...but I went on a date with my sister in law to see the movie Due Date instead. Sorry.
But if it makes you feel any better the movie was so god damn fantastic. I have never laughed so hard in my life. Except for when I watched The Hangover the first time but I kind of feel like this one took it even further. If you don't go and see this movie your life will suck and I might not be your friend.
Anyways. The trip TO and FROM the theatre was fun. On the way there I had to stop at the ATM to get cash because you have to pay to park but you get your money back when you buy a ticket so I don't know why we're paying to park, but ANYWAYS. I'm at the ATM and this guy starts walking up to me so I'm like, "Listen, asshole- if you think you're getting my $5-because that's all I have in my account-you can have it but know I'll have your balls." And the guy was all, "Fuck you whore! I just wanted to see if you have a lighter." OK mister sketchy mcsketch. I totally saw him smoking when I pulled up, so he had a lighter. Anyways. He kept walking and my $5 wasn't even needed to park because they had no attendant. So my wasn't-really-but-could-have-been-potential-mugging wasn't even warranted.
The dumbest part is I totally forgot to tell Kate about that. But when I got to the theatre there was a HUGE line of people-like 50- buying tickets for Due Date, so instead of chancing it- I bought her ticket and mine and just waited for her.
After the movie, I had to walk across the parking lot to get to the van and I saw a bunch of weirdos standing in the darkest part of the lot pointing at people. Which I'm sorry, but for someone who is terrified of the dark anyways, doesn't help. So I ran like a girl and locked my doors. Then I tried texting my buddy Matt about the movie which was fun because I was so cold my kidneys were convulsing. I had to wait for awhile to get out obviously, which was ok. It's hard to drive when you're shaking really hard. You pretty much look like a drunk driver which I kind of want to avoid.
So once I get going I take a shortcut to the bridge (because this was in Duluth and I live in Superior- you cross over one of two main bridges to get back and forth over the state line) on Railroad Street. Which is really dark, full of railroad tracks and it's basically factories you're driving by. So once I get down there and take the ramp to get to Wisconsin, I see a bunch of deer. Not strange since they hang out by the roads like fucking idiots but you know- I just haven't seen one by an on ramp. I've see fox and wolves, but never deer. Anyways. So I'm driving up the ramp, doing 55 and once I get on the bridge, I get into the left lane so I can do my 70 mph in a 55 and out of NOWHERE on the middle of the bridge I see a fucking deer galloping. On the bridge. No grass around- it's a fucking bridge above Lake Superior. It's galloping in the right lane so I slow down thinking I'm going to freak it out and it'll try to turn and then I'll hit it and maybe die. No- the fucking deer looks at me like, " Sup, bitch?" and continues galloping. I honk, nothing. Looks at me like I'm the jackass. So I basically floor it and from behind me I hear brakes squealing, horns blaring, etc because of the deer. I'm sure there is now a dead deer on the bridge but I'm not about to go back and check it out. But it scared the shit out of me. I've never seen a deer on the bridge.
Ok- so I get back into Superior and it's no big deal...my blood pressure has gone back to normal and I'm warming up now that the heat has kicked in. I'm driving down Tower, which is one of the main drags in town, and when I get into South Superior I see a crowd of maybe 20 drunks playing in the road. Honestly- it would have been fun to play chicken with them but I had to turn to my house before I seen them. But as I pulled in front of my house I could hear horns blaring. I haven't heard sirens so nobody is dead. I think.
But I'm home now and I'm tired. I have a birthday party for my friend's son tomorrow and I'm going to help set up and clean up. I need to get started on cleaning my house in the morning so I need to get some sleep. I finished a GREAT book last night so I'm going to do some book reviews for you tomorrow so I can put these books back on the shelf since I stack 'em on my desk until I review them. :)
Ta ta to your tata's lambwhores!
