Well, it’s Saturday night here, and I’m readying a wonderful selection of yummy snacks for a Movie Night at home. But not just any Movie Night…..
A couple of the other girls from work insisted we had to get together and watch movies again. Given that my tastes in film tend to scare them….. I should have realized something was up. Foolish lil’ me, I just figured they were willing to put up with a couple of my Asian comedies and maybe something they brought along if they weren’t enjoying my picks. After all… I do make some tasty Satay and canapes to nibble on when we do this sort of thing. But no…. seems there was a cunning plan afoot.
My best friend at work, Samantha spilled the beans as I was leaving the restaurant this afternoon. Seems the girls are setting me up with a guy they met out at a party last week.
“He’s perfect for you….” (As if I haven’t heard THAT one before….) “No….no, really. He knows all about that “Bride With White Hair” movie you like. He says he’s waaay into Kung Fu movies too. So we told him you have like the biggest pile of those movies and he would really have lots in common with you…..Ooohh! And he likes Cats!!”
Sigh…. Just what I need… a “Blind Date”….. (Am I really such a pathetic homebody?) They sound like my Mom. Except that he’s not Asian. So… apparently Samantha’s going to bring her boyfriend and the new guy is coming along and we’re all gonna “hang out” and watch my subbed version of “Chocolate”….since they say he hasn’t seen it yet.
Anyway, I appreciated the warning, last minute though it was. At least I wont be in my PJ’s when they arrive now. Also… I just got some other stuff in the Mail today, so I’ll add “The Deserted Inn” and “Hansel & Gretel” to the pile to watch. That way I’ll at least get a review outta this for you all, hopefully within the next day or so.
