I want to have a big comfy bed that swallows me up and doesn't spit me out until morning.

I'm so ridiculously tired. I went to bed so early last night, and still, I'm exhausted.

If I was bitten by a zombie, would you: kill me on the spot, wait until I became a zombie and then kill me, or run away to avoid having to kill me? OR I guess you could let me bite you so you'd be zombie too, but that would be silly.

Also: Better occupation: pirate or zombie killer? (No, you can't be a pirate zombie killer, sorry)

Shades Of Shades

Ever since the show a sort of gloom has washed over me and for the life of me I can't place it or shake it. Why? tends to leave a romantic gloom in the pit of my stomach when I listen to them too much, but I made myself switch to lighter music. Then my bro got sick, which made me downright sad, because you never want to see people you love in pain. Not to mention it's been raining all day.

I'm guessing it's a combo of all these things.

It can't help that I've been pondering life points a lot lately as well. Which gets me into trouble 7 times out of 10. Sometimes it's just overwhelming (life). The sheer scope of it all, makes me feel uncomfortable, like I'm gazing at the night sky. Sometimes you just feel absolutely tiny and worthless.

What a topsy turvy life I live.

Tonight it's PBS' "Crafting in America" while crafting and thinking good thoughts.

Let it Be Known

Back in July of 2008, I was already starting to gripe about the ills of the Olympics coming to Chicago, but I just want to firmly state my opinion for the record:

I do not support the Olympics coming to Chicago. I think that it's going to involve a lot of gentrification of neighborhoods that are in bad need of TLC not athletes. Yes, it will bring jobs and pump money into Chicago temporarily. In addition to the temporary nature of those jobs and that money, the majority of those job will be low pay/low skill (see picking up trash after a big game, taking tickets etc.). Finally, Daly wants it so bad and I loathe him so by pure spite I hope we don't get it. You can pick up any Chicago paper for the last six months and you can read all the shady wheeling and dealing going down to get these games into this city.

Will I get excited and watch? Probably. I love Chicago and I think it's a great city and I know a lot of people are already beaming with pride and it's hard not getting swept up in the excitement.

But when all is said and done. Boo to the Olympics.

Also, I just watched an infomercial for High DEF. sunglasses, ha ha.
