I'm no longer married to the sea. I figured it was time to get rid of the joke account. It's been, like, more than 5 months. It's, uh, getting replaced with something else.

It's all rainbows and unicorns here. For some reason sometimes I like to play at conflict, pretending to my friends that there was a big row, staging fights in the street for unsuspecting passers-by, that sort of thing. But it's all fake. It's all rainbows and unicorns.

I watched The Wrestler last night. That guy had really small legs. I party like a fireman. It seemed almost Greek at points. It had imperfections: the daughter thing was feasible, but thin. The stripper, in the end, was a little off, but feasible.

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight!

Okay, I'm kind of chained to my desk for the moment because $UBERBOSS is in a meeting with the other executives and occasionally has little requests for information about stuff and things that need fast turnaround.

I bought another umbrella yesterday. Now I have three. This is an ideal number. One for the car. One for work. One for at home. It was pouring yesterday when I got out of work and I had to go walk somewhere. I had no umbrella.

I have finals next week. Accounting, I just have to go over the work again, make sure I've got it. Econ, I still have assignments to complete which are due at the exam. One is estimated to take 10 hours, one is estimated to take perhaps 2. Bleh. Plus the studying. It won't be too bad. Aw crud. I suggested having company on Sunday. Screw it. Nobody said they were coming.

It was twenty years ago today Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.

Okay, I think I don't have to be tied to my desk anymore. Someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear.

The Wrestler by theboz (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri May 08, 2009 at 07:58:44 AM EST
I watched it last night too.  I liked it, but there wasn't quite enough establishment of certain characters to make it feel completely realistic in their interactions.

As far as the stripper was concerned, I don't think that she liked him as much as felt sorry for him out of pity for herself.  He was a washed up old wrestling star, she was a washed up old stripper.  Nobody wanted either of them anymore.  It seemed kind of heavy-handed in the way they presented that, but it was ok I suppose since we saw her titties.

As far as the daughter is concerned, it was way too predictable how he screwed up.  I saw that coming from the moment he invited her to dinner.

Anyway, it was still a decent movie and I think it says a lot about our society and how our heroes are easily replaceable.
