yolen: (Me as a Simpsons Character)
It's so unbearably hot and humid. I fucking despise the dog days of summer. Is October almost here?

I recently finished watching all of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel". I feel oddly accomplished in a fangirly sort of way. It took several weeks to this,watching eps as I nursed Milo at all hours of the day. We own these, so in a few weeks I plan on going through the 2 series again, but this time to watch the shows with the commentaries.

Almost done watching "Sopranos" thanks to Netflix. The show went downhill some after season 3, but overall this has been some damn quality tv. I'm glad I've been able to see it all in a continuous fix and didn't have to wait freaking years between seasons.

Having a baby has really greatly reduced my patience for my family's usual bullshit and shenanigans. Not only have my priorities shifted, I am too goddamned exhausted and sleep deprived to spare the energy.

OMFG, I almost had a heart attack from the way that the winds started to blow like crazy (hurled a window fan out of the window, that's about when I jumped up a foot). Lightning. WTF. It's raining hard as hell now, thundering and lightning like a mofo, winds are crazy. And [personal profile] fings had to stay late at work because a transformer at the college blew so IT stuff regarding keeping the computer room ok had to ensue. He's still not home :(.

We had a blackout for about a minute, but the stove/oven and the refrigerator aren't working. I've fiddled with the circuit breakers but no joy. WTF. I am not happy.

It is a sad and sorry thing that tomorrow's high is expected to be 88 degrees, and I can't wait for the break in this weather. It's only early June. We're screwed this summer, aren't we?

Just checked my email, and THANK GOODNESS my Saturday classes are CANCELED due to the weather. Apparently, if Friday classes are canceled because of inclement weather, then Saturday classes are automatically canceled. Words cannot begin to express the relief I am feeling right now. I was NOT looking forward to going to class, I was just cursing the fact that I hadn't looked at my homework assignment all week long.

I woke up quite some time ago, much, much, much sooner than I had planned. Poop. My throat is killing me and I'm all sneezy. I really should get the flu shot sometime soon, cause the thought of feeling 100x crappier than I do right now is quite, quite unpleasant. My place is a mess, I should get cleaning but I so don't feel like it. My ankle is a bit on the throbby side (thank you chilly & rainy weather) so I'd better take an extra MSM pill today. I'm really tired. There is so much I need to do today, and all I want is another day of being in bed, but I can't do that. Phooey. Times like this I (almost) wish I drank coffee for that morning pick-me-up I'm always hearing about. I should keep a stash of emergency cola for the occasional morning dose of caffeine. Ok, .

The book I'm currently reading is a reread, it's been over 8 years since I first picked it up and I'd forgotten how wonderful it is, "In the Language of Love" by Diane Schoemperlen, for anyone who's interested.

At this point I'm thinking my Halloween costume this year will be a variation on the naughty maid bit. Working only with what I have at hand, it's pretty much the only thing I can do, hopefully no one gets traumatized by the sight of me in my costume :P.

On Friday night, [personal profile] fings and I had many rum and cokes, and sang (possibly way too much) on his newish karaoke playstation game. Good times. I kicked ass on "Killing Me Softly" and "Against All Odds", impressed with how well I did on "Unchained Melody'--come on, that's a hard song to sing! Failed utterly on "Don't You Forget About Me" and "You're the One That I Want" from Grease (I hit Sandy and Danny's parts dead-on but totally screwed up on the chorus, damn!). [personal profile] fings did well, but he was frustrated at the lack of songs suitable for his deep range.

Saturday morning, I woke up about 4am and could not fall asleep until 7am. It sucked!! Tossed and turned, then tossed and turned some more. I did finish reading my book, and started my current one, but it would have been preferable to sleep, that's for sure. Oh, well.
We finally finished watching season 1 of "Battlestar Galactica" on dvd, excellent, excellent show. Looking very much forward to the next dvd release in December. We were planning on going to Manhattan to see if there would be any cancellations for a dance that had gotten rave reviews, and if we couldn't get tickets we'd head over and watch "Everything is Illuminated" with Elijah Wood instead. Well, [personal profile] fings did a little more research and figured, 1) I'd find some of the show's content questionable (if not particularly wanting to see some random guy actually masturbating onstage makes me a prude, then I'm a prude, I'M A PRUDE!!) and 2) it had gotten good reviews in the NY Times, so the chances of actually scoring tickets were going to be most likely zero. So, we decided to go see the movie, but first I'd take a nap. Bad move. It took him like 3 tries to get me up, and I ended up spending at least 45 minutes (if not more, my memory is a bit fuzzy) longer in bed than I should have. I felt utterly, utterly exhausted. When I finally scraped myself out of bed, it was decided that we would indeed not be able to make the movie (ooops), so we went out to Maxwell's for dinner (yummy, yummy guacamole and chips & chicken pot pie ). Even though the evening was on the lightly drizzly side, I suggested a walk after dinner. We figured we'd stroll over to the used book store, too bad it was closed by the time we got there ('nother oops). So to Blockbuster it was! By the time we had "Lemony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events" and 2 bags of Twizzlers (hey, it was on sale!) in hand, it was effing POURING. When we were back at the apartment, dried off and hiding under a blanket with Twizzlers and watching a decent movie a big part of me was rather pleased that we hadn't ventured into Manhattan after all, we had gotten pretty soaked just walking 15 minutes or so across Hoboken. Though I wish for [personal profile] fings' sake he had found out about that dance earlier so he could have gotten tickets, he really wanted to go.

Slept in late on Sunday and then we went to see the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" at Stevens Institute of Technology's Debaun Hall. Very good! We're talking a musical performance of the show, not just people acting out the movie underneath a screen. Great set, and the singers were all very impressive. Frank was dead-on fabulous! It was so much better than what I was expecting, very pleased.

Today, I've been sick and feeling like poopy. Spent a fair part of the day reading in bed and dozing off/napping. Feeling much better now, but tired. Stupid cold, stupid headache. I should be ok enough tomorrow to get back in the swing of things.

It took me way longer than it should have to write this entry and edit it. My brain is a bit on the slow and bumfuzzled side. Need sleep.
