|| wondering why I'm not in bed
What I notice the most about reading Palahniuk is that my inner monologue takes on his writing style and tone, making me feel somewhat apathetic and detached from my surroundings. (read also: depressed) With this in mind, I will only read 1 or 2 of his novels in a row.
For my birthday this year, the big surprise was Medieval Times. Tons of fun it was indeed, what with the horses, swordplay, good food and getting knighted right before the festivities began and all... BUT(!)... I found out as we were pulling away from my apartment building, none other then Chris Cornell himself was playing a show at the phoenix theater right beside my building.
"Nooooooooooooo!" I screamed at the stars, "Fate doth conspire against me!"
I'm not saying that I would have rather seen the Chris Cornell on Saturday, I'm saying that I wish I had known about it earlier. (It's my fault not knowing, I admit)
2. Reflections on other things.
I was kind of underwhelmed by S.T.A.L.K.E.R. at first, but now, totally awesome and I recommend it highly to anyone both interested in the 1st person shooter genre and those who only play games in that particular exclusively.
You can tell that it takes gameplay elements from RPG's because there's an arena. There's ALWAYS an arena in an RPG.
I really don't feel any different now that I am no longer less than 2 dozen years old, I am kind of in a different spot in my life now though. It's a period/feeling where I'm really not sure how I feel about a lot of things (e.g.: friends, family, jobs, possibility of further schooling, hobbies, etc.) but I know that I have to, to use a cryptic turn of phrase, start building things with concrete as opposed to pen-and-paper.
Meh, I go off on tangents like these all the time, each time thinking that it's somehow a completely different experience.
One thing is for absolute sure though, as opposed to times before, I'm not sure at all as to what kind of a person I am. That is something new for me.
good all things come in trios.
I love my girl, cats, and Toronto, in that order, no substitutions.
