Last night, Danielle and I had a long overdue hangout session, where I was also able to fulfill my longtime craving for Topperstix (actually, Tacostix) and other fried foods.
As you can see, we took down (well, I had a couple leftover today) a triple order of the stix, and an “appetizer sampler” from Pizza Shuttle, as well as some wine. We forgot to eat the Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream that we ordered, which means I will be going back over there soon - This is great news to me!
We watched two movies I had (sorta) never seen - Garden State and The Usual Suspects.
I really enjoyed Garden State, which somewhat surprised me, because I find Zach Braff pretty annoying on Scrubs (which I find pretty annoying as a whole). I was impressed by the realism… By the fact that I loved and hated both Zach Braff’s and Natalie Portman’s characters, and the fact that they weren’t heroic, perfect people living heroic, perfect lives. It also made me want to look more closely into Braff’s background, because I feel like the story is really creative, unless there is realism somewhere in it. I want to know more!
As for The Usual Suspects, here’s my story. My freshman year of college, I had a roommate I wasn’t too fond of. I came home one day and she and a friend were watching The Usual Suspects, and were almost done. They had both seen it, and knew I hadn’t.
You know that part at the end, where you’re like “HOLY CRAP!” and it all comes together? That was the only part I had seen, until yesterday. I don’t want to go into too much detail, because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else like it was ruined for me, but I basically have been spending all the time since that day trying to forget the ending that I can’t believe they let me watch. They should’ve told me to wait outside for five minutes!!!
Clearly, I never forgot it, so I watched it yesterday, and it was a great movie, though I still feel as though I’ve been robbed.
Anyway, had a great night, and can’t wait to do it again!
