So, I have been lax in mentioning I have a new boyfriend. His name is Kevin McKidd. I didn’t realize that he was in an old favorite movie of mine, Trainspotting.
Kevin is the shaggy dork next to Ewan McGregor
He plays Tommy, the clean cut athletic character who finally breaks down and tries heroin after his girlfriend dumps him. He ends up becoming a junkie, gets HIV and dies. Oh, by the way, if you haven’t seen the movie, that was what we call a spoiler.
This reminds me of a story about me that I heard from an old college friend. Apparently, after I dropped out of school, a rumor began to spread that I had AIDS. Apparently a deaf girl heard it from someone that I knew. Yeah, a deaf girl heard it which is part of the reason why it’s so funny. I was not so much concerned that I had AIDS, but rather, more concerned with whether I had fun getting it.
Even funnier, the deaf girl heard it from someone I knew in college named John O., which is not the John O. that I knew in college that has commented on my blog. Small world, huh?
