|08:59 pm - At seven thirty-five in the morning.|
I did absolutely nothing today, largely because I've slept so little the last two nights. I couldn't stay asleep for most of Thursday night, and this morning I went to bed around 4:00, and was wide awake around nine. I took it easy most of the day, took a nap in the afternoon which has helped, and have felt generally sluggish. I decided I should get out of the house, so I took a walk and went grocery shopping afterward. Common sense tells me I should not go to Rocky Horror tonight, but I think I probably will.
Yesterday I took some time off in the afternoon to get some new glasses. I have the option of getting eyecare insurance from work, but I did the math and it costs me less simply to go to Eyemart, pay for an exam, and buy the glasses at full price. This took about two hours out of my workday, and I was glad of this, thanks to the workflow being really slow. I left mid-afternoon as things were dying down, and came back just in time to have my last hour and a half be fairly busy.
After work, of course, I saw the movie, and then I went to april_tehe's party. I didn't know anybody, but I had a pretty good, thanks in part to the extremely intoxicated dirty hippie who kept bugging me, first about what kind of music I listen to ("Oh, Zappa. Yeah, he's alt-pop, like Sabbath and Ace of Base..."), and then about Led Zepplin albums. I was entertained, mostly because everybody else was horrified by him. He accosted one guy I was talking to and called him "Nancy Bush" for liking Coldplay. Asked who Nancy Bush is, he explained that "Nancy" is easier to say than "Nazi," which is what he meant. He also railed on for a good ten minutes about how white people shouldn't give high fives ("It's not right, man! It's racist! That's what Bootsy Collins was talking about!"). It was a little intimidating when he was venting at me about Ben Folds being a sucka, but it was pretty entertaining when he was doing it to somebody else.
Anyway, I'm going to post this, and then I'm going to find something to do until Rocky Horror. I'll leave you with a few links worth checking out:
Current Mood: still groggy
I don't know if you caught it on my site, but sometime ago I said that the director of "7:35 In The Morning" may have been put on this earth to bring one of my shows to the big screen.
Aw man, I've been caught stealing links.
Yep, I saw that one on your site, bookmarked it, and then came across it yesterday when I was cleaning out my Favorites file. What a shame it is that we have to seek these little gems out. It's a great film that would appeal to both mainstream and art-snob sensibilities, but most of the people who would like it will probably never know it exists.

i almost wet myself. I think i needed that Colin, i just finished whaching "Trainspotting" and that romance link really cracked me up after an inspireing yet depressing and sometimes scarey movie. By the way, i read a chapter of a book called "Romanceing Mr Bridgerton" a while back, the chapter was linked off of something eles, don't remember and the first chapter was really funny and i loved the main character, and of course it was a bit of a mystery, so i ordered the book online to finish and it turned out to be a "romance novel" granted this one was a best selling romance novel, but it had one of those cheezy insert pictures like the one on the page and i must say this one was one of those "give me my shirt back" ones. The really sickening thing about this post is, after i bought it and was horrified to see that i had in fact ordered trash; i finshed it. ~Lindsay
Well, you know, at least you finished it. I spend too much money on books that I never read, so you have one up on me there. I've never seen Trainspotting, but I kind of want to.
