Subtitled: I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.
Thursday: got up eaaaarly in the morning, to get the bread out of the bread machine. Went to Bever-family-Thanksgiving. Read Lord of the Rings, ate, came home, slept. Watched Goldmember
. which means that I am at least ten IQ points worse off than I was before.
My life is the poorer for having seen Goldmember
. But we did follow it up with Lilo and Stitch
, which is the greatest Disney movie in recent memory. I laughed, I cried. Several times. If you haven't seen it, you must. You must.
"This is my family. I found it myself. It's little, and it's broken, but it's still good...Yeah. Still good."
Got up early this morning and went shopping at Best Buy, because they had a D-Link Wireless router on sale for $50, which was way cheaper than the access points normally are. We got the last one. And a wireless card for my laptop. And some wireless headphones, which I have to take back because they're missing the power adapter. And then I said "Hey, Matt? Weren't we going to look at TV's?" Because, you see, the one we have is fifteen years or more old, and it's got like three inches on each side that are spread off the screen. Daddy says all the resistors are burnt out. So you can't see the numbers in the video games, how sad is that?
So, just so that Matt can play blitzball in FFX (since he keeps losing because he can't see the numbers to shoot), we got a new TV. Okay, we got it so I could see the two inches on the side of the screen for my movies as well. It's just...generally exciting.
Because it's a 32" flat-screen (not flat-panel), HDTV, and it's byootiful
Even better, Daddy put a new floor in the kitchen. It's byootiful too. This is a good life. Except that I haven't gotten anything done in the last few days. Nothing of any value at all. I really, really, really need to do some notes...I guess tomorrow, maybe, I'll have time. I hope so. I don't want to fail these two last exams.
Roger Rabbit's on the TV. I'm outta here to watch it. I love this movie.
