so long, and thanks for all the fish

friday night we went to the neptune to see the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. this movie has been so fucking long in the making it's ridiculous. i remember in 9th grade, a bunch of us including jeff hillary made a promise to all see the movie together, wherever we were and whenever it was. sorry jeff... i didn't make it back. i'm sure you understand. and you still have my fucking stephen hawking book, you bastard, so we're even, really. anyway, as i predicted to tessa as we were walking out of the theater, i have the dolphin's chorus stuck in my head. "so long, so long, so long, so long, so long, so long and thaaaaaaaanks - for all the fish." it was a cute number, and a cute movie as well. there really is too much material in those books to pack into one movie, so that considered, i think they did a good job fitting in all the best jokes and making them make as much sense as possible (very little, really, but that's as douglas adams intended i am sure) in under two hours.

I saw it on Friday too. I liked it. I thought it was done in the spirit of the book (as Adams would have wanted it). So me and you sorta saw it together, just at different places. Mr. Hawking could probably prove that it was together...

On the upside, I've been holding onto that book waiting to give it back to you, it almost got sold about a year ago, but I still have it, you just have to show up in Grapevine to claim it.
