JB is down in Coos Bay elk
hunting (NOT using the BAMT for some elk-truck derby like I somehow
implied previously, which caused him to get all huffy and grump
about how they don't use the truck to hunt, they use it
to scout, and blah blah blah elkcakes), so I have the
house to myself this weekend.
Since I was a single girl on
Friday night with my options for the evening's entertainment
spread richly before me, I spent the evening curled up on the
couch watching Army of Darkness. Then I totally kicked it up
a notch by cracking open an Amstel Light. Party!
I don't often give myself a
lot of credit - I mean, let's just say I'm extremely "modest"
as that lets us avoid delving into the issue of self esteem,
because ha ha, we don't want to go THERE (talk to the haa-aand!).
But every now and then I think, hey Sundry, I would totally date
Sundry, you're a chick who
watches Army of Darkness and says the line "Good
the guy with the gun" right along with Ash? I would
totally date you.
I always thought I was sort
of appealing, dating-wise, to a certain type of guy. A guy who
can quote the Simpsons all day long. Who maybe has a collection
of Fangoria issues filling up some boxes in his closet. Someone
who's seen about fifteen They Might Be Giants shows. Definitely
a Home Star Runner fan.
As it turns out, JB is not
that guy (well, he does think Trogdor is pretty funny). If I
say to him, "my cat's breath smells like cat food",
he'll just look at me weird. I read in his company newsletter
a while ago that Bruce Campbell had visited their campus, and
when I said "JB! Bruce Fucking Campbell came by your
office?", he was all "Who?".
JB is like devoid of any geek
culture whatsoever. He's never seen Star Wars, for instance.
He owns no comic books, has never seen a Troma flick, doesn't
know that "and wreck my car" is the part that comes
after "A come on (come on)".
Lucky for me, JB apparently
found me dateable for non-dorky-movie-quoting reasons. I love
JB for his sense of humor, intelligence, and who he is as a person,
and I like to think he feels the same way about me.
Still, sometimes I like to
just crush on myself a little so my "We just cut up our
girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound fine?" side
doesn't go unappreciated. You know how it is.

Listen, I am not a complete dick, it's not like I want Joe to die alone surrounded by cats or something. - 12.23.2004
