A Horrible 49ers Game

Yesterday I went over to visit E’s house in Newark, although it was for only a few hours.  She was preparing a Halloween party.  She fed me some tamales for lunch, which was better than my usual crap fare.  I plopped down on her couch and watched parts of the movies "The Big Easy," "Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood," "Independence Day," and "Rock Star."  It was funny to see Marky Mark in that last movie a week after I saw him in "The Departed."  I couldn’t tell if the movie was a serious drama or a Spinal Tap-like parody.  Jennifer Aniston looked about a decade younger, too.
E gave me some bags of frozen food to take home, plus a paperback book about John Lennon.  I gave her some of my extra CDs of music I thought she’d like – Joan Baez, David Bowie, and Elton John.  As she drove me over to the South Hayward BART station, we talked about how Elizabeth Taylor has aged and Linda Ronstadt has gained a ton of weight.  I had to go to sleep early because my head hurt like hell.  I was pleased that Oregon State somehow beat USC, putting Cal in first place, and I wanted to stay up for highlights, but I felt too weary.  I watched that "Alias" episode again, and I wondered why Vaughn didn’t recognize Lauren’s eyes behind that mask.  I also noticed that when Lauren rips her clothes off to have sex with Sark, she didn’t expose as much skin as I previously thought.  I guess that was Jennifer Garner’s exclusive domain.
I went out to Albertson’s to fortify my supplies of football-watching snacks, and when I got home, I discovered that the 49ers were losing at halftime by the ridiculous score of 41-0.  The radio announcers were making lame jokes in an effort to keep us tuned in.  I hate when they do that.  Knowing that the Raiders were playing the Steelers in the 1 o’clock game, I thought I was in for a long day.  I think I miss the A’s.
If I feel up to it on Tuesday, I’ll go see "The Illusionist" at the Elmwood.
