Like, an actual bookshelf. The only thing I have are these painted crates in my room where I keep my books.
I can only blog when my dad isn’t awake or at home. This sounds odd, but whenever he’s home he’s always sitting in the chair that is right next to the computer I’m using(my computer is oh so inconveniently placed in the family room), and when he hears me type so much he always tries to look over my shoulder at what I’m typing. I absolutely ABHOR this. It has to stop! So, it is 7:10 in the morning, and I’m typing out a blog post.
I watched the movie Choke recently. It was a terrific piece of film(or sinny, as Alex would say). I’m currently reading the book it is based off of. The only reason I watched the movie was because it was based off of a book by the same guy that wrote Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk. I loved it. Loved it, loved it, loved it. It follows the life of Victor Mancini, a sex addict, who chokes on food at restaurants to get money to pay for his mother’s medical expenses while working as a colonial reenactor in the fictional village of Dunsboro.
Another thing that happened while I was at the library is I went to the used book sale there. I got two John Steinback books, Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger(yes, I know I’ve read it, but I wanted to read it again), the movies Silver Streak(WITH GENE WILDER!!) and Barbara Streisand, in concert(it’s for my mother for mother’s day…shhh, don’t tell)! All of that only cost 4 dollars, so it seemed as though I was stealing!
I also saw the movie Frost/Nixon last night, and had Driver’s Ed. My homework is to bring a toy car in for today’s class. I was delighted at the prospect of playing with toy cars, so I ransacked my room, searching for the Barbie P.T. Cruiser I once had. I’m not even sure if it was Barbie; my dolls never really fit in it. I always had to put them in through the sunroof. I couldn’t find it, though. Apparently my mother gave it to Goodwill. The only car I could find that was not Hot Wheels(she specifically said “NO SMALL CARS!”) was my brother’s Batmobile. Which is even better than a P.T. Cruiser. This’ll be a zany class.
