Hold on, I’m coming.


“Hold On, I’m Coming”

Sam and Dave


Hold On, I’m Coming

If I keep waking up with music like this, I guess I don’t care if I only get two hours of sleep on bad cold medicine.

Bang! Bang! Maxwell’s silver hammer came down upon her head.

Oh Christ, not again.

Every June, I get Christmas songs stuck in my head. It’s horrible. Not because I hate Christmas or anything, but because it makes me feel like my brain has turned into a Hallmark store with all the tackiest snow globes on display.

I usually blame it on the summer solstice… or something.

“Have a Holly Jolly Christmas”

Baby, baby, baby, where did our love go?

Work/life/everything has been nuts. Don’t give up on me yet!

Apparently, this is how “Inception” affected me.

“The Shoop Shoop Shoop Song (It’s In His Kiss)”

Betty Everett


You’re No Good


Since I finally got around to watching Leonardo DiCaprio control dreams while trying to forget Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s as that kid on Third Rock from the Sun, you’d think I’d have “Mind Heist” all up in my head — since it makes everything more dramatic — but, curiously, no.


In other news, I’m back on antibiotics again because… basically it doesn’t matter, so the default from now on should be that I am always on antibiotics and one or more of my internal organs are always dying. I’m pretty sure I’m going to need several transplants by the time I’m 40.


ANYWAY, I did one day of bedrest this time, because that’s all I can afford. I spent it playing Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, which I received for Christmas (twice!). My people know me well.


Also, as I was typing this entry, Mark came in while I had Catception playing in the background, and he stuffed a piece of chicken in my mouth. It blew my mind!!!


Edit: I should also mention that we cut the cord on our cable TV subscription, and I feel as if an enormous burden’s been lifted off my shoulders. We’re using a Roku player (also a Christmas gift), and it’s working out well. We were paying $78 for a billion channels we never watched and 5 we did… so. I encourage this practice. Just, you know, keep your internet service… just so you can read this blog. It’s not like you’re using the internet for anything else, let’s be honest.
