Kindred spirits

Last night I was meeting the Boy for a movie and since I went right after work, I was very early. So I went to Starbucks. I was sitting down outside and I thought: I have forty minutes to spend with a coffee, an oat bar, and my brain. It made me smile. Really, the only thing that would have made that better was a pint of stout instead of coffee.

I'm not, I think, anti-social, but for the most part, my favourite person to hang out with is me. I go out alone a lot. I go out to read, to think. I'd rather see a movie by myself than with someone else. My best friend is my own brain, I guess.

It's a good thing we usually get along.

The movie was The Incredibles and while the Boy enjoyed it a lot, I have to report that, aside from Edna, I found it quite tedious. I haven't quite figured out why. I think everyone I know who has seen it has loved it. But I found the characters uninteresting and unsympathetic. And they were just too weirdly shaped -- it was hard to look at them. The humour seemed too broad -- not much sharp wit. I had expected to enjoy it, so it was disappointing not to.

The Star Wars trailer made my heart go pitter-pat. I get so angry at George for making me feel that way again. You don't have the right to do that anymore!

But my brain and I had a good time over coffee so I guess I shouldn't complain.
