Today it's quite rainy and overcast here in Michigan, which is frankly just something you have to get used to when living here. I for one have always enjoyed the rain. Either because it makes me more productive and usually results in me writing a lot and drinking tea (when combined, the ultimate activity) for the remainder of the day. But it also creates my favorite smell of all, ozone. I love that smell. So my plan is to get some exercise and document my neighborhood in the coming hours.
Also, I'm pretty stoked about a recent DVD purchase I made. I bought season 1 and 2 of the XMen comic cartoons. I get 33 episodes of Wolverine, Beast, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Gray, and, eventually, the Phoenix. I'm freaking stoked. I used to watch this show every day after school... that and Aladdin the show on Disney Channel. Good times.
Other DVD purchases I recently made which have resulted in me banning myself from any electronic-related store include: the Underworld trilogy (even though I already had the first one... but they came in a combined set), Corpse Bride (I love me some Tim Burton), Once, Pan's Labyrinth, and the Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
I also have a large group of books piled up next to my bed. I don't know why I keep them there. I have a bookshelf downstairs, which actually happens to be sort of full... but could easily be rearranged to include some books from my bedroom. But for some reason I like my little (not little) pile of books by my bed. Some of them I've actually finished, but they're my favorites so I keep them close. But there are 27 books total stacked next to my bedside. I read a book a week, or two weeks if it isn't particularly gripping for me. I just like the look of a mound of books. It gets me going in the morning. (That's what she said?) Anyway, the reason I brought this up is that I'm also not allowed into Borders anymore for a long time. Because I obviously don't need to add to the growing pile, no matter how fast I read.
