So I watched "Sex Drive" last night on Netflix, thinking it was 2am and it would be so incredibly mindless I'd fall asleep out of sheer boredom in a few minutes. It started off promising: Utterly worthless. But for some reason I kept watching, and it turned into an actually funny movie, and what's more, the lead female didn't annoy me, because she actually seemed very realistic. I mean, other than the goth look and the lack of onscreen drinking, I practically WAS that girl in high school.

Then the movie made me really miss being in high school, and having high school crushes, and being young and free like high schoolers are. I felt a bit jealous of them, I have to say. Also, Seth Green, who I haven't liked since Can't Hardly Wait, actually had a really funny part in the movie. I ended up staying awake to watch the whole goddamn thing, and although the end was predictable (boy and girl wind up together, duh) the way it went down was well thought out, I thought.

I am pleased to see that I did in fact wake up this morning though, since there was a small percentage of Apocalypse coming in the night. They turned on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN today. Well, it's been on for awhile, but today they actually started smashing atoms together. No giant black hole or engulfing strangelet has appeared yet, so we might be in the clear. Might. I've seen one too many disaster movies to discount it entirely until we're safely into 2013.

I'm starting to get rather excited for my upcoming wedding. The fact that I'm technically already married has stopped bothering me, and now I kind of like it. Firstly, I won't be all paranoid that everything go right on my big day, or fall apart in a bucket of tears or anything silly like that.

Also, is it just me, or are others naturally skeptical at weddings too? I go, and it's generally fun, and then I always think "Well, there's a 55% chance this is going to end very badly. I should get them something that's easily dividable, like silverware or two shot glasses."

I don't think most people know what they're getting into when they get married. But I do, since I've been married for over a year now. So at least I can go into my own wedding with a sense that it's going to stick. Granted, one year is far from a lifetime (I hope) but the amount of marriages that fall apart in the first year astounds me. I don't think anyone really would have taken my first marriage seriously since it happened so fast and out of the blue, but hopefully this one will elicit a little less cynicism.

I actually feel pretty lucky in my marriage. Sometimes I feel old and tied down, especially when I watch youngsters in the prime of their lives learning lessons the hard way and I get all nostalgic, but for the most part I think I'm much more satisfied these days than I used to be. Also I like having Adam around and I'm pretty sure I'd fall apart if I had to go back to being on my own.

Sidenote: Sometimes having a baby drives me nuts. Really. James is pretty cool, and I love him lots and all, but goddamn kid, sometimes I just want to sit on the couch and stare into space for a few hours, why you gotta keep pooping all the time?
