More Books, Science, and People to Admire

Last night I stayed up till midnight working on an advertisement project for a family member.
One hour on a flyer. But it looks good!

Today was a little dull.
I moved everything into one room early this morning. Both cats, dog, and their stuff, PLUS mine. Good thing the bird was already in there. The pest control guy came over briefly. He had I hate my job across his forehead, so I let him skip my room like an idiot. The whole point was mainly my room so I could feel safe.
He barely stayed five minutes. After a little over an hour, I moved everything back into place. That was my workout for the day.

The cats turned 2 today. I gave them their birthday treat. Wet food, beef flavor. They cleaned most of the bowls, but the wet food didn’t stay for long in their tummies. I’ve lost count of how many stains are on the carpet. I’d rather not think about it.

I finished Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris about two days ago, or maybe yesterday. Then I started on Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern; that’s the first book in 2011 I’ve put down. Today I started on Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson; I’ve been meaning to read it for a couple years now, I just never got around to it. I’m in the middle of the book; it’s hard to put down. I love books like that. It’s not everyday you find a book you can’t put down. Most of the books nowadays are crap. Why? Because now, anybody can publish a book no matter how shitty it is. Books nowadays are so cliché. Every now and then, I’ll come across a good one.

Science is boring and interesting. Maybe I’ve been looking at different parts, but I’m not a scientist. I’m in love with this $6 magazine, Scientific American. I usually don’t spend more than $4 on a magazine unless it has something to do with Johnny Depp; so this is a damn-good magazine.

I completely forgot about MysteryGuitarMan coming to The House of Blues tonight. The tickets were cheap too (like $10-15). I don’t really give a damn about the DigiTour stuff; I just wanted to see Joe Penna. I have no idea what they would be doing, I just wanted to be there. The guy is awesome with his video editing skills. He’s so interesting on Youtube, I never miss a single tweet, video, picture, etc. I’d admire his talent.
I will forever whine about missing this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Internet and Labor

I got up at 2pm today.
I only got up because I had to open the door for my mom who had just come home from work. Otherwise, I would have stayed in bed. I’m glad I got up though; I love having Honey Nut Cheerios every morning.

I checked some things on the internet after I got up: Yahoo news (some football player is too smart to be a football player; the government doesn’t care that radioactive waste is being dumped into drinking water), Facebook notifications (0), and the latest on Johnny Depp. I got distracted on the latter (happens a lot). I learned more about him from exclusive interviews. I didn’t seem to care about the privacy of his children before, which is why I had a few photos of them on my Flickr album. I removed them all. He works so hard to keep them out of the media; I respect that. If I come across photos of his children on a fan site or whatever, sure I will save them to my computer, but I won’t post them.

My mom and I spent the rest of the day putting our beds together. We moved in our new place in April 2010. We just now set up our beds, 11 months later. You have to take in to consideration two things: (1) I’m such a weakling, I can’t lift a damn thing, and (2) My mom is the complete opposite, and very intelligent, but beds are not her forte.
It took hours putting up the beds, but we (she) did it. Afterwards I took a long, lukewarm shower. I hate it when I sweat. So I tend to avoid any and every activity that involves sweating. But I was tired of sleeping so low to the ground, so I helped.

Yesterday I skipped church. I actually overslept. I had no intentions of going to church (I never do), but a friend from church asked me on Facebook (she does this about every other week) to come, so I told her I would try. I set my alarm for 8am, and it went off at 8am. I got up at 8am and turned the alarm off and went back to bed. I woke up again (much later) and realized I overslept. This happens every time I attempt to go to church. I haven’t been to church in at least six months. I felt bad for letting my friend down, and I told her so. I also told her I would try harder next Sunday.
Reasons why I don’t go to church:
(1) I’m agnostic.
(2) I hate church.
(3) I hate leaving the house.
(4) I love to sleep in and I’m not a morning person.
(5) Every time I go to church, the people look at me weird, like the devil just walked in or something.
(6) I don’t like spending hours in the same spot in a place where I feel uncomfortable.
(7) I don’t know what they’re so happy about or why.
I’ll try next Sunday.

Right now I need to finish this Sudoku puzzle, and then read a little. I’m reading Lottery by Patricia Wood. It’s a great book about this mentally-challenged guy in his late 30s who won the lottery.
I’d like to watch a movie after that, but I already watched the two Netflix DVDs. The first movie, Idiocracy, is like the Matrix; it’s going to happen someday unfortunately. The second movie, Knight and Day, was fun to watch; it’s the second movie I can remember watching that has sort of a twisted ending. The first was The Tourist.
I have a little over 300 movies (DVD and VHS), but there really isn’t anything I’d like to see again tonight. I don’t know, I’ll have to look again.
Maybe I’ll just finish my book tonight instead.
