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
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?I'm sorry, that's not even funny if you've seen the movie. I'm going to bed now.
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.
