So, Vicki got all weird on me last week. "You can't get the mail when to comes. I'm expecting something and you can't see it!" she said.
"Um, okay..." I thoughtfully replied.
So then, one day we were going to go get some groceries after I was done with work and she says "Well, do you want to go buy groceries or would you rather just go out to dinner?"
Since I am the cook in the house and I was tired, I opted for going out to dinner.
"What's the occasion?" I asked.
She was very excited. "I finally got you this thing I have been looking for for like a year!"
Needless to say I was very curious about this.
So, what was the mystery thing? A copy of The Decline of Western Civilization, Part III! She was looking around online for a long time trying to find a copy, before finally just writing to Penelope Spheeris. Penelope sent a tape and a poster (which I am totally getting framed)! How cool is that!
I didn't think I'd ever see that movie again, it was a lot of fun to reminisce about the filming, and I'm sure Vicki got tired of all my stories as we watched the tape.
It was a really cool surprise.
