Late Night Thoughts

This is one of those nights I endure every few months in which I get no sleep at all. I first started getting these last year, and had what (lack of a better term here) one would call "stomach spasms" to accompany them. All I know is I have yet to keel over from one of these episodes, but boy are they unnerving. I was asleep for two hours, then I woke up, then I thought "My stomach feels weird and my skin is hot." Then I remembered I had eaten shrimp tails - NOT SOMETHING I DO OFTEN - tonight, and had eaten exceptionally later than I usually do.

I've been up reading and playing with Smores, who likes to curl in a ball on my lap and purr, and sometimes she pees, but I have yet to be so blessed tonight. I was going to call my Mom and ask her if I was dying, like I do every other day, but I think she's still asleep. I was bit by a spider last night. I know because I woke up with what can only be described as a faux vampire bite on my arm. I have been research spiders and their respective bites (especially nasty ones like the hobo spider) so I don't think this is a spider's fault. Or a guinea pig's fault. Or my diet's fault.

SPEAKING OF, I'm selling an item on Craigslist. I decided to sell it tonight when I could not sleep. I have had one offer for said item from a guy who asked - keep in mind this was like several hours ago - "Do you still have your (respective item?) Where are you?" To which I should reply 

"A remote mountain village in Albania."

I'm also reading the book "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson, and it's a very good read. I tried once to read this in either high school or college and was dismayed. But now that I am ripe at the age of 52, I can truly appreciate this book. In fact, at 3:30 AM, I think I have discovered I should write nonfiction for the remainder of my days. Because the thoughts I have at this hour are so wise and cultivated!

I might go back to bed now, or I might call my Mom instead, because I believe my stomach just made a sound like a slinky going down a waterslide.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
