watchmen

i decided to write a little something about watchmen. (this is for you, eddy! lol) i saw it last wknd (opening wknd) and ... i dont really know how i feel about it. actually, it's so funny. right afterwards, i was on the phone with bert and he asked me, "so what do you think of it? do you recommend it?" and i couldnt say LOL

i really do not know how i feel about the movie.

on one hand, i like the story. the characters: good and bad. how it's overall filmed and put together.

on the other hand, it's soooo graphic... in all ways possible!! SOOO graphic that this ONE con weights about the same as the pros i mentioned lol seriously. is this rated NC-17? lol is it really necessary to show that much for that long? lol i mean it's no porn but the sex scenes are quite similar to a rated NC-17 movie... but more sexy? lol and if you're wondering... yes i saw an NC-17 movie once.

and all that blood and violence. if i have to describe it, i would reference kill bill... but more gruesome. which is understandable since it's based on a comic book (just as how kill bill was sorta based on animes). and also, they dont just show the typical gruesome things. there were some that were just uncalled for lol but i'm assuming they are just being true to the comic book. (eddy? yes?) it's just hard to watch lol

so i guess if i had to pick, i would say to go watch it once. but be forewarned! a family (parents with a boy) walked out of the movie theater i was in! it was right after a gruesome scene (that i covered my eyes for) that came after the long sex scene lol

for the ppl who did see it, what do you think? like? dislike?
sasuke raise eyebrow (whatever)

time to shape up

i got a bill from my doctor's for $25. i look at the bill and i'm just not sure why. it was unclear. so i called the number on the bill to ask.

the lady on the phone was completely clueless. she goes ahead and tells me the following things (in no particular order):
- my copay is $25 when it's $35
- i own $15 when i owe $25
- i didnt pay my last copay, when i know i did

her "you paid your copay for your dec visit but not for your jan visit"
me "i did pay for jan, i remember paying $10"
her "do you have a receipt? it says here that you didnt"
me "on my bill it says i did! look. dec 31 09 patient co- credit $35"
her "yeah"
me "jan 30, 09 patient co- credit $10. it's the same description"
her "oh yeah! you did pay! i see it now"

just imagine the whole conversation being that way. and there are other stuff here and there that i dont recall.

eventually i realized myself that the receptionist must've under charged me for my copay when i was there. it's $35 but she only asked for $10. when i was there, i thought it was sorta weird too. but i thought maybe, just maybe it's cheaper copay bc i visited the doctor recently?? i mean she's the one asking for $10, she saw my insurance card, she should know what she's doing. nope...

anyway when all is done. i said to her "next time, you should really make sure you know what you are saying before you say it. bc when you make mistakes like that, it makes you look bad" her "well it's hard. i have two screens" (or something like that) me "stop making excuses. it's your job. have a good day. bye" and i hung up. she prob just thought i'm some bitch and heard nothing i said. oh well.

i wish i stayed a little longer so i could tell her "you have to shape up. with the economy so bad these days, everyone is looking for a job. if you're not doing your job correctly, you can be replaced easily by someone quicker, smarter and cheaper than you" maybe if i added that, she would've heard me.

i think my tone may have been harsh to her, but i was actually being nice lol at least i gave a damn and warned her. hm. was i being harsh?
