Ok. Might as well do this while I'm good and drunk and still filled with rage. Well, more happy drunk than rage at this point.
Here's the thing. I wanted to go see Fahrenheit 9/11. I'm very glad that I did. It's a very entertaining film. At this point, however, I'm already plenty angry at GW Bush. I joined the Democratic party specifically to oppose the man. Seeing this film did not change my perspective of anyone involved.
Therein lies the problem. The only people who are going to see the film, most likely, are people who like M. Moore and who oppose Bush. Democratic, Green, doesn't matter. In the theater I was in, whenever anyone would say "I'm joining the Democratic party," the theater would erupt into cheers, annoying the crap out of me and forcing the one Republican in the theater to very quietly say "Boo" (not "Boo-urns," either, just "Boo").
So, while I loved the film and it gets a very high thumbs up from me, I don't think that it's going to change any opinions. Though hey, it just might change enough opinions that we can get this incredibly scary and fucking stupid man out of office.
That being said, I had a wonderful time because I was on a date with someone. A math major in college, so she knows her shit. She's willing to talk about theoretical physics, and quarks and gluons, with a real passion in her voice. Having a passion about physics, I've decided, is one of the sexiest things ever.
And she's wicked fucking hot. Yet here's something. We first went out yesterday. We had many a drink and talked for five hours. It's entirely possible that we kissed a few times. So that was great, as she's a good kisser. Then, tonight, we went and saw a movie. The problem is that she very recently got out of a long-term relationship. My questions are as follows.
How do I avoid becoming the rebound relationship? How do I let the girl know that she's the coolest person I've met in the city so far without seeming like I'm saying it just to get into a relationship? And how long do I need to wait before I become frustrated with being right next to a girl who's clearly awesome without picking her up whenever I want to and kissing her in the street?
Ahh well. Damned if I know. I think what I'm going to do is play it smooth. I'll do the whole bit of business where I pretend that I'm not that interested but in actuality have this big crush on a girl, then wait something like three days before I call her. Then tell her what a wonderful time i had at DAAAMN II.
I'll also just assume that she doesn't read the website regularly because wouldn't that be awkward. Particularly if she also read the "Why I'm a horrible boyfriend" article, as I think it portrays me in a poor light. Granted, I'm the one who wrote it. It's still a very funny bit, though, and anytime you can say "and then she took off her leg..." is alright by me.
Anyway. I really liked the film, and I liked the chick, so both get a cheery thumbs up. And a big thumbs down goes to our president. He's just a horrible human being. Evil man and I hope his daughters end up serving in one of the wars he just decided to start. Go see the movie!
