Happy Wednesday! In a week and a day, I get to get OUT of my parents apartment. Still not moving into my real apartment, but at least moving somewhere new. I’ll be sleeping on the floor and camping out in the empty upstairs apartment where my friends will be living. Still better than being at my parents. I need MY OWN SPACE.
Reading: Nothing! My brain is not working. It’s hot, I’m at my parents, I can’t seem to focus on anything. Oh, and also, all the books are packed, both theirs and mine. I may have to restart the DCIB Book Club just to kickstart my head.
Watching: My Dad and I watched The Poseidon Adventure and Airport. And started The Towering Inferno, but it was so bad we couldn’t continue. Although I did get to see Paul Newman 15 minutes in say very seriously “I need a pair of dikes”. That’s a giggle.
Thinking: I will never have a home! I’m just gonna wander aimlessly in temporary locations for the rest of my life!!! My parents have boxed up almost everything they own for their move and are starting to take a few things to the new place, so their apartment feels more like a railway station than a home. I go over to my friends’, and they are boxing up for their move. Everything I own is either in storage or the back of my car. In a week, I get to move the back-of-the-car stuff to an empty apartment, and even that seems just impossibly glorious. Not to carry my most precious possessions in the back of my car! Can you imagine the WONDER?
Listening: Courtney in a comment just reminded me of “Goriye”!
Question for you: It’s a friend’s birthday this week and for our movie night movie, she requested “The Yellow Thermos Movie”. What are your personal nicknames for movies?
When I was in college, I called DDLJ “The Best Movie Ever” which my friend and I eventually abbreviated to “TBME”. Since then, there’s also “The ET movie”, “The Dwarf Movie”, and of course “The Movie Where Shahrukh Kisses the Wrong Girl”.
