I watched The Devil's Own last night. Mainly becuase it's fun to watch an american actor try really hard to sound irish.
He did a pretty good job, but the give away is that he could only talk in a normal tone or whisper. Anything above that, an actual shout, and the accent went away. Which is really common for *anyone* faking an accent, no matter how good you are at it.
It's hard to shout in an accent.
Plus he had several actual *irish* people there with him. He ended up sounding like he had a speech impediment or something.

I'm still sort of worried about things.
But vaguely worried (with faith that it'll all work itself out) is a hell of a lot better than feeling like I'm always just biting my tongue. Or the feeling that I'm going to burst into tears at any moment, even, say, just for example, in the middle of a Thai restaurant.

I was thinking about this... most people who work third shift tend to wake up right before their shift starts. So their "morning" is anywhere from 7- 10 pm, depending on when the shift starts. So they usually go to sleep anywhere from 11 am to 2 pm (or so), and the time period in the morning, after work, is their 'day'.
Unless I work pretty early (like when I worked 7-4), I usually don't want to do anything before or after work. I think if I tended to work office jobs that might be different, but really... I can't imagine working from 1-10 (even on days when I woke up 1/2 hour before work) and then going and running errands and shit.
Because even though, left to my own devices, I will fall into sleeping from about 6 am to about noon... I still don't actually feel awake and with it until late at night, at a point when all the errand running sort of places are closed.
But that sleep schedule was perfect when I was dating someone who lived on the west coast.

Guh.. can ya even call that dating? I ended up explaining to someone last night about that a little and, after being just sort of baffled by the whole thing for awhile, they pronounced that I might as well have had a "boyfriend" in "canada".
And for all practical purposes.. that's about what I had. And I was his "girlfriend" in "canada"

I have been wanting to make a mix cd. I feel very High Fidelity about that (if you don't know what I mean, you just have to see the movie). I think most people feel that way about them. Not that they mean anything in particular, just that they're little symbols of someone taking a little time to make something for *you*.
But I want to see if I can make a mood flow along without just putting the same thing over and over.
I don't think I'm very good at this.

Mix tapes
I bought my girlfriend a new car as her one died a sad and painful death. So in the process of cleaning out all the crap that she had accumulated in the dead car I found a tape that I made for her when we were going out last time (like 10 years ago).

Playing it was quite cool. 'twas a well made tape and has all the songs that I had forgotten we used to dig together back then. So we started singing along with them. Most fun. And apparently I got bonus "sweetie" points from it, which I don't follow as I did it ages ago...

One of my fellow vet students actually has a girlfriend who lives up in Canada. We make fun of him a lot. Especially since none of us have actually met this "girlfriend".
