Little League and Sandwiches

Before I went to transparent on thursday, I dropped by this game to watch random kids play. I was told it was under 8. From watching these kids, I am trying to remember was I that terrible as a kid. I think they just have every kid hit once and then they swap half innings.

The kids would pick up the ball and try to throw it, and the ball would not go anywhere. The coaches would have to go point kids in the direction to run. I was really funny watching that.

Today, I was really tired or something. Went to the honeybaked ham store to get a sandwich. The lady was asking me what I wanted on my sides, however all I could hear her say was ‘garden salad, and side salad”. so for a good 3 minutes I was not comprehending what the difference between a garden and side salad.

Then I finally just asked her to tell me side side salads and I chose the first thing she said. That is when I realized she said “Sides _____”. Not sure why I heard side salad. I just took the first thing she said “macaroni salad”.

there is also a very flamboyent chef in the back. He kept on looking out just to checkout my co-worker and I.

Hitchcock, Psycho

April 4, 2013

 

So I went with my co-worker tonight after work to watch the hitchcock move “Psycho” at the stanford theatre (It was hitchcock movie festival). He bought his cousin, and his friends wife (cousin invited her). 

We ate some falafel across the street from the theatre. Then we went to watch the movie around 830pm. They were showing two different movies “Psycho” and “The Birds”.IMAG1125

When we walked in, we saw 3 people wearing angry bird beanies coming out of “the birds”. We thought it was really fitting and funny.

So they had all these movie posters up and about in a different room. While I waited for the movie doors to open, I walked around this area.

Now inside the theatre.

It had really nice architecture

There was a guy in the middle playing the organ. He was playing just regular music, and I joked with my co-worker that it would be funny if he turned around and was a skeleton. Then have the doors all slam shut and the lights dim really low. That would freak us all out, however, the guy did turn around. He looked like a regular 60 year old man.

So just before the movie was about to start, the organ player played a “sinister” sounding song, and the curtains were pulled away, and the organist was slowly lowered into the stage.

 

A review of the movie psycho. I watched it once, but I guess I forgot a lot of it. It is a great film, and the scary psycho sound and high angle shots made it pretty scary. There was one lady that started screaming in anticipation of screaming. That made me chuckle on the inside. Smile
