First I have to say that possibly one of the dumbest songs ever written is Bicycle Race by Queen. Seriously. I want to ride my bicycle. I want to ride my bike. I want to ride it where I like. See? Stupid.
Anyway... I've seen a few movies recently...
King Kong - Now, I have to say that I've never really been interested in the story of King Kong. Just not my thing. But two of my younger cousins wanted to go and it's a Peter Jackson film - so I took them. Well, I can safely say that I'm STILL not interested in the actual story. However, Peter Jackson is still a genius. The kids were bored about half way through, though. And I would probably never sit through it's 3 hours again.
Hostel - At first I was very scared of this movie because Quentin Tarantino's name is attached to it...but it's also directed by Eli Roth, whom directed Cabin Fever - which I love. So I thought, why not. Well, it was okay. Not great, not terrible. It was looooots of titties, asses, blood and vomitting. Nothing even remotely scary about it.
Wolf Creek - This isn't in theaters around here anymore, I don't believe. I love how the first week horror movies start out with a really strong audience...and then people actually see the movie and go back and tell their friends what they though and then it's out of theaters in a matter of like three weeks. Anyway, this is one of those movies. It's from Australia and that was about the highlight of it. The accents. :) And the lead guy was kinda cute. This movie was less scary than Hostel and that's saying something. I guess it's alright if you get bored, when it comes out on video, check it out. *shrugs*
So.... there was some drama this past weekend with some cousins of mine and myself. People saying they're gonna do something and backing out AGAIN. Anyway, they ended up modifying plans and we hung out. So one of the first things that's said when I get in the car is....
Tara: So, Sabrina, tell Shawna about your date.
Sabrina: I've got a date Sunday after Church.
Tara: And who's the guy?
Sabrina: Some guy I met on the internet.
Me: O_O Have you met before? Are you taking someone with you?
Sabrina: No, I've never met him before. And no I'm not taking anyone with me.
Tara: Do you know his last name?
Me: O_O Are you kidding me?
Yeah....so my tiny little 20 year old cousin (when I say tiny, I mean like tiny...she's a little bitty bit of nothing.) is going on this date with this guy whom she met off the internet and couldn't even be bothered to find out his last name. Brilliant, yes? That was Sunday. You know......... I haven't heard from her since then. Maybe I should call her.
Hmmm... what else.
Oh yes.... I started talking to an old friend of mine again. I've known him for just about ten years. We lose contact for like 2 or 3 years, sometimes longer, at a time but we always find each other again. It's the weirdest damn thing. The only problem I have is that he's TERRIBLE at communication. And I'm not talking just about all the sappy feeling crap.... I mean in general. I don't know if my conversation isn't stimulating enough for him or what. LOL So we dated on and off for a while... and it just never seemed to work. He's always lived in a different city, though he's always wanted to live in Cincinnati. And when this all started, I was pretty young and just not mentally capable of anything serious. That made me sound like I'm a tard, didn't it? LMAO Anyway, I know I've changed.... Though, I'm still so far from being ready for anything...other parts of my life are way too fucked up to even consider being in a relationship. But the way things keep happening, it just makes me wonder if there isn't something cosmic going on between he and I.
Who knows. Time will tell.....
I've spent so much time alone lately that I've had a lot of time to think and reflect and be lost in nostalgia. On several different occasions over the last two weeks, I've been on a walk around my "block". I'll get a smell or the air will blow on my face or something just right and I'll get pulled back into an earlier time - a time when I was happy. On at least two different occasions, this has happened and I've actually had to stop walking, and I double over, because the feeling is so overwhelming. I miss my past. I sometimes wish the person that I am now (the one that has the most confidence she's ever had) could go back in time and live it all again, further changing the person I am today and the path that my life has taken. Maybe I wouldn't be such a disappointment to myself, my mother and my grandmother then.
Anyway, enough seriousness... Have you seen any episodes of Family Guy lately? I freaking love that show. Family Guy and Two And A Half Men are the two FUNNIEST shows on television. If you haven't seen either.... WHY NOT???? LOL
Well, I'm off to fall into a pile of laundry never to be seen again.......
