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:
- What the hell is making my smile at 7:35 in the Morning? (Short film, probably only for those with broadband).
- I'm not really a fan of rap music, but y'all should check out the explicit content only version of N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton.
- I never really underderstood the point of romance novels either, but this gallery of romance novel covers makes me want to pick up a copy of You're Dead, and That's Hot by Julie Hardwood.
