Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

Weekend

I was worried for a while this weekend when I remembered they were showing Bubba Ho-Tep at the stupid Uptown Theater on Friday because I'm going to see A Perfect Circle on Friday. I checked the schedule this morning and it looks like it's playing at the Uptown for a week so I should be able to make it. (I can also see it while monstersocks isn't around since I don't think she'd fully appreciate a Bruce Campbell/Elvis picture.)

Oh, on Saturday we were sitting around at monstersocks' parents' house and her father was drinking out of a mug they'd bought in Russia with a picture of a goat with a cabbage on its head and the text "Козерог 22.12-20.01" on it. They weren't sure what it said (it had been purchased because they needed a mug, not because of the goat or anything.) While monstersocks' father looked it up in the dictionary I looked at it and realized it might be Capricorn (with backwards foreign dates.) (I did have to check the most recent issue of the Onion horoscopes to confirm the Capricorn dates.)
