Weekend Open Thread

Last night Drew asked me what he used to talk about before there was “Breaking Bad.”

“Mostly the Yankees,” I replied.

“Oh, right,” he said. “Was there anything else?”

“No…” I said.

And so, after this Sunday’s series finale of “Breaking Bad,” our (mostly one-sided) conversations will once again revolve around Drew’s favorite sports team, with probably a few discussions about Jackson thrown in.

But enough about my exciting life. What’s new with you? And for you fellow BB fans, what are your predictions for the finale?

    Aggh, I can’t even think about the Breaking Bad finale. I just hope Jesse makes it out alive. I want good things for Jesse and Marie and the kids. All the others can screw themselves.

    I’m planning on seeing Don Jon this weekend. Anyone else excited to see that movie? I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. So sexy and talented. Also I want to see Enough Said with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I love her too. She was the only reason I watched Seinfeld.
    Also, as a side note, the guy that I’ve been seeing isn’t into movies. He has a little ADHD and says he has trouble focusing during a movie. I’m trying not to be judgmental, but movies are such a big part of my life. I mean, who doesn’t love going to the movies?
    I need to get to the bottom of this.
    Oh well, even if we continue going out, I have other people I can go to the movies with. I have just never known a person to NOT enjoy going to the movies. It’s a little unsettling.

      i want to see don jon so bad. joseph gordon levitt is like my dream boyfriend. did you know he directed and wrote that movie too apparently? my boss told me that on our flight yesterday.

      if your boyfriend doesnt do well with going to movies, just find other people to go with or go alone. watching movies at home should be fine for him, though, because he can just leave, or open his computer, or whatever, right?

        Haha I just laughed when you called him my boyfriend. No, it’s ok. I think there’s a lot more I have to get to the bottom of with him. The fact that he doesn’t like going to the movies is probably the least of my concerns.
        But yeah, my mom and my sister are my movie soulmates so I go with them all the time.
        Also, when I watch a really compelling movie I want to talk about it with the person I saw it with, and he just does not seem like that type of person.
        I don’t understand people who don’t want to talk about the movie you just saw when you get out of the theater!

      Me. I hate going to the movies. If they start at 5p.m. or later I will fall asleep. I don’t like watching tv or movies in the dark, and I would feel rude to ask that the movie theater accommodate me. I can’t eat food in the dark, and what is the point of going to a movie in the theaters if you can’t eat popcorn and m&m’s in the same bite? So pretty much me. I hate the movie theater.

        I couldn’t even tell you the last time I watched a movie in a theater. Or at home, for that matter. I think I have attention span issues – I can’t watch something longer than an hour. And it helps when I already know the characters and basic plot beforehand (like in TV series that I’m already involved in), so I don’t have to think too hard. God, I’m so lazy that I can’t even watch movies. That’s bad, right?

        As for the why, I dunno, it is partially an attention thing & partially a “Why am I going out to sit in a theater with strangers for $12 a ticket in uncomfortable seats?” I would rather watch at home lying down under a blanket cuddling (but even at home, I tend to choose TV shows over movies. My friends all know I “hate movies” so they won’t ask me to watch a movie at their house, even)

        My family tends to “make” me go; like, we’ll all go for somebody’s birthday & then go out to eat. So I do go then, or if my boyfriend REALLY wants to see something (i.e. Evil Dead… I have not forgiven him for that…) but one time things were arranged so I had to go to the movies TWO DAYS IN A ROW. I was so upset.

        Yeah, I would never make a significant other go with me. It just that other guys I have dated have been really into movies, too. I mean, most people I know are. I though “being into movies” was a totally generic, American thing that everyone enjoyed.
        But, yes, I go to the movies by myself sometimes and with people that are equally interested in seeing the movies I want to see.
        It’s no fun dragging someone to see a movie they don’t want to see.

