No more room in Hell [Mar. 28th, 2004|10:59 pm]

I went and saw "Dawn of the Dead" on Friday with Shadoe and Turbo Dan. Holy shit, that was a scary movie. Before the opening credits even rolled, I was already freaking out. On the inside of course. One has to keep up appearances when trying to impress a girl. I think I might have crushed my fillings though.

Shadoe and I were sharing a popcorn and it was sitting on the arm of the chair between us. When (something happens that I'm not going to tell you because it's a spoiler), she just like, did this weird jump thing like your cat does when you turn on the vacuum cleaner. The popcorn flew off of the chair, and then THAT scared her, so she did like this double jump freakout thing and practically ended up in Turbo Dan's lap. It was hilarious.

By the end of the movie, she was so freaked out that she was crushing both my hand AND Turbo Dan's hand. I think she might have broken my pinky. It was so worth it though. Any excuse to touch the girl...

After the movie, we were hanging out behind the theater in the parking lot talking. It was late and there was nobody around. Then another movie must have let out, because this huge group of people pours out of the theater. My heart just exploded with adrenalin and I very nearly started running. On a subconscious level I had assumed that they were a pack of bloodthirsty zombies. How fucked up is that?

Oh, I almost forgot this other funny thing: When we were buying the tickets, Turbo Dan goes up to the window and says "Three children for Dawn of the Dead." The girl working there goes "Um, you guys aren't children." He just gives her this big dumb Turbo Dan smile and says, "We're all children, on the *inside*." She kind of looks at him with this weird smitten grin and then sells him the tickets for children's price! LOL! Sometimes it's nice to have a Turbo Dan on your team.

I worried somewhat before the movie that somehow it would be worse then the original, as Hollywood tends to have a poor record overall when it comes to remakes. I am certainly glad I was wrong. Personally, I think it was one of the best horror flicks around, and it is good to see zombie movies made with a desire for a good, scary story and that 28 Days Later wasn't a fluke in that regard.

And the moral of the story is...

Put the popcorn on the *other* side. That way, when the double freaky jump comes, you end up with a lap full of Shadoe instead of popcorn. Plus, the added bonus of getting to reach accross the pretty girl for the popcorn. For bonus points, you can even absentmindedly reach for the popcorn while "absorbed" in the movie and "accidentally" get yourself a handfull of nipplecorn instead. Whoops. *wink*

Wow! Yes! You should write a book in this stuff. Just the phrase "lap full of Shadoe" makes me feel funny in my stomach. In a good way.

You're so cool. Dude, you're the fuckin' Fonz.

Heh. See, I was more amused at the phrase "nipplecorn" then I was at "lapful of Shadoe", but then again, I don't actually know Shadoe.

By the way.. what happens if Shadoe or Turbo Dan reads your LJ?

Most of my friends are either realspace friends or cyberspace friends, and rarely do the two groups cross (hi Timb!). I'm not too concerned about the realspacers discovering my LJ. I don't talk to them about it or anything, so they probably don't even know I keep one.

Anyway If Shadoe really doesn't have a phone, odds are she also isn't a huge internet user. And I guess if she does discover my journal somehow, well, I haven't said anything but good stuff about her. Maybe it would be to my advantage...

And Turbo Dan won't find it until the day that you can read LJ from a Sega Genesis.

Hey! What about your old pal Marcus?

Don't I count as a crossover friend too?

Dude, I was just making generalizations, not an itemized list.

Let the record show that Marcus is also a combination real/cyberspace friend.

There, happy now, you needy little bitch?
