So today kinda got away from me. I was planning to write a post about pets I’ve had (full disclosure: I’ve been looking at pics of cute dogs, and it’s making me want one), but I’m going to take the easy way out and write about whatever. My brain is fried, I have a headache, and it’s only Monday. It’s going to be a great week!
I got home from work and decided that rather than feeling guilty about not wanting to do anything, I’d just give in to the inevitable and watch an episode of Eureka before I tried to do anything productive. That part of the plan went off without a hitch. Where it derailed (yay, mixing metaphors!) is when I went upstairs and sat down at my computer. I decided to check my email, maybe Facebook and Tumblr, drop my girlfriend an IM, then get to writing.
Obviously, that didn’t happen.
Before I knew it, it was 4h30 and I was thoroughly zoned out. Browser tabs were popping up like mushrooms after a rainstorm. My computer was slowing down under the crushing weight of Firefox and processing/unzipping some bundles I picked up.
Oh yeah, I spent money today! There’s been two media bundles I’ve had my eye on, from Story Bundle and Vodo, and today I decided to say “Screw it!” and purchased both. Sure, they were both a little bit of an impulse buy; I didn’t exactly need any of the books/games/movies/music present (did that sound like the Borders tagline, or is it just me?). But the selection looked interesting enough, and I’m trying to feel less guilty about spending money on myself. The best way to do that? Frivolous cash tossing!
Also, I might be having a bad ADD day. Can you tell?
But back to the bundles, since that seems to be what this blog post has become about. There’s some cool stuff in that Vodo bundle; Ghosts With Shit Jobs looks especially interesting (China, ascendant after the West’s financial collapse, uses us as a menial labor pool. Irony!), as do the Surrogates graphic novels (remember that movie with Bruce Willis?).
Anyway, that aforementioned headache is bothering me again. I’m guessing it’s from staring at tiny things on a bright screen for too long. You know how that goes, right. I probably need to update my glasses prescription, but that sounds like work.
