First off, a thousand wonderful returns and birthday wishes to my dear friend theevilearl
! Happy Birthday, Lesley! You are much loved, my Shostakovich-obsessed friend! =^)
Secondly, I have to note that the Sloganizer dealio in my LJ profile said today: "Don't play with fire; play with Dirk Nowitzki". Friggen fantastic!
I also got to see France kick Spain's ass in the Round of 16 today! Brilliant! France hasn't been playing too well in this World Cup and since its Zidane's last year, I'd like to see them advance a little more. Unfortunately, since they won, they now get to face Brazil. Sucks. Germany v. Argentina next!! WOOT!
Aside from eating waay too many wings and having a blast at Lesley's party tonight, I was feeling uneasy. It seems that the feeling of connectedness and productivity that I had when I was in MD evaporated like so much mist when I walked back in the doors here. I suppose it was coming back to all the bills and rent I have to pay, whereas back in MD, I had some sense of running around DC a lot interviewing for various jobs and really feeling like I was on the brink of actually getting one. On driving back in the torrential rain, all I could think of was how much mail I have waiting for me and how I need to get my loans consolidated in like, the next three days or else I die. Oh, and apparently my roommate has been borrowing my DVDs without my permission, since I found my Incredibles DVD in the wrong place on my DVD stand.
Now, with stuff like that, I normally wouldn't give a fuck. All I ask, is that you effing ask me. I don't care if you borrow a MILLION DVDs; I just want to know where they are. I'm meticulous enough to know and smart enough to see a gap in my DVDs where I know one was missing. All of a sudden, its miraculously returned? WTF? Just ask me! ARgh! It makes me feel like Spocko here when he gets 404'd!
In other news, I haven't watched WWE in a LOOONG time but the other night I turned it on and it looked like they finally started giving the fans what they want! All of a sudden, JR has been rehired, Coach fired, Rob Van Dam has the ECW AND the WWE US Titles and Degeneration X has been reunited!!! OMG HOLY SH*T WTFBBQ!!! Apparently, when I watch on a regular basis, they decide to crap on all of my fave wrestlers and create horrible storylines; when I stop watching, they get HHH and Shawn Michaels back together to do hilairous imitations of the McMahon's and dump horse manure on them and their dipstick Spirit Squad. Absolutely phenomenal. Long live DX
So, we'll see how I feel tomorrow. A good night's sleep will help. I hate feeling like I'm riding this fine ragged line between together and unhinged...
P.S. For all of my X-Men fans out there, This
is really f*cking funny. *gigglesnort*
