Thoughts in my nighttime.


I may have picked the one loft that’s just a little too close to the Black Eyed Peas lovin’ club downstairs. Maybe I made a mistake. Maybe. Ask me again in 13 months or so, when my lease runs out.

On that same note, it’s a pretty good thing I’m not a light sleeper.

The DJs are a lot less loud on Mondays than they are on Sundays. I wonder who I send the Thank You card to?

I haven’t had the Internet or TV in my home in the six days I’ve lived here. On the plus side, I sure get an ample amount of sleep at night. I cook things in the kitchen and pick up books a whole lot more than I used to. Sometimes I even read them! On the not so plus side of things, re-learning how to live life without either has proven to be absolutely exhausting. Did I say exhausting? I meant either terrifying or boring. One of the three.

The movie theater three minutes from my place has huge reclining, rocking chairs in it, each custom built for people with butts so much bigger than my own. You can even eat real food there, along with your gallon of diet cola and head-sized bucket filled with the popped corn. Thanks, overweight America! I’d send out Thank You cards to you all, but I just can’t afford that kind of postage.

And, oh, while I don’t recommend The Runaways as a movie, it sure is nice to remember how good “Cherry Bomb” is. For a good time, turn that one right up.

It’s pretty unfortunate my neighbor listens to Dave Matthews and Ben Harper as loudly as he does but, then again, maybe that’s just the way he was raised. If so, he’s forgiven. Me, I listen to Glade’s album three times on a Sunday. Maybe That Guy heard a song or two. Baby steps, friends.

I never have to wear socks again. Ever. I remember this about once a week and smile.

It’s nice that my complex makes free brunch for its people on Sunday mornings. Waffles, omelets, you name it. It’s even nicer to opt out of the crowd and find a pretty lake nearby to walk around, digging on that sunshine.

I don't think I could live without the Internet. TV - yes. Internet - no. We cancelled our cable almost a year ago and now we do crazy things like talk to each other, cook together, go outside and play with the dogs... you get the idea.

P.S. You kind of make me want to move to the South. I hate wearing socks.
