Think About Your Favorite Movies, Then Read This
So people usually have this crazy reaction when they hear that I don’t particularly like watching movies. They almost seem offended when they find out that I haven’t seen Star Wars or Harry Potter films. It isn’t that I don’t like movies.. I just don’t like watching them.
Now you get it?
I didn’t think so. Let’s just pretend I made a very compelling argument right there and pretend to be convinced.
I really like stories, in books and in conversations. I like them in movies too, but I watch movies in pieces because it is difficult for me to be guided entirely by a screen where my mind has no wiggle room. Explosion here, the sound of steps in an empty hallway there. I would know exactly what a character’s voice sounds like and that’s weird to me. No mystery, no questioning. Were stories really meant to be told like that?
Anyway, I would like to welcome myself back into this blog.
The question of the day is:
If you were stranded on an island, and you could bring with you 5 movies, which movies would they be?

Failing at Things
Have you ever said “leetle” instead of “little” or something similar?
When you mispronounce something, you will get teased for a little bit. You just have to take it. It happens sometimes though, sort of like when you’re writing and the next word begins with the letter that the previous letter ends with and you…
Oh, right, let me explain:
Suppose you’re taking notes and the lecturer says “Many green ninjas.” Because of some weird supernatural phenomenon, you will be tempted to write “many gree ninjas”. Maybe it’s just me.
It isn’t that you forgot how to write, or how to speak… you just messed up. People fail at common things all the time, like eating ice cream.
Just sitting there.
Of course you can also take something common and make awesome, like this guy:
When someone gets offended
Today has been ruff.
Checking yourself out on a reflective window
Men and women have a completely different way of approaching a reflective surface. Men typically look at themselves, and straighten up the posture and relax the shoulders.
Women, on the other hand, have a script written out detailing their every move. Let’s assume that you are a woman walking down the street at 7am, not many people are around and you are trying out a new shirt.
Woman is walking down the street. She spots a giant window belonging to a Thai restaurant to her right. Trying act all casual, she keeps walking, and glances at herself. Well more specifically, glances at HER BUTT.
It’s a “thing”.. Women enjoy checking out their butts.
Then she straightens out her shirt, she adjusts her skirt, makes sure she brings out the chest area, and bam! she’s good to go.
Some go as far as to walk up to the surface, smile very widely to check their teeth, and check those dark lines they paint around the eyes (I forget the name).
This seems like every day stuff to you guys, but have you ever been INSIDE a store or office, and have been able to witness such things happening? It happened to me while I was drinking some tea one morning. People would literally walk up to the window and stick out their butts while leaning their heads back, get rid of that wedgie, and keep walking. Dudes mostly adjusted their collars and straightened their posture.
Have you ever been checking yourself out on a window and then slowly the image of the people on the other side begins to become clear through the glass?
