When we came back, my windshield was smashed and two of my tires were flat. His response: 'Yeah sorry. I just got out of a bad relationship. I took her out that night to a nice restaurant. We had a few drinks at the restaurant. She said she wasn't feeling well. Apparently she was on some medicine that made alcohol twice as powerful and she was a total lightweight. I offered to take her home, and she ended up puking in my brand new car. Being young and poor we went to an Applebee's where my date ordered off the kid's menu getting herself chicken fingers.
Embarrassed by this, I did what I could to steer the conversation away and try to have a pleasant evening. Noticing the look on my face my date got upset and in an annoyed tone said, 'I just learned how to do this last week OK! We had plans to get dinner and see a movie, typical I know, but it was early so we were having some coffee and talking, getting to know one another, and I notice a woman in the corner who has fallen asleep in one of the big comfy chairs. We saw a small raccoon. He screams like a prepubescent boy and it hisses at him as it calmly walks away from him. I comfort him, giggle, and call him silly-buns and in the middle of my explanation about city animals and how to deal with them, he turns around suddenly and yells, 'You hurt my pride and you're using words I don't understand to explain something I don't f care about.
I'm gone. During dinner, I notice a scar on her arm. I ask about it. By now, completely forgot about the got-hit-by-a-car story. Crosswalk light is about to turn red. I say 'We can make it' and we start rushing across the street. We almost get hit by a car. At the end of the night, I walk her outside and to her car in the driveway and we're just standing there. She says she had a good time and she'll come to have a drink with me on the weekend blah blah blah, that old song and dance. Yes, poked her, with my finger Then she said, 'OK I'm really not a fan of astrology, but I don't really care if someone likes it.
Anyway, this girl said she was good at guessing signs. I must admit, I was impressed when she got it right in only 10 guesses. Read the original article on Business Insider UK.

Jul 13, John rated it it was amazing. Short, sweet and guffaws aplenty. And just the kind of ending I like, almost. Jan 04, Tom Hailand rated it it was amazing. Excellent, and not your typical ending I'll have to get all Victor's books. Big Stupid should be back in a longer book, a full length novel. Mar 10, Kym Meise rated it really liked it. Great quick read.. Oct 30, Beau rated it it was amazing. So, it definitely had some heavy lifting to do. For the most part, Doctor Strange checked all the boxes and knocked it out of the park.
Star Benedict Cumberbatch did a fantastic job of bringing Dr. Stephen Strange to life, and the film told a compelling story, with some mind-blowing visuals to boot. But it wasn't perfect, and like most big popcorn flicks, there were still a few major head-scratchers in this one. The title "Mary Sue" refers to a character who is almost too flawless, be it at picking up a skillset or simply being a really good person.
The phrase was bandied around quite a lot around the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in regards to Rey and how she was rocking those Jedi skills with nary a lesson. In some ways, the same applies to Doctor Strange. Yes, he falters a bit early on, but by the middle of the movie, he goes from struggling student to magical prodigy. Then, when the action ramps up, he holds his own against Kaecilius during the assault on the Sanctums, while other sorcerers are getting taken out left and right.
Strange is a bright guy, but c'mon. He goes from skeptic novice to magic ninja a bit too quickly. Marvel movies have never been afraid of clunky product placement. In Doctor Strange , things are a bit more subtle, but one noticeable little moment sticks out like a sore thumb. Strange brings his laptop along, and it turns out he's using a Surface 3 laptop. That is fine, but c'mon—a rich surgeon like Strange couldn't spring for a Surface Pro? That's weak sauce, bro. Strange manages to hold his own against Kaecilius, even getting the drop on him.

But, after the fight, he's stabbed in the chest with a magical spear. We see quite a lot of blood, and he's on the verge of bleeding out when he makes it to the hospital for help. Thankfully, the Cloak of Levitation jumps in to protect him so he can make his escape. But, why didn't the cape just block the spear to begin with? That cloak seems to have near-omniscient knowledge of when things are about to hit Strange.
So, why couldn't it just jump in front and block the shot? Not to mention that Strange seems totally fine right after getting patched up at the hospital. That's one heck of a quick recovery, right? When Strange is going through his training, there are a boatload of other would-be wizards taking on the same drills and learning the same magic alongside him. So, where were all these folks when Kaecilius attacked the Sanctums?
