I watched the director’s commentary of “Garden State” yesterday afternoon, and then watched “Shaun of the Dead” last night. I recommend them both. “Shaun of the Dead” is a real horror movie, while at the same time is a comedy. Plus it’s Bri’ish, so that makes it worth it, all by itself. I forgot to put them in the mail this morning, though, so it’ll be another day before I get some more flix. I got my tix for the Hibbs wedding at the end of May. Apparently it’s going to cost me an extra $70 to turn the car in at 1pm instead of 9am. I suppose that I should have planned that better before I picked up the plane tickets… oh well, better luck next time. I guess I’ll put that off, too, as I doubt that their prices are as linked to time out at the time of reservation as plane tickets are.

I got my stereo setup to my computer, so now I’ve been listening to mp3s on the stereo instead of on headphones.

A little clarification on the subject of having to not tell some people that you love them. As most of you know, I don’t have any actual gf experience. I wasn’t speaking exactly to the spousal types of relationships, but perhaps more generally. Maybe everybody got caught up in my use of the word relationship, when perhaps the word friendship might have conveyed a little better exactly what I was trying to convey. I stand by my assertions. And I don’t deny that it’s probably a good thing to tell your significant other that you love them… I guess… But if you are doing it just to hear them say it, even when they don’t really want to, is that really what you want? For them to tell you exactly what you want to hear? Or should it be heart-felt? I’d prefer the latter. Somehow I doubt that I’m going to win this discussion…

Enough for now. On to some West Wing.

    i understood the first time what that you weren’t talking about spousal relationships. i think that i understand what you mean. it’s hard to leave the people you love and care about. i think that i at least understand that you care for me (and the feeling is mutual) when you don’t say it in words. when you help me on a project and we stay on the phone for 3 hours when it’s not really necessary.
    i know what you mean when you say words can sound superficial or empty. and it may be that they don’t always, but actions speak louder than words?

    that seems kinda emasculating to me, but.. oh well. i blame it on it being 3am.
    i’ll cut it short:

    miss ya, big guy. [echo]
