Last night, as I sat here in my nightie, perusing the internet in a very laid back and leisurely way, my cell phone rang. It was 10:07 pm. I was all scrubbed up and done for the day, not planning to go anyplace else before bed.
I answered the phone to find that Binky was about to leave for Tinseltown Theater and she wanted to see if I was going to make it for the 10:20 showing of "The Davinci Code".
ACK! I forgot all about that!!! We had made a plan over the weekend to see the movie on Tuesday night.
So I threw on my duds and hit the road with a side show bob hairdo and no make up. (It is a rare occurance for a southern belle to go out without being fully groomed.)To be completely accurate, I did put on a little light lipstick and a few strokes of the mascara wand, but I was pretty much au naturale.
We had a good time. The movie is long. Just when you think it's pretty much over, it's not. I enjoyed the movie. I don't know why people can't just see a film that is presented as a work of fiction, suspend their scrutiny and disbelief for the sake of entertainment, and keep their religious beliefs to themselves.
I heard that albinos are upset over the albino monk character. Are monks up in arms about that same character? That strikes me as ridonkulous. They weren't saying that all albinos are crazed murderers.
The world is filled with idjits and assholes.
I like Tom Hanks's hair that way. He needs to keep that.
I got home at 2:00 am.
Then I went to sleep and dreamed the most amazing dream. I won't spill all the details, because you'd have to be me or my dearly departed though not dead boyfriend, to get all the details... but here's the main gist: If life as we know it were over, what realizations would you make? Who would you be with? What would you be doing? How fast could you let go of stupid ideas and grudges, and matters of propriety if you were in your last few days on earth?
I get it.
