My dear friend Kristy…

Is correct. I didn’t go to the movies for approximately 5 years… maybe more…. From the time I was about 12 or 13 until - hmmmm - college maybe? I found them dirty and gross and claustrophobic! I think it is b/c I saw some Dateline story about guys sticking hypodermic needles in the movie seats in darkened theaters and injecting unsuspecting high school girls with AIDS or date rape drugs or something. (Yea that’s right I thought I was going to get “injected with the AIDS”…probably by the skinny, 6 ft tall black man in the 'navy' coat and hat. Thanks DATELINE!! for teaching me about AIDS and racial profiling!!) Anyway, I still don’t go that often and I really like to sit on the aisle - unless the theater is empty and I am sharing my popcorn with Elizabeth.

That being said…

JOHN.
TUCKER.
MUST.
DIE.

was FUNNY. Really better than I expected. I laughed out loud several times. You should go. If you are into that kind of thing. It is Ten Things I Hate About you kinda FUNNY. (ok, it’s not nearly THAT good but it gets CLOSE and Sophia Bush from One Tree Hill on the WB (yea that’s right One Tree Hill on the WB) is my girlfriend). Gawd, profile ME with all the teeny boppers that love high school movies and the freaking WB! “They” GET ME EVERY TIME!
just say NO to hypodermic needles.
And don't listen to everything you hear on DATELINE!

It was ALMOST Mean Girls funny. Pretty dang funny. I laughed out loud many times. I think we were the only ones sometimes because everyone else in the theater was actually IN high school still. Not removed enough for it to be funny yet. Ha!!

for a very long period of time--okay all through high school--my friend marie and i would stay to the farthest side of the escalator while going up--or down--in the metro. we had seen something on tv saying that people would inject you with aids while passing you on the up/down escalator. just stab you and go! seriously. scared. us. to. death.

oooh i remember being scared of that too. i remember when we were young there was a rumor that someone got aids in the nlr theater from sitting on a needle. i haven't been back since.

When I was little, I was afraid a monster lived behind the black curtains that ran along side the walls in the theater. I'd say that's a safer phobia than hypodermic needles. I'll take a bigfoot over AIDS any day!

Kat you are funny!!! Alright and I have to admit, my sister and I went to see it last night, it was actually pretty cute. But you know me I like the corny/cheeseball movies. :)
