Insert Twilight Zone Music Here…

It always freaks me out when I hear about something very random two times or more in the same day. How does that happen? It’s just freaky. It happened to me not once or twice, but three times yesterday! That is just very, very strange.

Natalie and I went to see Jersey Girl yesterday. The Kevin Smith factor got us there, but it was different than his usual style. It was cute, it made me laugh, it made me get misty-eyed at least two times (yeah, not your typical Kevin Smith movie at all…), and it was just generally good. Matt Damon and Jason Lee made their required appearances – er, in the movie, not in the theater itself. Yeah, I wish. Anyways, it was a nice break in an otherwise very busy day, worth the matinee ticket price.

During the movie, the topic of the movie “Dirty Dancing” came up. Ben’s character quotes a line from the film to Gertie, saying “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” in his best Patrick Swayze voice.

Later in the day, I was at my parent’s house, and my Mom commented on how there are numerous planets lined up in the sky and visible to the naked eye right now. I got back in my car and Kymberlie called to let me know that she was on her way over to the house. In the conversation, she asks me if I knew that there are all these planets that are visible right now. What?!? I am amused, as I had just been talking about that three minutes earlier.

Kymberlie and I head over to Wal-Mart, and brought home the Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture game. While we played the game, guess what question comes up in the movie category? Not just a reference to Dirty Dancing. Oh no. That would just be amusing. There is actually a question in the game that asks what film has the line “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” What?!? How random is that?!?

I immediately commented on the fact that that line was in “Jersey Girl” and it was therefore freaky-weird.

Later in the game, a question comes up about “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the song that Cameron Diaz sings at the karaoke bar. Just to distract Kymberlie, and hopefully have a shot at winning the game, I ask her what the name of the song is from the “Lobster scene” in the movie – the one where everyone is sitting in the restaurant singing along. You know, “Each morning I wake up … I *mutter something mutter* makeup …” Bam! It comes to me. “I say a little prayer for you…” Whew! That has been bugging me for days. I thought I was going to have to rent the movie just to remember the song!

After Kymberlie left for home, I couldn’t sleep (what a surprise!) so I decided to read a few blogs. I could not stop laughing when I came across Natalie’s post asking for the name to the exact same song!

Three times in one day. Damn. That’s just weird. Is it just me, or does this happen to everyone? Quite the prelude to April Fool’s Day.
