Entertainment babble

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:37 pm

I used to watch a LOT of tv but for some reason a few weeks ago I just stopped…cold turkey. Don’t even watch Friends anymore. Dunno why really. I just come home now, turn on the stereo or play mp3’s through MythTV, and read. It’s ironic really because I have all these tv recording devices at my disposal – vcr, Tivo, MythTV – but I don’t really use any of them anymore (except the MythMusic part of MythTV of course). Inspired by my newly revisited reading habbit I bought a couple of books that I’ve been muddling my way through as time permits. I got Leaves of Grass by Whitman, The Odyssey of Homer by Lawrence, and The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe. The Poe book is leatherbound with gilt page edges, smells and looks really good. Lol, that probably sounded a bit strange – I just love the way leather smells 😉 Anyway, it’s been forever since I’ve read something that wasn’t contemporary fiction or Sci-fi, so it’s a nice change of pace. I want to get some leatherbound Emerson volumes next, he’s always been my favorite for some reason.

I’m planning on going to the Huskies football game next weekend (11/6) against Arizona, just trying to find someone to go with me who is a Husky fan too. It’s been a really long time since I went to a game. My dad had season tickets when I was in high school – back in the good old Don James days. I even went to a few Rose Bowls. Good times. If/when I have kids I’ll have to carry on the tradition and create my own little diehard Husky fans. Heh, I should probably stop there before I start sounding old.

Random thought – according to pom: The Moon is Waxing Gibbous (99% of Full). Don’t ask my why I put that here, maybe it’s because the moon is full 😉

There’s been a few other cultural endeavors I’ve been considering too, but I’m a little bored with this post now. I’ll save details for after I’ve done them, maybe. Gotta get prepared to do a stupid post for work anyway. I guess the pay does make up for the long hours, a little, but it would be nice to leave work behind when I left for the day. I’ve forgotten what that was like. I think it will take a pretty unique woman to be able to deal with me AND my work schedule…. Unfortunately I can’t blame my work schedule on my being single, dammit.

BTW – you all do know what dementedpenguin represents, right? I’ve actually had people ask about that. Penguin = linux symbol, Demented = well…me. Just thought I’d clear that up.
