I don’t recall any dreams from last night, but if that chart is to be believed, I still got a lot of REM sleep. Of course, how accurate can an app on my phone really be?
I do know that I don’t feel like I got enough sleep last night. Went to bed after heavy discussions of finance, which itself came after a 1.5 hour commute. There has to be a way to cut that commute down. It’s starting to get to me. Today, I’m either going to stay in San Mateo and find something to do here, or I’m going to get some BBQ in Alameda. Either way, I don’t think I’m going to make it home before it gets dark.
I think I am starting to see some patterns in the traffic. If it’s slow on the bay bridge, stay in the right lane as you approach the toll plaza, but then be sure to move back to the fastrak lane quick before you get stuck behind some asshole who needs a receipt.
One thing that happened last night that might have contributed to my lack of sleep was I got an idea for a story. It’s not ready to share yet, but it might be this website’s first attempt at fiction. It also has potential to be some kind of web video series, that is if I can get my shit together and actually write the thing, and that assumes that after it’s written it’s any good, and then that assumes that it’s good enough to attract talent and probably funding. Lot of assumptions it might not live up to, but we’ll see.
I also saw a couple posts turned chain letters yesterday that I might take a stab at. The first was started by Film Crit Hulk and can be found here: http://badassdigest.com/2012/02/05/why-you-love-movies/. This was followed by Quint on Aint It Cool News: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/53531.
I’ll get around to mine sometime in the future.
Speaking of movies, I’m going to try to catch a preview screening of Ghost Rider™: Spirit of Vengeance tomorrow night. It’ll be the first film I’ve seen since starting this blog, so IT WILL BE THE FIRST FILM REVIEW. I’m not certain it’s deserving, or maybe my blog isn’t deserving of that film. WE’LL SEE.
The other chain letter thing isn’t really a chain letter yet, but it will be after I’m done with it. I hope. Fishamaphone’s post on Angel Moxie really does something I wish to do with this blog, but haven’t achieved yet. Hopefully I can compliment his piece with one of my own, and maybe that might even inspire others to follow our lead. Angel Moxie and The Venis Board were both a big part of my life for a long time. It’s kind of fallen out of fashion, and isn’t the popular place it once was, but it’s still my home page. I’d love for it to return to it’s former glory, but that’s probably not realistic. In any case, it’s worth writing about.
Anyways, that’s all for now. Until later.
