the weekday loop

Wake up… late… around one in the afternoon… no, wait… wake up a couple times before then… mainly to check the clock… then immediately go back to sleep… lose track of time… dream… lose yourself in those dreams… then wake up late.

Lounge… sit around doing something you think is productive… rip those discs you received in the mail… or read a book… or watch an awful judge show on the tele… you have a little less than an hour to do this.

2:15… a marked point in the day’s rotation… get that coffee brewed… 4 cups for the mug… 6 cups worth of grounds… tastes a bit stronger… a pleasant afternoon buzz.

Eat… if you have time and/or showered last nite… shower… if you didn’t last nite… mainly rinse and shampoo… dry off… comb your hair… dress… drive off… don’t forget your coffee mug. Your other arsenal for a day at work that sleeps with you in the apartment: wallet, keys, cigs, watch, 310, headphones… don’t forget those either.

Drive… onto the freeway… off the freeway… work’s not too far with those freeways. Depending on how close to the half past two you were leaving the apartment will determine how close to the three you’re going to be when you arrive at work.

Work… eight hours… breaks are at five, six-thirty, eight and nine-thirty… to allow you decently spaced intervals of not staring into a screen with a keyboard and mouse attached to your fingertips.

The only caloric intake you will have at work includes: deliciously-brewed coffee from home and vending machine snacks for a quarter (most likely a Twix or a Snickers bar or both with the addition of a bag of chips depending on the hunger level). Water will be drank constantly.

Eleven… drive straight home unless you have a visit to the bank or grocery store to tend to… your only full meal is waiting for you at home.

Watch a disc that arrived in the mail or obtained thru renting… if nothing new is available… settle for something in the existing collection… spend the rest of the night watching the disc and drinking antioxidant-filled tea… snack a little while you enjoy viewing the disc on your notebook computer… then ready yourself for bed.

Read… or tire yourself by browsing the internet… when you feel worn… sleep… late.

Repeat this process starting the nite of Sunday on thru Friday. Relax. The new and improved loop will be executed in January.

the r&r

Today is the last day of my 4-day weekend. I think I’m going to watch X3 in its entirety. I’ve already wasted a few hours of my day just browsing the internet. I’m just relaxing on this lovely Sunday. Tomorrow, I return to work. This week coming up, I get all the paperwork I need for nursing squared away. Rent’s due soon, but other than that, this is the good life.

Movies coming soon that’ll most likely be good, better or badass:

  • Spider-Man 3 (the link has Venom footage)
  • Transformers
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Factory Girl
  • Bee Movie

And being released on DVD for this guy to rent on Tuesday:

  • Superman Returns
  • Clerks 2

The entertainment industry will continue to evolve the human species into couch potatoes.

the two days paid four off total


I have been getting tons of sleep over this break, and I absolutely dig it.

I saw The Fountain in the theatre last nite. I’ll say it was good but not spectacular. I would definitely watch it again when it’s released on DVD. It’s very visually-appealing (which makes the movie) and has similar elements from previous Aronofsky movies.
There were people were handing out surveys at the entrance of the movie. I thought they did that for pre-screeners. Ah well. I wasn’t expecting too much from the movie. It was a great idea with a decent execution.

Other good flicks I’ve watched over this Thanksgiving vacation ’cause I’ve become a movie addict this past year: Cars, Over The Hedge, Elizabethtown, The Producers, and The Da Vinci Code. Blockbuster’s Total Access pwnz!

I’ve been one lazy SOB these past few days.

the bad karma

I’m hoping his accounts are frozen or in jeopardy before the shopping season is in full swing ’cause that would be completely humiliating for him.

Yes, this post is wishing bad karma against someone.

Unfortunately, the justice system operates slower than sludge, so I’m just doing some wishful thinking here.
