Gothika = 6/10. Things weren't explained as well as I thought they should have been. Like, who really killed him? Pretty good, though. I don't like scary movies, yet somehow about 5 are on my queue list. Doug watched this with me and he kept his promise not to shout "boo" throughout any of it. He also did that during Red-Eye. Gotta love the man. Oh wait...yeah, I DO love the man.
And speaking of Doug, I've determined after long and thoughtful consideration that he does NOT look good in a leather vest with fringe. We went to Barfington Coat Factory last night in search of, you guessed it, a coat. Toward the end I got a little bored and a little scared (the place was full of shady-looking individuals) and I had him try on the three fugliest coats I could find. Would this marshmallow coat look good on anyone in this color of blue? Who buys that stuff? I got my laughs in for the night.
Here comes the part where I offend many people (though I'm thinking of Amanda Z at the moment).
What a bust! The five of us (two case managers, two mentees, & me) walked around for two hours at the Tulsa State Fair Tuesday. What a completely lame place. Or maybe since I've been to Disney Land/World multiples times, I just don't get impressed anymore. Let me break down why the fair is such a lame place:
A) The rides- Mother of GOD! You will never catch me on rides that travel around the country run by people named Cletus. OK, I'm lying. I will ride these rides, but I just will have to block from my mind the fact that they are poorly maintained. Yeah, some of them are very cool looking, but I want some reasonable assurance that I will be alive after the three minutes of doom.
B) The food- I had my very first deep fried Snickers bar Tuesday. It did not meet my expectations. Sure, the food at the fair is good, but I always feel like I'm throwing my money at a drug addict, transient redneck, or someone who just barely passed the food handler permit. If I just don't think about it, I'm ok.
C) The people- Any place where the number of mullets outnumber children is no place for Rachel.
D) The exhibits- One giant infomercial + bracelets out the wazoo. I'm pretty sure my TV gets those stations.
I have to admit that the birthing center is cool. Piglets are so C-U-T-E that for a moment I thought about laying off the bacon. Then I realized that bacon tastes good. Seriously, though...I have never seen anything in real life give birth. Someone with a knocked up animal needs to invite me over when it has babies. I need to see that.
The petting zoo next door to the birthing center provided me with my one really odd sight.
