01:46 am - All B-movies and no sleep makes Colin... sleepy...
Tired. Going to bed soon.

Party on Saturday night was fun. Tons 'o' boozahol of which I did not partake (surprise, surprise), but that always makes for an entertaining evening. "Watched" Saturday Night Frights. They were playing C.H.U.D. Also watched (and ridiculed) Blade. No clothes were shed, but Becki did exhibit her new leather corset for us. A good time was had by all most. Got home at 3:00 AM or so. Went to bed at 5:00.

Got up around 11 and had lunch at fair in Stoughton before heading out to paint laundry room at Mom and Dad's new house.. Am off work, so will probably be painting Monday as well. Watched fireworks at fair in evening. Not a big fan of fireworks, but was impressed. Was hearing from many people last year that Stoughton's display is always shorter but usually cooler than Rhythm and Booms. Have not observed R&B since just happening to notice it during the car ride home from Jurassic Park in 1993, but find this comparison difficult to believe.

Unsure as to why none of these sentences starts with the word "I."

Was counselled my Mom's friend Marilyn to watch Ghost Ship tonight. Thought it would be CGI-ridden update of Death Ship, but I was wrong. Probably inspired to some degree by Death Ship, but story (such as it is) is much better. Cruise ship disappears and shows up forty years later. Salvage crew investigates hilarityensues. Pleased to have made it through the movie in one sitting (unlike Death Ship which bored me nearly to tears). Better than the average movie of this type, but disorienting because director Steve Beck feels the need to refocus the camera on every third syllable of expositional dialogue. It's annoying. Otherwise, 's alright. Opinion of crappy movie may be somewhat inflated by the fact that I got to see it for free. Would love to see sequel in which this dialogue exchange occurs:
Ferriman: You wanted to see me, boss?
Upper Management: Yes. Due to your unsatisfactory performance in the last movie, I've decided to demote you. You're new job is pee-on, second class.
Ferriman: Uh, don't you mean peon? With one E and no hyphen?
Upper Management: No.
I'm sorry, that's not even funny if you've seen the movie. I'm going to bed now.
Current Mood: exhaustedexhausted
Current Music: Hum of my air conditioner

The fair was last week? Shows what I know when I don't drive through town very often. I would have at least liked to drop by and walk around but if this year was like any of the last few I probably would have gone through, decided the games weren't worth my time, the merchandise not worth my money and the food too expensive to make me hungry (even the elephant ears are four bucks now.)

Damn! I just realized I missed the demo derby. Something I rarely miss. Thanks a lot SacredSpud.

Gosh Jim, I really dropped the ball on this one. I wasn't aware of the fair until yesterday either. I'm not too upset though, as I've pretty much given up on the games and rides. Spending six dollars on a small, unhealthy lunch was enough for me.

You will probably be able to see the corset on me if you show up at the Pride Parade...that's when it is making its debut.
Garmonbozia for the soul.
