I spent most of the day today in the car, driving from here to Fort Wayne and back (two hours each way) to get something done for work that I wouldn’t have had to do were I possessed of even a minor understanding of how geography works and the difference between west and east. I spent yesterday mostly being exhausted into incomprehension and yet somehow still didn’t manage to get into bed until after midnight.
I have these crazy ideas that tomorrow I’ll get something useful done around the house, but I don’t think anyone nearby should hold their breath about it. It’s supposed to be about a hundred and thirty degrees outside for the next couple of days so one thing I do know is that the lawn’s not getting mowed anytime soon. The neighbors are just gonna have to look upon our jungle and despair; I’m not worrying about it.
One definite advantage about spending four hours in the car, he thought to himself before leaving on his road trip, is that it keeps me off Twitter and thus away from the news. I can’t handle how fucked the world is right now and I’m trying to take a couple of days’ sabbatical from horror until I get my head back on straight. So naturally all I did was listen to politics podcasts in the car.
I am not very good at news sabbaticals, apparently. But I’m gonna keep trying. If I can go three weeks without ingesting any carbs I ought to be able to ignore current events for just a few days, right? You’d think.
Back to Dark Souls. Anything I should be downloading or binge-watching that I don’t know about? Tell me in comments.
