08/22/2004: "Melancholiac"Listening to: some guy playing the guitar
Current mood: unthrilled
Ah, the rain she is a fallin' in old Ashland town. Pretty seriously, actually; it's decidedly wet outside. Which is nice for a couple reasons. I mean, I think we've all been getting a little tired of the whole hundred-plus-degree paradigm, but also I've been in a rather melancholy mood since last night, and it's always nice when the weather matches my mood. In a way, feeling sad in the rain can almost feel better than being happy in the sun, at least for me. As to why I'm feeling melancholy, other than it being my general disposition, that's far too long a story to go into. But do not worry about my melancholiac ways. As soon as I post this I'll see my bat icon and that will doubtless cheer me. He is a fat little batty.
I hate to say it again, but there really seems to be little going on around here lately. The wedding preparations are still underway, and I've been doing some work and reading mid-90s Starman comics and occasionally playing a bit of Halo. And I've actually done more writing in the last week than I think I've done in the last 6 months, which is always good. The most interesting bit of my week was driving down to Stockton with my dad in order to drive his truck back up after he bought a new car, and getting to meet my friend Mary in Yuba City and hang out for a few hours in the bargin. That was fun. There's really little else going on. Lynnea and I spent a little time cleaning our new apartment today and discovered that when it rains there's appearently a creek that floods and runs through our parking lot and practically sweeps my small car away. Which is amusing. I suppose I'll stop there, I don't want to make anyone's heart stop via excitement. I think maybe I'll attempt to put a bit more thought into my next post. As though that's ever happened.
