welcome to the new times, just like the old times

Internet, I would like to tell you about the perfectly lovely weekend I had, um, last weekend. Why am I talking about my weekend on Thursday, you might ask? Well. I’ll tell you.

I signed up for an online writing class a while ago, and it started last week, and the main objective of this class is to get you to write every day. There are assignments JUST LIKE IN SCHOOL, so basically all of my Hermione Granger qualities have come out in full force, which means not only do I want to write the assignments but I want to write MORE than the assignments because writing more means I WIN AT WRITING. Or something. It’s a contest, right? No? Oh.

Anyway, so I don’t know if you noticed but I’m trying to post something to my blog every day. By the time of this posting, that makes four days in a row! Which is like more days in a row than I’ve posted in a million years probably, so I guess this class is working. Once I finish my daily assignment for my writing class, then I work on a post for this blog or a book review for CBR4 (HAHAHA JUST KIDDING I’M SO BEHIND), which means I’m usually ahead of the game. I edit (can you even believe this shit has been revised, because it has) one entry a night and schedule it to post the next morning, then I start a new entry. It’s like a system! I love systems!

Anyway anyway, this past weekend was great! Almost as great as that segue! It couldn’t have worked out any better if I’d planned it and believe you me, I’ve tried to plan that kind of relaxation before and it doesn’t work at all! Just FYI.

We went out to breakfast on Saturday and, as we were sitting at our table, drinking some coffee and staring at people out the window, Joe saw some of our friends standing outside. They were about to have to wait a million hours for a table but Joe and I said NO. You will NOT do that! You will sit with us! And thus it happened, as was foretold in the ancient prophecy of breakfasts or whatever.

Joe has been working at the comic book store on Saturdays, which usually means I have Saturday afternoons all to myself for thrifting or watching Buffy or whatever the hell it is I do with my time that makes it fly by until I realize I haven’t showered yet and it’s almost 5 which is when Joe gets home and I HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING PRODUCTIVE AT ALL. Ahem. But this past Saturday, I went hiking! I already told you about that, though! This post has so many exclamation points! I love it!

Joe and I had talked about going to the movies Saturday night because, well, that’s what we do, but instead I talked him into renting movies (Moonrise Kingdom!) and ALSO renting Just Dance 4 JUST so I could do the dance to Call Me Maybe. So we drank and watched movies and played Wii and it was the PERFECT SATURDAY NIGHT for people who don’t like to NOT wear pajamas at all times and isn’t that all people? Yes, probably.

I don’t even know how we ended up killing most of Sunday because the only thing I remember doing is going to see Sleepwalk With Me. Have you seen it? It’s so good. I’ve listened to Mike Birbiglia’s comedy special of the same name AND read the book (also same name GO FIGURE) and I still enjoyed the movie. I could listen to Mike Birbiglia talk about...I don’t know, clipping his toenails, and I would still be enthralled. It’s something about his voice. I don’t even know. Wow, good story.

I think I’ll use this last paragraph of this completely thought out and totally planned post for a PSA and that is! do not, under any circumstances consume the following right before you go to bed: chili, beer, Reese Cup cupcake, Dexter, The Walking Dead. You’ll thank me later, after you don’t do that and you have an uninterrupted-by-zombie-killer-nightmare night of sleep.

  2. Awesome that you are writing more! I need to work on doing that, too. You should submit something to Zoetrope All-Story(great magazine!)...Excited to hear Sleepwalk With Me is good, I've been looking forward to seeing this all Summer! The "What I Should Have Said Was Nothing" DVD is one of my favorites.

  3. I keep saying I want to invite people over for dinner more often, but then I never follow through because having people over for dinner requires wearing something other than my jim jams and FUCK THAT NOISE.
