Went to the convenience store last night. Picked up some soft drink and some corn chips and went to the counter and asked for some Tally-Ho's (poor grammar, but Tally-Hos just looks wrong). The guy behind the counter asks, "Big ones?" I'm thinking, "They come in different sizes?", before I realise he's pointing at an over-sized promotional box. Two-foot long box of ciggarette papers, now that would make one hell of a spliff.
Oh yes, some of you may have realised that I don't smoke. Not tobacco anyway. So Emily and I had acquired some product, and, man, this was some strong shit. A bit too strong. We were both pretty fucked up, and we were only able to hold onto some semblance of normalcy by eating every scerrick of food in the house and watching Muppets From Space.
The weirdest thing was, I noticed a whole lot of jokes I've never noticed before. Like a gay joke: "I've always had alien tendencies." And a number of movie references: ID4, MIB and even The Abyss (sorry, no TLA). Why did I notice things bent, that I had never realised in the several times I had watched this movie sober? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that everything seemed to be going in slow motion.
