Stop. The world.

Now I have the freeze ray song from “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” stuck in my head.

Not that I know what I’m talking about

I like the idea of loft furniture, but I think the idea for loft beds could be tweaked. The last thing I need, upon regaining semi-consciousness, is to navigate a ladder.

Loft shelves or a small loft workspace above a bed might work, because at least you’d be awake enough to climb. (I have seen bunk desks. They are the coolest thing.) In this case, the “ceiling” over the bed probably would need to be low to accommodate taller people in the shelving/workspace area.

“The Dark Knight”‘s Joker is truly alarming. Add that to my building dread for Harvey Dent, and the whole movie was incredibly unsettling. In a good way.

It turns out that the kids in “The Wackness” are exactly my age at the time of the setting (they graduate from high school in 1994). Somehow, my all girls Catholic high school experience was nothing like theirs, but the (historical?) details are still highly amusing. Also, Ben Kingsley is my new hero.

Artistic Success, Networking Epic Fail

Last night my father had a one man, one night show of some of his artwork in, oddly, a local dentist’s office. (In retrospect I should have been more grateful and less “WTF?” to the actual dentist. In my defense, I had no idea who he was, and dentist’s offices are so rarely the setting for frivolity!)

Dad’s artwork was strange and wonderful as always. Bonus: I got to witness firsthand his fledgling networking skills. Note: I suck at networking because I am socially awkward and suffer networking angst. In contrast, my father is a social butterfly without a card or a dedicated website, circumstances that (as witnessed last night) force him to network by scribbling his number on cocktail napkins with scavenged pens.

I feel like I should pay some college kid $50 a week to be his manager, just to see what would happen.

Good thing I packed some bacon

Thought maybe I was eating too much protein, so I cut my daily intake by half. My consciousness feels strangely lucid, less viscous, and (oddly) perforated.

So, it’s obvious I’m about ready to start drinking the Kool-Aid.

I had no problems running a level mile and walking uphill another mile before taking a 30 minute abs class yesterday. Today is weight training day, so we’ll see how my legs hold out.
