Gobble Gobble

This has been one very long weekend for me. Mostly because I have spent the weekend almost entirely alone.

I have not spent a Thanksgiving alone in several years, and I can't say that I enjoyed it much. And because I've had so much time on my hands, I naturally have done squat. That's just part of my nature. When I have a hundred things to do and 2 hours to do it, I'm like a fart in a twister. But when given tons of time and little to do, I'll nap or watch TV. Or movies.

On Thanksgiving day, I did a little cooking for myself and it was ok. My menu included two of my favorite casseroles (broccorni casserole and cheesy-mustard cauliflower). My mother named the things, ok? And I had a turkey sandwich- which was always my favorite part of the meal anyway. Still, it sort of sucks to eat alone and not have any games or conversation afterward.

Mowed on Friday and successfully mulched all of my neighbor's leaves that were cluttering my yard. I have only one or two trees on my lot-but my fucking neighbors have huge trees which border my yard. Thus I get inundated with leaves every year. And since I don't want to burn and add to Global Warming- I just mow and mulch the suckers. It took over 2 hours and two tanks of gas to do it,but the yard looks good... well, good-ish. Let me just say again for the record that I HATE FUCKING MOWING!

Saw "Stranger than Fiction" and I loved it. Will Ferrel's performance didn't make me want to punch him in the throat at ALL. and Emma was great as usual. Nearly teared up at the end- loved the ending. Again- sad to see movies by yourself and I do it all the time.

Played volleyball on Saturday (thank god for a group activity!) But I sucked at the end and got very frustrated. Also did a bit of music composition- but didn't get very far with it. I have discovered that I can write nontraditional pieces of music (i.e. modern) but trying to write things like fugues or chorales completely eludes me, and these are the things that olde timey composers used to do in their sleep. Its very frustrating.

Rented Da Vinci Code (its good) and Strangers With Candy (so bad I had to stop the film after 20 minutes-- and I think it still gave me cancer).

So- not much to write home about, I'm afraid. I have one more day of this too. I may play volleyball again, as it will be 70 here today. At least it will be human contact,right?
