It's been a busy week. I'm finally getting out on my own. I've spent the last 17 years bottled away in my parents' basement; I don't even remember what it's like to wake up to sun filtering in through the window. So this is a definite positive. I'm going to be living in with some friends, which makes it all that much sweeter.
Attended a birthday party where the guest of honour got sick and spent so long in the bathroom panting and wheezing he jacked up the bathroom's temperature by 5 degrees and came out sopping wet. The bathroom was like the inside of a cave. Then there's this idiot.
I honestly cannot explain this picture. But Rock Band 2 ensued and the world was right again.
I've spent the last two weeks with copious amounts of booze, weed or both in my system. I know now what I've been missing... about two weeks of this month, to be precise. Memory of the inbetweenies is quite spotty. I only remember the party because I was sent the photos.
I'm glad I got to unwind. Staying in and doing nothing is good on paper. But actually doing it covers about two hours of time; three, tops. Smegging around is really a short term activity. Long stretches of time demand a broader, slightly busier game plan. Even if you break up the hours of smegginess with a game of cards or otherwise events of general asshattery.
And, no. I am not one of those people that sits at his computer and dicks with Facebook for fifteen hours. I literally can't stay on a website for more than five minutes, unless it's Wikipedia. I can read Wikipedia articles for hours. My XBOX360 is also decent for passing the time. World of Warcraft used to be a passable diversion, but it's lost its love. And gained some ARGH I WANT TO KILL YOU. So, I'm done with that game.
I also am not a huge TV watcher. Used to be in my single-digits. Bugs Bunny, the Simpsons, Tiny Toons, Degrassi High - anything that was on, I would watch. The Cosby Show, Murphy Brown, Roseanne, Family Matters, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air; the sky was the limit. Now... I watch a little CSI or Family Guy now and then. Or I'll stare blankly at the screen when I'm wasted, but that's about it. It's time for us to stop thinking of TV as "having a good time". TV is for when there is no good time to be had and you need something to assist in tossing your brain out the window.
Anyway, that's about it for me this time. My rambling hasn't been cohesive today, both online and off. Toodles.
