I still haven't seen the new Harry Potter yet. It's not like I'm dying to see it; I'll probably wait for it to show at the dollar theater. Just Friends* on the other hand...
I asked Solomon to lead jr high praise until January. I'm only getting Fridays and Sundays off, and I actually want to use those days to rest, not busy myself at church (as selfish as that may sound). And in an ironic note, I was asked to lead praise for CM today because Alex and Soo had their new baby this week (Christian -- gee I wonder if he'll get teased at church). It was... I dunno, interesting. Kinda fun.
For all you church people** that are reading this, I won't be seeing you guys for a while. I'll probably be there at the Christmas service, but that'll probably be it until the second week of January, which is when my overnight shifts end and I go back to the regular schedule. Happy holidays, hope you guys have a good retreat, have fun, and try not to miss me too much.
'Cause I know you guys won't. Bastards.
*It should be widely known (now) that I have a man-crush on Ryan Reynolds. Unlike most sarcastic smartass jerks, he doesn't get on my nerves. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
**Not like anyone else does. I don't have any friends outside of church. Although, I am making some progress with some work people. When you spend eight hours every night with someone, you're gonna bond.
hey lush have fun, it's the weekend

I went to Best Buy yesterday to buy an mp3 player* that was on sale, and saw a line forming for the X-Box 360 at the front of the store. That was 2pm.
I went back at midnight for my shift and the line had gotten twice as big. The funny thing was I saw a lot of Best Buy employees in the line.
Most people would make fun of them for being "losers" and "geeks." But not I, my friends, because I would have joined them if I had the money to get one.
*No, not an Ipod Nano. Too expensive.
I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon

Playing Soul Calibur 3 against Pablo is a frustrating experience, to say the least.
I just had a really nasty dream -- very violent and gory. But it had a happy ending. Kinda like THE PASSION OF THE CH... nevermind.
and something in me dies, the night that I betrayed my king

They don't run the fastest. They don't jump the highest. But they sure are getting the last laugh. Heavyweights. They never met a hot dog they didn't like... until now.
- What is it about: Jerry, an overweight pre-teen, is sent to a "fat farm" for the summer, lured by the promise of go-karts and swimming fun. When he arrives, however, he finds that the camp has been bought out by an exercise/fitness guru whose mental stability quickly deteriorates. Jerry and his friends--including a counselor who has been there for 18 years--finally make a stand. (100 min. Rated PG.)
- Why: It's better than what you'd expect. This family movie keeps away from standard Disney cliches. And it's worth watching just to see Ben Stiller in a very "familiar" role.
- When: Saturday, November 12, 2005 at 9:00pm.
- Where: Here, as always.
- Who: Some people seem to be confused about who's "invited" or "not invited" so let me make it clear to you numbskulls: ANYONE CAN COME. I don't personally hand out invitations to anyone. I just announce it on here. If you're reading this, YOU CAN COME. Clear? Crystal.

It wasn't that long ago when I was sitting in four job interviews with Best Buy, bumbling and twiddling and toe-curling into their yes-profit organization. Now I'm working as a part-timer with full-time hours, making decent money and giving it right back to them with purchases of DVDs, CDs, and games (oh my). They had me work two overnight shifts (midnight 'til 8 in the morning) this week. As our GM would say, "GOOD TIMES!" It wasn't that bad, actually. I had Thrice and "Feel Good Inc." and "Welcome to the Jungle" pumping up both nights.
On a side note, the guitar intro to "Welcome to the Jungle" is in my top 5 intros of all time. The other four are filled by Kelly Clarkson.
Watched KISS KISS, BANG BANG last night and loved it. Although I recommend everyone to just wait a few months since I'll screen it for Movie Night. One, it's free. Two, you don't have to deal with jackasses at the theater. Which reminds me, I'm this close to quitting movies at the theater. I enjoy them so much more in the comfort of my own home. Time to start up a plasma TV fund.
Unoriginal opening sentence wherein I express the belief that 2018 was a pretty good year for cinema, but not as great as 2017. Standard-iss...
