Valkyrie    2008-12-21 09:47:05 ET
Sadly enough I am excited to see this film. I do not like Tom Cruise but my interest in WW2/Third Reich history and my knowledge of the July 20th bomb plot compells me to do so. I have been looking forward to seeing Valkyrie since I heard it was coming out months ago. It has been a spell since any film captivated me so much. I will be seeing it next weekend as here the weather will be snow-stormy on Annual Gift Giving Day.
I also want to see The Spirit, though I know nothing of the story of that film, the visuals alone are enough to pique my interest. I loved Sin City, was alright with 300, I am just attracted to the Frank Miller style I suppose.
Lately, my interests film wise, have strayed into silents, particularly the wonderful German Expressionist silents, I am looking to buy The Golem, Nosferatu, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I also want Haxan, A History of Witchcraft which is a spoof of all the old wives tales and legends surrounding witchcraft, images of this silent have been used in videos and the like.
Now, I just need money for all of these, heh heh.

The Call of Cthulhu.
Shhh, he's on the phone.

 Not some of my finer moments...    2008-12-01 17:54:33 ET
My return to Missouri so far has:
I became ill the first night Damian and I were on the road so I was not able to drive any the remainder of the trip, all I did was sit in the front seat and groan. Of course, I hadn't been sick for months prior to this, a great harbinger of things to come.
After having to go all the way to St Louis to drop Damian off at the airport, I had to drive all the way back to Ozark, that is 3 hours each way people, I was sick to death of being in that bloody car! Than, of course, getting onto the onramp that is about 10 minutes away from the house, I get into a car accident. Fortunately, the people I rear ended were not hurt and their car was not really the worse for wear. Alas, I could not say the same for my car, the front grill was completely smashed in, just front end devasation.
Oh, it gets better. Due to the backwater, quite possibly inbred and retarded local heads of state, if you get into an accident and it is deemed your fault, you have to go to court or face stiff penalties, no matter how innocous the accident is. What?!
So, I have not had a car since November 14th, I have been stuck in the house and I am going stir crazy... fun times. Oh, and the insurance company wanted to total my car and give me about $5k for it, not terrible but I would still owe $3k on a car that I would no longer have, so instead I went with the $3900 settlement to repair the car, and whatever the overage is, my father will cover it.
And my hair looks so incredibly different, it is in a short, sort of 1920's bob, and white blonde, since we all figured that in this state, looking as normal as possible in front of the local judges is a wise idea. I need to get used to it, I mean, I am naturally blonde so the color looks good on me but I've just had the black hair for years, I needed something fresh and new.
I am supposed to get my car back sometime this week, which is fortunate as I might go mad at any moment. At least I have books and Funtrivia to keep me distracted. ;p

 Bad News...    2008-11-03 10:45:17 ET
I am returning to Missouri for awhile, definitely for the remainder of the year, most likely longer. Many things have been pondered over to make this very difficult decision. Financially would have to be the key motivation right now, I haven't worked since August, I have had no luck finding a decent i.e. non-retail job, one that gives full time hours and will pay me enough money to live off of, they are just not out there, definitely not for someone with my skill level, I have no degrees, no experience in working office jobs so I am probably not high on their list of applicants. And beyond that, I am simply tired of working these crap jobs, I am better than this, I am wasting my intellect and my talents, I am not getting any younger, maybe it is finally time for me to grow up and take some responsibility for my life, I am the only one who can change anything. So I am going to look into begininning to further my education so I can have a real career hopefully by the time I am 30, I just can't do this anymore, my life is directionless and unfocused, having a goal will make me feel as though I'm accomplishing something.
California is just too...distracting I think, too much going on, too many people, too much to assault the senses, going to MO will certainly narrow my scope of experience but I need that right now, I can't have the distraction of possibilities, this probably sounds a bit silly but it is hard to express these kind of thoughts. I will be leaving after Bat's Day, D and I are going to be driving there, which should be an interesting little adventure, roadtrips always have their share of intrigue.
So, if anyone wants to hang out, this is the week, after that, no telling when I will be returning...actually, it will be sometime next year, definitely, hopefully with a solid footing going into a more optimistic future.
Thank you to everyone for showing me a hell of a time but mark my words, I will be back, count on it.

 What is it with...    2008-10-14 15:04:37 ET
the genetic defects that seem to be all over the road?! Seriously, today someone turning on a green light, because I am certain that where they had to be was so important that they surely should not have to bother with looking first, comes within inches of hitting me. If I hadn't been paying strict attention and swerved in time, almost losing control of my vehicle in the process, the idiot would t-boned me, on the driver's side, which is about the worst kind of auto accident you can have.
Argh, do they give any unter menschen with a pulse a fucking liscense?! Aren't there tests you have to take, written ones these people probably cannot even read, much less pass! Of course, I am going on the assumption these morons actually have driver's liscenses. Sigh, no wonder I hate driving so much, I can only control what I do, and I don't trust many other people with controlling what they do properly enough to put my personal safety in their primiative hands.
I apologize for ranting, I was just dumbstruck by some careless oaf in too much of a bloody rush to make sure he/she wasn't using their tons of auto as a deadly weapon, I myself just try to be a bit more cautious than that, but by now I should realize that people are not like me.
K thanks, Pam.
