There was a gas leak in the basement of my apartment building so they shut everyone’s gas off. It’s been three or four days now, I’m not sure anymore. I tried to cook, but there’s no fire, and I tried to shave and shower but there’s no hot water. Cold showering is fine, except for some reason the water smells like beach water, but shaving with this new old razor is a real pain so I’ve given up. I think over the last year I might’ve gotten the ability to grow a beard because it’s filling in more than it used to.
I don’t think I get an unemployment check this week since my old job sent me my vacation pay last week.
Closed things up at the asian american writers workshop today. I’ve been there six months and have 1 almost-finished thing to show for it! I’ll show when finished.
Andrew Garfield is awesome. When they first announced he would be Spider-man I was really skeptical. Back in the 70s when they were casting for the Christopher Reeve Superman movies they wouldn’t let David Prowse be Superman because he was British and Superman had to be American, but now the next Superman and the next Spider-man are both British. So is my favorite show, Doctor Who (though if Moffat carries on the way he is that might change). Anyway, I saw this video :
and then I watched social network and thought Andrew Garfield was the man.
I saw this video on funnyordie and couldnt stop laughing.
Then I went on facebook to share it but decided to mess with my family instead.
Speaking of Spider-Man, I love that Gwen Stacy is the love interest instead of Mary Jane. It’s comics accurate, but I’m sure at least one person I know will proudly exclaim, “who the @$%^ is Gwen Stacy? and Where the hell is Mary Jane.” and probably also complain about the mechanical web shooters. I already have that person pictured in my head.
I watched Easy A again to remind myself of Emma Stone’s acting chops. That movie is funny. I had no desire to watch it until my coworker highly recommended it and now I watch it whenever I’m bored. I think it’s on Netflix if no one’s seen it.
Unfortunately, Gilbert Poopy, Michael Chuang’s guinea pig passed away earlier this week which led to a physical fight between me and my former brother. It got out of control when my dad got involved, and now I think I’m finally ready to make the legal name change I’ve been wanting for the last few years.
Andrew and I laid him to rest on Monday night. May he find the peace that he was missing in life.
