You're a much better person than I

One of my favorite movies is High Fidelity, and one of my favorite scenes in that movie is when record store owner John Cusack fantasizes about cold-cocking a particularly obnoxious Tim Robbins in the mouth with a phone--and not some namby-pamby little cell, but with the base of one of those good old 1940s black metal ones. Teeth visibly go flying, followed by frenetic Jack Black who jumps over the counter and starts beating him severely. Then he looks up, and the daydream is over....

Anyhoo, that's what my reaction would have been to this situation, and it's proof why Jen is a far better person than yours truly.

UPDATE: D'Oh! Link fixed. My bad.

You know, John Cusack rarely misses. I loved that scene and the one where he's talking to his ex and convincing her that her "Steven Segal ponytail" boyfriend is no good for her.

And Jack Black was fantastic.

What am I? A freakin' movie critic now? Sorry.

Kinda hard to have that kind of reaction to your new roommate - thanks for the idea though, I'll hold it in reserve after I've known her longer. ;-) Although that is a classic scene from an entertaining movie. True enough that John Cusack rarely misses.

There is no great genius without some touch of madness.
