what scary dreams are made of

I went to California this past weekend to visit some friends and while there I went to a Pirates Dinner Adventure show. It was explained to me that the show was like Medieval Times but way more entertaining. And how it was.

The basic plot line included a busty princess and a "magical golden gypsy" (a.k.a. a scantily clad acrobat) being kidnapped by Captain Sebastian the Black's crew. As luck would have it, Sebastian's son, Benjamin the Blue, falls in love with the princess and has to fight with the five other crewmen (each dressed in a color of the rainbow) to win the heart of his lady. I was assigned to be on Jack the Red's cheering team, who was the oldest and roughest looking of the six but still had a defined six pack and won the position of first mate. Jack looked the role of a pirate, whereas poor Benjamin just lost his job as a Power Ranger.

My Review:
The pirates shirts are ripped/taken/fall off and the audience is left starting at six beyond buff men performing song and dance on a makeshift pirate boat.

where i get my wandering mind

i was talking on my phone tonight with my mom and after hanging up i realized that the conversation followed a rather off-the-wall path. Topics included normal things like my day/work/school, and then violently veered toward: her finding me the perfect man (who happens to be 10 years older, "but Jackie he has is house paid off"), how when people age they start to smell, how i don't smell (thanks for the compliment mom), to how much dresses cost at the Rose Parade, how my mom plans on buying me one, to how she got trapped in an elevator and started to scream so loud the fire department was called, to circumcision, to vomiting, etc. Please note I did not bring up a single topic.

where on earth does this come from

i am the worst person ever

While driving to work today a lady pissed me off by slamming on her brakes at a light that wasn't red. I was so livid that I not only flicked her off while waiting at the light, but also as I drove by her once we got through the light. As I walk into my work, I see the driver and her boyfriend/husband walking towards the building. For all I know she was visiting her baby in the NICU or dying mother on the floor.

I felt so guilty that I am making myself do 10 hail mary's and 12 of the lord's prayer.

I am having a Halloween party (everyone is invited and it'll be grrreat) on the 31st and I need some good suggestions for games. We already have a huge wall with projector for watching the classic Pyscho, and bobbing for apples and doughnut games in the basement, plus white chocolate popcorn (Kristi I need the recipe) and a ghost pinata. But I need a good idea for games for a large group of people.
