I stress out about the dumbest things. I called Janel the other night to wish her a happy birthday. Instead of actually saying the words happy birthday I said, "I just wanted to say hey because it's May 4th." Uhhhh...what? She knew what I was saying, of course, but I felt like an idiot quickly after hanging up. I am still stressing about it, which I understand is completely pointless as she probably didn't care and has already forgotten about it, and it wasn't a big deal in the first place. Regardless, I think why didn't I just say happy birthday? I know the exact reason why, actually. I wasn't sure if it was her birthday or not...I've only known her for a few months and only last week learned when her birthday was...I wasn't exactly sure, therefore I didn't want to say it and have it not be correct. I hate freaking out about dumb things.
I think I'm getting ruder (more rude?) than usual. I'm snippy with Meridith, it seems. I don't mean to be, but it happens nonetheless. I've never been good at hiding my emotions and so its difficult to be around people I don't enjoy (completely off the Meridith subject, by the way Mer) because I will overtly ignore them. Extreme peppiness is grating. The other day I was sitting here reading a long, technical tutorial on something and suddenly Roommate #2 yells across the room, "Would you shut up over there? I can't even get a word in!" I was thoroughly annoyed. I know she wants me to join in their lame conversations about things like Roommate #1's misspellings on some paper, but I don't find them interesting. I'd rather do my thing and they do theirs. I wanted to yell "Bite me", which I'm sure would have made my mother very proud, ha! Instead I muttered something like an apology for all my talking, I'll try to keep it to a minimum next time...something lame.
I don't like being at home. I like to be left alone, and I don't get that here. I used to be able to go into my bedroom and everything would be better but Roommate #2 now yells questions through my door. Leave. Me. Alone. Don't bang on my door and ask what my plans are for the weekend. It doesn't matter. They will not include you. I don't care if your boyfriends little brother will be in town. Do. Not. Care. Shut up and leave me in peace.
Callous? Maybe. But really, I don't bang on your bedroom door and tell you that I bought new shoes, do I? No. So why do you think I would want you to do it to me?
I have added to my DVD collection quite a bit in the past week, which I am thoroughly excited about. I love movies--especially comedies and explosion-filled movies. Just another way in which I'm just like my Daddy. I watched The Italian Job last night; I'd forgotten how much I like that one. What do I love more than movies?, why movie quotes of course...
My collection is still pretty small (most of my movies in the original collection were on VHS)
So far I have, in no particular order:
To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar ("Oh look that little latin boy in drag is crying, find out why the little latin boy in drag is crying" "Little latin boy in drag why are you crying?")

But I just thought "too soon" for Arabs, maybe next year. You know, the ball is in their court.") ("I have been Michael's number two guy for about five years, and we make a great team. We're like one of those classic famous teams. He's like Mozart and I'm like Mozart's friend. No, I'm like Butch Cassidy and Michael is like Mozart. You try and hurt Mozart, you're gonna get a bullet in your head courtesy of Butch Cassidy.")

NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY! NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?")

Spice World ("Check!" "What d'you mean 'check'?" "I mean check; my bishop's got your king." "Where?" "There! You've either got to move it in front, or move it out of the way." "Well I'll move that fairground horse to there. Sort that out!" "You can't do that!" "Says who?" "Says Mr. Chess! It's been in the rules for thousands of years! "Well I'm gonna break the rules and set this little fairground horse free amongst all these little square fields, like that. There!" "I'm gonna slap you in a minute!")

Mystery Men ("Well yeah, if we had a billionaire like Lance Hunt as our benefactor" "That's because Lance Hunt is Captain Amazing" "Don't start that again. Lance Hunt wears glasses.
