So you realize that your haircuts are *one ninth* as expensive as mine...

Someone said something to me the other day.

Some of you know the full scope of the rating scale that I use for rating movies; some of you don't. For those of you who don't know the full meaning of the scale, suffice it to say that any number of minutes means that I enjoyed a movie -- there's a different scale for movies that I don't enjoy. 60 minutes is the highest rating a movie can receive.

Someone pointed out to me that I have rarely rated anything over 15 or 20 minutes. Hence, I must be one heckuva an impatient person.

Actually, this is not the case. I'm a very patient person.

It's just a question of scale and comparison.

So Perk, when you find that one special woman who makes everything else worthwhile, that one person who makes everywhere feel like home, that soulmate who never leaves your side -- regardless of physical location -- then you'll understand how your standards can get set arbitrarily high.

That is why I cannot rate movies very high; my standards have been set too high.
