The marathon was interrupted by a visit from Colin which, I am relieved to say, wasn't nearly as awkward as I had feared. I think we both felt that we had pretty much worked out our differences through a few letters over the course of last week so there really wasn't much left to address. He brought with him my half of our order of happiness from Homestarrunner.com which I immediately began enjoying. I find it amusingly interesting that I received my Homstar shirt the same weekend as I bought a derby. Naturally I put them on right away to compare but I think my accent is the strongest resemblance I have to the character. The Kick-A The Cheat toy is a lot better than I expected and we had fun beating the crap out of it. I just hope I figure out how to change the batteries before they finally die.
After the awkwardness we watched some AMVs and anime and then discovered my car battery was dead just before a trip to the used book store. We jump started my car just fine (after reading our car owner's manuals like a couple dorks) but I swear, Chevy puts their batteries in the dumbest places. I hope he doesn't have to change his next battery under pressure of time because the last time I did with my old car (which had a similar setup) It took at least two hours. Anyway, I found a CD of Sheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov and a couple others from the dollar rack. Some books too but I discovered later that I already had one and will have to return it next week. When we returned we realized that we were cutting into Colin's computer time and I still had anime to attend to so we parted ways to end a pleasant day. All in all, a good weekend. And now..
Here are the results of a quiz stolen from miang
1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says
" 'Twas I defended her, before the world' " (Lots of bonus points if you can guess the source.)

If I go far enough without falling out of my chair I hit a small table that I bought at St. Vincent DePaul's a few weeks back to keep my small refrigerator off the floor.
3: What is the last think you watched on TV?
Someone drug a TV into the break room at work last week to watch a news report on the recovery of a "kidnapped" girl.

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at:
A couple more hours of Evangelion

If I knew you were gonna ask I'd have put on something hot and naughty, but for now it's just my new T-shirt, good jeans, boxers and socks.
10: Did you dream last night?
If I did, I don't remember which is usually the case. Stupid REM sleep.
11: When did you last laugh?
Within the past couple hours when I thought of some smart-aleck thing to say to what I was watching at the time.
12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Starting on my right and rotating clockwise: a picture of my friend Sheri, an Ah! My Goddess wall scroll featuring a scantly clad Belldandy, a framed magazine ad for an Indiana Jones collector's plate and my framed and autographed photos of Harrison ford and Karen Allen. Gear!
13: Seen anything weird lately?
I already said I visited with Colin.
14: What do you think of this quiz?
I'm just going to quote Sheree here as I feel the same way, "It's kind of long, and I wish copy/pasting could preserve text formatting so I didn't have to re-bold everything myself." (especially since this is the second time I've had to type everything because LJ screwed it up the first time.)
15: What is the last film you saw:
I think that was Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath
16: If you became a multimillionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
The rest of my house. Yes, boring but true. But next I would buy my own vampire!
17: Tell me something about you that I don't know.
I have a box of Disney's "Princess" cereal in my kitchen.
18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do.
Cleanly and efficiently eliminate five Billion people.
19: Do you like to dance?
I love to dance, but I don't as often as I would like because it would be much more fun with a steady partner, even if I don't really know the steps anymore.
20: George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or someone who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?
Why are those two my only options? All I really want to know is: according to the last election, if I vote for him, that will get him out of office... right?
21: Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her:
Something like Missy Carriage since I don't ever want children. (see #18)
21: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
What I want to know is why there are two #21s.
22: Would you ever consider living abroad?
If you're granting me #16 then hell yes!! I could spend the rest of my lives traveling the worlds.
23: Will you pass on this survey?
If I did you wouldn't be reading this.
