Worst. Post. Ever.

Last night, we went to see WarGames at the movie theater. Yes, WarGames came out 25 years ago. Yes, movies are hella expensive. Yes, I just said hella. But WarGames is a movie of awesomely 80s goodness and it was Thursday night and The Office is in reruns, so what else is there to do? Nothing, that's what.

There were approximately 10 other people in the theater with us. We were all enjoying the movie when, about three-fourths of the way through it, BOOM the screen went black. Everyone just sat there for a while and I was all, "I don't think this is part of the movie," because stating the obvious is what I do. A couple of minutes later, the lights came back on. Ruh-roh, we thought, and ruh-roh was right. The movie was being projected through space or something by a satellite and the satellite feed was interrupted because space pirates blew up the satellite. This is what I'm assuming happened, anyway. They were trying to fix it, but in the meantime, if you didn't want to wait, you could get a refund. So we got a refund. Which meant we saw three-fourths of WarGames in the theater for free. Win win win! Mostly.

Today has already lasted approximately 95 hours. I counted each one, so I know it's true. And now, for no particular reason, allow me to tell you what I have in my purse right now:
  • wallet
  • chapstick
  • three tubes of lip gloss
  • a Flex Spending check
  • cell phone
  • 2 barrettes (red and blue)
  • a granola bar
  • gum
  • a tiny notebook with drawings from Philly in it
  • lotion
  • three pens
  • The Virgin Suicides (10 more pages to read at lunch!)
  • Lord of the Flies (to start at lunch when I finish The Virgin Suicides)

Wasn't that exciting? I know. It was. You're wondering if your life will ever be the same now that you know what's in my purse. No. No, it won't be the same. I hope that eases your mind.

I'm bored, Internets. Entertain me, please. Or at least give me something better to write about than the contents of my purse.

You could write about the condiments in your purse? Unless you feel you already did that with the lotion and all.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

This may be a stupid question, but I feel that it needs to be asked, nevertheless:

How much lip gloss does one woman really need in a given day? Surely not three tubes. That seems like a lot of lip gloss. And do one's lips really need glossed, anyhow?

Peefer, once I had salsa in my purse, does that count?

Sir, I don't need three pens, either. My purse collects stuff. Also, I never really use the lip gloss, either.

I had an apple behind my computer that eventually shrunk to the size of a plum. I still have it. Because it's neat.

[oh boy]

There was an Overheard in New York recently about a woman turning down a receipt at CVS because they make babies in her purse, and I laughed, because HO BOY, do receipts ever reproduce in my bag. I swear I couldn't possibly buy that much stuff.

I've only been in the movie theater once when that happened, in the '90s during Clueless. We were only about 20 minutes from the end. They gave us vouchers for another day. Luckily, Clueless is awesome, so I didn't mind sitting through it again.

bahahaha receipts make babies. That's the best thing because it's true.

In high school, my computer science teacher played WarGames for us for two days, and I was absent the day we finished it, so she had to lend me the movie (which was on VHS and recorded off her TV, mind you) just so I could find out that the computer figures out how to play tic-tac-toe. Or something like that.

But I'd totally see that in the movie theater.

I have four chapsticks in my purse; it's not just you.

What'd you think of Virgin Suicides?

Crap, I hate when I accidentally double post.

Jeff said...

I too saw WarGames last night. Great flick. Check out my blog for my experience.

You have that much stuff in your purse? What are you, a bag lady?

(Also, I have like four chapsticks. But still.)

Guys can't carry that much in our wallets. I mostly have receipts and Blood type cards from when I donated ages ago. Oh, and credit cards. Many credit cards...
