Day 87-- on DVD overlaps / a conversation / a poem

Something I always laughed about: in college, you could go to various students' rooms and--if they owned DVDs--you were bound to find at least three of the following:
-Dumb and Dumber
-Aladdin
-the Incredibles
-any of the Lord of the Rings films
-Top Gun
-Remember the Titans
-Miss Congeniality
-Knight's Tale
-Ever After
-Donnie Darko (if they're edgy students...edgy!)
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (if they're hipster students)
-the Matrix
-something with either Chris Farley or Adam Sandler (except for Punch-Drunk Love)

What you have is basically 75% of Geneva's campus owning the same DVD collection. Awesome. Most of them are in Full-Frame, too. This is most certainly one of my exaggerations, but there isn't just a kernel of truth--it's more like a lodestone.

Why is this?

At the calendar kiosk:

"Day by Day Calendar, this is Jason."
"Is this the man of the house?"
"..."
"..."
"I'm selling calendars."
"Oh, sorry."

A poem, written by me at the calendar kiosk

"Ham (a love story)"

Ham.

Ham.
Ham.
Ham.
Ham.
Ham.
Ham.
Cheese.

I didn't own any of these in college, and only own 1 (LOTR) now. But J. and I only own about 10 movies, half of which are VHS, so we're atypical.
