Life here is going slowly. I'm at the point now where I don't care if I'm wasting all my time, as long as I'm wasting it quickly. I was given a TV, so after much struggle the GameCube was finally hooked up again. Right in my own room, too. I haven't played since my sister was here last. That was either two years ago, or going on three years..I don't remember when you came, sis, but either way it's been too long.
The past three weeks (or whatever the hell it's been) has been mildly amusing, with a sprinkle of bad. First, the news that I actually got to have fresh pizza twice this month with the family, and on one of those occasions I had those delicious little lava cakes (you used to be able to buy them at Superstore - I miss those days). We had pop, and chips...It was all so nice. We don't have pizza a lot, or chips, or pop. The most we ever do is go to a drive-thru once a month. Sounds like a lot, but it's really not to us; especially when you have to worry about spending one dollar.
But, anyway, then some relatives came over. Two aunts, two cousins, two second-cousins (I hope I'm not forgetting anyone). It was pretty fun. They played the GameCube out in the living room, and I even tried to teach a second-cousin how to play Checkers. I'm not trying to condescend; I mean she asked me to teach her. One of my aunts played my dusty guitar, and she was really good at it. My mom got pretty sauced; she looked at one of her sisters and said, "Who's he?" But thankfully my aunt had a good sense of humor and she laughed harder than anyone ever has in my presence. (But maybe she was just being a courteous guest...I think if I had been her that night, I wouldn't have found it funny at all.)
Then, last night; my brother and I watched X-Men: Days Of Future Past while eating popcorn and drinking chocolate milk. And I didn't even get sick from the popcorn! I guess the good news is, I can eat that after all these years. Hopefully though, not all popcorn is so...salty. Blagh!
Tried talking to a friend on Facebook in a chat room, but something happened and I was taken to another chat room. Then I couldn't find her. That still annoys me; but hopefully she isn't too mad.
Anyway, my book is at another standstill, so I'm going to go sit in front of another screen (what? I get bored). I do wish I wasn't playing all these games alone, but that's the way it goes, I guess. But I guess I should eat first. And maybe take a nap. (Yes, a morning nap. I'm just so tired, even though I did sleep. Pretty well, actually.)
