Since I'm unemployed
, yesterday I spent vast amounts of time in front of the computer
getting my ass kicked (while kicking ass, if you play the game you'd understand) at Civilization 2
. Very productive, no? So today I decided to venture out into the real world for my entertainment
so I drove to Manhattan
, home of the other major university in our state to have lunch with one of my friends from high school.
She's doing a lot better now, this is a very good thing. Since my aunt who lives in Manhattan wasn't home, we went to the mall and hung out for a while (me spending money that I don't have in the meantime), and then just for the hell of it, I drove the extra hour to Salina
just for Cozy Burgers
. I got my sack of them and drove to a park and ate them, then drove right back home. It was a great day, and a beautiful drive
. Apparently, I don't do enough driving around Kansas
in the middle of summer because I never realized that this state could actually be beautiful. 20 years of living here and the realization dawns on me.
I got home and remembered that I needed razors, but I'd just been behind the wheel for God knows how many hours, so I decided to ride my bike to Wal-Mart instead. Man, I'm out of shape, that was a hard-ass ride. I can only run about a mile and a quarter before I have to stop and walk too, I remember when I did cross-country and running two miles was like jogging across the lawn. Came home and watched a horrible playmate of the month video with some of my housemates. Debated going to a party, but decided against it.
Oh yeah, and my Hello Kitty Vibrator from e-bay came yesterday! It's so cute! But I can't try it out until I've shown it to people, so that sucks. Ah, such is life.
I read a line in one of my housemate's diaries that I really liked: "I've spent a lot of time laying around not committing suicide." I think that fits the way I feel sometimes to a tee.
