Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.

So yesterday morning, I woke up in near paralysis. It felt as though needles were being shoved into every inch of my spinal column, from the top of my neck down to my tail bone. So I've been in bed for the past two days with only my crappy laptop to keep me company, missing class, missing work. The only good news is that I've been able to watch some movies and listen to music I've been meaning to update myself on. Notably, I finally saw Dr. Strangelove, which when Corey and I were dating, he talked about in high esteem (I still haven't seen 2001, but I still want to see it in his company. Not sure if he does, though). I enjoyed the movie. Very similar to some of my other tastes- dark, offbeat, taboo. Dr. Strangelove himself is simply an amazing character and although he isn't in much of the movie, he totally steals the show for me.

I'm sort of at a loss as to what to do with myself. I'm in a lot of pain and usually I'd just play warcraft through it until I got better. But none of my computers will run it anymore. I need a new system, hands down. I want a beast of a computer, an absolute monster. Any suggestions?

I think I'll download the Spore Character Creator and make some dino-aliens.

Before I go, I leave you with the following song. It's the song Creep by Radiohead, but covered by a group of 60 young Flemish women. It's absolutely beautiful. Even if you don't like Radiohead, this is an amazing choral piece. Give it a listen.

I finally found your blog. WOOHAH.

By the by, feel better. Since when do you have back problems?

Also. Call me tomorrow, curious to have a conversation with you that isn't interrupted with class/work/etc. And I need to do my ritual of begging you out here.
...posting this made me look at flight tickets for winter break :D
