Is it really December?

Man it's hot today.

I don't know why I'm surprised.

I can't seem to get into the Christmas spirit man!

I see the houses decorated, I catch a glimpse of a Christmas song, I hear about all the deals and "holiday specials" but it still just doesn't feel very Christmas-y.

It'll come though.

It always does.

Spent some time with friends and family recently.

Had a Rock Band party at Sherry's and it was a lot of fun.

I did a terrible impression of the lead singer of AC DC and had everyone dying with laughter.

It reminded me of the time I was impersonating the lead singer of Guns N Roses and singing "Welcome to the Jungle" to Nick.

I miss that dude.

Where the heck is he?

Meghan has been visiting a lot. And Lori and the Rossis and our new friend Chris.

He's a friend of David's but he moved just down the street from us so he comes and hangs out and usually brings beer.

Gotta love a friend with beer.

Went to Applebee's again with the gang.

Mariposa and Nicole from Starbucks were there.

I love those gals.

Oh so I saw New Moon.

I gotta tell you I was kinda disappointed.

I knew by the trailer that it wasn't going to be that great but I guess I just expected something different.

It's not even so much in the acting and how certain things were left out etc.

It just didn't LOOK right.

The makeup this round was terrible.

I thought my Cullens looked more human in the first movie.

And pictured them not looking as "dead" (or "undead"?) as they did in New Moon when I read the books.

The Volturi scene was pretty cool.

I can't wait for Eclipse.

They better not leave important background info out and they better make the Volturi more awesome.

Those are my rules.

:)

Do you ever feel disconnected?

Like, from everything?

I've been journaling about this a lot lately.

Feeling like I'm in some kind of snowglobe just that far away from the world outside of it.

I can still talk with people.

I just don't feel I connect like I used to.

I find it hard even to plug into myself.

I kinda feel like I just go through these motions day after day.

Get up.

Play Bejeweled.

Eat.

Shower.

Listen to music.

Maybe watch something.

Read.

Occasionally (wish I could do more) write something.

Sleep.

I'm not unhappy though.

I'm just kind of....here.

I'm reading Lolita right now and it's very very interesting.

It's disgusting.

But somehow you feel for the pedophile guy.

And also makes you wonder about that whole "age is nothing but a number" idea.

It's written in amazing prose. I love prose. I know....I know....

Sue me.

I mentioned it just because I typically enjoy prose-y books.

Anyway, it's a good book.

I kind of know where it might be going but it could turn out to be just one of those "diary of a madman" type of things where it's all in his head.

We'll see.

Oh, man I have to read the last two chapters of Robert's manuscript.

He's writing a novel.

Good luck to you, man.

:)

I dig it so far.

I think it could make a good movie.

Just gotta see how it ends.

So I guess today's a "get to the ending" kinda day.

Finish something you started.

Once you find the end of something you often find the beginning of something new.

Hmm....

I like that.
