In Which We Discover That You Can Keep A Good Bastard Down

Life has a way of beating us down. When we least expect it, we're walking along, minding our own business and life comes running up from behind and takes a steel pipe to our knees. Shouting as it runs away, 'Kerrigan Bitch!'

Anyway, that's how I feel.

It's been a lousy month and the lousiness continues. Work sucks (my boss gave me the strangest stare yesterday, it can only be described as 'After I've hidden the body, what will I tell everyone?'), home life not going good (my girlfriend apparently thinks gnats are great pets and her son wants to gut me in my "sleep"), and as for my family; well I don't call them because I can only take so much. When I snap I'm going to start with the loud teenagers standing in groups outside the front of Quik Trips, blocking my enterance to buy my cancer. I'm not joking.

So that's why I haven't been here in a while and why you may notice that I've received a fresh batch of sarcasm, with a hint of scorn. Let's list the good shall we?

Tranformers: bad

The Simpsons: great

Crooked Little Vein: Fantastic

After Dark: good, not Murakami's best short work

Comics: good

Smart Ones Dinners: good

Smoking: the only thing keeping several "people" alive

That's pretty much it. Before I forget, I need someone to help me with the pictures I promised you. I pressed all the right buttons to put pictures along with a post I had, but the last button I touched made the screen go black and words in some strange font I had never seen before popped up making out this sentence, 'Feed me your blood, meatsack.' Then my hardrive started to breath, sticking out its CD tray that saliva started dripping from and the whole thing pulsed as if it was a reject from an old Cronenberg film. Yeah, I know. Cool.

Glad to see you dug The Simpsons after Transformers let you down so much.

I need to read Crooked Little Vein soon then I take it. :)

Since life's been kicking you in the gut lately I'll give you some good cheer. I picked up a neat little David Mamet book for you that I'm bringing you on wednesday. :)

Sorry life's been a pain lately. Summer sucks, cannot wait to get to fall. I have a perverse optimism during the time of year when the world starts dying and going to sleep. Odd.

You know, of course, that I disagree wholeheartedly about Transformers, though I know your sentiments about this film have to do with your childhood love of the original cartoons. Unlike Independence Day, Armageddon, and so many other of these 'blockbuster' movies, this one was fun. But we'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

I look forward to checking out the Simpsons film when it comes on DVD. Too many things to see at the theatre right now and not enough time.

See you Wed!
