Stop To Pretend, Stop Pretending

For some reason I've been buying DVD's like a motherfucker lately. I don't even know how to work DVD players yet in the past week I've bought 4. Finding Nemo (this movie makes me cry like no other), Garden State (I fucking love this movie. I've watched it 5 times since I bought it), Donnie Darko (The first time I saw this movie, it fucked with my head so bad all I could do was sit on my bed for 20 minutes. I forgot everything about it, so I'm excited to watch it again) and Moulin Rouge (because I love the soundtrack, so shut up about it already. Plus I'm declaring it as mine and Ariel's "movie". We should be looooooovas). I owe my mom $80 and J.P $30 and I'm wasting my money on DVDs. Wonderful. Keri bought The Boondock Saints and we just wateched that. I had seen it forever ago, but forgot it was a really good movie. I need to marry a man with an Irish brogue. I also decided I want to move to Boston after I graduate college. For what? I have no idea. But I'm going to do it goddamnit. NP. I probably won't because I can't see myself ever moving out of Chicago because I love it, but still. I'm sick of where I live though in Chicago. My town has always been know for being very racist and just 3 weeks ago, there was another hate crime here and on the news they showed it as happening about 1/2 a block from my house. I guess three white kids shot at a black kid with bb gun or something. The kid didn't die or wasn't seriously hurt either, but it's those stupid fucks who give my neighborhood a bad name. Not that I live in a bad neighbor hood by any means, if that makes any sense. I wouldn't think twice about walking home from somewhere at 2 am. But anyways, moving on. Now you all think I live in an awful neigborhood, but really, it isn't that bad. NP. I have work tomorrow at 9:30 which blows because I know I won't much sleep. My work has become so clique-y though, I feel like I'm in high school. I'm in the middle for some reason, so I hear everyone's story about why they don't like each other. The sad part is that there's only 6 of us who work there. I really like three of them though, the other 2 I could do without. One of them I don't like is the girl who asked me to be in her wedding. I at first said yes, but then backed out over the summer. I'm so glad I backed out. I mean for chrissakes, she's just my co-worker. I don't enjoy hanging out with her, and don't even talk to her while I'm away at school. She just has no other friends, thats why she asked me. I know it was a bitchy thing to do, to back out, but I don't regret it at all. So she ended up asking this other girl we work with, Jessica, to be in the wedding too. Jessica said yes, then backed out, then said she would be in it again. Now Jessica and Amanda don't even get along. Sorry, I'll move on. I just think it's fucked up to ask 3 of your co-workers to be your bridesmaids. To top it off, she wanted me to be her maid of honor. She also asked the 52 year old lady who works with us to be in the wedding. She said yes too, then backed out. Ok ok, now I'm really done. NP. When I first got the Strokes album Is This It? about 3 years ago, I listened to it everyday for about a year straight. I hadn't listened to it in forever and now I'm obsessed again. Yeah yeah I know a lot of people didn't like them, but I think that album is the best 28 minutes ever. Maybe not ever, but it's a fucking good album. Your grandsons won't ever understand. It snowed for about 24 hours straight here yesterday, and everyone was talking like it was the end of the world. My brother is waiting to hear school is cancelled and people are bitching and moaning on the news about all the snow piling up. You live in fucking CHICAGO. Everyone is acting like it's Georgia or something where they cancel school for 1/2 inch of snow. You'd think people would be used to it by now, but I guess not. I just saw something online that made me think of you Jenn. It said "Learn the bad habits of your zodiac sign." Being a Taurus it said that I like to be surrounded by my possesions so my life is cluttered. I guess that's kind of true. I thought for sure it was going to say about Gemini's "You talk about being a Gemini way too fucking much. Stop blaming everything on your Gemini-ness." And guess what! I was right! I swear to god it said exactly that. I'm not giving you the link to check. You just have to believe me. Sorry, it must be the Taurus in me that's making me act like this. I love you lady. I'm still waiting for my cds, so I'm hoping I'll get them tomorrow, and I'll give you a ring so you can tell me what to listen to first. And Bill, it's 1:16 am and I just remembered that I might have missed the OC if it was on. I had work til 7:30 then went to Best Buy. I'm never going to catch up. I'm a lost cause. It seems like I never see much tv at home, but while I'm at school I watch 60 hours of tv a week. I only have about a week left here at home. It seemed like it was going to drag on, but now it seems like it's flown. I'm excited to go back to school, I miss Emily like a mofo. Last note: I went to the eye doctor on Tuesday, and yet again my eyes have gotten worse. I am now a minus 6, whatever that means. I don't know how it equals out on the 20/20 scale, but I'm pretty fucking blind now. My aunt is a minus 11, if that's even possible, somone told me she would be legally blind, but she might be if you saw the glasses she has to wear when she doesn't have contacts. She is a doctor though, so she can't be blind. If the trend I have continues (going down .25 everytime I go to the doctor), I'll be blind by the time I'm 40. Awesome. Blind as a bat, bitches.

