I'm getting a cold sore and half my bottoom lip is swollen and sore looking.
Becuase it's swollen and sore.
But seriously, it looks like I got punched.
Being sick, plus stressing myself out over stupid things, lack of sleep well it all equals cold sore. I *hate* that I get these things. Sometimes all it takes is chapped lips. One more thing I guess I can blame dear old dad for.

My father is watching something about gangsters, kick boxers, and... crap. James Earl Jones is in it. So is that Lance Henricksen guy. It's really fucking weird. Ookay.. bizarre stuff just happened. Now I have to know what this thing is.

Okay... apparently it's a movie called Excessive Force and it was a vehicle for a new action hero guy... the tagline of the movie is "In the 70's, Chuck Norris. In the 80's, Steven Seagal. In the '90's, action has a whole new name... Thomas Ian Griffith."
heheh... and now I know why he is so familiar. He was Terry Silver (bad guy) in Karate Kid III.

As the little kid in the store yesterday said about the shoes, he "IS SUCK!" is suck is suck is suck. ::nods::

and he has a mullet.

I realized last night in the middle of a conversation with Dave that I'd forgotten to listen to Karl's radio show.
And I work tonight.
So maybe this is a one off, one on thing and I'm just not supposed to actually listen to them all.
THe thing is... I was sitting there thinking that I was forgetting something. But I get that feeling a lot. hehe.
ah well.
It makes me feel bad, but given my exhaustion and my need not to keep needlessly berating myself for silly small things that I can't fix, ::shrug::

Anyway... go take a look at the found_objects community.
Some chick has been posting pictures of goofy signs that she gleaned from a website. Some other dude today posted a picture of a very old asian woman smoking a huge spliff. Someone else... a squirell.

What about these things make them FOUND OBJECTS? Pics you find online... pictures of people... a squirrell and a bird feeder? These people just SUCK. There are very few people there who actually get the concept of a found object gallery. Found art is fine, found objects, things that you stumble upon. Discards and trash, displays and MAYBE the occasional sign if it's honestly unique.
But these idiots post pictures of themselves and say things like "I found myself!" hur hur! Things that you BUY at stores aren't found objects, dorks. kay?

I've never posted there. Why? becuase I've never taken a picture of a found object that I wanted to share. Why? becuase I don't think that the pictures I have really fit the description of the community. Obviously I'm letting silly things like that hold me back. ::nods::

I just don't think pictures I find online should count, ya know?
I know that in a vague way it fits and all... but eh, just no. Of course, this all comes from my own snotty self important place of judgement. hehe.. it's the same place that allows me to say George Lucas is a HACK. And that people who don't like Tom Waits are idiots.

Becuase I'm right.

I'm turning into a sneaky bastard. Mainly because I know something is ... off. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop and well... it's always easier to be out of the way of the shoe instead of catching it in the face.

And... it's always easier to be just a little angry in the first place than suprised by how deeply something can stab.

I had a super busy lil day and that was a good thing. I got asked a LOT of really really dumb questions about computers. That's a usual thing... but jaaaaaaaaaaysus I just can't believe people go out and drop tons of money on a system and then have NO idea how to even turn it on without help.

I'm very glad that I've got tomorrow off. And I'm looking forward to finishing up this book I'm reading. Becuase I just got the new Chuck Palanhiuk book and I really want to read it.

I think I'm going to go watch some movies. Maybe write some things with pen and paper. Won't *that* be novel? heh

I'm in a strange little mood. But it's in a good way, I think. My favorite thing tonight:
Me: I went to the grocery store next to where I work to get some water stuff and some of the little rice rolls they sell for dinner. It was barely drizzling when I went in and when I came out it was POURING. I ran back to the front of my store and in that 30 feet I was left totally drenched, hands freezing, shivering and laughing my ass off. I looked up and there was a guy laughing his ass off in an identical fashion, drenched, hunched over and looking at me at the same time I was looking at him. It was a really bizarre little moment. I love little moments like that
