recent happenings

Magic prerelease last Saturday. Won rounds 1 and 2, lost in 3 and 4. Stupid mana screw. Legions is a fun set, though.

Charlie came over early that morning and I watched some Adult Swim from New Year's Eve. I have not seen any of these cartoons before, and I might have to start watching one of them now. I think it's called Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The one with a milkshake, a french fry guy, and a meatball? One episode had a doll that reminded me of Marvin from the The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The other episode had elf blood and Danzig. Very strange, and very funny.

I finally watched the last two episodes of Six Feet Under from season two. Bleh. How can you leave me hanging like that???? Grrrrrrrrrrrr. Brenda admits she's a sexual addict, Nate is going in for surgery, Keith is off the police force, etc. etc. Damn, you, HBO. Hurry up with season three.

And now it's time for an amazon.com shopping spree.

I finished reading the Unbearable Lightness of Being, by Milan Kundera. Yet another book that I shouldn't have read at work. Good stuff.

p 15:

"Tomas came to this conclusion: Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman)."

I miss spooning more than I miss sex.
