This post probably won't end up being about work, but I'll leave the title alone because that's how I feel.
Today is Halloween. I'm dressed up as nothing, because I am an adult. My children are a giant Candy Corn and a UPS man. Last year they were a bumblebee (I think) and a Red Sox player. The year before they were a ladybug and a dinosaur. Before that they were a princess and a fish. Before that we only had one kid and she was a peacock. And before that she was a sweat pea.
Halloween is the stupidest event of the year. I immediately lose all respect for anyone who says Halloween is her (it's only women, for some reason) favorite "holiday." Calling Halloween a holiday probably makes Jesus spin in His grave.
Other things that make me discount people as morons: smoking, swearing, having visible tattoos, placing sports bets, taking pride in an "I was so drunk" story, or talking loudly about how expensive something was (as opposed to how cheap something was, which is acceptable.)
True story about a drunk girl: I went to class last year and the girl in front of me smelled (I thought) like beer, but I wasn't sure because I don't spend a whole lot of time around the stuff. Another girl came in and sat next to the first one and the first one started up her, "OMG, I was out so late last night and got so wasted!" story. The second one asked, "Have you showered?" The first said, "No, why?" And the second said, "Because you smell like alcohol." Ha ha! A joke at a the alcoholic's expense! However, the alcoholic is a really nice girl and every time I see her around campus and talk to her, I feel bad that I think this story is funny. Which is why it's a good thing she's spending this semester in Europe, so I won't have to see her and I can just enjoy the story without any shame.
Well, I'm just about out of stuff to say, so let me just end with a list of movies that I thought were cool when I was a kid because I didn't understand them but I was certain they were cool, but now that I'm older and understand them, I now see them as the stupid movies they always were:
4. Reservoir Dogs
2. Pulp Fiction
1. E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial
