Thigh Lube

Crash (2005) = 9.5/10. Love it! Except for one thing. If you do something irrational based on anger, hate, or stupidity, don't complain to me when something bad happens to you. I guess I didn't see this movie as being totally race related--just people making irrational decisions. *possible spoiler alert* Like a) Yelling at cops isn't a bright thing to do, b) If a man tells you that you need to fix your door instead of just the lock, don't assume he's trying to scam you, c) If someone picks you up as a hitchhiker, assume that the person thinks you are a killer and don't yell at him.

Good day for me:

* I finally made it over to Fleet Feet and the sales woman asked me if I was training for an event when I told her I wanted some shoes. I laughed and said jokingly, "Oh come on. Do I LOOK like a runner? Yeah, I'm just doing treadmill stuff with incline basically." The fact that she didn't just assume I wasn't training for something made me feel good, though. And the good feeling was G-O-N-E as soon as I saws the video of myself running on the treadmill. Watching yourself run on tape just isn't sexy. But very educational.

* I had no clue a product was made to prevent inner thigh chafing. I didn't buy any, but the woman at the store said it was basically like Vasoline except it doesn't get on clothes. I call that inner thigh lube. Funny.

* No, I'm not a runner. But I did start a brand new, probably short-term treadmill project today (is that good enough, BK?).

* This morning I when I was getting out of the shower, I noticed one of my head hairs was stuck to the ceiling. How does that happen?

* I called my dad this evening, talked to him for five minutes, and then told him I was on my way to Lowe's to buy a plunger. I NEVER go to home improvement stores. He was also driving on the way to the same Lowe's. Fancy meeting him there.

* I successfully plunged my toilet tonight. I have never been successful in my prior attempts in Houston. Then again, I didn't know the lip thingy was supposed to be sticking out. Doh!

I'm not sure I should follow a bodyglide thigh-lube link while at work...

Ya, I thought door needed replaced guy wasn't totally living in reality. Pretty good movie though.

I watched Deuce Bigalow European Jigalow sun night and "Good Night, and good luck" lat night. Kinda at opposite ends of the movie spectrum.

I promise it's totally safe for work. It just sounds dirrty.

I'll watch Good Night later.

I was so glad that door fixing guy didn't die. I really liked him and he wasn't even mean/rude to anyone.

Stupid store guy was a jerk.

Rach - when are we going to rent Being John Malkovich?

Rachel said...

We're renting Being John Malcovich? Hmm...my memory is failing me. How about in a month after I get through the current 8 movie influx from Blockbuster and Netflix movies? It's available from the library, too. Good, FREE times. :)

after watching Being John M, you must watch Adaptation. It's only 1% related to Being John, but it's very good. It's not a sequel, but it does sorta tie in (it's sorta about the guy that wrote BJM)

Rachel said...

I did see Adaptation. I think I watched it over the course of a few days and was thus confused.

Must have been the Lowes in Bixby. Probably won't ever see me there, as my apartments are ADJACENT to the Lowes at 71st and 169-- I love that Subway they've got in there.

giselle said...

Do you have the subway smell after eating at that subway?

Amanda Z said...

Probably... But my mom managed a Subway for years and I worked at a Subway the summer after high school so I really don't notice it as much.

giselle said...

What do you think the smell is? Is it the onions/vegetables? Fresh baked bread? I love subway but I'm a little bothered by the subway smell after I leave. I never really thought about it until a couple of weeks ago when about 8 of us went and when we got back to our tiny office you could definitely smell it.

Rachel said...

I think it's the bread.
