Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 is starting in theaters across the east coast in approximately 20 minutes (give or take for previews). I told my son I couldn’t do a midnight showing. Its crowded, and the movies run too late. Honestly, I’m jealous as hell of everyone who is there now. I get so excited for these movies, but it is true that it just goes way too late. And its too crowded for my liking. Not a friendly environment for someone who suffers from a bit of agoraphobia.
Also, I must confess, I know very little about the Beatles. As a music lover I feel like I should be much more educated on the subject. I can’t explain why, either. I knew some Beatles music growing up because my parents had albums. They just released them on iTunes, so I asked my parents which album they preferred. My dad picked Sgt. Pepper, and my mother had no answer. I decided to download Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road, just to get a taste of it. Currently listening to Abbey Road. Its fine, but I’m not sure what the deal is. They’re singing about being in an Octopus’s garden. Is that code for something, or were they high when they wrote it? Its kind of like some of todays alternative, I guess. I’m going to have to do some research to find out more about the Beatles phenomenon. Maybe you just had to be there, though? Kind of like when NSYNC was huge.
Tomorrow is the first morning I can sleep in without having to get up to meet a plumber, septic tank pumper, or any other kinds of people. That makes me kind of happy. I can just move my day along as I see fit. After I met the trainer for a session at 12:30 today, I was able to go about my business. I had to go to Walmart (bleh, I use their pharmacy because its closest and cheapest) and Target. Usually Zach accompanies me on these outings, but he didn’t want to today. I’m so used to him going with me, and honestly I find comfort in his companionship when I’m at a store. Sometimes I won’t even go if he doesn’t want to. Today I did well on my own though. At my own pace, which I liked. Plus not having him with me meant I was able to pick up a of gifts and stocking stuffers. So this will really be two days of doing my thing at my pace, and if that means I want to finish wrapping Christmas gifts, that’s what I’ll do. Yeah, that’s probably exactly what I’ll do. Then I’ll knit. Maybe I’ll go out and take some pictures. And tomorrow night, I will watch Supernatural. That all sounds very freeing.
Such is the life I lead.
