so, i dogsat for the 2 great danes in centreville again for the past week. they are really wonderful dogs. but having another glipmse inside the private lives of people ive met once, made me depressed. i dont want that life. i mean, they are nice people, and they may be happy....but you can tell they spend tons of tiem working. liek they work to live, and then they buy this "nice" house full of sharper image products in teh middle of a cookie cutter nighborhood. their friends called and left messages while iw as staying there, and they all seem so...interchangable. but maybe thats just my own fear. maybe thats what they wanted to build their life into. to blend in and assemble. when i went to start my truck yesterday morning, it wouldnt start. the battery was dead. i was stuck at the dogs house all day. after ann got off work she came and picked me up, and i had taken the battery out. we took it to advance autop parts in sterling and traded it in,a nd i bougth a new one and put in last night. then i went with anh to some of her friends house for dinner. and then i went back and went to sleep. |
i bought a ton of mags and books at tower the other day. i am reading a book called "SAying yes, in defense of drug use" by Jacob Sullum. Im not far in it, but so far he has made some reallyinteresting points, and i'd recommend it. its basically info on soem surveys that are in favor of legalizationa dn effects of marijuana, that are "threatening" so they arent as widely used. and basically he's pitting the legalization and effects of alcohol against that of marijuana, which is one of my favorite oversights. how can alcohol be legal and not pot? wtf? anyway, its a pretty good book. i also go the new "found" book. i am already doen reading it. god....its brilliant.
for anyone who doesnt know, its a book of compiled notes pictures, shopping lists etc. that people all over the world find and mail in. its very interesting.
