Sick and Tired and Slightly Amused

so i did absolutely nothing today. i was feeling a little down and a little sick. i slept until 11 then got up and promptly fell asleep on the couch until 2. how sad is that? the only remotely constructive things i have done today is unload the dishwasher and do two loads of laundry. i did practice mandolin for about 30 minutes. i didn't even watch tv today or anything. just laid around.

i was supposed to go to a family reunion but did not make it. it would have been a lot of fun, too. they had a 50's theme. my parents stopped in on their way home and she said they had kareoke (sp) and hula hoops and prizes for costumes and all sorts of stuff.

This made me laugh so I have been meaning to post this for some time, it is an except from a physics book i have
s l o o o o o o o w l y been reading. (On a good day i make it through four pages...) It's not a bad book, I just can't get into it. But this paragraph amused me so I'm sharing. It's from the section called "Static Electricity- Nature's Most Powerful Force" and it's about Peter Parker/Spiderman's enemy Max Dillon/Electro... "Realizing that he now possessed fearsome electrical powers he designed a garish green-and-yellow disguise, with a bright yellow lighting-bolt-themed mask, and embarked on a life of crim as Electro, as shown in figure 22. Personally, if I gained mastery over such a powerful force of nature, I don't think this would neccessarily be the costume that I'd choose to wear in public. Perhaps if Max Dillon had not been such a rat, his friends might have gently provided some better fashion advice. but it is exactly such a pattern of bad choices that frequently leads these superpowered miscreants to a life of crime." -- The Physics of Superheroes by James Kakalios. Those of you who know me well know about my claims that I am turning into a superhero with the power to control static electricity (okay, I'm not really but i sure seem to collect the charges a lot more than most people) so I quite liked this section.

Looks like I wasn't the only one feeling down this weekend. Michelle was also feeling down yesterday, but then she has surgery coming up, and had a kidney infection, so yea, I can see how that would bring one down.

Hope you feel better soon. I'm feeling sort of alright now, but then I have to pull myself together until after the surgery, then I can come home and crash.

I really liked the paragraph about Electro. All these badass superheros/villans and such funny costumes, hehe. Superman for one, what's with the red underwear, isn't that suppose to be worn on the inside? I really dislike Superman, he's the lamest superhero to me, him and his adventures make me laugh more than anything. But please don't say anything to Wright, he might kill me for saying what I just did, hehe.

You ARE suppose to be in Alaska then. First the glut of redheads here, on top of that this is like static electricity central. I spend half of my time with some strange part of my clothing stuck to me.
