No doom in LA we survived
Well after panicking way too much, and by someone here's suggestion, instead of waiting for the doom all alone in my apt, I went to go see a movie. First I had a nice meal at the food court :P

I turned on some of my favorite music, and walked a few miles to the nearest mall to see Oblivion. At the time Jurassic Park 3D was sold out. I was half expecting to see 15 mins of the movie and then die, and I was fine, somewhat serene, I mean, if this WERE real, there would be NOTHING I could do, and I had become fine with that. I'd called all my friends and family and loved ones hours ahead of time, not acting crazy or anything, not talking about being afraid of a FB page, but just to talk with them "one last time" just in case. I don't talk to them enough. I found a bit more appreciation in things. I also stopped by a local church. I consider myself somewhat agnostic, but in these times I did say a few prayers for everyone, just in case, couldn't hurt. Of course not being religious I don't know any prayers, so I just talked from my heart to whatever may be listening like I would anybody else, and followed up with amen. Must've been hilarious if anyone would've heard me.

I also had a beer or two or three before the movie. Why not right?

Anyway, Oblivion. I pretty much agree with the Inquisitor that the acting and continuity was a bit off, but I liked it. A bit of overacting and signature shades from Mr. Cruise which just got me laughing when it was supposed to be serious, but I think it had pretty good points too. To talk about the plot at all would spoil things, this had so many twists and turns, some I still don't even understand (like the end, WTF happened there???), but to sum it all up

Tom Cruise fights Flying Roombas with guns.

Some of it was predictable, cliche. Some I never would've seen coming if I hadn't accidentally read part of another thread here spoiling half of it. But it looked great. I thought it was gonna be a bit like The Matrix, but it really wasn't.

After that and realizing we hadn't died (even though I saw the Cinco De Mayo airplane crash drill thread from my phone) I decided to stick around for another movie, I don't get out to theaters that much anymore :/

So by that time Jurassic Park 3D was available, and I was happy to live so I bought a ticket. I don't really need to discuss JP, we all know it I think. But they did a REALLY great job with the 3D. And wow, it holds up so nicely. Though Oblivion was good, JP is a classic and blows it out of the water. There's something about it, about that time, that's just missing from modern movies. Maybe it's the effort, the soul...
As an adult I caught the dialogue and acting more too (as a kid I pretty much ignored that and was like WHEN are the dinosaurs coming back???)

During the movie I think I felt a few earthquakes, but it could've just been the people behind me being scared and kicking the seat. Also I remembered the Visitor's Center being a lot bigger...

Then I walked back. The whole day, the whole time I was outside though, it was so weird, because there was NEVER a plane. No planes, no helicopters, in the whole sky. This is LA, there's always something. So that was a bit weird.

And now I'm back, and this whole stupid fear got me questioning wtf am I doing with my life? I'm going to try to make more contributions to society or something, or just try to be a better, less cynical person. Try not to get so hung up on predictions with almost no backing, and fear, but stay aware. Easier said than done.

Anyway rant over, all is well for now yay! rant

No doom in LA and nothing happened with FEMA's 'Zombie Apocalypse drill'.
