Fun, Games, Blood, Comments: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I made it through work tonight, which means I'm off until Sunday morning, and then I'm off until Tuesday. I have many days off next week. Life is good.

Star Wars was cool. Very violent - I'm glad they didn't hold back with the killings. I enjoyed it.

At the theater, people were having lightsaber fights in front of the screen prior to the movie. It was craziness, but really entertaining to watch.

Matt made a comment to the effect of "It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt."

I responded with "Then it's all fun and games and blood."

It was witty, damnit! You didn't think of it!

Matt and I are going to have an elaborate lightsaber fight. More on this later.

So I have no sports editor for the summer. That's not good. That couldn't even be construed as remotely good.

On top of that, I'm not ready for bikini season! This has NEVER happened to me, but apparently, not being able to dance for a year has caused some serious problems in the ab department, so I'm going to whip my ass into shape ASAP. I've never been unprepared for bikini season, and I'm sure as hell not going to start now.

I'm taking pilates in the fall, so if nothing else, I'll have a killer bod by then. Start getting jealous now, kids - you'll eventually want to be seen with me in public.

And while I'm addressing you, my loyal readers, why the hell did the commenting stop? Good grief, I have a site meter, so I know you're out there. Freakin' leave me a comment, you ungrateful bastards! I'm not just doing this for me. I'm doing this for my ego, too. OK, really, there's no point in having a blog if no one cares, so start caring. I need many, many comments!

And now, song of the day, going back to the era of Jim Croce: "Thursday" - kind of fitting because it is Thursday (to me it is, because I haven't gone to bed yet), and it's reminiscent of all those failed relationships we all have.

Well, it started out just like a dream
And like a dream
I knew that what we had
Would have to end
I was lookin' for a lifetime lover
And you were lookin' for a friend

Someone to be there after all your nighttime lovers
Had gone the way they came
Someone who knew the way
To help you play your daytime game
It's not the same

Well, I started out pretending
That I've come to mean enough to you
To make you want to change
Then I came to realize
That there was just too much of you you'd have to rearrange

And I couldn't bear to wait around
For all your nighttime lovers
To go the way they came
Then it came to hurt too much for me
To have to play your daytime game
No one's to blame

Well, it started out just like a dream
And like a dream
I knew that what we had
Would have to end

I was lookin' for a lifetime lover
And you were lookin' for a friend
I was lookin' for a lifetime lover
You were lookin' for a friend
I was lookin' for a lifetime lover
And you were lookin' for a friend
I was lookin' for a lifetime lover
You were lookin' for a friend

We should have a lightsabre battle. Matthew, myself, his sister, and our friend engaged in a mand, sabre-swapping battle in front of the theatre this past afternoon. It was nice, because Ashley and I were both wearing cloaks, and I braided Matthew's hair.

I fucking adore this new movie. You wanna go see it again with me? I really want to see it again.

ERICA said...

I want to go, too! We can have girls Star Wars movie night! Right after I get back from San Francisco.

Wendy ....
I'm commenting... you owe me.

Wendy said...

OK, once ERICA (all caps) is back from San Fran, we'll all go! Come back, ERICA! I like when Anakin says "Master" - it's like he's saying it to me!

My braid was awesome. You should have seen it. You also should have seen Manda kick my ass with her lightsaber. That was awesome too.

I can bring my lightsaber to work tomorrow... if Manda brings hers, you two can fight somewhere...