    My husband and I didn’t start watching Breaking Bad until last season and we had to catch up really fast before the final season started. I’m thinking of getting him the DVDs for Christmas (think the final season will be out before then?) because we missed some episodes and some only recorded part of the episodes, but we got mostly caught up.

    This weekend we are doing the best thing ever… we are starting our Halloween decorations! I usually wait until Oct 1st because I think people who have decorations up months and months in advance are crazies, but we have the kids this weekend and we will have decent-ish weather, so we want to at least put up our graveyard. We go ALL OUT for Halloween. Honestly, it’s the only holiday we do that for. We have something like 20 rubbermaid containers full of decorations plus a bunch of stuff that won’t fit in those (like my 7 foot winged reaper). I think we have like 1 container for Christmas. Maybe half of one. Some people say “oh yeah, I like Halloween too” and then they see my pictures and think I’m a crazy person… which I am.

    There’s a bunch of movies out that I want to see, but we just don’t seem to have a lot of time right now. We’ve been waiting until they hit the cheap seats in our area and go for those (can’t beat a $3 movie ticket).

    I’m doing the rudest thing ever tomorrow and skipping a wedding I RSVP’d yes to. Even worse, it’s P’s boss’s daughter’s wedding. I really need to go back to my hometown to visit my grandfather and to relieve my mom again. She’s on her second week of not sleeping, other than last weekend when I watched him one night for her. He’s doing a little better physically (still in critical condition), but he’s kind of giving up hope, so I need to go see him. My parents now have compassion fatigue and can’t encourage him at this point, so I’m skipping the wedding to go try to lift his spirits and relieve my mom so she can rest. We had to cancel our fall party for next weekend and our canoe trip for last weekend too, which was a real bummer but is kind of the least of my concerns right now.

    Other than that, we just started watching X-files, and I’m in love!

        You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.

        Oh god. So many flashbacks.

        Anyway no I would absolutely not judge you for that. Frankly people are really busy, and if you can get off and get in some me time (watching tv show you like), while hanging out with your spouse, why not?

        Oh yeah, he definitely let them know. I just feel bad for the food. We had over $1,000 of food wasted from people who didn’t bother to show up, and I don’t want to do that to someone else. Priorities though.

    My husband, some friends and I are doing a scavenger hunt at Disneyland called MouseAdventures. It’s really hard-core and people are soooo serious about it. Time to knock some kids over at Dland! Jk! Kind-of.. they should really not get in the way of a lady walking fast with her face in her clipboard! 😛

      That sounds really cool! Disney is so fun, can’t imagine mixing a scavenger hunt in! Actually, as I typed this I realized, when you go to Epcot, you can get a “passport” and it comes with a little scavenger hunt thing actually. Have fun!

    I’m going to the Braves game tonight! I’m glad they’ve been doing better this year because the sport teams here generally suck. It’s finally getting a little cool, but still t shirt and sandals weather and I just love being outside and drinking beer.

    Tomorrow, my fiancé and I are taking a friend’s 3 year-old daughter apple picking, on hayrides, and doing the whole farm thing. Our friend is a single dad and he needs a day off, so it should be fun and hopefully not too many tantrums.

Then we’re going to try out a church in the DC area for the first time. I hope I like it. Then a friend’s birthday party and football watching. Only 30 more mins to go until I’m free…

    I don’t know what I’m going to do when Breaking Bad is over! I’m going to have to find another show to obsess over. I don’t know what’s going to happen; I don’t know what I want to happen. I just trust them to end it well. Unlike Dexter…that shit got so bad.

    This weekend I’ll be spending lots of family time! On Sunday my son turns 18 months old, and my best friend is coming over and bringing cupcakes to celebrate (which is really just an excuse to eat cupcakes). Then we’ll put him to bed and drink wine and watch Breaking Bad and forget about having to work Monday morning. 🙂

    I read a really thoughtful interview with Bryan Cranston recently, where he talked about his relationship with his wife and his family. Apparently he had a really messed up childhood, which I never knew about. And then he went on to talk about how his love for his wife is completely conditional. Example “If you kill someone, I don’t love you anymore.”
    Anyway, I wish I could find the interview again because it was really great. I think the truth is that love between two people, even when they’re married, is completely conditional. Not enough people say that.

