Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

Okay. Doing this right now while I'm thinking about it.

A lot of times I'll pass an hour or so at work reading customers_suck, and one thing I've noticed is that a LOT of people who post there will use the term "partner" when they refer to their significant other. What the fuck is that about? Look, it's really simple:

If you're a straight man who's dating a woman, you have a girlfriend.

If you're a straight woman who's dating a man, you have a boyfriend.

If you're a gay/bisexual man who's dating a man, you have a boyfriend.

If you're a gay/bisexual woman who's dating a woman, you have a girlfriend.

To paraphrase Garth Ennis, a partner is somebody who get's your back when you're kicking in the door of a crackhouse with a shotgun in your hand.

Self-Portrait 3

"In my day, ballplayers were for shit."

I've decided I want/need a quiet night tonight. I'm going to go home, decide what I want for dinner, take a long, hot shower, go get (or cook) dinner, and then spend the night cleaning my apartment while I watch/listen to movies. Go to sleep fairly early, and then get up tomorrow and spend the day in Birmingham.

Sounds relaxing, doesn't it? Yes, it does, which virtually guarantees that sometime between now and seven tonight, someone is going to call me, email me, or just show up on my doorstep wanting to go out and do something tonight. You watch.

I was thinking about maybe going to see Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life at some point, but the guy who runs CHUD hated it, and he and I have fairly similar tastes in movies. But, given that in the course of his review he referred to it as --

Tomb Raider: Fist to the Nuts of Life

Tomb Raider: The Cradle is Set Afire with Baby Charles Inside

Dammit, Why: The Cradle of Life

Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Face Hate

Tomb Raider: Worse than Creed

and, my own personal favorite,

Tomb Raider: There is No God

--I may have to go see it at some point just for the sheer hell of seeing something that bad.

In other news, I want Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I want it bad. I want it so bad I itch. It feels like I'm really hungry, but my belly is full and I'm well rested and content and all my other needs are sated. But still, something is missing. Something is not there that needs to be there. That something is this game.
