I don’t have a particular topic for today’s post. This is going to be a post of quick hits. I’m sharing some stuff that’s on my mind that either doesn’t merit a full post or might but I don’t feel like writing it.
My shoulders hurt. I don’t know if I’m sleeping on them in a weird way but they bother me when I’m awake.
I could really go for an Orange Julius right now.
Thanks to an Audible promotion in which I got 3 books for 2 credits, I now own all three books in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy plus ‘The Hobbit’. If you’ll recall, one of my goals for this year was to read those books and now I have acquired the final two that I had been missing previously.
I am feeling the urge to read the ‘Left Behind’ books again. It has been a few years and I would love to read them again and write reviews. I like the books a lot but that doesn’t mean I think they are perfect. In fact, there are parts of them I find to be quite funny despite the fact they’re not intended to be funny parts.
I may also need to pick up another Jack Reacher or Jack Reacher type novel. There’s something about reading about an ass kicker that appeals to me right now as I’m not doing much.
I wish Audible, which is owned by Amazon.com, took Amazon gift cards. I got a $35 Amazon.com gift card for my birthday (thanks Karen) and have no idea what to buy with it. In related news, I could purchase 3 credits for $35 on Audible and have some 385 books or so on my wishlist.
The Royal Rumble is Sunday. I’ll probably watch but I don’t know if I’ll have anyone over to watch with me. If people come over, at least they’ll bring food and I’d be alright with food I don’t have to pay for myself. I try to run a pool every year but this year I haven’t put in the effort to find people who want to participate.
I hate the fact I can’t drive where I want. I want to go see Jeff Dunham in Sioux Falls towards the end of April. I can’t simply just buy a ticket and go, I have to secure transportation first and that’s not always an easy thing to come by. When I think of specific things I miss out on because I am unable to drive myself it results in me feeling a combination of frustration, disappointment and pissed.
If I do go to Sioux Falls in April, sometime before April or after April, I will be going to Sonic. I’ve been craving Sonic for months…probably since I last had it in October.
Tuesday was apparently national popcorn day. Now I want to go to Poppy’s Popcorn. A bag of chocolate covered cherry popcorn and some popcorn balls would be pretty awesome right now.
Talking about Sioux Falls, I have to remind myself that I turned down my annual January trip to stay with my cousin for perfectly valid reasons. I couldn’t afford an extended stay and to go without being able to do the things I want to do would be depressing. Besides, at the time I turned it down, I was in a pretty bad frame of mind and was sure that not only would I have no fun, I’d keep other people from having any in my presence. I have to repeat this to myself because I sure am missing it right now.
Thursday is the last day for ‘The Force Awakens’ at my local theater. I guaranteed this would be a movie I’d see more than once and figured I’d see it probably three times or more. I ended up seeing it exactly once, on the day it opened. My birthday could have been a second viewing if not for the fact that I decided it would be more fun to cry my eyes out for two hours. Maybe I’ll get to see ‘Rogue One’ on my birthday. Otherwise, I doubt I’ll ever have another chance to see a Star Wars movie in the theater, on my birthday in my lifetime.
I had another dream about Ginny while napping yesterday afternoon. It was more of a memory than a dream. I miss her attitude. The one where she was right, knew she was right and was frustrated that I tried to convince her she wasn’t right. Confidence was abundant in that dog. She always thought she knew exactly where we needed to go and good luck convincing her otherwise.
When I was grocery shopping last week, I saw Valentine candy on the shelf. Oh, I hate Valentine’s Day but do love conversation hearts. Still, I think this year I’ll skip them and just stay with the hatred of Valentine’s Day. Of course last year, my hatred for Valentine’s Day turned in to a series of posts about being visually impaired that were quite popular. I still have not moved those posts over to this blog because I hope to someday edit them, expand them and turn them into my biography. Trust me though, they were great and a lot of people really liked them.
Now where’s my Orange Julius? Hey, these posts can’t all be profound but don’t worry, I’m still being honest.
