Blargh. I'm feeling belligerent today.

Saw Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End last night with a bunch of people from work. It was actually a lot better than I thought it would be, and I am satisfied. There was no 20-minute section where we watch the highly-paid lead actors roll down beaches on carnival wheels, they killed off my favorite character, and lead-in for movie #4 at the end there makes me less than happy (HAI DISNEY, AND HOW IS MY FAVORITE WHORE TODAY?), but on the whole... I'm ok with it.

Getting the soundtrack, regardless. Yup.

My coworker Victoria crashed at my place after the movie, since a 1.5-hour drive back to Ithaca after the movie got out at 10:30, coupled with getting up at 7 for the drive back down here for work would have been less than entertaining for someone accustomed to a normal 8hour sleep schedule. I was up until 3 or so healing BM for a couple guildies' Kara keys, and really ought to have finished it too >:o Dan's internet cut out right after the 2nd boss on our first attempt, and I somehow completely fucked up and let him die on our 2nd. I still have no idea how. His life bar was full and then it wasn't... grrrr. It was after 3am and we called it quits without ever finishing it. At least it's good KoT rep.

Going to sleep frustrated is never a good thing, and that's probably part of my mood today. I had no Starbucks' as Vic had to follow me most of the way into the office, and now I'm having a frustratingly brainless IM conversation with another coworker.



I'm heading home to my parents' this evening, as I'm needed at the store Saturday and Sunday. I'm contemplating making this Banana and Blueberry Bread while there... I picked up a couple of bananas yesterday and some blueberries in case I feel like taking the time. It's always nicer to cook when you know someone else will be around to eat it :) I've a stirfry which I marinated a couple of days ago still sitting in my fridge because I felt like cooking, but not like eating. (It's technically cooked, too - thin strips of beef, sweet onion and wax pepper marinated in lemon juice, hot pepper and black pepper. I'll give it a quick whirl in a skillet because I don't like my dinner cold, but it's not necessary).

Going to have the "by the way I'm planning on moving in a couple of months" discussion, too, I hope. Mom's flight doesn't get in 'til Sunday evening, and it'll be either me or Gene or both picking her up from the airport. The car with someone rightfully tired after a long trip is not my preferred venue for such a discussion an announcement. For one, I can't get away when the shouting starts. Wish me luck.

Not to self: Stop posting unnecessary rants in public journals. (Yes, the other sixteen and a half paragraphs have indeed been removed.)

In rereading all this, the words of someone I saw on not too long ago come to mind:

Y HELO THAR CATHARSIS

I always do think better when I'm writing.

ETA: There's a Breaking Benjamin/Three Days Grace/Puddle of Mud concert here this weekend. Of course it's the one weekend this month that I won't be home. Hells...
