Crazy Superstition

Today’s random Simpsons quote comes from Milhouse:

Remember the time he ate my goldfish? And you lied and said I never had a goldfish. Then why did I have the bowl Bart? Why did I have the bowl?

Terry, Mus, and I went to Playdium tonight. It was fun mostly. Some of the games were really stupid though. That’s okay, all and all it was good.

A Funny Story:

So at Playdium, I went to play Bust-A-Move (best game ever) but there was some blonde girl playing. So I figured we could play two-players. I ask her: "Mind if I jump in?" And what does she do? She squeels "Hey!!!!" and gives me this great big hug. "I haven’t seen you in sooo long!!" she whines. "Oh. Yah. Hey. How are you?" I reply. I am confused. I have no clue who this girl is. Do I know her? Who are you?  But I figure I’ll just play along, I didn’t have the heart to tell her she just jumped onto a stranger. "So who are you here with?" she asks. "Oh, you know, just some people," I reply. "Some Toronto friends that I don’t know, huh?" "Yah, that’s it. Just some Toronto friends." We beging to play. I try to divert attention away from me. "So how are you? What’s up?" I ask. "Nothing really," she replies. She wins the first game. "There must be something," I protest, there’s no way I’m letting the subject get back to me. "Well, my basement flooded today from the huge rain storm. But I hear you guys didn’t get much rain down here." Down here? What do you mean ‘down here’? Where is this girl from?  "Oh. Yah. Well. You know. I guess not. So your basement actually flooded? Wow, that’s crazy." "Yah, I know. It came down really hard back home. So how are things with you?" "Oh you know, things are things. Same old." She wins the next two games. Damn, she’s good. "What about you, what’s new in your life?" I ask. "Really nothing, I’m starting school in September." Yes! School! A subject I’m comfortable with. "Oh that’s good. What school are you going to?" She looks at me in disbelief. "I already told you that." Oh no, she’s on to me! "You did? When?" I asked trying to remain calm with my best poker-face. "Long time ago." "How long ago?" "I dunno." "Oh, well I forgot. Sorry. Where are you going?" Phew "Sarasota." Sara-what? Isn’t that in Florida? Is this girl American or something? That can’t be right. I must’ve heard wrong. Let’s leave that to be. "So when are you going to come back to Cambridge to visit?" she asks. Cambridge? Isn’t that in Massachusetts or something? I guess she is American. So does that mean I’m suppose to be American too? Uh oh. "Umm. I don’t know. Not for a while I don’t think. I don’t have the money to go all the way to Cambridge," I say, cleverly inserting ‘Cambridge’ into the sentence to further my disguise. "What are you talking about? What do you need money for, it’s only a two hour drive." Two hour drive to Massachusetts? Something’s wrong here. OHHHH! She means Cambridge, Ontario!!! Okay okay, think Sina, think. How can you get out of this one… "Yah I know, but I can’t afford to miss a day of work." Sina, you’re a genius. "So just come down for a day or a weekend." DAMMIT! "I work six days a week." Good. "Oh, well I guess it’s tough for you then." Exactly, now let’s forget about me visiting you in Cambridge and let’s figure out how I’m going to get out of here before you realize I’m not the guy you think I am. "Alright, well it was nice playing and talking to you…" What’s her name? "but I have to get back to my friends, they’re waiting for me at the batting cages." I look at the time and around the building to make it seem as if I’m actually suppose to meet them somewhere. "I’ll talk to you soon, and maybe I’ll be able to come and visit." "Alright, have fun!"

True story….happened to a friend of a friend of mine. But rest assured, the next time some stranger jumps on me and gives me a big hug thinking I’m someone else, I’ll be sure to tell them RIGHT AWAY that they have the wrong person.

Today’s random Simpsons quote comes from Homer:

Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn’t, it’s that girls should stick to girls sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such.
