Report from wednesday night movie night

On weds Emiline and I had our movie night and it was fantastic!

We saw two very good movies that everyone should go and see.

The first was a movie that I have wanted to see since it came out in 2004 entitled "Wasabi Tuna" I am pretty sure it got released because of Anna Nicoles death.

However, it was a super fun, super silly look at life in West Hollywood when one group of friends decide to dress up as gangters for halloween and begin to have strange encounter after strange encounter. Full of larfs and silliness.

The other movie was a very serious drama entitled "The Dead Girl". A film about how the death of one girl affects 5 different lives in very different ways. It was a simple and straight forward drama, but it had so much more going on. It reminded me very much of "I Heart Huckabees" and "Little Miss Sunshine" in that it was doing something very special and doing it very well.

We also ate too much.

Find a flask, we're playing fast and loose

Monday was mine and Monster Squads three month anniversary.
I still think he is fantastic.
In fact I think he is even more fantastic than before.

A letter of concern and advice

Dear almost cute guy at the gym

I could not help but over hear your comments to your friend today about how you are finding it hard to meet someone to date.

Well let me tell you, there is a very good reason for this.

You dress like a model for Arnold Palmers line of clothes in the Sears Catalogue.

No really, you do.

You are attractive enough, you have a nice body (not that I was paying that much attention to you every time you undress anywhere near me), you seem to have a decent career.

But your clothes kind of reflect your as exciting as organic oatmeal personality.

So, not only do you dress poorly (or like someone only my Grandmother would find attractive), your clothes kind of reflect on your personality (and they reflect in what I must say is a fairly true to life kind of way).

Here is what I suggest. Go shopping anywhere besides Sears. Go to the gap, Club Monaco, Bluenotes, even tip top tailors, but stay away from Sears. And if you are ordering your Arnold Palmeresque clothes from the Sears catalogue - dude, honestly. Turn the page to somewhere else. I am sure that catalogue has a few more exciting items that are not entirely acrylic based fabrics.

Please, do this not for me, but for yourself. Only older ladies (And I mean real old) are gonna find your fashion sense attractive.

I hope I have helped

The travelling librarian

Listen up fuck wads, I did not come to this branch to work extra hours just to make you life hell! OKAY?

I am only doing what I think is best for the situation since rules and formats are not standard across the system. I have to use my judgement and make the best decision.

For example lady who wants to print, I am very sorry that you are used to things being one way, but while I am in charge they may be another. So if you are used to printing and then paying, well, tough. I prefer paying and then printing - that way the library does not get ripped off. So whaaa if you think I am being unfair just because you are not used to my style. And yes obviously I am doing this because you are of an ethnic descent and I am entireley racist.

And dude yesterday who desperatley wanted to print something and then held me up for 10 minutes after we closed and could not understand why I was telling you to leave. Well we have closing times for a reason. I do not get paid after the library closes, you were wasting MY time. I wonder how you would feel if I came to where you worked and were rude, aggressive and refused to leave. So why do you get upset when I am rude and aggresive right back? Do you really think the library is going to be on your side?

Do you?

And so for all of you patrons who think that I do the things I do specifically to get at you, that it is my life pleasure to annoy you. GO FUCK YOURSELVES.

I could care less about you. Why are you all so self centered? I was fine before you walked into my library and into my life. Perhaps you need to understand that my job does not extend as far as you want it to.

Why do you make my life hell by being complete dumbasses?

Oh it's such a perfect day

Yesterday with Monster Squad was a truly fine day.

We did not quarrell or fight. We in fact had civilized conversation all of the day. We got up, got dressed, made out, and were on our way.
We got to Guelph right on time, met my friends, had breakfast, walked around, bought some stuff, ran into some old friends, ran into an old enemy type person.

We then made it to the University went into the print sale, bought some art work, looked at teh art work, and walked around the campus a little it and then started our way back to Toronto.

It was still early so we went to Square One (just cause I had never been there) and we walked around looking at china patterns (discussing which ones we would get wehn we married), and we looked at clothes, and we held hands which got us some funny looks, and then I bought him a peanut butter cup from Godiva and we ate bites of it and then kissed.

