August 2nd, 2003

I’ve had this $40 Borders gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket for over a month now, and finally got around to placing an order on their website yesterday. For whatever reason, items on Borders.com are approx. $3-$5 cheaper than they are in the brick and mortar store. Really dumb, but whatever.

So guess what I ordered? I got two dvds – Desperately Seeking Susan and Foxfire. If you haven’t seen the latter, and you like Angelina Jolie, I highly recommend it. There’s a bit of nudity in it for you guys. After ordering the former, I really wanted to order Who’s That Girl, but it’s not available on dvd yet. Damn, I really liked that movie when I was younger.

I also ordered a book – The Odd Todd Handbook: Hard Times, Soft Couch. I’ve always got a kick out of all his flash movies (got every single one on my hard drive), so I thought the book might give me at least a dozen laughs.

Speaking of books, I’m currently reading Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About. This is the second time I’ve just grabbed any old book off the library shelf of new fiction and came home with an entertaining story set in England. You know, I think I may start using British terms to explain things because I really like them for some reason. I love how they call an argument a row, or an apartment a flat. I also find it amusing, as well as impressive, how when I’m watching a police chase show featuring British cops, they are always so calm and matter of fact. And those accents. Well don’t get me started, but I think anyone with a British accent sounds about 50 times smarter than an American even if they aren’t. I know, I’m weird. Or perhaps a wanker? ;)
