When I have an irregular schedule, it's all over the place. That's what I've come to realize this month. I'm using up the last of my vacation time from work and suddenly found myself in chaos. Well, not chaos as you probably know it but enough to notice things that weren't getting done like, say, making journal entries and working out. That's ok, tho'. The guilt hasn't' made me feel bad about anything and it's been a good weekend so far. I took my dad out for a belated birthday. I bought him a new fedora, he bought me lunch and we both went home happy. I even managed to pick up the first volume of the anime series Najica and enjoyed the first two episodes last nite. What a good Friday.

That's a lot for one paragraph. I think I'll start another. I almost started to get something productive going today when Tom returned a call and we ended up hanging out for most of the afternoon. He's a good guy and we get along well. I tend to forget he's only 14 and it's weird when he occasionally references something in high school. I met him mostly by accident when he called one day. I'd never met him before but he's a friend of a friend who usually catches a ride with her to Anime Club. She couldn't make for most of this semester and told him to contact me since I'm the next closest regular attendee. I usually don't mind transporting him, even tho' it's 20 miles out of the way just to pick him up. I appreciate the company since sometimes the only people I see on the weekend are at A-club. But sometimes by the end of the showing I just feel like going straight home to zone out and that can be a long drive when you're anxious to get brain-dead. Still, we had a good visit and watched some anime since the club is out for winter break. Maybe I'll have the rest of Najica before we meet again so I can suggest it for next semester.

Blah, I'm pretty brain-dead right now but I wanted to get something out tonite. I don't take as long as some people to write my posts but they're just as important to me. I started this when I did because I got frustrated with some origami. I've done this model before but it's a little too small for what I want to do with it. I've set it aside and will work on a larger version tomorrow night. It's a cube with many little slots to slip other units into. The result will look like a cube and an eight-sided object combined. The larger version will be easier and is part of a big-deal project I'm working on. It was a little disenchanting to find that I'll have to cut an eighth of an inch off the paper I'll need for the final but it's one of those deals where it's only a pain until I actually start on the thing. Kind of like some of my writing, all I need is the motivation to get started and then it's easy to keep going. Arg, where was I going with this?

I guess I am brain-dead. Well, perhaps not enough to skip typing in the HTML for italicizing this stuff but we'll see how it goes from here. I'm pretty blank right now and the sentence that comes out really doesn't know which one will follow. I'm kind of on the same level as the reader right now. ARRRRHG!!!! Heh heh. Didn't expect that, did you? Well guess what, neither did I! Hey! Who the heck is writing this then? Not me, I assure you. I'd have something well thought out and concrete to put here, not this nonsense. Am... am I possessed?? Or is it YOU!!? ANSWER ME!!! That's it! I'm stopping this before it gets....
