a special boy
Okay so Wednesday and Thursday nights I got like three hours of sleep each night. Thursday, sorted through a bunch of my old Legos at the parents' house, and had Thanksgiving dinner with my parents and the uncles. Really missed not having my sister around, but, as I doubt I've actually mentioned in here yet, she's working in India for the next several months. |
Another thing I probably neglected to mention - I recently discovered that much of my health problems in the last year or two seem to be the result of my developing lactose intolerance. This Thanksgiving I discovered that when the lactase pills say "take with the first bite of food", they really mean that first bite part. Eat half a piece of chocolate cake, then take the pill before finishing it? Still spend the next day wondering if I'm gonna throw up.
And that whole sickly Friday was spent bargain-hunting with my mom. It's become a tradition for us to participate in the ridiculous, crowded early-morning sales and I found some exceptional stuff, some extremely cheap DVDs/VHS/video games, useful art/hobby supplies, a gorgeous flat-panel monitor at an amazing price, and a brown pinstriped suit that is probably one of the most fly garments I could get away with wearing. Also I'm pretty sure I've lost weight, based on how well a smaller size of relatively slim cut jeans fit me.
A bunch of the video and video-game (mostly used) finds from Friday are shown below, inside the cut.
OF PARTICULAR INTEREST TO ahvia BECAUSE I AM A JERK BUT REALLY I AM GOING TO WATCH IT SERIOUSLY I HAVE TO NOW
( junkCollapse )
Ok so anyway after getting back to NYC on Friday night I went to bed and slept for 24 hours. Seriously. It was insane. I woke up in the early morning today, barely realizing I'd skipped a day.
Today I saw The Fountain with roommate Chris and I was moderately disappointed. I guess it was worth seeing, but I found the pacing to be too slow and the whole sense of story was too disjointed. It's like Aronofsky set out to make a movie without a beginning or end, but instead it went end, middle, middle, beginning, middle, end, middle, end, end.
Man, web page/graphics work really is a drag. But I'm trying to get some content up, and a structure to easily slot in some more.
The new Achewood is brilliant.
Also, I am reading the Fullmetal Alchemist manga now, up to about chapter 40. Once I got into the mid-thirties, it seems that Hiromu Arakawa is intent on making me cry. Enjoying it, though.
No conclusion to this update. HOPEFULLY if I get that personal web stuff done I will find a new place for my blogging that will function as both a frontpage updates log and the kind of quick personal notes that I used to keep here.
