work is really draggy tonight. i'm pissy and paranoid. the new guy was doing one of my favorite little joyful organizing tasks when i came in. and of course, me being anal, he didn't do it the way i liked. but i asked him about it and he was like, you do a fine job, i think i was told to do this because they want you to have your mind on technical things. ha!! that's pretty funny, but i did stop being paranoid and take it as a compliment.

jack stopped by, impromtu last night, and watched the second half of the movie i had rented with me, the cat's meow. it was ok. i became somewhat depressed as i had to leave for work, but some music and crisp fall air helped. but tonight's just been bummery, even though it seems like no repercussions are headed my way for saturday's debacle. and i think i can even schedule around all my social events this month to my satisfaction. despite this BLASTED apparent change to having to come in at 11pm. oh, how that rankles.

i should go to the emissions inspection station this morning. i should be a good girl. i should, if i don't do that, pack things, clean things, organize things. i just want to go home and hide under the covers. maybe with a book, maybe not. i am also thinking about doing nanowrimo despite the fact that i'm not actually an aspiring writer. it just seems like it could be really cathartic. plus, my new roommate will be doing it too... plus, as i have stated, i really like counting things and seeing the numbers go up. i should apply this enjoyment to my savings account!

i feel bad here. i think i'm going to go away.

Re: Nanwrimo: DOOOO IT!

Hope your day is going better than your night was.

well i slept well at least! and the aspire passed the emissions inspection. so far so good.

i figure maybe november will be a good month to hole up and type alot, and what with you doing it too, i mean, it will create a "writing atmosphere" or something.

To really create a writing atmosphere, I'm going to have to take up pipe smoking. And get some jackets with elbow-patches.

we'd better keep things pretty disorganized, and on top of that i think a better writing atmosphere would be produced if you gave up on contact lenses and wore only glasses.

i have some spiral notebooks, we can practice signing the inside flap of our books!

Cat's Meow
Was that the Kirsten Dunst murder mystery period piece?

If so, how was it?

Re: Cat's Meow
I thought it was pretty, but a little bit flat; it had about the same pace, i think, as a Gosford Park. I enjoyed it, in good part, because of Eddie Izzard of whom I am a big fan. The extras on the DVD are fun too.

Re: Cat's Meow
Rain and I liked it, also in large part because of Eddie Izzard. We both thought Kirsten Dunst looked cuter as Marion Davies than as herself in the DVD extras... also, we managed to leave the movie with two completely different and mutually-incompatible takes on the ending.

Re: Cat's Meow
I had no judgement either way on the ending; I do know now however, that I can't stand Kirsten Dunst. Without exception. I cannot stand her. I'm sure she's a nice person and all but I'm not a fan of her work.

Re: Cat's Meow
Everything I've seen her in makes me think she's a good actress (and quite attractive too). However, when I've seen her not acting (talk shows), she always seems rather air-headed.
Anyway, it was one of the movies I wanted to see this but haven't got out to see many movies this year.

I am comtemplating nanowrimo too. What will probably end up happeneing is I will go back and work on somehting I've already started and not necessarily finish it, but definately get further into it. Which isn't a bad thing - I need the motivation.

i don't have anything started, but i feel like if i just spew things out on paper as rapidly as i can, somewhere in that volume i'll find either something useful, or just an outlet that i needed to get emotional trash out of my head. even if i did produce something i kinda doubt anyone'd ever see it! :)

Yes, you must do nanowrimo!!! That sounds like sooooo much fun.

Hope today is better than last night. Mondays just suck all around.
Oct. 8th, 2002 02:58 pm (UTC)
it will either be fun or make me feel bad because i haven't exercised the kind of muscles that require you to write like that since college, and i'm afraid it will be awful!!! but what have i got to lose? the respect of my peers in the writing community? oh wait :)

hopefully today will be better. i just got up so we shall see!
