independence day

It's A Battle. In Los Angeles.

First, I have the best news. One of my best friends in the whole wide world, since I was like 19, that I love so much...he's getting married! He just called me this week to tell me. I am so excited. See, he has been with his guy for a decade, but same-sex marriage is not legal in South Carolina. Even though they have lived together for almost nine years. They designed and built their house together. I always told him, "You live with someone in the house you built together - I'm just going to start calling him your husband."

But now they can be husbands for real. They kept saying as soon as SC allowed them to be married...but now the boyfriend asked him if he just wanted to screw that and run off to Vermont - (the only state that allows gay marriage and out-of-state-residents to be married) and so...they are! This summer.

I really want to go but I can't go alone and The Sister has no vacation days since she just started this job and used all the ones she did have for days when the roads were too horrendous to drive on. I am still thinking on it though - there must be a way for me to get there. I'm so retardedly happy about this.

Now other things - who is excited for "Battle: Los Angeles"?! Come on, peoples - did you see all the shit that is going to blow up in this movie?! We are going tonight! Opening night! I have been waiting for this movie for months! I can't expect it to be "Independence Day" or anything - (for one thing, it is lacking in President Pullman) - because ID was just the best crazy alien movie ever - but still, it looks awesome. Aaron Eckhart came out as saying that it is just 20,000 rounds of ammo and dirt and dust and explosions throughout the whole thing.

I am excite!

As long as it isn't "2012". I didn't hate "2012" as much as some people, but it was a lot of talky and plotty and I just wanted more shit to blow up. I want 10 minutes of talky, 130 minutes of explosions, and then 5 minutes of swelling music with a music video-esque ending.


In RL things - Yesterday, I felt like crap. On Tuesday, I was exhausted and felt like I couldn't breathe right. I figured - chest cold. I woke up on Wednesday in a very awkward position and my back was killing me all day. I turned on the computer but I could barely sit up or keep my eyes open. Every time I tried to take a breath, there was a knife stabbing pain in my side. My whole body hurt. I went to bed at 9pm. I must have been running a fever too, because I woke up all sweaty gross. I feel better today, but still anytime I try to take a deep breath, there is a stabbing pain again. I literally laid in bed/couch and watch tv and slept for 40 hours straight.

This, however, will not stop me from going to Battle. In Los Angeles!
