Philly Journal, 8/10

There are five cats here, but two of them are skittish, so I never see them.  Still.  Three cats.  Not bad.

It’s been so hot.  Hot all the time, everywhere.  I like the heat but nobody else does, so I just feel like a creep.

I haven’t been home to see anybody yet.  I swear I’m coming soon.

There are lots of airplanes in the sky all the time.  I know this comes from being so close to Philadelphia.  But still.  I’ve never quite grown up in this regard.  Airplanes are amazing.

My mom and I watch a lot of MSNBC, and Philadelphia Phillies games.

We also eat a lot of turkey burgers cooked outside on the grill.

And chicken burgers, too.

I’ve only gone to one movie since I moved here.  I don’t really miss the movie theater, despite having gone about once a week for the past 5 years.  There have been plenty of movies released that I have interest in, too.  And there have been times I could have gone.  I just…don’t feel like it.

I also haven’t been reading as much.  I’m not sure what I have been doing, but it seems a bit more fun or interesting than movies and books right now.  Who knows.  Things change.  Then they change back.  Then they change again.  Such is life.

What do I have an unquenchable desire to spend all my money on?  Philadelphia Phillies merchandise.  I didn’t see that one coming two years ago.

My nephews are becoming real people.  It’s cool, but also scary as hell.

New Jersey has 1% less sales tax than Pennsylvania.  I just found this out today.  Just sayin’.

Bryan Cranston’s performance as Walter White on the television show Breaking Bad is by far the most impressive, sustained creative effort I’ve ever borne witness to.  The universe in general has certainly taken notice of it.  The stars and planets probably know about it.

I sometimes eat lunch, on my breaks during work, at a Whole Foods.  I’d never been to a Whole Foods before.  That shit is good.

  1. I am terribly allergic to cats. One step inside your house and I’d probably sneeze so hard it would kill me.

    I’m with you! Hot is so much better than cold! Sure there’s such thing as too hot, but too hot is just like, “Damn it’s hot!” while cold is, “AHHH! FUCK THIS!”. Sitting in front of an AC for heat relief will always beat getting under a blanket for cold relief.

    I feel like I’m cheating when I watch MSNBC. I find myself agreeing with most of what they’re saying and thinking that “the news” in general thinks this way. Rachel Maddow is glorious, but like it or not she’s Sean Hannity for the left.

    I’ve been reading a little more frequently lately. I’m starting to fear for the world’s balance when I’m reading and seeing movies in theaters more frequently than you. Just out of curiosity have you been listening to more Prince than usual lately?

    I’ve never been in a Whole Foods. I’m curious though.

      Yeah I never get these people who are all about getting under blankets! That shit sucks!

      Sure, MSNBC is cheating. in it’s way. But my mom and I also read entire newspapers every day and listen to NPR and all that kind of stuff. I in no way consider MSNBC a news source. It’s political entertainment.

      You should go to a Whole Foods. You will like it.

        Oh, and I’m still reading A LOT. I don’t know if the average person can comprehend how much I was reading daily between 2008-2012. I still average one newspaper, 2 magazines, and 10-20 pages in a book a day. That’s currently, under my much-reduced rate.

  2. I never get to spend money on Philies stuff, my mom buys me all the cool stuff first. I don’t mind. I’m jealous you live close enough to go to CBP.
