It’s been cloudy for two days, so I’m officially the most melancholy girl this side of Gaskins. I always forget why I tend to shun being overly social and do most of my living alone (roughly 12 hours out of my approximately 18-hour day), and then I’m reminded during periods of returning solitude. It’s because when you do get wrapped up in other things — like people, and a constant flow of events — you become dependent on those things in order to feel happy. This is not good, because those things change and pass away and just aren’t to be relied upon in general. Today I almost dove into some retail therapy, which, sadly, is always an instant cure. But I thought better of it and dove into some blogging instead.
I’m excited about the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight. The teaser trailer hasn’t even come out yet, and already it seems like it’s going to be straight-up life-changing. Batman-on-film.com has all sorts of interesting news and tidbits about it, including the fact that Anthony Michael Hall is going to be in it (so you know it’s going to be good). And the contrast between these two web sites that have popped up, ibelieveinharveydent.com and ibelieveinharveydenttoo.com (highlight the invisible text with your cursor. remind you of a certain villain?) is exciting if a little underdeveloped. But most of all, I can’t wait to see Heath Ledger as the Joker. The gother the better, I say.
But on to some links that actually don’t have anything to do with ol’ batsy-watsy:
- Shirt-altering tutorial, for those that are mystified by it. It really is just that easy.
- A nice post on vintage cocktail dresses by Frecklewonder.
- What a neat place; I like how things are organized on the shelves.
- Anne of Green Gables is now on Librivox. Get ready for a revisit!!! All together now.
- These shivaree things sound terrifying.
- Boys no longer have an excuse for dressing so boring.
- Although I’m already attached to my computer via usb-powered heated gloves, I might make some more us-powered heating purchases.
- This is one of the coolest things the internet has ever produced, in my opinion.
Here’s to a full weekend, and to the prospect of avoiding retail therapy as much as possible in favor of tasks such as sewing and croquet-ing.