He then drove me to Kipling and we parted ways.

Before I got him he called and left a romantic message.

And I'm in love.

Hanging in the sky, next too each other but apart

Tonight and tomorrow are a landmark in the relationship with Monster Squad.

We are having our first road trip together.

Two gay men and a dog hitting the road in the one guy's Mom's car with the dog.

I have to admit that I am only a little bit nervous.

I think it is a big testament of relationship to see if it can survive trips. The first trip can be very telling as you see how you function in close quarters and together for an extended period of time.

I am looking forward to seeing what happens.

So far he always surprises me in a very good way.

Tomorrow - picture it.

Guelph - breakfast, college royal print sale, hanging out.

I will update on how it goes.

Bringing sexy back?

Why is it that we have the term MILF?

But I have never heard anyone use the term DILF?

I find this a bit suspicious that our society thinks that some Mom's are hot but not some Dad's? Or is it that if someone is a good Dad all of a sudden they lose a certain maculine quality?

Or is it that some Dad's are just big jerks?

Either way, I think that the term DILF should get used a lot more.

As I chew it's got nothing to with you

I am over extending myself.

In an effort to prove myself here at work I have now bitten off more than I can chew.

Not good.

I am tired, cranky, and I need some time to myself.

For this month I have 2 days off.

On Sunday I was the acting Branch Head for Lillian Smith. That was one of the most stressful experiences of my life. It was horrible. If anything had gone wrong I had to deal with it and deal with all the repercussions. Nothing went wrong, but the fear of something going wrong made it a very hard and long four hours of work.

I have got to stop doing this.

I need to take more time for myself, this stress is now reflecting itself in my health.

I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar. I am far too young to have all these things.

This is not good.

I think I would rather be a muppet.

That is my career move - gonna be a muppet.

Or go home and have BIG BIG WINE. But my Dr tells me I have to have less of that. Not fair.

And another thing about stupid people . . .

This continues on from my last post.

Why the fuck are there no original programs on TV?

And when I say original I don't really mean original concept. I am fully aware that there are only 7 plot lines that exist.

I am more concerned with the fact that I see these shows that have so much potential but air almost the same episode but have a slight variation on a theme.

Honestly all these shows really do is put the characters in different clothes and change the disease from Malayria to Chicken Pox.

Or they change the characters hair and the crime from gun play to murder with a knife.

I find these shows insulting and scary.

I find them insulting on the level that you need no real brain action to watch them. They pander to you, they are harlequins on TV. (just so you know Harlequins actually have a set formula that they send out to their writers. It tells you on page 23 this must happen and it also informs you of the words that are acceptable euphimisms for sex organs and which ones are not) And I can not stand that each week it is the same damn episode slightly different.

The thing that scares me is that it takes no effort to watch these things. None. It is the same thing in the same spot almost every single time. And when they do veer off from the regular formula it seems that they get negative viewer response.

I really don't want to live in a world where this happens.

And the thing that really annoys me is that the majority rules with TV, which means the majority of people actually enjoy this type of programming and watch it on a regular basis.

Sometimes I wish I were stupid so I could have all the fun it seems that other people are having.

A poor man's version of themself

I am sick to death of Paris Hilton, Madonna, Nicole Richey, Brittney Spears, etc etc etc.
None of these people are interesting beyond a shallow level.
Not one little bit.
Has any of them cured cancer? Saved the world? Stop the hydrogen bomb? Ok so Madonna adopted an african child but how sincere is she about that?
This drives me crazy.
I am so tired of seeing the same headlines every day on the subway.

Oooh melt down this, oh shaved head that, oooh waxed pubes there.

I don't understand why we as a society care.
It is not news, it is not news worthy.
All it is is recycled crap.
Have we not heard this a million times before?
With so many other stars, icons and celebrities?

Why does it seem taht so many people are taken in by the same headline with a different name attached to it.
It is so lame.
And it angers me to the point that I want to smack everyone.

Couldn't find the right word
