Hello children. Compounding my ennui situation was the fact that my laptop finally stopped limping along and became next to useless. Yay. So Mr. HG was kind enough to allow me to use one of his indefinitely. So double yay. (For real this time.)
I guess we need to catch up. Yes, this ennui situation seems to have become a permanent one, but I have been reading the most delicious pulp novel from the 1950′s (or ’60′s — I can’t remember right now). It’s called Black Wings Has My Angel and it seems to be some kind of crime caper. I love it. It was only $0.99 at the Kindle store, which makes it even better.
Let’s see, I’ve been working out more consistently, which really makes me incredibly happy. I beat a personal record in the strict press, and topped out at 80lbs this week. My clean did not fair so well, and though I may have swore rather too loudly and possibly flipped off an inanimate object, I have survived. Somehow.
Facebook has become real to me again, and I can once again communicate with people I don’t often see and would actually like to talk to. I also have had a headache all evening and I’m not all that impressed with it.
If I have a male friend who might need some new clothes for dating purposes, how do I get him to go shopping with me? How do I explain my intent? Oh, like this: “Hey, male friend with the name that begins with N and who may have had pizza with me last night, let’s go shopping.” I’m sure your other friends’ wives do stranger things.
All right, I need to do some other things in the real world, but I will be back. You should see the size of this keyboard! No more netbooks for me!
Did I tell you how I felt about The Avengers yet? I can’t remember the last time I blogged about a movie. I recently revisited Thor as well, as I’ve got a little thing for Loki, which sent me back into the Norse mythology archives. It had been awhile since I picked up the Prose Edda, so it’s been like a brand new adventure.
I like adventures.
I love you all. Well, only the ones who have stuck around. The rest of you suck.
