I discovered a lot about my social interactions because of the New Year's Weekend.
It has lead to some changes (not resolutions!), not the least of which resulted in my buying the Baby Beluga CD by Raffi at Value Village this morning and spending the whole day hanging out with my little sister. She's cool, I enjoy her (mostly). We're gonna watch the second Night at the Museum movie tonight. I'll let you all know how it goes.
However, I realize lately that I've been sort of wallowing in this puddle of misery and self absorption which is not at all healthy.
One of the changes I've had to make is that I am not going to waste my time or energy with people that I don't enjoy. As I've said a billion times, I'm getting old, and life is short. I do not apologise to those that I won't be attached to any more. It's not that they are bad people, they're just not my people. I only have about 219,000 hours left to live, so I need to make the most of them.
I had a cool chat with an old guy in the book section in the book section at Value Village today. He was entertaining and recommended that I read the Redwall series. I suggested that he read Jane Eyre. I also found Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness in the kids' section, which confuses me. I think they just sort of threw the books wherever. I bought it anyway. Also I got Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator and The Indian in the Cupboard and Winnie-the-Pooh and The Sorrows of Young Werther and a Bob Marley CD and 2 Billy Talent abums and one Hello Beautiful album. And 3 pairs of jeans! Yeeea!
Now I have to clean stuff and wait for my parents to go away so the little one and I can crank some music and make pasta and poke around on Mystery Google. That's a good kid for you eh?
