"How about famous Jewish sports legends?"  
Today, Ryan managed to drag me to the gym (after a couple weeks of being a total lazy ass and not going). I noticed a rather hot, blonde guy, so I smiled in that ridiculously awkward way I do when I see someone cute, and he smiled back. We continued this coy smiling back and for through several sets until we both sorta moved in each other's direction to say, "Hi."

Ghey GayersonIn case I've not mentioned it lately, I'm horrible at flirting. Seriously, the 49ers have more game than I do. (okay, okay, okay... I looked that up.) Anyway, I got his digits, and hopefully I'll call him and live out the disaster rather than just play it out in my head numerous times before deciding not to call.

After our workout session, Ryan and I went for pedicures. Sure, laugh if you want, but it's flip flop season, and it would have been unfair to unleash my unkempt extremities on small children. Yes, I did it for the kids. Okay, well, maybe the $5 salt massage treatment was for me.

After this nirvana, however, we went to the Sunset 5 for a movie. We just finished watching Gregg Araki's new film, Mysterious Skin. It should come as no surprise that it was disturbing (and contained an alien subplot). However, while Nowhere was Tom-Cruise disturbing, Mysterious Skin was Mel-Gibson-playing-the-role-of-Michael-Jackson's-love-child disturbing.

Seriously. I still feel anxious (and we got out of the film a couple hours ago). I'm not sure how to shake the images, so I think I am just going to try watching something light. If anyone needs me, I'll be sitting fetal in front of the TV, watching the Cartoon Network, rocking back and forth for a little while. Just, disregard the mumbling, and no sudden noises, please.
Mood: anxious

yeah, I liked the film. I'd definitely say it's a good movie, but damn! Everyone seemed to have the same look on his face when he left the theater. It was just a look of "whoa!" I totally know what you mean about needing to go home. It's exactly how I felt.

I held my napkin in front of my face through parts of the movie. I don't know if I can sit through seeing it again though!

Yeah I saw the movie alone. I felt kind of dirty, sitting there by myself.

I can't wait to see it again...I suppose it's for the same reason people go on rollercoasters. Haha. I will have to find someone to drag along this time, though...because I don't want to be the perv who sees this movie by himself twice.

heh interesting. i was anxious to see his new film in any case, but now especially. sounds like he's really honed and focused his "voice" as the review in the NYTimes said a few weeks ago, comparing his new "maturity" with that of Pedro Almodovar....

Mysterious Skin did remind me a bit of Almodovar's Bad Education, for obvious reasons...though there are some distinct differences. I haven't seen Araki's other movies, because everyone says they were terrible...but it'll be interesting to see what he does next.
