on watching escapist movies

...for instance! After the relatively cerebral experience of Timecode, I went with Patrick (no one else I know would go!) to see Jackass: The Movie.

Patrick put it best on our way out of the theater. "It's good to feel like a twelve-year-old sometimes." And that was about it. It was about the dumbest thing I think I've ever seen on the big screen. Johnny Knoxville and pals are Way too obsessed with butts, scrotums, poop, and jacking off, and they have a disturbingly erotic masochism about them. BUT, I was cracking up almost continuously through the movie. It was fucking hilarious. Much later I realized I had crusty dried tears around my eyes, because I was laughing so hard during the movie.

Man, it was good to laugh that hard. It makes up for the embarrassment of spending money to see the movie in the first place.

yummy cooking

Took advantage of the new oven to make a batch of 40 Cloves and 1 Chicken. An easy thing to make if you've got something like a dutch oven, and peeling 40 cloves of garlic is only slightly tedious, and DANG what a success. That much garlic cooked for that long creates a taste that's sweet and luscious and just has to be experienced to be believed.

It's definitely on the list to make many more times. I really need to start keeping a list of "success" recipes. Especially since Kate has informed me that I'm going to be doing more of the cooking when we get back together. I guess I really did get out of the habit while living with her, since she is a much better cook than I and has a good knack for throwing together meals out of seemingly nothing. But I suppose she is right. I can cook, and often quite well, if I put my mind to it. But meal planning is such an... annoyance.
