vicious rumours abound

As soon as I get around to it I’m going to put a disclaimer on the top of this page, stating clearly that whatever I write here is sometimes total nonsense and very, very rarely has any bearing on reality. So just don’t use it to base anything on. Case in point: All that rambling about love and whatnot, I have no fucking clue what I’m talking about. It seemed important at the time, whatever it was I was thinking, but I assure you it isn’t going to make sense to anyone (least of all me). Especially considering how poorly I articulated my already- convoluted thoughts. So please, enough of this crazy talk.

My posts have been rather abstract (read: incoherent) lately. I think I’m trying to be clever, but obviously it just comes off sounding inarticulate. So why don’t we do a nice, down-to-earth, what-I-did-today kind of a post:

I slept late this morning, thankfully. My room is still in the process of being painted, so I can’t sleep there. I’ve been sleeping in the basement there past two nights, because the guest room in our house gets very light as soon as the sun comes up at 6 in the morning. Unfortunately, the cat sleeps in the basement too, so she has a tendency to wake me up at 6:30 when she is usually let out. But not today. For whatever reason she didn’t make much noise, my dad let her out at 7:00 and she was back in time to be lying on the sleeping bag when I awoke at 10:00.

I got up, poked around the house (which was already buzzing with activity, my dad was finished painting for the day and my mom was doing… something), ate my breakfast and took a shower. By then it was 11:30. I didn’t do anything of consequence for the rest of the day, was on the computer for a while (If anyone out there happens to know anything about DNS servers, e-mail me). I watched the first half of Fight Club in the late afternoon. I’ll watch the rest tonight, while my parents are at the movies.

Despite my abundance of sleep, I’m a bit tired. Not much, though, and I haven’t really been tired all day. Which is nice, but its a little sad to think that I didn’t do anything productive with this time. Ah well, that’s what spring break is for. Speaking of which, I don’t want to go back to school. I guess it’ll be nice to see some people again, but at this point I think another week would be just fine. Of course, then it would be even worse having to go back. So maybe its for the better that we’re going now. After all, I don’t mind it too much.

Not a prison cell, Mark. It’s way more liberating than that. But I really don’t know what I’m talking about, now do I, so perhaps I won’t bother to further explain myself.

Yesterday we went to Matt Freeman’s, as planned. It was a good time, I believe. We just hung out for 6 hours. Zoë, Ben and I got there at 5:00, after almost getting lost a couple times. Maggie and Alex got there at 8, and we all partayed. I’m not entirely sure how we spent that much time and didn’t really do anything, but we did, so it doesn’t matter.
