Movie Monday: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

My brother Lunchbox and I always talk about movies. It’s pretty much the only thing we talk about. Besides Percy Q. Poodle.

Thoughtsy: How’s the West Coast?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: How’s the fiance?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: How’s Percy?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: Seen any good movies lately?

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

Lunchbox: Did you see Perks of Being a Wallflower? We had dinner with the Chboskys.

Thoughtsy: …

Lunchbox: The writer and director of the movie.

Thoughtsy: Did you just name drop?

I’d been saving my write up of the movie for a special occasion, and I’m pretty sure that conversation counts. Mark this as the day that I began my journey towards linking myself to Kevin Bacon through 6 degrees.

Here’s what I learned from the movie:

  • Have a living room dance routine prepared for homecoming.
  • At parties, don’t eat the brownies.
  • If you do eat the brownies, you’ll crave milkshakes.
  • Always let the guy pick the makeout music.

Most importantly, I learned that we accept the love we think we deserve.


Am I Diverse or Fickle?

I am a slacker. Some awards were bestowed upon me, and I haven’t passed them along to others. But Thy and Misty gave me the swift kick in the booty that I needed.

They gave me this:

But with great power comes great responsibility. Here are my responsibilities:

  • Post a link to blogger who gave you the award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself that are not widely known.
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers.

Let’s start with Thy and why she’s awesome.

  • She laughs in the face of her chocolate allergy.
  • She’s a good mom. How do I know? Her kids send me thank you notes.
  • She remembers Pete.

Now let’s talk about why Misty is awesome.

  • She went to the Renaissance Festival with me when no one else would go. ::pouty-face::
  • She has mad weekly whacked camera skillzs. (I tried to be cool and use the Z, but it just didn’t feel right.)
  • She can use the term “Lawyered!” and it’ll actually be true.

Moving on to the nominees…

And now the 7 things about myself that are not widely known.

  1. I’m allergic to cats, but I still have one.
  2. I say “dude” when I drink.
  3. I’m still depressed that I can’t have any more Borders Cocoa Trios.
  4. I don’t like carbonated drinks.
  5. I got back together with Kiefer.
  6. I ate frozen yogurt 4 times last week.
  7. I could have toured (running lights, not singing) for the 3 Irish Tenors in college, but I chose school.

You know what? Streeeeeeetch. I’m kinda tired of writing. Are you kinda tired of reading? Yaaaaawn.
