Guilty! Of Rudeness...

Sorry I've been so quiet. I've been summoned to jury duty where there is just SO much to report. It has to begin with the first hour when we were all sitting in the big jury pool room. I heard a clip, clip, clipping and thought, "No. That can't be what I think it is." Yes. Nail clipping.

BTW... jury duty is our civic duty. If we all had better things to do, the system really doesn't work or at least fulfill its intent. During the second phase, everyone lined up with their excuses and we waited about an hour for each to be heard by the judge and lawyers. Obviously some are absolutely valid but I can't imagine anyone finding it easy to put your life on hold. It is very rude to think that someone else can take on your responsibilities.

The Rude Chair Massage

I understand that one does not actually admit that they get the 10 minute massage in the nail salon. Well once in a while, I do. Certain criteria must be met though before I harness the chair:
1. My backside must not be facing a window
2. It isn't in a salon where someone I work with may roll in
3. I obviously need extra time to dry my nails (cooler weather = more chair massages)
4. My pants will not in any way fall down

So for the times when the above are all right, how does the chair massage go incredibly wrong? I mean, obviously I am not visiting trained massage therapists but can't a girl just get her back massaged in piece? This weekend I got my {rear} kicked by a lady who was about 80lbs and shall remain nameless (she may or may not go by the name Rose). She smacked me, she ripped my hair, she pinched my neck and, right before she let me go, she slapped my bottom. It was, hands down, the rudest $10 massage I've ever had.

Rosemary's Baby... the Comedy?

Last night M.B. and I went to see Rosemary's Baby at the Film Forum. Always an intense movie-going experience, we were expecting to watch Roman Polanski's classic with the recommended 'mature audience'. I had seen it before (one of my faves) however, M.B. was a first-timer.

Once the scary music started, the laughter began. A RUDE theater-goer apparently thought that every scene was hilarious. I agree that there are some funny scenes, but it isn't that funny. It really ruined the whole experience for anyone willing to get sucked into the film and freaked out by the pregnancy/birth of the son of satan! After the film ended, everyone turned to the loud chuckling goon. He replied with a smirk and a 'meow'. To which the British gentleman behind us retorted, "Oh I hope you choke and die." As I said, there is always an incident at this particular theater and it didn't disappoint. Sometimes the response is worse than the offense. Either way, Saturday night at the movies was less than polite.

Obama, Obama, Obama and Oprah's Date

Today marks the end of my "electionitis." I am cured! So much to celebrate. Last night's speach by President Obama was truly inspiring. It was the the first time I've felt proud to be an American. The lady will resume her travels abroad (without pretending to be Canadian!). That being said, I couldn't help but notice Oprah was leaning on a strange man. The camera kept showcasing lady O and her date. I unfortunately cannot find an image... Regardless, last night it was distracting! Since Oprah introduces American women to everything under the sun, it was rude for her to show up in such a public forum with an unidentified man.
