What has happened
Ugh, there are so many things that I wanted to do today that I didn't have time for. It's summer; I'm not supposed to feel rushed like this! So, yes, you will have to wait longer for pictures to be posted to this blog. However, I did update the Ghost Hunters blog. Not with a story, but with something. There is a cute little tidbit at the end there, too, so if you had been reading the story, you might want to check that out.
The Internet is the best way to organize your life. If you tell everybody your plans, you will be forced to shame yourself into making them happen. Friday night, Ryan, Jennifer and I devised a list of summer goals so that it doesn't continue to be stagnant. My friends and I end up watching lots of movies because we're too tired from working to be spontaneous. NOW WE WILL HAVE NO CHOICE.
I've also added a summer to-do list on that huge page of books I need to read and anime I'd like to watch. It is here, :O There's not much there yet; hopefully I'll add to it.
Last night, Louise came up and spent the evening with Ryan and I. We went out for Thai food, which was delicious. For most of our meal, we were also the only customers in the restaurant, which was very peaceful. We watched "Blade Runner" and "Advent Children." Blade Runner was pretty weird....The setting was cool and Harrison Ford was badass and Edward James Olmos was cryptic and made cute origami, but I kept falling asleep. I think maybe I'll try watching it after reading
When the three of us were in Game Stop in the mall, they convinced me to purchase the video game Knights of the Old Republic II for $19.99. It was so cheap! You may remember my random posts about killing rancors and kicking ass with a lightsaber in hand from last Spring, when I played KOTOR. I guess at least this time, I won't be playing it when I should be studying!
Today, Ryan, Jennifer, and I went to a mass service in Spanish, which was pretty cool. It would have been a lot better if they had announce the numbers of the songs, though, so I could have tried to sing along. I need to work on retaining my Spanish skills somehow. I should read some Spanish fiction.....but there's so many English books that I have to read! Wah.
Anyway, I'm going to go start a new book now. Which is pretty much the best feeling ever.

Phillip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", (you did that on purpose didn't you?) is *far* weirder than the movie Blade Runner. In fact, the point of the movie is the exact opposite of the book and they have almost nothing in common thematically.
Actually, I did think it was Asimov. I'll change it just for you!
PKD's books about robots are quite different from Asimiov's ^_^ We Can Build You is one of my favorites. It's more about mental illness than robots - but the Abraham Lincoln and Edwin Stanton robots are neat.
House of Leaves isn't really *dry* so much as it just takes incredible concentration to try and read, basically because there's too many layers of narrative and you're trying to follow the story of the "book" and of the footnotes written in the book, all the while trying to understand why the book is making the man writing the footnotes get crazier and crazier and causing the formatting of the book to get more convoluted.

Also House of Leaves is not hard to read. It is simply the greatest book ever written, so it is hard to accept.
1. That name rings a bell; it all makes sense now.
Maybe House of Leaves isn't hard to read, and I was just exhausted from having read Body Artist earlier that day.
