So, someone bristled at the fact that I called Oz the Great and Powerful was a piece of shit despite the fact that I haven’t seen it yet. I know, I shouldn’t judge the movie without seeing it, but it’s one of those where you just look at the trailer and say, “this is just designed to take my money.” So, sorry for judging without seeing it first, but some things you just know are going to be terrible.
I found myself a new best friend last night. I don’t remember his name and no it wasn’t the guy who graphically described what he wanted to do to me on the patio while telling me not to make this weird. No, I found a fellow Dodger fan in the crowd. You see, I grew up in Colorado, but we didn’t have a baseball team when I was a kid, so I was a Dodgers fan. And my hero as a kid (other than Batman) was Fernando Valenzuela. Big old left-handed pitcher who won a World Series his rookie year. It was impossible not to love Fernando. Recently, the MLB Network showed when he pitched his no hitter. I was supposed to be working but instead I took a three hour break with one of my coworkers to watch a game that was over 20 years old. That’s how much I love Fernando.
Okay, I’m going to have to cut this short today. I’m late for an appointment, but before I go, I just want to say that last week’s episode of Girls was really depressing and I don’t like when things that are supposed to be funny are depressing, so try harder, show. See you next week.
