Amuse-Yeux (updated)

A conversation between myself and my buddy Storm:

Me - "Hey, want to go see Paranormal Activity 3?"

Storm - "Well, that depends. Are you going to scream uncontrollably and throw punches everytime something even remotely scary happens, like when I took you to see Paranormal Activity 2?"

Me - "Um... probably."

Storm - "Because remember how you almost kicked that one lady in the head? Honestly, dude, everyone sitting in front of us was more afraid of you than they were of the film."

Me - "I can pretty much guarantee more screaming and kicking."

Storm - "I mean, hey, no offense, but you're an absolute shitshow during horror movies."

Me - "I agree. And I completely understand if you don't want to go with me."

Storm - "Are you kidding? I wouldn't miss this for the world."

If anything, I'm glad to know I keep my friends entertained.

ETA: Storm shrieked like a little girl the entire time, while I only had to hide behind him twice. Who's more butch? Yeah, that's right, I'm more butch. Testify. (snap snap)

Sometimes My Life Is Gay Pagan Algebra

Today is Houston's official Pagan Pride Day, involving various events and celebrations at a funky downtown venue. Although receiving several sincere and much-appreciated invites, I chose not to attend, mainly because I knew who else would be showing up:

1 - This guy I briefly dated. Let's call him GPA.

2 - This other guy (GPB) who I've never actually dated, but whom I've slept with a few times. No big thing at face value, except GPB was in a relationship with GPA for several months, and he's not aware that GPA and I even know each other, much less that we've held hands and had some... shall we say, enlightening discussions about him. Also, while GPA understands that GPB and I are technically friends, he doesn't know that GPB and I have thrown down, nor does he know that back when they were together, GPB made a couple of... unfortunate comments about him.

3 - Two hundred innocent Pagans who would accidentally get mown down in the ensuing crossfire.

After reviewing the overall equation, I decided my interests were best met by staying home and watching horror movies on cable. Because, y'know, less bloodshed that way.
