So last night amidst a haze of alcohol and back pain medication (totally mixed, totally not supposed to do that and it totally worked, so whatever), I found myself stretched out on the bed, watching The Time Traveler's Wife. I can't recall everything about the movie, but I have a feeling I would've enjoyed it sufficiently less if I'd been sober and clear-headed and that is saying something because I didn't really enjoy it at all. I never read the book, but I'd read enough about the book and the movie to get the basic idea of what the story was about - dude is a time-traveler and he gets married and that causes some issues. Go figure. The set up in the movie was a little confusing and I never really understood where he was in time or what exactly made him travel or why Eric Bana is such a bad actor. But with all that said, I did watch it to the very end and it really made me think about time travel. (Okay - the Flexeril, prescription strength motrin and bourbon might've contributed to my interest in time travel as well.)
But I kept wondering - would I want to time travel? Would I want to be like this guy in the movie or that guy in Quantum Leap? (Quantum Leap - AWESOME show.) I think my answer is yes. Maybe.
I'm pretty sure I'd have no trouble going back in time - fix some mistakes, do some things exactly the same way, pick up some lottery numbers, that kind of thing. (BTW - that was the biggest problem I had in the movie. He does use his time travel to win the lottery - once - and it was only when it was worth five million. What a waste. Never play the lottery unless its up to 8 figures.) But I'm not sure I'd wanna jump ahead in time and see where I was going and what was gonna happen. I'm not sure I wanna look ten years into the future and see what's waiting for me because it might scare the crap out of me.
How about you? You wanna jump ten years ahead and see what's in store for you?

Tristan Prettyman. She's from San Diego. She surfs. She's hot. She probably dreams about me because I am obviously her perfect match.
