surprising myself now

Sorry for not posting the last few days. I've been kinda busy working on a short story for a writing contest. I had some sort of epiphany, and decided that I had to enter the contest, and started writing. So I've been lost in a sea of papers and books, writing all day. Many times I've been urged by friends to enter this sort of competition, but I've really never believed that I have some sort of talent for this. But who knows, as American Beauty taught me: It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself.

first date: round one

First dates aren't usually remembered for how well they went. But at some point you have to have a first to get a second.
So I decided to get it over with, and take my fate girl to a movie. Things started the wrong way, when halfway to her home, and already a little late, I realized I was driving without my driver's license. So i had to go back, find it, and start all over again. We got to the movie about 15 minutes late, and as I went to buy tickets, she went to buy something to drink. She returned with a large Coke, and I returned empty handed, because the movie was sold out. I apologized again for being late, and now for having left us without movie tickets, but she said she didn't mind. So we sat down at a really small table, and talked for a long time. Things seemed to be going pretty well, until I decided I had to go to the bathroom. I tried to stand up, and while doing that, I hit the large Coke, and spilled every drop of what was left in it, on her brand new white pants. I forgot about my bathroom needs, and decided to take her home and end the suffering quickly. All the way to her house, she just stared at her new pants. I felt terrible. And we didn't speak. I parked in front of her house, and couldn't speak, so she finally did:
Girl: I should probably go change.
Me: Wait. I'm just so sorry. I'll understand if you don't want to go out with me again. But please believe me, this is the worst I can get.
Suddenly, she kissed me.
Girl: Don't worry. I'm sure next time we'll do better.
She got out of the car, and I started the drive back home. I drove, lost in the smell of her perfume and Coke. I had survived round one, and could hardly wait for the second one to begin.

Stupid Gadget of the Week #2

And now back to our regular stuff.
I admit proudly that I would love this stupid gadget. Could it be any cooler? Not at all. It's The Simpsons Talking Beer Opener.
Homer actually speaks while you open a beer. Words fail me trying to describe such a gift to humankind. I need it. Now.
