I’m seeing a pattern here…maybe I should rename this blog “What not to do…” We’ll see. Well the thing to definitely not do on a hot, sticky day is to have three computers on, leave the air conditioning off, and sit upstairs a lot. And of course, I know this because that is what I spent my day doing.
But there was one thing good that came out of all of this discomfort. I discovered an awesome game that my brother showed me. Its called Audiosurf, and if you’ve played it before, you know why I love it, and if you haven’t played it, you should! Anyway, I spent a majority of my day upstairs in a room full of computers taking turns playing it with my brother. To put it mildly, we had a blast!
I forgot to put in a few days ago that I did, indeed, go see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I enjoyed the movie, although it had its faults. But no movie is perfect, except for, possibly, The Princess Bride. But thats another story. I will have to admit that the major reason that I was probably having such a difficulty in getting interested in the Indiana Jones movie was that I was cramped in a car at a drive-in with my dad and brother in the front seat, and my mom and our dog, Bailey, in the backseat with me. Being in the backseat (If you have ever gone to a drive-in you will know exactly what I mean) is very difficult for someone who actually intends on watch the movie. Add to that a restless dog that keeps crawling and jumping on top of you as you practically lay across the seat to be able to see the screen, and you begin to understand the true scope of the difficulty in focusing on anything, let alone the no doubt wonderful plot of said Indiana Jones movie. I will have to say, though, that I enjoyed the scenes with the aliens and the forshadowing during the wedding. If you haven’t seen the movie, I hope that doesn’t really give anything away, and if you have seen it, I hope that is enough to know which scenes I’m referring to.
Beyond that news, my days haven’t been that chock-full of action, or even any mild thrills. But in case anyone was wondering, I did indeed finish that hellaciously difficult chapter, and it is now posted to be read. I did not inflict any severe head injury or even a mild pounder, but did put in a bit of a mind-boggler reveal about some mysteries of the storyline. Intrigued? I hope so! Because I would sure love to hear any feedback about how terrible, or not so terrible I am at writing. Please! If I am causing nightmares by my awful prose, it is most definitely your duty to tell me to throw in the proverbial pen and don’t quit my day job (which, coincidentally, also has to do with books and prose). But enough of that. I’m sure we all have lives to get back to.
And on a parting note, it has finally begun to rain, as the weatherman has been telling us all day that it will. The temperatures are beginning to slide back to marginally less uncomfortable levels, and the breeze is most refreshing. I hope your day ends just as well.
