Or.....Being Electrocuted!!!

So I was in a sandwich shop the other day and I heard not only one of my favorite songs of all time, but one of my favorite poems:

"Harriet, Harry-et, sweet Harriet,
Hard-hearted harbinger of haggis.
Beautiful, bemused, bellicose butcher.
So knowing,
so trusting,
so lov-ed.
He wants you back he screams into the night air, like a fireman going to a window that has no fire,
'cept the passion of his heart.
I am lonely,
It's really hard.
This poem sucks."

I thought it was so funny since I haven't seen this movie in years, and i haven't listened to the soundtrack for even longer! i don't even know If i still have it!!! but it made me feel good and I hope the little sandwich shop played this deliberately, and not just a satellite itunes type of thing!

It reminds me of youth. I know that sounds cheesy, but i felt like i was in high school again, and started wondering what some of the people i used to hang out with were doing. You know, as daydreams go- i started thinking about what i was doing when this movie came out, who out of my friends liked this movie with me, the one-liners we used to say - and most importantly: how everyone knew i was in love with Mike Myers (starting with Wayne's World, but look how he grew!!!)! I know I've given up Mike for Jack Black, but there's still a soft spot in my heart for him.
Of course there is!!! He's one of the funniest men alive! And so cute! i remember watching So I Married an Axe Murderer and loving Harriet's clothes! I also remembermer seeing that Mike Myers was wearing Doc's and i thought, "WOW!!! He's so cool!" Of course, i had no idea about beat poets, cappuccino, or the fact that Mike Myers didn't have a job throughout the whole movie! All i thought was that, "Heed! Pants! Move!!!!" was hilarious!

Ah. Good Times. Good Times.
Can you believe this movie was made in 1993?
I feel old.

93...that's the year I graduated high school. I can't believe that movie is that old. I thought it was more like the late 90's. I was a much different person then. I was actually in shape and had never touched a cigarette or beer. For me that was the year that I had my first serious girlfriend and my only broken heart. Also, it was the start of college. Even though 93 was a year of big changes, I would have to say my favorite year was 1994 into 1995. That was the period where I was really starting to experience life is a very social way. That year ties with 1989 as my favorite year of all time. In '89 I was a skater. "Skate or die, dude" I even had that lame haircut where one side in the front was longer than the other. I was a complete geek but completely happy.

What makes you think your not a complete geek now Jason?

I'm having a hard time remembering when you weren't a geek. It's ok, I'm absolutely sure there was no point in my life when I wasn't a geek.
