in an attempt to just enjoy the time off of school this year, i set myself up with some activities to do. i have the house to myself, my housemates are off with family. i really wanted to stick around with the kats and walk around in just my legwarmers. my video camera came in just in the nick of time, my stills camera came in as well, and i accumulated a wack load of movies to watch. i even got myself a fantastic loaf of bread. so, why am i sleeping in my clothes every nite now? i wish i could say it is because i have been rip roaring drunk at a slew of parties every nite. heck, i even wish i could say that it is because all of my running around has left me bone tired. as far as i can figure, i just made some mistakes in my choice of plans.

holiday mistake number one? a constant stream of "kill me" music. ie) the postal service, the smiths, and yaz (sentimental old fool.)

mistake number two? watching the wrong movies. i read in someone else's blog thing (yes, i am a creep) that they watched palindromes recently. i had laughed because that is where i started my holiday movie watching this year. so upbeat. i also watched mysterious skin, and fritz lang's m. if you are not familiar with this films, it kinda boils down to this: i am an outcast and society hates me, and will let me know constantly. maybe i am just projecting.
mistake number three? in an attempt to redeem my mood, i found a bunch of horror movies to watch on my 20" monitor, which i can see from my fantastically comfortable bed. horror is my escapeisim technique. the problem with this? i wake up in my lovely sweaters. i slept in my pale pink wool cardigan with the brooch still attached. i have also been keeping a box of chocolates by my bed. there goes all the healthy living i just stacked my fridge with.
so, i think i will go back to old traditions today. i am begrudgingly going out to socialize. then i am just may go to gus' to finish off the nite. nothing says family like a ten penny down at gus'. any takers?

the recess bandit.
p.s. can you tell i just learned how to link?
