Annoyed...

This week has been an exercise in frustration and almosts. For example, last Saturday I was invited to an impromptu party at a friends house. There were no drugs, alcohol or any kinds of illegal substances; she's Mormon. However there was chocolate (somehow that gets around the caffeine ban?) and pizza so that was enjoyable. All seven of us ended up sitting on a couch and a few chairs and I found myself in a rather awkward position.

 

I was lying lengthwise on the couch behind the hot, Norweigan, blond captain of our swim team. For the length of two movies. There was less than an inch separating us, we couldn't have been closer short of spooning. Many would have killed to have had the position I'd had. I'm not one of those many.

 

The opportunity was wasted on me; somehow females just don't seem to do much for me. I spent most of the evening spitting her hair out of my mouth actually... Ah well, such is life. At least the chocolate was good.

 

-------------------------------------------------

 

Monday night I prepped for a Math Test that I desperately needed to study for. Well, at least I started to prep for it but I was feeling a little tired so I decided to sleep for an hour or two and went to bed at 7:30 PM. I woke up at 7:00 AM, managing to have slept for 11 1/2 hours... Insane. I, of course, failed the math test.

 

I started the week with a 40% in Physics. Two of my friends had percentages in the low 20's. I managed to argue my way up to a B, but the failed test today is probably going to drop me back down again. Fun times. The Quarter ends this week too.

 

-------------------------------------------------

 

Possibly gay valedictorian saw Brokeback Mountain. He and every girl who went to see it (actually, he's the only guy I know who'll admit to seeing it) decided that it was robbed of the Oscar and are all uniformly upset. It's quite amusing actually. It's just a movie, it's entertainment, yet they get worked up over it. Then again, considering how I reacted to the end of DD I guess I don't have the clearest moral authority to be stating that. I still feel Dom made what could've been a really great story less than it should have been with that ending.

 

For those who are looking for a new fix after DD, I highly reccomend Someday out of the Blue by LittleBuddhaTW.

P.S. I thought it might be nice if I went and actually acknowledge all of you who are kind enough to take the time to read my ramblings, so I dedicated a separate post to you guys!

 

*edit* Thanks Friendly for catching my error ;)

Hey Shadows :D

LOL I'm not Mormon, but I don't use caffeine, and YES chocolate is definitely able to get around that ban!

 

....well except for right now. I gave it, and meat up for Lent (I'm still having seafood though, lol I'm doing my temporary vegetarianism the "Catholic way" :P:boy: ).

I'm sorry, dude, but WOW that's some kinda arguing skills you've got!

I saw it, it was okay I suppose. I think coming here sort of spoiled me. I mean I guess I'm starting to take gay entertainment for granted, so even though I can appreciate the cultural significance, and even admit that the story had quite a few good points; it just wasn't really my type of movie.

 

For those who are looking for a new fix after DD, I highly reccomend Something out of the Blue by LittleBuddhaTW.

 

I completely agree, I love that story! I think it's Someday Out of the Blue though. I hope it's okay for me to do this. Here's a link to it: Someday Out of the Blue

 

Anyway have an awesome day, Shadows, take care, and good luck with physics!

Shadows...Gay valedictorian is most certainly Gay and Yes Brokeback Mountain was robbed. There have been several news articles that oh so Gay Hollywood isn't so Gay and they felt that the movie was too Gay..whatever that means and that there was rampant homophobia coming through since many believed the movie went too far.....heaven forbid Gays actually have a relationship shown in a mainstream movie....I am with Gay Valedictorian and his str8 allies...It pained me that Brokeback Mountain lost....the newsclippings that I read said the Academy voters sleezed out by voting for Crash and could claim to feel good about themselves since Crash dealt with racism....grrrr..

 

when even Jack Nicholsan (who is Mr. Macho) said Brokeback Mountain, which he voted for, got robbed...it makes me wonder what these so called accepting types were thinking.

 

If you get a chance read Annie Proulx's short story "Brokeback Mountain" before you go to see the movie.

 

I agree with Kevin..you have great argument skills......from Mock Trial to going from an F to a B...congrats..

 

Now the key is to get to spoon and sit next to hot Gay Valedictorian Guy at the next movie night or ask him to see Brokeback Mountain with you.....now that would be way cool...hey, there's your shot:) go for it:) Any guy who can go from an F to a B by your persuasive skills can certainly get hot Gay Valedictorian Guy to go to see Brokeback Mountain with you:)

 

Good Luck and go for it:)
