State of the Union

Holy bejesus that latest episode of NARUTO kicked ass.

I haven't taken a shower since Tuesday. Is that why my hair/scalp is itching?

It's amazing how many people go see movies they know nothing about. Case in point:

"What's SIN CITY?"
Well, it's based on a comic book...
"Ahh screw that. Hmm, how about KUNG FU HUSTLE?"
Well, it's a kung fu flick (duh). It has some crazy stuff, like THE MATRIX, but a lot better. And it's really funny. It's almost like a cartoon.
"What? It's a cartoon?!"
No no, it's like a cartoon. It's over the top.
"Oh I see. Alright, I'll take one ticket."
That'll be 6.75.
(He hands me his credit card.)
Can I see your ID?
(He places his driver's license upside down on the glass window.)
Uhh, can you turn it?
(He turns it right and slams it on the window.)
"Hah! That's my kung fu right there!"

Then there are people who can't get the movie titles right. It's BEAUTY SHOP, not BARBER SHOP. It's HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, not HITCH TO SPACE. And then...

"One senior for THE INTERCEPTOR please."

I didn't have the heart to correct her.
