Not that I went anywhere. Well, I actually did go somewhere. I was in Los Angeles on and off for almost two months. I was directing a super low budget movie. It was a hell of an interesting experience that involved very little sleep.
Now back to my regular scheduled programing.
Read in the paper today that some guy with entirely too much time on his hands had been banned for life from going into Tim Hortons. This blessing in disguise came as a result of his repeated (3 times) complaints about the quality of the decaf coffee. He claimed it had a burned taste. First of all - it had a burned taste because no one drinks decaf and it sits on the burner for a long time.
So this guy actually writes a letter to head office - gets a meeting and then is stunned when he arrives at the meeting to find a letter ordering him to keep his distance from the coffee joint. Next he takes his cause to the press and the press actually takes up the torch! I read two accounts and both leaned in sympathy towards the dumb ass.
Can you imagine the fervour with which this idiot must have lodged his complaints? The press made no reference to any such behaviour but anyone who has worked for minimum wage in a place like Tim Hortons knows the fury with which Joe and Josephine Public can come at you.
I'm not a fan of Tim Hortons but my opinion of them has gone up a few notches for now.
As I type this, I'm watching Rob Zombie's Halloween II. Very disappointing. His remake of the original was one of the best horror movies I'd seen in years. This is almost unwatchable. He's changed the nature of the characters. That's just something you don't do. The heroine is the foulest, nastiest, whiniest little bitch I've seen since they let Ann Coulter have a microphone. I'm hoping he(Zombie) further betrays the fans and franchise and kills her off before much more film rolls by. I like Zombie but I think he must have been pissed off at someone when he wrote this one.
