Today I celebrate the release of Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong. I also celebrate the complete uselessness of the washing machine in my apartment building (it’s broken). And therein lies my dilema. Do I travel four blocks away to the closest laundromat or do I throw caution to the wind (and my wardrobe) and spend the evening eating pizza and watching King Kong? I’m VERY partial to the pizza/movie plan, but the lack of clean clothese in my closet is forcing me to re-consider.
Some of you might be asking, “why not do laundry AND watch King Kong”. Oh dear friend I’ve considered this as well. Unfortunately, my only option would be to watch the film on a laptop while I’m at the laundromat. Does that sound fun to you? A laptop… with a very tiny screen!? No, that won’t work.
You might also be asking, “why not just watch the film tomorrow”? Dude, it comes out TODAY. And I’ve NEVER seen it! How can you ask me to wait? That’s just cruel. It would be like telling someone on christmas or their birthday, “you can open those gifts tomorrow”. NO, I CAN NOT!
