I Am My Own Wardrobe Malfunction

Britney Spears isn't the only one who can't dress herself properly.

  • I put my belt on backwards. I was well into my twenties before I discovered that that most people put their belt on by going around the left hip first. The first time I had a belt with a logo on the buckle, I discovered that the logo would be upside down if I kept doing it my way.

  • I can't do up the buttons on a men's shirt if I am facing them. When I'm hanging my shirts up, I put them on the hanger and then turn the hanger around so that the buttons are facing away... in other words the same direction they face when you're actually putting a shirt on.

  • I don't understand how guys can rest their sunglasses on their forehead. When I put my sunglasses up, I have to wear them almost all the way up on the top of my head or they'll fall down. It doesn't seem to matter how tight the arms are, they will not stay on my forehead.

  • While we're on the subject, I also lose pairs of sunglasses constantly. I won't buy any that cost more than $20 because I know I'm either going to sit on them or leave them on the table at a restaurant.

Movie night: The Watchmen on IMAX

So last night I went with the fella and a few other friends to see The Watchmen, and I have to say I loved it! The movie completely lived up to the high standards set by the original comic book series. There was no cheesy acting, no silly cliched scenes, and the sound track was filled with an eclectic mix of of old songs that somehow worked perfectly together. We went to see it on the IMAX screen, which really was definitely the way it should be seen. Naturally, we had to sit through the cheesy IMAX pre-show, which was moderately cool the first time couple times I saw it back in 1985. You'd think that they'd notice that the audience jeers and mocks it now, but you'd be wrong. Oh well, it was worth it.

One thing that made the night extra fun was the girl sitting in the row in front of us. While we were chatting before the movie started, she kept turning around to agree vehemenently with all our opinions. It was random and fun, in an eavesdroppy sort of way.

If you haven't seen it already, you should go. Right now. One thing to note though: it's a very intricately woven and complicated storyline. I was really glad I'd read the comic serics beforehand; our friends that hadn't read it all said they found the movie a little hard to follow.
