Things amusing me today

- Really young, athletic, toned, beautiful people having obviously just come from the gym practically fighting each other for parking spaces in the lot where I work that are close to the door. Or otherwise just sitting there idling in their giant SUV's waiting for someone to pull out of a space that's about 5 spaces closer than the empty one.

- The fact that Hillary Clinton's campaign is over.

- "Paper Planes" by M.I.A.

- I spent three days with my family and only really got irritated, like, once. In fact, I had some of the most fun I've had in ages. Especially with my brother, who I hardly ever get to hang out with. He loved going out drinking, and meeting my friends. He really, really, really wants to come back and visit again already.

- I don't have any more homework. Ever. At least until I go back to school. Assuming any grad school ever accepts me. But that will all be at least profession-related homework.

- I have a new record player and I love record shopping!

- Finding copies of books (on my own bookshelf!) I want and didn't realize I owned.

- "Stimulus" checks.

- My best friends coming to visit me at my miserable job.

- I'm not depressed yet from having graduated. (Give it another couple hours.)

- I have ideas for 3 different novellas I want to write. I'm just aiming for novellas because I'm not sure I can actually write a whole novel. Besides, a novellas are good for people with short attention spans. Like me.

- This performance video of Dolly Parton performing one of the most fucked up songs ever written. I was already familiar with the song, but I played it for Tom last night and it literally left him speechless.

- And along those lines, this really hot cover of "Jolene" by the White Stripes:

Only time will tell whether it was a good idea for me to watch that video again right before going to bed. And seriously, did that wig get squished at the bottom of the bag, or what?

(I'm referring to the Dolly Parton song, of course)
