sorry for the corny title. i couldn’t come up with anything better, and i actually wasn’t going for alliteration. i just like the word “throes” and it happens to be thursday. so there.
one of my favorite quirky things to do is sit at the counter at Bob Evans and strike up conversations with the crusty old men. they are absolutely hilarious! many of them have governmental conspiracy theories (i happen to be a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself) so it is rarely ever boring. as a little girl, i always wanted my family to sit at the counter, but we never did. so now it’s one of my guilty pleasures- black coffee, eggs over easy, sausage links, wheat toast, and conversations with funny old men. you should try it sometime.
i love driving on cold october mornings listening to Elliott Smith (such as i did today). i always think about the final scene in the movie Good Will Hunting where Will (Matt Damon) heads out from Boston to California to “go see about a girl” (Minnie Driver). the Elliott Smith song “Miss Misery (Early Version)” is playing as he drives off into the misty morning. i love that scene. i think about it everytime i listen to the song.
lately i seem to be dealing with a case of insomnia. i really want to sleep, i just can’t. i tried to go to bed at 9:30 last night, but i struggled for over an hour before i decided to just “call the whole thing off” and putter around for a while. i just hope my insomnia doesn’t land me in Al Pacino’s position. that movie just about drove me nuts. on the other hand, maybe watching it again would make me tired enough to fall asleep.
my weekend begins this afternoon. i am so ready for it. no big plans, just need to rest my brain.
it was sadly revealed to me that there will be no new episode of The Office tonight due to the vice presidential debate. i probably should actually watch the debate, but i will be too bitter.
did anybody watch the Palin/Couric skit on SNL last Saturday? i thought it was hilarious since i actually had watched the original interview earlier in the week. both Poehler and Fey did a good job. i wish i could say the same about the McCain/Obama debate skit. NBC certainly is biased- and even though i am not a fan of McCain, i thought they took it too far. if you saw it you may know what i mean. why can’t we all just get along? oh if only we lived in a perfect world with no need for political crap. a girl can dream.
