The Big “D” is not just in Texas these days.
Let’s see how I am doing on The Quiz
– sad? Check
– tired often? Check
– shows little interest in activities that were once enjoyed? Check
– spends a lot of time alone? Check
I think that I need go no further.
My life right now is like that of a hamster that runs around on a wheel going nowhere. Check that. If I was that hamster at least I’d be in great shape. No, my life is more like the hamster who sits in the corner cramming wood chips into his mouth for no apparent reason.
Being the type of person who believes that medication is meant for hangovers, diarrhea, or allergies, I’m not about to run out to get the latest happy pill being marketed on the tv. I’ve had fits of depression in the past, and this too will pass.
Want To Guess If I Chose The Polyphonic Spree Over Staying Home Alone?
Fear not, it’s not a sucker’s bet. I just couldn’t mind the thought of being around a bunch of other people last night; that is also the reason that I didn’t swing by George’s either.
I worked until 6pm, hit my favorite “local” Chinese buffet on the way home (fucking kick-ass hot Hunan Chicken was great!), and then returned to Paulie’s House of Bikram Yoga where I caught up on my Daily Shows and watched last night’s Top Chef (as a side-note spoiler I was saddened to see Micah get ousted because she fondly reminded me of one my ex-girlfriends) before dropping off to Sleepyland.

As night falls reddish light is cast upon my iMac.
This is my creative hub. This is where I wish I spent more time.
Last night I wanted a beer. Not just any beer, but one of the beers that I had in the basement refrigerator behind the bar. Who was I to deprive a depressed man such a simple wish?
As I went behind the bar I saw something that horrified all of my senses. Apparently when I made the same trip the previous night my attempt to close the refrigerator door completely failed and went unnoticed. Thus the refrigerator door had been completely open all night and day and the beer inside was far from cold. Rats!
I also learned that it is impossible to expect a small refrigerator to replace a house’s air conditioning unit. Although that might explain why the house was a little cooler when I returned from work…
Here’s Something Else I Didn’t Expect
I received an email from Netflix alerting me that they are lowering the price of my subscription. That’s right, I said lowering!
How they knew that I was seriously considering kicking them to the curb (due to my own non-use of their services), I will never know.
Who’s up for a Weekend at Bernie’s marathon?
Don’t Cry For Me Argentina
– Today my new lens is to arrive (although admittedly not the one I wanted to buy)
– Tomorrow is Friday
– Sunday is Canada Day
– Sunday also marks the beginning of my birth month (can you say “birthday gift”? I knew you could)
I am sure that there are more reasons, but I need to get to work
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – if you haven’t figured it out by now then you haven’t been reading
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Dinosaur Jr. — “Almost Ready” (J. Mascis if a fucking guitar genius)
Website Of The Day – If you are an Internet Ancient like me then you might remember the AltaVista search engine. Did you know that it still exists?
Exercise (b)Log – need you ask?
