blame it on the rain

today was pretty uneventful: I took pictures of the big red flowers outside my window, went to my office where I was only inspired to put the near overwhelming stacks of articles and papers into the folders in the file cabinet. during this endeavor, I threw away lots of old things, which made me feel very productive in terms of keeping the recycling bin useful. My real motivation for going was filling out a travel voucher so that I don't go broke from the S.F. trip.

later, I went home and took a nap, watched a DVD (xx/xy), bought some groceries (several duplicate items -- how is this possible when I have almost no food in the kitchen? I really don't know.), had some tea at Victrola, and read some articles that I've been carrying around with me for the past couple weeks.

my ikea plant (gardenia?) is almost certainly dead, but I'll give it a week to perk up before sending it out into the wild to fend for itself.

My big plan for saving money this week is to be a little more of a shut in than usual. Typically, there are multiple television shows that I might watch on Wednesday; so this seemed like a great idea, but tonight there were none. Apparently Fox is showing American Idol all the time now. This is how they treat me after I make a good faith effort to get hooked on the O.C.!

Instead I made use of the generally neglected stack of NetFlix and watched All the Real Girls and found it pretty generally mediocre. I was confused by its generally favorable metascore, thinking that maybe I just don't have the attention span to watch movies at home on my small television, but my opinion of the movie pretty much aligns with my favorite reviewer's review; so all is right with the world.

For other entertainment, I read the Stranger. This I SAW U ad is surely one of this week's best:
My hand down your pants-
you had to go masturbate.
I want to see your trailer this time.

It's practically a haiku -- with a little more attention to syllable count, it could've been a modern masterpiece!
