Lazy weekend, much?

AWW for some reason I have been living under a rock and have just now discovered the whole Netflix watch instantly thing.

I am never getting any work done ever again, am I? I knew there was a reason I was keeping that XP laptop around.

In other news: Thanksgiving seems to have gone well. I had a lovely, delicious dinner with some newish friends here, and then I lost $5 at poker. To my comfort, though, we were playing nickle-ante, and it took me six hours to lose my five bucks. I went home at 1:30 last night feeling dazed and happy.

Today, I have done nothing but sleep, read children’s books (Today: the collected Homer Price stories. Day before yesterday: “A Wrinkle in Time”. Ongoing: “The Dark is Rising,” which I used to adore but now seems a little sturm-und-drang. I do not have the brain cells lately for adult books, and a good children’s book is pretty damn satisfying under those circumstances), trash my house by making snacks and irritatedly clearing the contents of my desk off (onto the floor), and idly working whilst watching Pirates of the Caribbean. Hurrah for holidays.

    Homer Price! I oddly enough never read Make Way for Ducklings, but loved Homer Price. I read the first Dark is Rising book, but never got to the rest… One day.

    Homer Price indeed! I didn’t know anyone else of our generation ™ liked them. They are awfully old-fashioned, yet completely awesome.

    The doughnut machine! How could you NOT like that? And remember the giant ragweed? AWESOME. I read one book in the school library. The other I found in the old Salvation Army thrift store down by Lake Union, which I think has since been closed…

    I just read the giant ragweed story! It was in the collection I picked up. The donut machine story was not but I remember it fondly. There is a small genre of “kid makes mistake, nearly drowns in food” stories — homer price, and I think there’s a story by Daniel Pinkwater about too much popcorn.

    SO MUCH AWESOME.

    I actually used half my alloted “Watch Instantly” hours last month. Yeah, I discovered the joy of the Office (American version) and watched season 1 & 2 compulsively. TV without advertisements is the only way to watch tv…

    I was completely dazed Friday after all that poker and food. But it was definitely a good sort of stupor to be in.
