Several bits of trivia floating about in the brain.

First off, I'm pleased to say that I was able to fix my Internet trouble, at least temporarily. I'm looking about for a wireless alternative, because I will be damned if I'm going to give a Comcast executive a new car this year. Instead, I'll give the wireless people a new car - hey, at least I won't be tripping over my desk this way. Those of you waiting on mail from me - well, that didn't take long, now did it?

Speaking of mail, I received a rather interesting one today from a guy here that stated, "You seem to be a pretty interesting person, but in all truth, your temper scares the hell out of me. I don't think I want to meet you now."

First of all: if you didn't want to meet me, why the hell are you writing to me to tell me so? Do you honestly think I'm going to give it a second thought? Duh....

The word for today, boys and girls, is "moron" - do you know any morons? I just bet you do!

Second: I have a very moderate temper, actually, thanks. It only gets "bad" when I've been screwed about, you see. For example: when my DSL account is cut off after I've paid it through February 12th, or when seven telemarketers call me in a row while I'm trying to sleep so I can go to a night job. These to me are justifiable situations where, yes, I might actually call you a fucking idiot. But even then, I'll do it in a very pleasant, even voice. I don't shriek like a wounded cow, or fit the stereotype of a nagging, screaming bitch. Instead, I'll smile - sort of a cross between a sneer and a laugh, really - and *then* comes the zinger. Much more effective. Really unnerves the shit out of people, too.

Third: Yes, I am rather interesting.

To the person who wrote me asking me which movie it was that I missed at the Charles this weekend, it was "The Squid And The Whale". I heard this morning it was nominated for an Oscar, too, although I don't know which category or any of that. It's a shame that I missed it, really; I was looking forward to seeing it. If anyone who's reading this has seen it, I'd appreciate it if you would let me know what the movie was like, if you'd be so kind. Sadly, it's not at the Charles this upcoming weekend. I'll probably have to settle for "Brokeback Mountain", although I've been wondering what that one's like, too.

No, I don't think movies such as "King Kong" are worth it - if you couldn't tell. Interestingly enough, the critics didn't seem to think the aforementioned was worth it, either. Teehee....

I do pay close attention to the animated features that come out, though, as it's a particular interest of mine. "The Corpse Bride" and "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" are both up for Best animated Film this year - they were both excellent, but I'm pulling for Nick Park. I've always loved Wallace and Gromit. =)

Ah, well, enough of my rambling tonight. Comments are welcomed, as always, but if you don't want to comment - pfft, that's welcomed too.
