Maybe it's not traditional but one of my newest traditions is the yearly viewing of Leprechaun on the Sci-Fi channel. Like many horror movies it is nearly a complete waste of time. The only redeeming value to the movie is watching a young braless Jennifer Anniston prance around the TV screen.
As I have stated on previous occasions, I do believe that I suffer from Adult ADD. While watching the movie, I couldn't help but think of how Jen looked like a sweet girl next door type that no-one could help but fall in love with. That got me to thinking how she was dumped like an old throw rug when Brad Pitt got the hots for Angelina Jolie. This really got me wondering how many people would dump a sweet, good looking person for a oiled up hot crazed sexpot. This got me to thinking of an old girlfriend that I kicked to the curb because the rough sex just got too damned rough. She bit a damned chunk out of my chest that probably should have received stitches. This got me to thinking about how a humans bite is supposedly worse than any other animal's bite. This got me to thinking that the mosquito is the most dangerous beast due to it's transmission of malaria and other diseases. This got me to thinking of how a good friend of mine once drank only gin and tonics when drinking alcohol because he said that he was protecting himself from malaria due to the quinine in tonic water. This made me think of how the Three Stooges with their shooting tonic water, gouging, biting, hitting, kicking, slapping, and generally beating each other is one of the funniest damn things that I can watch. This made me realize that my wife and most women hate the Three Stooges but most of my male friends and most men laugh like hell at the stooges. This got me to wondering what else men and women find different in life.
Who would have ever thought that watching a bad horror movie from the early '90's would lead me to a philosophical discussion of the differences between the sexes? I guess I will go and revisit the old posts on Beauty v. The Beast.
