My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

Various happenings

Last night, my friend, Sarah, and I went to see the spectacular foreign vampire film, Let The Right One In. It’s playing at the very old, and very gorgeous Tampa Theatre. I’d been there plenty of times for concerts, but last night was my first movie. It was a rather beautiful movie, but I want to see it one more time before I really write about it. 

For Christmas, a friend, Jayleen, got me an Amazon gift certificate which I promptly used to buy Incesticde, the only Nirvana CD I didn’t own. I totally love it, particularly Stain, Big Long Now and Downer (Downer being originally found on their first album, Bleach). Obviously, I only like the happy music. Though, lately I’m really digging Tracy Shedd’s Cigarettes & Smoke Machines. It’s music that sounds sad, but her lyrics are actually pretty “up,” as “up” as I like to hear. Also, Cigarettes & Smoke Machines is just a fucking cool album name.

I’ve been to see Doubt four times now. Honestly, that movie is as relaxing as any drink for me. It’s so compelling and brilliantly acted that I just kind of lose myself in it. Also, I have decided that I want to become a nun.

Yesterday, my allergist said I’m “an inspiration,” which is interesting, as I’d only known him for fifteen minutes. I’m not really sure what I did in that amount of time to be inspirational, aside from breathing and moving my eyes. That label is always weird to me. I mean, I understand it, but I don’t think it’s right. I’m nothing spectacular. I do good things sometimes, I totally fuck up sometimes, just like almost anyone.

    Loved Let the Right One In. Great movie that was shot very well. I loved when she/he crawled up the building. Freaked me out.

    Laughing out loud about that “inspirational” paragraph. Lately people have been telling me I have a “glow” about me. Must be all those radioactives I’m exposed to.

    Jenn, maybe it’s that GIANT LED under your chair.

    Were your sinuses shaped like the virgin Mary or something to be called inspirational?

    Umm… it was for your birthday, chief. Hence, the happy birthday message that was supposed to have accompanied it. 😉

    Yes, well, I never actually learned to read.
