Home Sick

I hate being sick, especially when it means I'm stuck at home. It's not that I mind being at home, I just enjoy the freedom to go out and do things (like shopping). But today I'm stuck at home sick... Grr...

Does It Make You Happy?

I freaking love this song.
Maybe you will to?

The End is the Beginning is the End by Smashing Pumpkins
(has a lot to do with my Watchmen obsession)

Check it out!

You might notice... I've got a new 'widget'. It's the digital graphic adaptation of Stephen King's short story N.

I just finished reading the story and was very impressed with it! If you want to watch the adaptation, go ahead! That's what the widget's for!

Or, if you want to read the short story, it's in King's newest collection of short stories called Just After Sunset. Go check it out!

June Update:

Just a quick update here:

o I didn't end up making the lemon bars last weekend (my mom went out and bought pie, so there was no need... sadness), but I will be making them on Friday!

o I took my boyfriend to a family wedding this weekend and he got to meet my dad's side of the family for the first time! (I think it went well)

o Got one of the things on my list checked off: 1. Sort through books. I've pulled out about a box and a half that I'm willing to part with. Next comes deciding whether that means I'm donating them or selling them.

Okay, that's all for now... Seriously, go do something else people. :o)
