I was at a friend's house a while ago for a little gathering and at some point in the evening he removed a video from his VCR. Upon noting the title I exlaimed, "You huge loser! Do you own Underworld?"
He said, "Yes, yes I do."
Later this friend reveled to me that the film was actually a porn by the same title, because he didn't want me to think that he owned the feature film, Underworld.
Which brings me to my Thought of the Day:
I do not like boring people. I spend all day juggling data and writing dry email responses to morons. When I hang out with someone I need them to bring a little interesting to my life.
My friends that are not friends of obligation all have something about them that is interesting.
I don't especially value 'niceness.' Being a nice guy is not good enough. But if you are a nice guy who can quote extensively from Chaucer or Futurama, I am a happy girl.
I think that the above story illustrates my friend's understanding of my personality perfectly. I really would be less ashamed of him owning third rate pornography than owning the poorly done vampire/werewolf crap-fest that is Underworld.
