Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn

Note to self: While in the mindset that you are in, probably not a good idea to watch the movie Clockwatchers.

Arrested Development

While waiting for the bus to arrive this morning, I saw a man get handcuffed.

From my perspective of the event, he had done nothing wrong. He kept saying to the arresting (note: I don't know that he was actually arrested...) officer: "I don't understand this. I didn't do anything."

The incident was rudely being done not completely within my earshot, so I couldn't make out the entire conversation. I'll request that they speak louder next time.

Apparently, the man had been in a nearby 7-11 moments earlier, and had been accused (J'accuse!!) of stealing something. (Or maybe he really did. Again, lack of info on my part)

The bus arrived before the episode could be played out, so I will never know what happened, but it was rather startling to see the cops simply walk up and place cuffs on a guy.

In other news, I have a tremendously bad headache right now. AI blame the lack of food and sleep I've had in the past 24 hours.

Also, I have come to the realization that work takes up WAY too much of my time. Life is too short. I should be spending those 9 hours (12 if you include commuting time) of the day doing something.... else. Being with my girls, or playing Scrabble with Steph, or sleeping, or a hobby or something. Bah. Mondays are cruel.

The P@rix v. 4.0

I think this is the fourth revamping of my template. Maybe I've had more. Eh. Doesn't matter. Point is, I felt it was time for a little change, so I made some little changes. (heh)

I've removed some blogs from the blogroll, and added some others. If you want to be included, or want to be removed, just let me know.

And, since I haven't done one in a long time - let's make this a stalker roll call. If you're reading this, just leave a comment. Oh, I know! Simply type what your "word" verification is! I'll get us all started...

What? Dude, I hate it when I've got nothing to say, yet feel like I should be saying something just for the sake of saying it. Ya know?

That being said, I have an idea for a new project. Hooray!!

Now, if I can just get beyond the "idea" stage...

Finish the sentence

I liked the internet better...

Man, that's a great word.

But, seriously, you know what is inexplicable? The popularity of "Deal or No Deal".

I mean, really. It's an hour of opening suitcases.

With Howie Mandel.

And like magic, I blog.

So. I was supposed to have written a story - or at least part of a story - every five days during this month. Yeah. I think from here on out, I'm just going to blog when I feel like blogging, and if it happens to be a story, then so be it.

Steph and Saren are out right now buying the 4th Harry Potter movie, so that we can have a Harry Potter movie-marathon this weekend. Earlier today I bought popcorn. Of course, we won't be able to do all four movies in one sitting, because, dude. That would be a LOT of sitting. But still pretty cool.

Maybe next we can copy Miranda's family and read all six books aloud. It's been awhile since I've read them, so a refresher course is due before the final (!! [frown]) book comes out.

I don't have a good conclusionary way to conclude this entry, so I'll turn it over to the P@riots out there: if you've got any Harry Potter theories, quotes, favorite moments, or antecdotes, feel free to share with the class. [up]

February was.
