Have you seen the movie "28 Days Later" yet? If you like scary movies, you absolutely should. It was scariest because it was plausible, you know? I mean, not so much the naked-lurching-zombie aspect of it, but the epidemic. And very interesting how, at the end, it really didn't matter who was infected and who wasn't, because humans are (per the movie's premise) intrinsically violent and self-destructive anyway. They only had the VHS of the movie at Blockbuster, having run out of the DVDs, so we didn't get to see the alternate endings. That would have been interesting, I think. Though I was too creeped out to be able to tolerate anything but the hopeful ending depicted in the original release, I thought it was a little implausible. More likely that the U.S. Would just drop a bomb on the whole area and be done with it. (It's what we like to do.)
Also, "Joe Millionaire." I know no one has been watching this show but me (as is reflected in the ratings: one out of eight million households tuning in!) but humor me for a second and pretend you know what I'm talking about. First of all, I can't believe the whole Linda thing. Asking to go home because the other women were jealous? Girlfriend, please. Get a spine! And is it possible that she's never had to deal with cattiness before? She's a model, for chrissake. Don't understand. I know David (the "Joe" of Joe Millionaire) is an idiot, but he's kind of growing on me, what with his Southern courtliness and "yes ma'am" and "no sir." Plus he cried when he voted Linda and Alessia off! Little chicken-fried cowboy tears! How cute is that? (I don't think he cried about voting Lina off, though. What a bitch.) Alessia I originally thought was freaky and annoying, but she really grew on me. I think that to laugh and have fun with everything is the only sane way to cope with being on a show like "Joe Millionaire". Sharpening your claws and threatening to kill the competition to win the affections of a guy you met two seconds ago...not so sane.
