When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.
I’m terrified of burning alive. I’m seriously so afraid of it. I’m afraid the house will catch fire while I’m sleeping and the smoke alarm won’t wake me up. I don’t fuck around when it comes to fire. I’m very flammable.
I feel like blind dates should be orchestrated in groups of three or four, none of whom have ever met, so instead of just a pair of people who will probably end the night disappointed, you have a few options and a better chance to click with someone, and if none of the people involved click with anyone else, at least you can all get shitfaced and sing karaoke and make fun of each other and have a good night out with new friends instead of an awkward dinner and a silent taxi ride home.
This is so much better than the “traditional” method. And it’s also safer.
