Wednesday and Thursday...

Let's see, on Wednesday, after watching a little television and surfing a bit on the web, I headed out to Glassboro, to A+ Comics, where I picked up the first Hawaiian Dick comic book series (three issues) complete, still for cover price.

I then stopped to eat (Arby's) and shopped at Tunes in Voorhees, NJ (a used CD store) and picked up: the Boys on the Side soundtrack, the first Edie Brickell/Bohemians album (both for only $2.99)...I had them both before, but on old dusty cassette tapes and in fact the Edie Brickell one had warped and stretched. I also picked up "Attention Please" by Caroline's Spine (a band I've had a number of .mp3s of, but hadn't yet purchased a CD of).

From there, it was onto the movie. The movie theatre, The Ritz, was in the lot as the record store. How convenient.

First, amongst the trailers was a GREAT trailer for Goodbye, Lenin. I can't wait to see this one. It looks pretty funny.

I was a little too late to see "The Girl With a Pearl Earring" (which I'll be seeing next week, then). So, I ended up seeing Triplets of Belleville, (the trailer is HERE). It was sweet and different. It was almost entirely mute (no dialogue). The dialogue that was in the film was almost entirely in French (sans subtitles), but it may as well have been performed by the teacher from Charlie Brown, since it just added atmosphere and didn't tell the story as much as the visuals did.
From the movie, I ended up at Bounce for karaoke and (gay) male bonding. I hung out with Geno, Josh, Joey, John-boy, Chris and Dustin. I sang four times: "I Will Survive" (Gloria Gaynor), "Something To Talk About" (Bonnie Raitt), "Town Without Pity" (Gene Pitney), and "You Can Sleep While I Drive" by Melissa Etheridge. I didn't drink much. I had a pair of Smirnoff Ices, a "pineapple upside-down cake" (a really fru-fru girly drink: grenadine, pineapple juice and Stoli Vanilla Vodka), and most of Chris' Key Lime Martini (yum...he couldn't finish it, but it was LOVELY).

Yesterday, I just worked. Paul and I did watch Phoebe's wedding on Friends...I'm SO going to ball my eyes out during the last episode.
