Apropos of Nothing

I am still alive, despite your best efforts.

I am all moved in, and will hopefully have pictures soon.

Work is crazybusy. Teachers are back in a week and a half.

My cousin is getting married this weekend in Wisconsin. Congratulations, Nicole!

In what could be the worst possible timing ever, I have started playing World of Warcraft, an MMORPG* that has me killing spiders to “level up,” a thing I just recently denounced. Ah, well.

My cats still don’t seem quite settled with the idea of living in a new place.

My office decorations at work include a statue of Ulala with two Morolians, a foam skull, and a Batman Begins poster.

My van has some sort of a tire problem that causes the van to shake. Not good.

Speaking of vans, it costs me $50 to fill the gas tank. Also not good.

I am run-down and tired 90% of the time these days. I probably should go to a doctor, but who has the time?

March of the Penguins is one of the cutest, most adorable movies you’re ever likely to see. Go check it out!

Mandy Patinkin just doesn’t get enough mentions on this blog, so here’s a shout-out. You know him best as Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride.

I haven’t had an improv gig for a while, but my last excursion was so awful that maybe that’s been a good thing. Next one’s in two weeks. Hopefully “the funny” will have returned by then.

“Apropos of Nothing” is the new “Creek of Consciousness” title, in case you’ve been following along or wondering. Now you know!

I hope you are all doing well. Say hi in the comments, why don’t you?

*MMORPG = Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game

    I swear, that wasn't me trying to kill you. I blame Pixel.

    Yay pictures!

    Hopefully work will calm down soon and you can resume a more leisurely life there.

    Yay weddings!

    WoW is wonderful! Welcome to the fold. You'll level up more quickly than you think, if you're workin' on quests.

    Cats never like moves. You've put two moves in on them within the past two years, they're not going to take that well.

    Yay decor!

    Ack tires!

    Ack gas costs!

    I'm pretty tired too. My gout's also not in check. I should go to a doc too. I think we all need a checkup.

    If I don't have time for a doctor, you really think I'll have time for penguins? Maybe.

    Yay Princess Bride!

    Yay the funny! Come back! Yay improv!

    Yay renaming!

    I second the "all need a checkup" comment there brian.

    Mup, i am developing a deep glaring hate of the MSN "Mobile" icon HINT.

    Also, hi! :D

    LOVE the new title for this type of post. Very clever.

    Well I was just getting past the withdrawl stage in overcoming my addiction to this sight, it having been so long that any fresh "product" was available; and you do this to me. I am hopeless.

    make that site, not sight.

    Sorry about the attempted murders… I swear, I was just kidding around. *hides bayonnet*

    Your Blog is beginning to look like my LJ, what with random little lines and tidbits. You're supposed to be all editorial-ish!

    Actually, the correct spelling is "Mahna Mahna," but you wouldn't be expected to know that.

    I hope to regale you with tales of my weekend soon, but I'm not sure when the opportunity will arise – I am very busy at work, even on into the evenings.

    I knew it was "Mahna Mahna"…

    12 days and counting . . .

    MMORPG: Mad Mup Only Rarely Provides Gossip.

    MMORPG: Maybe Monday's the Only Rest the Poorman Gets. Boy, that didn't turn out nearly as good as HP's!