Your not the only one that likes Moulin Rouge. That movie owns!
Note on your worsening sight, you may be elgible for the laser surgery that can correct your eyesight and you could get rid of contacts/glasses. I myself am looking into it.

Cowe said...

Hey, that's my song too, foreveeeeerrrrr and eveeeeeeerrrrrr. Fuck yeah, I rock. My eyes go down .25 every time I get my eyes tested to, they were -4 diopters last time I had them tested. I want to get laser surgery before I go blind.

Mr. Magoo, you've officially been banned from the OC cool kids club. Missing 1 episode is understandable, 2 is okay if there was a death or something but 3????????? How can you sleep at night? Anyhow Katie, you went to -6.00, that's what my left eye was last year. Mine got better though and now both my eyes are -5.75. It's really good to know someone with eye site as horrid as mine. I used to think I was in a league of my own. Laser Surgery woot woot! I rented Donnie Darko the other week, it was a good movie but I didn't understand what everyone was confused about that watched it? As soon as I seen him sleepwalk I knew it was going Final Destination in a less murderous way. Anyhow piece out Magoo and don't run into any walls.

Ariel said...

Yay we have a movie...we should be looooooooovaaaaaas, and that's a fact! That made me laugh and I needed a laugh cause I got some bad news tonight. I might blog about it later if I feel like it. I'm glad to hear you had a good new year's. My dad said Nevada has like 19 feet of snow right now, I can't imagine he's right about that. He said something about cincinnatti getting tornadoes and the weather just going nuts everywhere. There's snow up here but that's to be expected. Angie saw Garden State and said it's one of the best movies she saw last year, I still haven't seen it though. Ok i'm going to trot off now, I miss you, bitch.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaariiiiiieeeeeeellllllllll!!!!! omg!

what part of chitown do you live in katie? i remember when i was living with kimberly, you could her gunshots every freaking night! and a girl like me from a small little po-dunk down in nuevo mehicko isn't used to that kinda thing. it was a little skeery and one night some shots went off real close to our apartment and we heard some lady scream at her kids to 'get in the house right now!!!' and i swear that next morning when i was out taking the bellameister for a walk, i saw blood on the corner sidewalk. eep! but i loved chicago SO much and can't wait to go back, even for a visit. i want to move back but i don't know if i see that happening. not for a long time anyway.

Garden State hasn't come out here yet. I'm dying to see it. Yes, I know far too long to wait for movies but it's the movie industry with their make-them-wait-cause-their-stupid-bastards-on-the-other-side-of-the-world theory. I'm like 'Hello, we can get them bootlegged fomr Japan for $10 before they are on at the movies.' Idiots.

Oh and Hello Katie.

Download "Inside My Love" by Minnie Riperton.
Do it NOW bitch!

That's a good song that Jenn told you to listen to. So ya, do it ya...

You haven't updated for a while. That's not why I'm posting though. Tahnks for the breaking news on Elektra. But I did see House Of Flying Daggers today and it was pretty sweet. If you like that shit it's pretty typical. Great fight scenes and colors. Love story.

Oh, everyone dies in the end.
