Hurricane Frances and the worst Movie Ever
Well here we are close to getting slammed by another hurricane. The last one, Charlie hit Punta Gorda. This one looks like it’s going to hit north of South Florida, but you never know with these tricky devils. I just hope that my apartment in South Beach doesn’t flood and that my fishes are ok!
I came to my parents to ride out the storm since Miami Beach was an evacuation zone. Not a good place to be right now. This nasty hurricane season we are experiencing is reason enough to move to LA pronto! I’ve very psyched about the move but yesterday I had a dip in the meter and was a little down.
It has to do a lot with my grandfather. He’s been in the hospital now for 17 days. He wasn’t doing so well and we thought it might be the end but he’s pulling through like a champion. He’s almost 88 years old now with Parkinson’s disease and he almost bled to death because of an ulcer. But we are a strong family and he’s still with it and not ready to let go. My fear of death has always been very strong. I can’t stomach funerals. I know death is part of life but it’s always been something that gets me worked up.
Yesterday I had high blood pressure, I was super anxious and every little thing annoyed me to no end. I thought a lot about how far I will be from my parents. It’s very depressing but I am also 27 years old and want to experience something other than Miami. Miami is a great city but I think L.A. will offer something wondefully different.
It seems like there is an endless amount of options for adventure in California. Since I was a little kid I dreamed about moving out there. I owe myself the chance to try it for at least a year. And it’s pretty much risk-free since it’s on the company tab. I think I will love it there. And my dream is to get my parents out there enough that they will fall in love with California too.
I’m not as depressed today. I’ve been chatting with a couple of guys from Los Angeles and meet some cool people that I will hope will turn into good friends when I’m out there. It’s always scary when you are in a new place and don’t know where to go. Luckily it’s not a new job, I just have to get used to working face-to-face with everyone instead of over instant messenger.
I saw the worst movie with Rafael and Tommy the other day. Exorcist: The Beginning. Don’t see it for the love of God. It was unbearably hilarious and ridiculous at the same time. It wasn’t scary. It wasn’t provocative, and the last five minutes of the movie when you get Exorcist I type of special effects were lame. The dialogue at the end is hilarious. Look out for the fucking the exorcist up the ass line. It was classic. It had us laughing through the ending of the movie.
I rented Princess Monoke and This is Spinal Tap from NetFlix.com. Princess Monoke was great. I very rarely get into Japanese anime but this was really nicely done and the story progressed nicely. It made more sense than the second movie that I saw first. That one was a little strange. I also rented This is Spinal Tap and saw half of it. It was a little slow with some funny stuff in between. I’ll watch the rest tonight and hopefully it will get better.
If I have power and DSL tomorrow I’ll let you guys know how the storm goes. It got downgraded to a category 3 hurricane so it just might be very bad weather. We’ll see. Wish me luck.
