So, I've been out and about the past few days - I did a whole bunch of driving (St Paul to Park Falls, Park Falls to Ashland, Ashland to Madison, Madison to St Paul) - all because I needed to pick up my brother and see a psychologist for the ongoing legal case. They're finally putting dollar amounts on our pain and suffering (which is an odd process for everybody but the lawyers, I might add), so they need to see how much of my psychological disorder is directly attributable to the accident itself. Let's just say it was interesting - I had a 3 hour interview, and took two standardized personality tests. I think Luckjohn was not entirely remiss when he suggested that the guy just look on Livejournal - where he could find out everything he ever wanted to know about my personality, and more.

Driving is a pain in the ass - literally. Not to mention all the smoking I did, because I spent about half of my 18 hours of travel time alone - my lungs are not exactly happy about that. Que sera, sera.

While I was home, I watched Trainspotting with my littlest brother, Mike. It's an interesting situation to be in, explaining to a 14-year-old why a film about Scottish heroin addicts is one of your favorite movies. I suggest you try it.

I also watched a bunch more of Hellsing and the first two episodes of Sorceror on the Rocks, courtesy of my brother Patrick. Maybe I'll talk more about those later - let's just say Alucard gives Vash and Spike a run for their money in the "I am a badass anime anti-hero" category.

The apartment is clean - for the first time in too long. Thank goodness.

Anybody who wants a ride to F.U.N.K. tomorrow, better let me know soon.

::raises hand for the ride-ness begging:: Although I don't actually know what I'm going to present yet. Eeeps. I'm at Satya's right now and will be getting to campus by maybe 3-4-ish, something like that.

And I have to say that Vash is really just a misunderstood hero, not an anti-hero. Now Aulcard, THERE'S a good anti-hero.

I have a bad habit of thinking that every anime protagonist is an anti-hero. My bad.

Give the cell a call when you need a ride - I'd like to get people around 8:45, and leave by 9:00.

Oh, and should I bring your CD's?

You know, I COULD just call you, but it's so much fun leaving messages here. Right now it's questionable as to whether or not I'll be on campus in time to meet you, so I'm going to say that I'll skip this month. ::pouts:: Actually I'll probably be too tired from moving stuff. I'm already tired and I haven't even started yet! But in either case, thanks, and I will NOT be needing a ride tonight.

I don't have anything prepared, but if you come pick me up and drive me to Arthur I promise I'll have something done in time.

Re: F.U.N.K.
When I have a car that can travel instantaneously from Minnesota to Hawaii, no problem. Or my own private airline.

I was actually wondering if you'd write in for a ride . . . must be more careful in the future ;)

Even more fun...
Awww shit... F.U.N.K. is tomorrow... I work late. I'll see if I can show up and present something... don't have much... I have lots of ".'s" though.

Oh so back to the topic at hand. Even more fun than explaining why a movie about Scottish heroin junkies is your favorite movie to your 14 year old brother is this. Explaining why you like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to your dad and your little brother who you've just watched this film in the theater with. Some fun lemme tell ye.
