Letting the Days Go By

A blog post in the middle of my mini-vacation. Well, I say vacation because it's pretty cool having my brother Schuyler here, and I had an awesome night tonight. Honestly, work has been very shitty lately and up until four hours ago, I wasn't very happy. But tonight was awesome, with all the guitar hero, Pippintude, YouTube hilarity, and good friends. It was a nice night.

Where does that highway go to?

Anata ni Te Watashi Takute

Mentally recovering from my ongoing two straight weeks of work. For those out of the loop, I didn't have a weekend this weekend. I had to work Saturday and Sunday as we're moving into a new office. One of the downsides of a salaried position at a small company. I knew it was going to be rough, but I didn't think I'd crash so hard at the end of it.

My family's coming down this weekend. That should be fun. My brother may also come up for Anime Expo next weekend, which would be an awesome experience to have with him. This will be my first anime con, the biggest convention I've been to of three. I'm looking forward to it, but wishing I had a free weekend in between to recover. Ah well, I always say that.

I guess I just felt like writing tonight because I'm feeling rather down and I can't take any st. john's wort before bed or I won't be able to get to sleep. When I stop and think about it, there's really nothing that big to get me down, so it must just be something cyclical and chemical.

Dust Kicked Up from the Desert Floor

Oh man, what an awesome random song to stumble across. The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack was one of the first albums that sparked my love of orchestral music, along with Joe Hisaishi of course. Hmm...I really need to get around to the LOTR soundtrack...

So. New computer. Yeah. That's why you haven't heard from me in a while. That's what I was doing practically all weekend, including beating Half-Life 2 in about three days. Goddamn that's an awesome game. All in all, my sordid tale of computer woes is nearly over, and I'm not all worried about it anymore. (Work on the other hand...)

In addition, Harry Potter just gets better and better. This third book is so much more readable than the first two. I find myself thoroughly engrossed. I don't plan on finishing the next three before July 21st, but I'd like to have at least Goblet of Fire done by July 13th, when the next movie comes out. And I really need to try out this recipe for Butterbeer...

I just noticed I ended every single paragraph with elipses. Huh.
