I watched Requiem for a Dream last night. Oh my God. I hated it so.

I couldn't believe how stupid it was. I mean, it was "well-done" or whatever. But as far as being "deep" or "brilliant" or having whatever qualities of greatness that all of these pseudo-intellectual emo fringe types credit it with... I don't think so. I don't think I would have been able to sit through it if I hadn't been inebriated. Why are suburban white kids so fascinated with gritty movies about drug addiction? I mean, it was tolerable until Jennifer Connelly started doing the double ass penetration to support her heroine addiction. That's a little too much contrived melodrama for my taste.

I suppose I have to go back to work today. By some rare miracle, the courthouse was closed two days in a row. Today I'm sure it's open. Oh well. I should probably actually make money before the end of the week.
Also, I'm inexplicably happy. See below.

Love is someone driving an hour to see you in a blizzard for Valentine's Day.

I can't believe I went to work today. We were the only people in our entire building who came in and the freaking court house was closed. Happily, I got to go home at 11. Unhappily, the broken toilet flooded half the house.

For dinner I had a huge head of broccoli. I love vegetables. I wish people could understand.

I saw The Vagina Monologues last night with Ariel. It was just... fantastic. I don't know that anything else can be said about it. Just... fantastic. And I bought a chocolate vagina lolipop. Eee!

Conveniently enough, I hosted a "tea party" at an elementary school for Murky's and the mayor was there. I had the opportunity to ask him why they didn't make graffiti removal part of road crew. He paused, told me a bald face lie--that they only have road crew a few times a year. It pissed me off. The real reason? They want the revenue from the fines. Great "friend to small business" you are, Roswarski.

Here's something stupid:

The mayor of Lafayette is proposing a $1000 fine to business owners who do not have graffiti removed from their buildings within 10 days.

No, seriously.

Yes, let's penalize the small business owners who already have enough things to worry about in a local economy that isn't exactly lucrative for them anyway. Here's an idea: let's make graffiti removal part of road crew or a community service opportunity, rather than the financial responsibility of the victims. And since when is graffiti a problem in Lafayette? Maybe this city, instead of sitting around tonight voting on a dumb idea, should be out plowing the roads that are still, after 7 hours, covered in 6 inches of snow.
I'll tell you what I'd do if I owned a building: I'd get a bunch of kids together to graffiti the entire fucking thing as an art project and sue the city when they tried to fine me. HA!
