Oh No I didn't!


I just read all about these TOTAL losers, the types who camp out DAYS in advance in front of the Apple Store to get a new 3G Apple iPhone. They think as if life will become more meaningful after attaining this gadget which does roughly almost all the things they do anyway, except now it can be done while waiting for the bus? And even if that was the and all and be all couldn't they WAIT a little longer—you know live life and stuff—so they could stroll right in and get said gadget? The human psyche is an endless pit of perplexitude. I know that's not a real word, but it's my blog and I can do what I want.

This reminds me of my weekend: Pants, La Beautiful, The Gentle Giant, and myself plopped a blanket on the sidewalk in front of the Vista Theater over 1 and a half hours early to see a movie and get good seats. We were there to see The Dark Knight (2008). Was this film worth sitting outside on the sidewalk, waiting for hours, while eating out of a tub of ice cream?

Hells Yes.

Am I a loser?

No, I am a winner!

We got CENTER seats! The screen was NOT in perspective! And the film was pretty, pretty good. The Director/writer, Christopher Nolan got all Joseph Campbell on us with this one. Heath Ledger was so good despite him being dead and everything.

The film was long, yet I was fullfilled. Especially when I see a huge truck "trip", do a backflip, and a Jester, or Joker, or Clown come out of it.
