The Mirror Maker

Five minutes ago I finished Paper Towns. I have put off reading it for nearly a month based solely on the fact that I was very afraid I would not enjoy it as much as I had heard everyone else had.  Thankfully my fears were very misplaced. John Green has crafted an amazing novel full of over powering heart, emotion and genuine happiness. In my opinion there are many people in our lives similar to the characters in this story, the fun part I imagine is figuring out which one we turn out to be. 

Random Fact Spigelman is the German word for Mirror Maker, as well as one of the driving characters surname. Truly a must read.

I hate that.

I remember thinking earlier that I was really hungry. That was when I woke up. (At two pm this afternoon.) And then I remembered it was payday thursday, not to be confused by Pay day friday which is a lyric to a country song. So I took a shower and got dressed and eventually made my way down to work and picked up and cashed said pay. (sadly not very much money. but what can one expect?) After the check was cashed I decided to do some grocery shopping to hopefully appease the growling in my stomach although I did purchase some food I mostly purchased Liquids. 2 gallons of Iced Tea,1 gallon of Sunny D and  1 quart of Lemonade, I like to mix the Lemonade and iced tea to make my own arnold palmers. the point is that it is now ten after 8 in the evening and I still haven't eaten a damn thing... I hate that. 

Random impulse rental:
I have been watching a series of four trailers in the electronics department of my store for a little over two months I had seen all but one of the films being advertised and it has bothered me more and more each day that I hadn't seen the Spiderwick chronicles, so today on a whim I rented it, and watched it. It's cute. Reminded me of something my mother would no doubt enjoy.

Can Do!!!

I went into work knowing that I would be getting off early because I had sometime to cut. I did not realize some time would be four and a half freaking hours. The earliest I have to be back to work is Friday night at midnight. So Here I am at 1:15 am with with the next seventy hours and forty five minutes ahead of me. What ever shall I do. Oh Watch movies play Fable 2, sleep glorious beautiful warm uninterrupted hours of sleep and basically accomplish nothing?Can Do!!!!

Random Joke:  Stayin' Alive
A cowboy told his grandson the secret to a long life.

He said, "You gotta sprinkle a little gunpowder on your oatmeal, see. If you do, you'll live to a nice ripe old age."

So the cowboy did this religiously every day, and sure enough, lived to the nice ripe old age of 96.

When he died he left behind 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren

...and a 16 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.

Modern Marvels???

One significant difference between my annoying roommate and myself. (Aside from the consideration for others gene that he lacks.) And his unbelievable disgusting lack of manners. Is the nonsense that I catch him watching on TV. Right now he is watching the history channel, I have no prob with that because I know I have found myself staring at that channel for an hour or more at a time. I just don't understand the car shows. shrug. It might be that when I hear a title like Modern Marvels I think of a comic book company as opposed to a supercharged engine... I can be funny that way.
***Edit: Random update on Fable II that I almost forgot, in the game I have two wives and three children and on one of my trips to visit one of my wives there was a letter waiting for me stating that someone was going to try and blackmail me by telling said wives that they were not my one and only. How do i solve this blackmail problem, I meet the middle-man that I am supposed to give the requested amount to, and I shoot him, in the face. Problem solved.

Random Fact of the Day... I am wearing pants!!!!!

The Little Things

So while waiting for a phone call today I was playing Fable 2 and stumbled across this Quote:  "This is indigo of the rare montoya. You have crushed it's Flowers. Prepare to dye." The Actual quote from the movie is Hello. "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." the quote is from one of my all time favorite movies, The Princess Bride. coming across the quote was completely random but now I have to be sure to pay even more attention... This might be the greatest game ever... 
... You guys would have got that too right? I mean it isn't completely random. right?

 In random news did you know Michael Crichton died from Cancer complications yesterday??? No lie. 

Random Thought of the Day. 
Why do you put sweaters on your dog while he is inside your house and then take it off when they go out into the cold?

It's funny watching movies that I enjoyed as a child again as an adult, some of them are just as amazing as I remember and others are so terrible I can hardly sit thru them. Today I had the rare occurrence where I had both reactions with the same character in two movies. I watched Short Circuit and the sequel today, the Original is just as amazing as I remember and the sequel was a little difficult to sit thru. But in the end still a lot of fun.

Random Fact:
They are currently developing a Revamped Short Circuit movie due some time in 2010. that can't possibly be a good thing...

All hallows Day

Today is supposed to be a day of remembrance, unfortunately the only thing I can remember is how ridiculous my brother and his wife look dressed in drag. go figure. These are the images that will haunt my nightmares for years to come. My therapist thanks you. 

Random side note:
technically I should be writing an actual story right now. look at how you all let me slack off, bad form.
