I woke up around 8:30am to the sound of furious activity. The landlord is having a storage space built (which I gather we'll be able to use, which would be extremely cool), and the guys building it had the pieces spread all over the back area.
Behind my car. Trapped I was, like a cornered rat.
So I surfed for a while, while munching on green tea wasabi peanuts. Very stressful, indeed.
I went back to bed at 10:00am or so, and woke up again at 3:30pm. Quite a few interesting dreams, though the one I mainly remember was my mom waking me up for a lecture on how I needed to buckle down and get a job.
I have no idea where that might have come from...
In any case, by then they were finished, cleaned up and gone. I, by contrast, wasn't ready to get out of there until around 5:30pm.
I took my recently showered and dressed self over to SuperCuts, and told the girl that no, I didn't want a shampoo (huh?), but a beard trim, got that, and here I am at Red Robin, fortifying myself for the night with fries and honey-mustard dressing.
I actually would have been out of the house earlier, but I was watching part of The Root of All Evil, which jeffercine was kind enough to post.
Apart from taking time I didn't have out of the afternoon, it's slow going for me because while Dawkins is, unfortunately, a bit of an asshole, something about Ted Haggard just makes me want to jump through the screen and beat him to a pulp. Sleazy, self-serving hypocrisy seems to always have that effect on me.
It's odd. I don't even feel that way watching videos of Pat Robertson, I think because he's, as far as I can tell, an honest psychopath. It feels like he really believes that anything that happens to Massachusetts will be the result of God's displeasure over gay marriage, while the drought in Georgia is... unfortunate.
In any case, I know what I need to do in my discussion with greeneggsandtam, now. Hopefully I'll have time later or tomorrow to write everything down that's seething in my head.
Dinner's over, I just got confirmation for my and timenchanter's tickets for spawrhawk's show tomorrow, and I should get to the bar and start setting up.
