Yesterday got together with my friends from high school Josh and Matt for hanging out. Josh is now a third grade teacher who has never left home, Matt alleges to be in Illinois studying with a Nobel prizewinner doing I don't know what, and you know me... Anyhow we went to Athens to eat at the Olive Garden, bopped to the B&N cos it's the best bookstore (well, okay, only non-exclusively bible-based bookstore) in 50 mile radius, and then came back to my Mom's to watch The Matrix Reloaded.

I will never understand why Neo is the only one who understands that he will not be street pizza if he gets squished in the Matrix. Not that hard a concept: there's not a friggin' spoon. Whatever.

In other news, I finished reading America: The Book by Jon Stewart which was just so fucking awesome on many levels. They do it like a school textbook and I wish they really could use it as a textbook. Even though most of it is absolute silliness, there IS enough real material presented in an easy-to-understand way that our brats may actually learn something. (I'm not cynical. Not at all.)

Discovered a side-effect of sleeping pills is that they make you depressed, or if you're already depressed, they make you even more depressed. Dumb doc didn't tell me that. Grr. I haven't touched anything since the Marching Christmas Kitty Hallucination Incident but don't know if that's where part of my problem is coming from. Definitely doesn't help that Mom has taken to asking "So how do you feel today? Do you feel better emotionally today??" several times a day, and always seems rather put out when I say "Sorry, not really." I mean, I really wish I could wake up in the morning and be right as rain, but it just doesn't work like that, and she should really know better than that (sorry, it's true). It makes me feel guilty I can't be my cheery dorky self, but honestly, I'm doing my best and my best is operating on an hour-to-hour basis.

Anyhow, I'm working on a list of resolutions for the new year. Not that successful, really, it's evolving to be more of a list of Things to Do Before I Die (that's good too, but still). Anyhow, I'll post them both tomorrow. Cos I know both people who read this would be into it (ha, I say, ha!).
