Yes, yes I know. It's feast or famine with me.
Two in one night is a little much, but I'm busting so I gotta tell you (though if you've been paying attention then I probably don't have to tell you) about the infinite parallels between the movie we just saw and my work/life over (almost exactly) the last eight months. I mean, it's un-effin-canny. Definitely not enough screaming in the movie, nowhere near. Screaming and head spinning. "Face melting" was dead on; overall, it was a darn good imitation. In the movie, they even called her Dragon lady! *gasp* I'll have to be adding that to the list of names that I thought I so cleverly created only to later find out is used by 98% of the population. Right after "Bear", "Davy Wavy", and "JakeGetTheFuckOffOfThere".
We just got back from our movie date and I'm still rather tweaked. If it weren't 1am, I'd be on the phone with Niki and Dale demanding that they throw on some slippers and catch another viewing with me. I pretty much imagined them there with me the entire time anyway. Especially when the movie version of the "Dragon" bosslady tears apart the starry-eyed new worker bee, destroying her confidence for shits and giggles, -- everyone in attendance at the Bethesda Regal laughed out loud. I was the only one not laughing. In fact, I was thisclose to standing up and yelling "Why is this funny?? THAT IS NOT FUNNY!".
But they wouldn't understand. And not just because most of them were 16 year old non-English-speaking European's visiting on summer visas to work at day camps. They think this is an exaggerated character that does not actually exist in real life. Because in real life, people aren't treated that way in a professional environment, right?
HA, I say!
