Bridget Jones...

Ladies and guys (if you’re interested) ... You just have to see Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason It’s amazing, hilarious ... words can’t describe it ... the trailers don’t do it justice ... it’s a 100 times better than the first one (I know because I watched it last week) ... I so have to see it again... National Treasure was out too and it was sold out/packed .. I guess I'll have to see it sometime later..

My 3eed...

Place: fast food joint Time: Late Saturday Night After the late night movie, that I keep calling ‘Dawn of the Dead’ with the guy at the ticket booth giving me the what?! look … turns out the movie is called ‘After the Sunset’ .. a nice, entertaining movie .. we decided to go check out the scene at the village … we go into this crowded café and they tell us to wait for 20 minutes OUTSIDE because the place is crowded .. since the weather was too cold (-2ºC cold) to stand outside, I decided to grab something to eat at a nearby famous after hours fast food joint. So we all go there, sit at a table while I went and ordered… as I came back with the orders and took a seat, a guy out of no where joins our table and starts chatting .. anyway, here’s how it goes… Drunk Guy(DG): so where’re you guys from? I keep my silence .. but I so wanted to say something... then A couple of friends: Kuwait DG: oooh the mid-east *light bulb above my head* he’s drunk *evil grin* time to have some fun .. it’s always fun chitchatting with drunks Me: pointing at Friend 1(F1) she’s from Afghanistan F1 smiling F1: where are YOU from? DG: my @#$%^ dad came on a ship from @#$%#$ Ireland F1: censored Me: Ghal6aaaanaaaaaaaaaaaaa…!! Laughter Me: pointing at Friend 2 (F2) she’s Saddam Hussain’s third cousin F2: he’s my great uncle Notice the inconsistency, I sense he’s a bit scared .. I tune out and start eating… DG: where are you from? Me: India, where are you really from? DG: Cincinnati, Ohio F1: oh Ohio you people messed up the elections… a7na shako?! DG: gets a bit aggravated YOU PEOPLE don’t even vote! Me: smirking coldly yes we do DG: NO! Me: yes we do DG: you’re not even American F1: who wants to be American? DG: then what are you doing here?! I gave F1 the 'you shouldn’t have gone there, he’s only drunk' look Me: obviously lying I was born here DG: alert where? Damn it he caught me off guard Me: tewahagt so I just smiled F2 to the rescue F2: I was born in Colorado DG: but you don’t vote F2: I’m not registered F1: nosing in who wants to vote? He’s had it, so he gets up and starts chanting USA USA .. a third friend joins him and chants KUWAIT KUWAIT but not as loud .. I shut her up .. he leaves we crack up laughing like mad women and start talking in Arabic again .. he goes back to his friends who laugh at him too, he starts mocking us talking in Arabic totally not understanding a word we’re saying .. we laugh some more .. his friends too embarrassed of him take him out of the place .. we finish eating and go back to the café we wanted to go to all along… And that’s my first day of 3eed :>

Alfie...


An OKAY movie, it's actually a remake of Michael Caine's Alfie, anyways so the moral of this movie is don't break people's hearts because in the end you'll probably end up all by yourself... not worth watching unless you're a Jude Law die-hard fan it would then count as 100 minutes of bliss ;) note to self watch original Alfie...

Gym...

So at 5 am today I decided to check out the gym across the street from my apartment building .. So I get moving and as I get closer I notice something .. First the billboard light was off and as I get closer I realize it's not off it's not there anymore! WHAAT?! Okay so maybe they're getting a better one but as I get to the door I see it .. A notice saying that they moved to another location :/ how convenient .. Just when I decided to join, they move out! Oh well, I'll just have to stick with my building's gym ...
