The Verdict

So I guess I shouldn't leave y'all (or, as my wife informed me, all y'all, which is the correct plural form of the singular y'all) hanging about the slippers post. Well, they arrived just fine, and wow, they sure are comfy. I basically wear them all the time when I'm at home, and it's like being in outer space for my feet. It's like there's a party on my feet and my slippers are invited. Wearing these slippers is like the tactile equivalent of an Amigos Meat Nachos.

We saw The Bourne Ultimatum tonight at the $2 theatre nearby, which is actually $1 on Tuesdays. Good movie, but I was kind of confused, partially at the plot in general, but also by the fact that Matt Damon is a decent action star. Weird.

Is it wrong to sneak candy into a movie theatre? Is it extra wrong to sneak candy into a $2 theatre? Is it even more extra wrong to sneak candy into a $2 theatre on $1 night? Why do hot dogs come in packages of ten and hot dog buns come in packages of eight? I suppose there are some things we were never meant to know, and in the meantime, I'll continue purchasing Gummi Worms in advance so as to enjoy them during the show. It may not be right, but it's such a tiny offense that I can still sleep at night. But perhaps it's so wrong that I shouldn't be able to sleep, and my heart has been hardened by years of candy-sneaking. *sigh*

Tom, if you're reading this, the movie you asked me about was either The Returner or Casshern. I own the former but not the latter. Note, however, that both movies cannot be in close proximity of each other, as such a confluence of awesomeness would be unsustainable in our current space-time continuum. I actually voided my computer's warranty just by watching those trailers.

Thats it!! Thats the movie! Thankyou so very much! I remember seeing that preview years ago on the imac and falling in love. Yet It got forgotten and for some reason it was brought back up a week ago and I knew it was amazing but I had no clue what the name of the movie was! I will go look for it tonight years and only seeing a preview dose not do it justice I must now find the movie!

Hey you should bring these slippers down with you when you come so I may try them for myself.

Excellent...but which was it: Casshern or The Returner? I actually showed the trailer for Casshern to a few other people, who also went nuts for it. :)

I will definitely bring my slippers down. And no, you may not keep them. Though you will certainly want to. :)

Very much Casshern.
