I am moving today and may not have direct access to internet for while so updates may be short/intermittent. I love you all and will leave you with this bit of internet related humor.
I've done this far too many times.

whether he's talking about Squirrels applying make up in trees, shopping in gas stations at 3 am, how the dial on a toaster always lies or total clothing rights, Eddie Izzard has a unique style of humor. If you can stand his rambling, random diatribes about anything in everyday life or history, you'll probably end up loving all of his crazyness, yes that's crazyness with a Y. Easily one of the most original and talented comedians of the last 20 years or so. I'd highly recommend any of his work. One thing to note, if men in makeup and women's clothing bothers you, some of his work may not be for you. That taps into his total clothing rights idea, women have co-opted most of all men's clothing as socially acceptable and he feels that's completely unfair. I heart Eddie Izzard in a completely heterosexual way

So I decided to steal an idea of my friends by hearting various things, basically as a shout out to stuff I think is good. I of course had to start out with Strawberry Ice Cream. I'll eat pretty much anything strawberry flavored, but strawberry ice cream? I'd sell my right leg, my soul and your house for an unlimited supply of it. although as I type this I can't see the photo I uploaded, but just thinking about it has at least doubled the production of my salivary glands. Here's one for Strawberry Ice Cream.

I am surrounded by my peaceful cacophony just the way I like it. All five of my roommates are gone to disneyland and I have the house pretty much to myself. I'm sitting at the computer, obviously, but what's not obvious is how I like to surround and amuse myself. Today I'm watching Serenity (great movie), listening to John Mayer, Blogging, again obviously, writing email and fooling around on about seven websites and downloading stuff through torrents. I can waste more hours than are healthy this way it's a huge comfort zone for me. I think that my brain processes information differently than almost anyone I've ever met. I can multi-task like a woman, who are, on average, naturally talented at it, my senses/attention will drift between all the things I'm doing and even if I'm not paying direct attention to the movie for example, I'll still catch most the information subconsciously and as my attention drifts back to it I'll assimilate it into what's going on then. I think it's one of the reason I don't play RTSs (Real Time Strategy games, for those of the un-initiated) really well, my attention always drifts away from and then back to whatever I'm doing. It's one of the reasons I always listen to music while I read, it's always familiar and it becomes a white noise for me to bring my focus back to the words on page. That reminds me about the way the read books. As I get into a book, I read faster, and as I read the words become a movie that bleeds through the page, like I'm seeing them both at the same time, it seemed weird to me when I thought about it. A lot of things I do seem weird if I stop to think about them, but I usually don't pause that long.
