I decided I was going to start my day off on the right foot this morning.
A couple months ago, I made an appointment with my doctor to get a physical done (I know what you're thinking, "But Dr. Patchbeard, you ARE a doctor! It's in your name!" I'm not that kind of doctor). That appointment was this morning. I was kind of stressing about it, leading up to it. I was convinced I wouldn't be up in time (especially since I worked late last night), and so I was sure to set alarms this morning and rushed my morning routine to make sure I'd be there on time.
I would have been there on time, too, if the appointment had been at 10:45 like I thought. As it turns out, however, my appointment was for 9:15.
I really have no idea how I could have mixed up the times like that, considering I put the appointment in my phone's calendar when I set it up. Regardless, I was obviously too late to get in to see the doctor.
So as I got in my car to come home, I thought to myself, "What should I do instead of getting my junk fondled?" The first thing that came to my mind was to write a blog. I figured people wouldn't be terribly interested in my doctor's appointment, so let's talk about the movie I watched last night.
As I got home last night, my roommate had just started a movie, and it looked pretty interesting so I sat down and watched it with him. I had no idea what it was at first, but instantly recognized Peter Sellers as the star.
I eventually had to ask my roommate what we were watching. It was The Party, from 1968. As we got more into the movie, I was laughing harder and harder at this situations Sellers' character, Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi was able to get himself into.
The hammered waiter also played an excellent role.
To avoid spoiling it for you, I'm not going to outline the movie. I will say, however, that if you're a fan of film and like to laugh, this is a movie you need to watch.
The party itself embodies all things the classiest parties would be. Hollywood stars, musicians, suits, caviar, a fantastic dinner, free flowing alcohol, cigars, a jazz quartet, and... Birdie Num Nums...
This film is responsible for my new goal in life: To attend a party where entertainment is provided by a jazz quartet.
In case you're wondering, it IS on Netflix (this is often a defining factor of whether or not I'll watch a movie), so watch it!
In the meantime, what's the craziest party you've ever been to?
