Maybe I'm a little too obsessive.

  • As The World Turns? Seriously?

    I should feel terrible for my lack of blogging on here this summer.

    But then I think about everything I could have written about. And. Um. There's not a whole lot.

    Let's see. I last blogged on June 25th. Sheesh! So long!

    What's happened since then?

    Not a whole darn lot.

    I've gone to the drive-in twice more — the first time, at the beginning of June, was for Indiana Jones and Iron Man — and these other two times were for WALL•E, and then The Dark Knight and Get Smart. I enjoyed them all.

    I've become addicted to a soap opera, of all things. I now watch As The World Turns every day (unless, of course, I'm lucky enough to have a life and be out of the house!). I totally hate Holden, and absolutely love Luke and Noah. Janet annoyed me at first but now I think she is just fabulous. Casey is a major hottie and I don't see why people are disgusted by him and Emily being together. But then again, I only started watching late last month. ...but anyway. Every time I tell somebody I'm into a soap opera, they ask me what's going on in it. I explain and we laugh. So epic.

    I've had a few freakouts, I guess. Nostalgia-attacks, summer blues, stuff like that. But I get over them fairly quickly.

    I've read books. Since the summer started I've read Bigfoot: I Not Dead, The Master and Margarita, all three Twilight books, Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim, Love in the Time of Cholera, Complications, Maps and Legends, and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. I am currently working on Watchmen. Reading is such a nice escape from the confines of the internet and television. Seriously, I just went this past week without having any books to read. Going to the library to check out a few was like a much-needed vacation. I started Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist last night and just devoured it — a pretty quick read, and so I wouldn't go to bed until I was finished.

    I got my wisdom teeth out last Thursday. Not a bad experience, actually. I was knocked out for the whole surgery, and by the end of the day I was only a little sore and incredibly drooly. The next day, I ate (well, nibbled at) a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch. Today, I went in for my post-op follow-up and they said that I am healing up wonderfully. Joy!

    I took the bus for the first time by myself to get downtown. It was an adventure.

    My wizard rock band The Wands played our second wizard rock show this past Monday with The Remus Lupins, The Whomping Willows, Justin Finch-Fletchley and the Sugar Quills, The Mudbloods, and Wild Magic. We also watched The Wizard Rockumentary. Wizard rock is such a beautiful thing! It never fails to cheer me up, I promise you. I am pumped for Harry and the Potters next month, even if they aren't coming to Kentucky.

    This summer has been pretty chill and boring. A part of me is so ready to run off to college and be swept away in schoolwork and meeting new people. A part of me isn't ready for that. But since it's inevitable, I try my best to ignore that second part of me.

    Maybe when school starts I'll blog more. Goodness knows I'll finally have stuff to talk about!