      I love Bryan Cranston! He gives great interviews, and he’s one of my favorite occasional guests on a podcast I listen to regularly. I think it’s because he didn’t become famous until the cement had dried on his personality. Same with Steve Carell.

      It really is true (for me at least) I mean Arturo knows damn well that there are things I will NEVER put up with-cheating, substance abuse, criminal activity, abuse, to name a few. And Bryan Cranston is awesome, but it´s a bit creepy because he is IDENTICAL to my father, esp on BB (physically, that is haha)

    This morning I found out that my mom’s friend’s husband has my resume in his hands and wants to meet me to talk about career opportunities. He is an attorney who is VERY well-connected within an organization I’ve been interested in working at for awhile because he’s, like, chairman of ALL THE COMMITTEES. He and his wife are apparently pretty tight with the woman who oversees the division I am interested in. I know people these days get jobs based on who they know, not what they know, so I’m excited that sometime this week, I will get network with someone who could probably get my resume in all the right hands.

    I had two DW dreams this weekend— the one involved Bethany & KKZ picking me up from work for some reason? And the other one involved WAPS posting a bunch of porn in the comments. It was relevant to the conversation, but ~I~ was actually IN SOME OF IT?? And some people (theattack was one, I remember) were commenting to her on my behalf, like “you shouldn’t post porn, what if there’s someone in the pics that we know?” Because I guess you guys were trying to be slick, & not be like “THAT’S FABELLE, omgz”

    Sooooo weird, haha

      DW has taken over your subconscious! Mine, too. I had a dream that I was in law school and Wendy was in my class. At the end we got our rankings and I was ranked 11th out of 150 or so, and Wendy was ranked 1st! When I found out, and sought her out to tell her about all her opportunities, like summer associate positions in Big Law, that were open to her considering her stellar ranking. Weird.

    Man, why is it so hard to make friends? I tried to be friends with some people from my first kickball team but they didn’t really seem interested in being friends with me. My new kickball team might have some potential, but I’m not sure. I could be friends with the girls I work with at White House Black Market, which I just started, but I don’t know how long that will take. I think I’ll try some meetup groups. I really wish I was part of a group again.

      It seems to be hard to meet new people in your 20’s. Just because you didn’t click with your first kickball team doesn’t mean you won’t click with other people in different groups. I think meet up groups sound like a great idea! Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there — it’s always good to make new friends. Sometimes you’ll click with a group instantly, other times it may take a while.

        Yeah, you’re right. I will keep trying! I just wanted to vent to people who understand how I feel. I also feel like it’s harder for me to connect to people just because I’m not really up to date on what’s happening these days in music and stuff. Like everybody on my FB was talking about Imagine Dragons the other night (they did a show in Houston) and I was like who? But it will happen. I’ve made friends before…..I know I can do it again.

      It’s definitely not you! I’ve noticed this too, at various points in my life, and I thought it was because I was weird or something. The more I think about it, though, the more I think it has to do with how many relationships people have time for in their lives. At this particular point, between work, significant other, and friendships I’m trying to maintain, I don’t have the time to really cultivate and nurture new close friendships. That being said, when I (rarely) meet someone I really click with, they just seem to effortlessly integrate into the group of friends I had from school. I really admire that you are out trying new things and putting yourself out there – that takes a lot of moxie (heh), and it will pay off!

    My weekend was freaking awesome until about 7pm Sunday. The Eagles lost ridiculously bad…I was so pumped since the game was being broadcast locally here in FL, I could stay home, we made wings…it was going to be awesome. Then we started loosing miserably and Fox switched the game they where showing! I’ve never ever seen that done, and I was pissed. I didn’t even eat any of the wings! Blah.
