Song mood: Video Killed the Radio Star by Buggles.  I think a most appropriate song for my mood.  Nothing bad, nothing really bad.  I find myself to be rather antiquated.  I shave, when I do shave, with a safety razor and I drive a stick shift.  Although I print, old habit of a drafter as Autocad began to be en vogue, instead of write with all its loops, and if that makes me a bad person, I’m okay with that.

I saw a friend from my college days, he was tugging his two boys in the mall.  It made me think of my last college days, the ones I’m more fond of.  I haven’t seen my best friend from college in about six months now, and I’m a little sad about that.  This friend that I spoke to tonight, my best friend and I used to hang out and have philosophical discussions and I would listen to the other two speak in Japanese as my Japanese was never quite good enough.
I remember being in the cafeteria and this guy told me that he wrote this short story about a Japanese guy.  The guy worked for a company and like all other Japanese people had to conform to the people around him.  One day the guy decided to get a haircut that was different.  He went to work and was ridiculed for doing something different.  So the guy completed suicide by throwing himself against a train.  I asked the friend about the story a few years ago and he said he never wrote such a story.  But I remember him telling me about this story.  But I don’t argue because there is no sense in arguing on something that was very trivial.

Tomorrow I will write.  I won’t project how much I will write.  So I’m hoping to be productive.  I will work on my project and then maybe a poem.  I’ll probably walk around in the mall for exercise and torture myself and walk past the boots I so want to buy.  I think they maybe the perfect boot for the moment.  Black combat boots by Dr. Martens that are stylish and hopefully comfortable while walking 5 to 10 miles a day.

I think at some point I will cosplay the 13th Doctor.  I just need to buy a brown apron, goggles and her sonic screwdriver.  And at the time of dressing up, bleach my hair.  To be dyed purple or red afterwards.

I think tomorrow I should start writing the fight scene because that is going to be confusing.  Fighting with abilities is difficult to write and make it understandable.  Once I have that scene finished, then I can work out what the characters do to get to that point.

For the poems, I think I will start writing one about Hugin and Munin.  Then one about Yggdrasil.  Who knows what I will be able to do tomorrow, but I must try.

I am in the habit of buying Moleskine journals.  I think they are great.  However, I'm more of a typer than a writer.  And if I ever wrote in my Moleskines as much as I journaled on my computer and for my blogs, I would fill volumes.

Song Mood: Funky Town by Lipps Inc.  As a strange thing happened as I was walking around Wally-world for no reason.  That song had been playing on the radio.  One of the workers of the store was singing the song, after it had played and then I sang it while I was looking for stuff.  Other shoppers were singing it after I passed them.  It was like a chain Funky Town performance in a store.
I am super tired as I am always during this time of the year tired.  Today, I felt a lot of pain in my back and sides, kind of like where my gallbladder used to be.  I stopped eating fried foods a little over a week ago.  Who knows.
I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but something needs to change.  Tomorrow needs to be a new day.
I went to the writer’s group tonight, not that many since the facilitator wasn’t there.
Tomorrow will be a day for taxes.  Then I will attempt to do some writing.  I came up with an idea for the project I’m working on.  Glum triggers Milo’s gift and in the process, M…

It’s been a long day.  I woke up at 4:30am, hungry.
I went to Walmart to do the weekly grocery shopping.  I went to the lake.  I didn’t go out really.  Tomorrow will much of the same.
I didn’t get much of anything done, except for getting groceries and exercise.
I did watch The Pale Horse, a movie on Prime based off of Agatha Christie’s novel by the same name.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I haven’t read the novel and at this time I’m not sure I would have time, or it would be down the list by a lot.  I was most impressed with the wife in this little mini series that was the length of a movie.  The way she knifed a pillow, just gave me the chills.  And I thought that if I ever married Agatha Christie, I would sleep with one eye open.  She plotted out thousands of deaths within the hundreds of books she published.  I have a feeling that if I were married to her, she would have me on a leash and I would be happy because I would actually learn how to write mysteries.  Rufus Sewell has to b…
