Call me crazy, but I'm having a hard time remembering what I did yesterday. And I haven't even been drinking! I did take a NyQuil dosage (in gel-cap form) before I went to bed last night, so maybe that might explain things, but still....

No, I just made a run for Subway for my mom and myself. I looked in my purse for my cellphone and I had a missed call from last night at 8:19. I checked it and it was Kevin, of course. He sounded kind of urgent, and now I feel bad because I missed that call because...you know, what if it was important?

I called him back today and left a message, saying I was sorry I missed the call, I didn't hear the phone go off (because it's true). Then I started to think of what I did yesterday to miss the call....and I was having the hardest time trying to remember what I did! I know I talked to him yesterday; he was the one who told me the BP-Amoco refinery would probably go on strike because of the right-to-work bill and gas prices would be expected to skyrocket, so "go fuel up your gas tank now." Which I did. My gas marker is at F right now. So I was wondering if this message was the one I got when he called last night, and I was trying to place when I went for my gas run. Hunter says it was probably around 6:30 or 7 when he got home from work, which sounds about right. Then I tried to remember what else I did, if I watched any TV shows, because I wasn't online last night. Yes, I did. I watched "Dance Moms" with Mom. Then I watched some "American Dad" and "Family Guy." (I saw the tail end of the "Not Particularly Desperate Housewives" ep and the whole one of "Rough Trade." Then I remember falling asleep during the "E Peterbus Unum" ep.)

If he called at 8:19, I certainly didn't hear my phone go off. My phone's been doing that a lot lately. I need a new cellphone. Ugh.

I guess I'm not going crazy if I can remember what I did last night, despite being under the influence of the "Q".

....Yeah, this was a post full of me babbling and wondering if I'm going crazy. *sigh*

Tell me if this makes sense to you. You have a wedding one day, and the actual reception the next day. No real reason why, either.

Hunter's BFF Bobby (from our trip down to Alabama for Grandma Cozie's funeral) got married yesterday, and today (tonight, rather) is the reception. Hunter was a best man. Not THE best man, A best man. There were two best men. Go figure that one out. Only because I think Bobby needed a backup for his other one that wasn't Hunter.

But man....so much ridiculousness and drama from this clusterfuck of wedding planning. And just from the groom's side! Bobby kept flaking out on keeping Hunter (and the other groomsmen) informed on what was going on. The bride's family is a bunch of uptight religious nuts (she was homeschooled until her junior year of high school, apparently), and Hunter just flat out does not like her dad. Her dad kept making smart-assy remarks about how Hunter might be gay just because he opted for purple shoelaces for his wedding shoes (more about that later) and his bleached-out blonde hair. They wanted to have only close family and friends at the actual wedding, yet we weren't invited, and we've been like a second family to Bobby for ages. But we're invited to the reception. But I couldn't bring Kevin as a guest because they couldn't squeeze in an extra place for him. (GAAAAAAH.)

Okay....about the shoes? Bobby wanted his side of the party to wear customized Converse All-Stars high-tops. They're white with green blocking and tounges and "WAF 4 Life" on the side (some childhood inside joke with their group). Hunter opted for purple shoelaces with his instead of white or whatever everyone else was wearing. (And the colors actually look good together.) And Hunter's hair is STILL bleached out from when he and the gang went to go see Motley Crue a month ago (it's grown out a bit). Point is, Hunter's not gay, but he DOES like to do crazy shit like this every once in a while to stand out.

Oh, I could go on and on about the drama involved in all of this. Mom and I think Bobby and Leah could've hired a wedding planner and had some better organization and communication with their respective parties doing this. And we all think Bobby marrying Leah is a giant mistake, and he only proposed to her to get over his last (batshit crazy) girlfriend. Hunter says the two of them have NOTHING in common. After the rehearsal dinner, apparently Bobby pulled Hunter to the side and told him, "Okay, this is the part where you're supposed to talk me out of this." *sigh* If you're asking your best man to talk you out of this, then maaaaaaybe you shouldn't be getting married. Hunter told Bobby that if he backed out at that point, no one would shame him for it.

