Friday gayto_fabulous made my day by bringing me my Shirley Q. Liquor CD to me at work. I had burnt him a few CDs including: David Gray, "White Ladder," Nora Jones, "Come Away With Me," "The Hours" soundtrack, and one other one that isn't coming to my mind right now. I was on my break by 2:00, so I headed back home for a bit. Right before I was all set to go back to work, the body shop called and said that my car was all finished, and that we could come pick it up. I called work, told them I would be just a little late, and went and got my car. I've never been so happy to see her in my life. Went back to work, worked for a couple hours. Matt had called while I was on my break and asked if I wanted to go see "Darkness Falls." The guy that I was supposed to hang out with wasn't able to come back to Columbus on Friday, so I told him I would call him when I got off work. Around 8 I called Matt and Julie, as well as Ben, to see what was going on for the evening. Matt and jadeju1ia and I decided to try and make it to the 9:00 showing at Lennox. It took some convincing of Julie, on my part, to get her to come with. She was dead set on seeing "The Pianist." On the way to the theater, I called Matt and told him that it was looking highly unlikely that we would make it to the 9:00 showing. He was convinced we would be able to make it there in time. When he got to the theater, he called me, and informed me that the showing was sold out. I was expecting it. But for some reason he was 100% against going to the 10:00 showing. Tim's birthday party was also tonight, and he wanted to get there before everyone started to leave. So Julie and I finally got to the theater, and we found out that the 9:00 showing was in fact, not sold out. But the only seats that were in the showing were widely scattered. While we were waiting for Julie to get there, I saw Carrie and her boyfriend. I was so happy to see her, I haven't worked with her in such a long time. So.. yes.. we went back to the ticket counter and Matt left, because he simply had to get to the party, and Julie and I went to Cup O' Joe for some refreshing coffee beverages. While we were waiting for the movie, Julie kept complaining that her Orange Blossom frozen fruit beverage was hurting her throat. She couldn't deal anymore so she threw it out. "Darkness Falls" was a genuinely crappy horror movie. Just the kind that I like. Bad dialogue and all. The theater was full of straight high-school kids whose parents were outside waiting in the minivan for the show to end. Julie told me that the two kids next to her kept touching each other in inappropriate places. I was jealous. No one ever gets down and dirty when they sit beside me.
After the show, Julie left, and I decided to go see what was happening at the birthday party. I stopped and got gas, called Matt, and told him to wait for me at the party. He said he would, but he warned me that Jack was there. Not that it was really a big deal, but he thought he would let me know? I didn't care. They also informed be that Jack was wearing 029834029384 compacts of Mac makeup on his face. That made me giggle. I drove around campus for 15 minutes looking for a parking spot, and finally just parked behind Tim's apartment where you're not really supposed to park. I went inside, Nick was there, as well as a few other people who I knew. Jack was there, dancing with some ugly boy. His face was so shiny. It hurt my eyes just to look in his direction. I was there for about 6 minutes before I decided to leave. Matt, I guess, had left before I got there. The party was nothing but OSU freshmen. Tim and his roommates always advertise their parties as SAGA gatherings, so that they ensure maximum attendance. It didn't work in their favor this time. No one that really mattered was there. Freshmen, freshmen, fresmen, everywhere.
Axis was having their Flashback 4 CD giveaway, and Matt has said he was going to show up there at some point in the evening, so I went over there. Matt and his roommate were nowhere to be found. I danced around for a bit, osuchick came up and said hey. We danced for a bit, I got bored, decided to get my CD and leave. When I was in the parking lot warming up my car, Matt called me. He was over on my side of town, at some bar, somebody's house, something. He told me he was on his way to Axis. I told him I was on my way home.
When I got home, Matt called me again and I talked him through his way to Axis. He told me that he can get pre-sale Margaret Cho tickets, so he's gonna get the tickets for himself, Julie, and me! Yay! But, he did tell me to remind him the next day, seeing as he was slightly intoxicated and probably wouldn't remember the conversation that we were having. After I hung up with Matt, I pooed around online for a bit longer and then went to bed.
On Saturday I got up and decided to finally start working on some of my homework. I procrastinated so much this week. It's getting to be really, really bad. When I get home from work today I have to start on my essays for Comparative Studies, which I haven't even thought about starting. I called off from work for Saturday night, just because I had so much homework to do. Julie called me and asked if I wanted to go see "The Pianist" with her and scottiboi later on that night. I told her that was cool, and for her to call me when she heard from Scott. Not two seconds later, Scott called me and asked me the same question. He told me he was just going to come over when he got off work and we could leave from my house. Scott got off work, came over, we went and picked up Julie and we all headed over to Scott's house so that he could change. When we left Scott's we went to Cosi for some foodage. Left there, went to the Drexel and got our tickets for "The Pianist."
I can't see anymore sad movies for quite some time. I've watched way too many this week. "The Pianist" was very, very good, but it was also very hard to watch. I mean, obviously a Holocaust movie isn't going to be easy to watch, but some of the visuals in this movie were just too much. I liked it, I think everyone liked it. Scott was talking about how he would be a very hungry Concentration Camp member. I think it's good to laugh about some of the things that have happened in the past. Not to the point where you're making fun of them, but it just seems that everything that ever has happened in the world's past is always looked upon with such sad eyes.
I'm in too big of a hurry to get to work to go into deep detail on the subject. It's something that I think people know what I'm talking about, though.
Uggh.. off to work. Then it's home for massive essay writing.
