In 2 hours, I will be leaving the office and heading for San Francisco.
The day is dragging ass.
Watching a piece of crap movie (Room 6) which was not worth the cost of the disk it was printed on, even though I saw it for free. If I could get the intermittent spurts of life I spent watching it back, I would, but I can't.
God, this movie was horrible. Don't ever rent it. I'm surprised the clerk didn't laugh at me when I put it on the counter.
Ah well, at least the clothes are clean and put away. The price one pays for a clean room.
No spoilers here, folks. Just wanted to say I read it, and please do the same. Friggin awesome.
Time taken: from 1:45-6:30 friday, and 1a to 2:40 Sunday
Got the new Harry Potter book.
Too sleepy to read.
Well, maybe just a peek...
I have passes to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but here's the catch- it's on June 28 (way early- SWEET!) and not in Chicago. The cities that it will be screening in are Minneapolis/St. Paul, Portland, Sacramento, Pittsburg, Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, and Raleigh Durham. Seats (as with all premieres) are on a first come, first served basis, so get there early and camp out.
If you know of someone or live in one of these cities (or near one of these cities), you're welcome to it. Let me know and I'll send you the PDF.
Chicagoans, anybody up for a drive to Minneapolis, btw?
I am clean, my hair is washed, and I am happily fed.
I love Chicago.
Good grief, I hate nature.
I wish I could find a better way to describe it. But I cant. Hate is the only thing that comes to mind.
Here are a few reasons why...
1- if you are sending your kids on a 2 hour bus ride, do NOT give them a gallon of water when they will be riding on a school bus. It's not pretty, nor do I enjoy hearing, "I have to go to the bathroom!" for 20 minutes straight.
2- You should not have to walk more than 2 minutes to get your food. Period. The only time I should have to emerge from my house to be fed is to visit a grocery store or restaraunt. Conversely, if there is a kitchen, there should be food in it. No food = not a kitchen. Even the government knows this. This is why we have food stamps.
3- Water should not smell like eggs, nor should the taste of it make you gag. Water is a colorless, tasteless substance. Maintain its integrity. Also, the point of a shower is to be clean. If the water smells like you have had a run-in with a skunk, you are not clean. I don't care how much soap one uses.
4- Little kids smell funny. Particularly with the combination of #3.
5- A twin bed is not a good idea for anyone over the age of 10. Also, its not a real mattress if it has no springs, it is simply an oversized crib mattress made for adults.
6- Little kids do not need to be informed of weather conditions. They need to be told where to go in case of an emergency, and that is all. Anything else should be accompanied by a complementary bottle of Tequila for the teachers to sooth their skulls from all the questions that ensue.
7- To a kid, normal wake up time is the ass-crack of dawn. And they are loud about it.
8- Spiders do not belong in showers.
9- Geology should not involve a 2-hour hike to climb up more fucking rocks.
10- Pond mucking is NOT a fucking activity. It IS fucking disgusting. Any activity where you can pick up the remains of a dead snake does not count as educational, nor does it count as fun. Scooping crap out of the lake is not educational. In fact, it IS the job you get when you DONT have an education.
That is all...for now.