But whatever. They're married now. Reception's tonight. Open bar. AWRIIIIIGHT.

Tomorrow Kevin and I are going to Six Flags. We're excited. I'm SUPER excited. They opened a couple new slides at Hurricane Harbor (one being a pressurized slide that kind of BLASTS you down a few stories; I heard you have, like, NO contact with the slide for maybe 10 or 15 feet) plus a simulated surfing area. I kind of wish they had some new rollercoasters there, though. In my opinion, they can replace Iron Wolf.

According to Jim Ross on Twitter, that new CM Punk shirt is quickly becoming one of the fastest selling t-shirts in WWE history. I was kind of pissed when I saw CM Punk wearing it last week on RAW because I thought, "SHIT, now WWE will start selling them and the value of this baby will go down!" No, not really. The ones sold at Money in the Bank are the only ones that have the DATE on the back, so they're still worth something.

And I get so many compliments when I wear it! The true wrestling fans come out of the woodwork! Daniel (one of the carryouts at work) saw me wear it for dress-down day yesterday and didn't like it because HE's a John Cena fan. You know, the FAKE champion.

Once again, Hunter is thinking about breaking up with his girlfriend. I don't know how many times I've heard this in the last year (maybe four or five; he starts getting that itch every few months) and how he never follows through on it, though. And this may sound mean and very blunt, but if he's seriously going to do it, then he needs to shit or get off the pot. I'm not saying that because I don't like Jessica (I do, actually; she's a sweet girl). I'm saying this because Hunter's been kind of dancing along that line for the last year and talks about it, but he never does it. If he's going to do it, then do it and quit stringing her along.

And it's not like he doesn't love her anymore, but from what he told me last night about it, he feels that their respective priorities have changed. He wants to finish up school and do what he wants to do (hospitality management, I guess; he wants to run a hotel or work on a cruise ship or something...how he came to that, I have no clue, but he wants to do it, so I support him on it). And she just dropped out of school and wants to take classes to learn a trade and be a massage therapist. She was majoring in psychology and wanted to work with special needs kids, but to be honest, I think her current job working with special needs kids is starting to take its toll on her. Hunter's kind of ticked that she won't at least try to finish up and get her degree at the very least. But he also feels that she's pushing for them to get married and have a kid, and he's so not ready for that. He just turned 21, for crying out loud. He wants to live his life.

More behind the cut, because I'm just rambling and having a epiphany in the process. )

I keep telling myself I'm not going to spoil myself by clicking on concept art links for Tangled.

And yet, I do it anyway.

And now I'm even more excited for this movie. Just as excited as I was for Toy Story 3.

I can deal with the fact that it's CG, and I've accepted it at this point. I think the reason everyone keeps raging about it is because it's CG and not traditionally hand-drawn. It's going to have a different look and a different feel to it than all of the other fairy tales Disney animation has tackled. But you know what? Sometimes you have to take that risk. Would you really want to see a movie that was exactly the same as Beauty and the Beast or The Little Mermaid or Sleeping Beauty, and watch it and think, "Oh, this is the same thing as (insert Disney fairy tale movie here)!"? No!

I can deal with the fact that it doesn't follow the traditional Brothers' Grimm telling of the story of Rapunzel. Let's not forget--story development often has to take their own creative liberties just to make a story work for the big screen. All of the fairy tales they've done are drastically different from the original tellings.

I can even deal with the stupid re-branding of the title. I'll just grit my teeth and deal with that. They want to appeal to boys? Fine. It's a stupid move, but I'll deal with it.

But there are 107 days left until this movie comes out, and I. CAN'T. WAIT.


*later edited* Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled, but I'll just say this. Disney has not opened a movie like this since Sleeping Beauty. The Little Mermaid didn't get this, The Princess and the Frog didn't get this, and the closest we got with Beauty and the Beast was stained glass windows. I'm REALLY excited now.
