w00t PaWn: Last of Us

I'm trying to get M to tell me some of the details of this video game he's playing. It's called Last of Us? He finds it very annoying to summarize the "complicated" story line. "I guess there's this girl, and she's infected by zombies, and he's immune and some smugglers or whatever help her but the lady gets killed and the guy promises to get her to the scientists and they're just doing their thing." he says.

"Doing their thing????" I say.

"Trying to survive in the wasteland of the United States."

It looks to me like this girl just sneaks around and hides from people. Then occasionally she jumps on some dude's back like a spider monkey and stabs them in the neck! Except one time she was hiding from these people in a gross bathroom? And these guys came in, and she stabbed one of them in the neck, but then some other guys shot her a couple time and she died.  M said the humans are more dangerous than the zombies because they're cannibals.

Cannibalists are just lazy, you know? It's like, eat a goddamn salad, amirite?

 M just got excited because the girl is sneakin' around a pinball arcade. He's really into pinball lately. In fact, he's building his own miniature pinball game out of cardboard and a monitor and duct tape. No joke.

This game is pretty boring from what I've seen. All you seem to do is sneak around and occasionally stab someone in the neck!  Although, I do find sneaking inherently amusing.  Do you know, I am completely unable to sneak up on people?  If I try to do it, I laugh too hard.  I probably wouldn't last too long in a zombie waste-land.  Neither would M, judging by how much he's getting killed in this game.  OH SNAP!  

Here are some sneaking examples that make me laugh:

What in the hell are those kittens sneaking up on?

I just. Can't.

Basically famous

When my mom was in town a few weeks ago we went to a really fun evening event at the Art Institute for the Fashion and Modernity show - the theme was hats and cloves - here we are.
Isn't that cute? They also took pictures of people as you come into the party - there's one of us on the AIC's Flickr page. Have a look at everyone's crazy hats!

Jack Reacher (round)

We watched Jack Reacher a few weeks ago.  M didn't like it but I did.  What.  So I like Tom Cruise. A lot.

There's this awesome scene where this guy is trying to get him to come to this abandoned place and get ambushed and probably killed, but, instead on the phone he hangs up on them.  Then he calls them back and shouts at them and hangs up again. Then he calls them back and yells and hangs up again! (On a pay phone!) Then instead of them scaring him, he scares them and he's going to come and ambush them and kill them.

I thought that was pret-ty awesome. The next time someone phones me up and tries to mess with me, I'm going to hang up on them and then call them back and say, "On second thought, I'd like to kill you." And hang up on them again! BOOM!
