So, guys. I fulfilled one of my life-long dreams today.
It was a beautiful moment.
Something to write home about.
One to tell the grandchildren (that I am never under any circumstances going to have).
Yes, that's right.
I GOT TO DO MY VERY OWN ROCKFORD TURN.
I'm so happy. :')
And, if you don't know what a Rockford turn is (I FEEL SO SORRY FOR YOU), watch this:
You see what I'm saying? It was glorious. I may have been driving my beat up 1993 Subaru Impreza named Simon Templar and not Jim Rockford's '70s Firebird, but that does not make it any less glorious!
Another interesting development today is that my ginormous 550 DVD carrying case arrived in the mail. I'm taking all of my DVDs to college with me, I don't care. They are my children. Also, this thing is so large -- it's basically on rollers.
ANYWAY. Today, I am also thinking about Pacific Rim. And how I am definitely going to see it this weekend. Now, honestly, I hate robot movies and this does not look particularly inspired. BUT, HONESTLY, IT HAS IDRIS ELBA PLAYING A CHARACTER NAMED STACKER PENTECOST.
What. STACKER PENTECOST.
And, he's cancelling the apocalypse. So.
Finally, the most interesting development. Today, I was driving along (in the wrong direction, hence the glorious Rockford turn), and I suddenly realized -- I write on my blog in the exact same way that Laraine Newman played teenagers on SNL. I find this disconcerting, embarrassing, and secretly amazing.
Such a stereotype, and I don't care!
