America Online isn't going to be Linux's killer app @ 10:10 pm

After work around 5:30 Derek and I head into downtown to catch a little 13 Ghosts. I wanted to get there really early (an hour) because seating wasn't guaranteed. My last "sneak preview" was sold out 100%, not a single seat left. So after driving around trying to find a parking spot and Derek freaking out about driving in downtown* we find a spot and walk to the theater. When we got there about 50 minutes early there were maybe 30 people in line. By the time the movie started the theater was only about 75% full.

So the movie starts to roll and I see this big guy stand up and yell "Put that damn thing out now before I rip your fucking head off!" It was great! Some kid must have been up towards the front or something playing with his lighter (he had been earlier) and he really pissed this guy off. Big biker looking dude, pretty funny stuff.

So the movie rolls and it was pretty good. Good horror/suspense flick. Not quite a scary as I was expecting but still a really good movie. Just for once I'd like them to make a horror movie where the main characters are NOT COMPLETELY FUCKING RETARDED! But I suppose that's how you make the plot flow in a scary movie. I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but whatever.

So after the movie Derek and I drive back into the 'burbs to come home. Derek wanted to go to Burger King and get something to eat so we stop in. Our first clue should have been the school bus, but that didn't stop us. We went inside to find thirty one 15-16 year old girls and some volleyball coaches. It was like an N'Sync video exploded in Burger King. Derek said now he remembered why he didn't date in high school, all the girls were retarded. I agreed that all the girls in there were totally insane, but if you're a 15-16 year old guy that's what you're looking for.

So now I'm home, relaxing, reading some email and catching up on LJ.

* Driving in downtown is really not that hard. If you know how to do it it's really easy, people just get way too intimidated by it.

No dude... I love downtown, it's cool. Lots of people, lots of energy. Just the dude that was driving gets all freaked out driving down there. He's a llama.

Parallel parking is easy too... Driving on a one way street is easy... Circling the block is easy. Literally it requires no skill. I think people get all freaked out driving close quarters like that, thinking other drivers will get pissed, they don't.

Try parking on the west-side during business hours. It's a different world.

Finding parking is hard, but I have a PSU pass so I'm good!
