool.


So, Harry Potter...

Wow.

And everyone snickering right now can bite me.

This was one of the most well done movies I've ever seen.

Now, not for deep thematic elements, or a profound insight to the human condition, but just for the fact that it's a great all around film, and stayed exact to the book.

It's now replaced "The Pelican Brief" for me as the movie that stayed as close to exact to the book as possible.

I actually went to the second showing of the day, as that was the one that was being shown on the giant IMAX screen at the Muvico Pointe 21.

And you know what? Everything looks good on a 65 foot tall, 98 foot wide screen.


The cat's been acting odd lately, bristling about, meowing loudly, being overly-aggressive. This was bothering me just a bit, as I couldn't figure out what was wrong.

When I walked in on him attempting to anally violate one of my Pound Puppies, I realized that the reason was that he was in heat.

And though I can thoroughly empathize with his situation, I'm still making an appointment to get him fixed as soon as possible.


The entrance to my Gap has a counter in it, which makes a note of how many people walk in anf out of the store. This little machine produces what's called our conversion. It calculates the number of people who have come in against the number of transactions, and gives us the percentage. Now, it only counts people over 3 feet tall, so many times when the employees walk in and out, we'll duck, so the count isn't skewed.

Well...today when walking in, my manager and I were talking, and walking fairly briskly, so as we entered, we both ducked automatically, at the same time.

Just as we did that, a 20-something year old guy was walking out, saw us as we passed him, and ducked as well, looking very nervous.

Now that I'm reading this, it's not so funny, but believe me, I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time.


Me: I wish there was an actual theatre scene in Orlando.

Bobby: Well, we get some things.

*Pause*

Bobby: Like, what's coming to town with Mary Margaret in it?

Me: *blank stare* Um, her coffin?

Bobby: What? Oh...no, I meant Ann-Margaret.


I'm watching Mel Brooks' "History of the World: Part I", one of the best movies ever made...

"You look JUST like the piss boy!!"

"And you look like a PILE OF SHIT!"

Classic.

Be well...
