God damn it, I need to start balancing out how active I am on Twitter vs. how active I am on LJ so not posting for almost two weeks doesn't happen again. In my defense, a few days of inactivity were due to coming back from the family vacation in Colorado (we drove and 3G reception isn't so great on the highway), but the rest has just been due to life being Earth-shatteringly boring. HOWEVER, something amusing did happen to me yesterday! Taken from what I jotted down in my phone shortly after the fact: "While browsing the bins at a closing Blockbuster earlier, I observed a pair of thirtysomethings heading toward the register; the woman was wearing a "Team Edward" shirt and the man was holding all of the Twilight movies on DVD. I was far from the only customer staring at them in horrified sympathy, but I think the teenaged boy nearby who solemnly removed his hat as the couple passed said it better than all of us; Godspeed, you poor whipped bastard."
I fully intend to save this story for any time guys I know complain about their girlfriends as a reminder that it could always be much, MUCH worse.
And now, off to catch up on True Blood
by internets since I don't have the wicked awesome HBO hookup anymore.

P.S. - Was I the only one thoroughly unimpressed by Total Recall
? Among other things, it was just asking too much by expecting me to suspend my disbelief enough to buy that Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale would catfight that hard over Colin Farrell
P.P.S. - LJ at large has been remarkably quiet lately; either everyone else can't think of anything to say either or everyone moved off to the Teen Wolf
fandom while I wasn't looking. What gives? Is it just me?
P.P.P.S. (*facepalm*) - I would also like to state for the record that jean_iris
is a horrible filthy enabler for putting me on the world's worst Chris Evans kick. Again. I've watched some pretty awful movies for fangirling in my day, but he has me watching chick flicks, y'all. UNIRONICALLY.
