I am learning a lot about living alone this week. It's funny, because I've been living in my apartment without anyone else for like, you know. A month now. But it's just now getting me to think about it. I feel like Hugh Grant in About a Boy -- parceling out units of time to each activity so as to find things to do for each unit of time. This morning, I woke up and spent about five hours cleaning my apartment. I just got up, made a pot of coffee and a mix cd to clean to and got to work. I scrubbed, I washed, I swept, I did all kinds of things. I Febreezed like the wind, you all. Febreezed like the wind.

It's strange, the things you end up doing when there isn't anything else to do. I made skillet corn last night, for example. And millions of cookies. Millions.

Anyway! Everyone's doing this, and I have units of time to fill, people! Help me fill them!

You post a topic, list, category, whatever, in my comments section. (examples: "5 Sexiest Things About Ron Weasley" or "Top 5 things to drink"). Then, in a separate post, I'll post the answers to all your Top 5 ideas, according to me. Then you post this offer in your own journal.

Isn't it? I found it during an icon search I did yesterday. I don't even *know* where, I got another one (the one I'm using) from the same girl. She's LJ user eloquentice, so maybe she has more lovelies.

About a Boy is the whole reason I had to buy a DVD player in the first place. I have an unholy love for Will Freeman.

So I have a funny story to tell you about my DVD player. Though when I say funny, it's actually fairly sad. Several months ago, the battery in the remote died while I was watching Y Tu Mama Tambien, so we had the English subtitles on. I can't manipulate the menu from the actual dvd player itself, so since like...late October, I've been watching everything with English subtitles. Today, I went to go get a new battery at Radioshack and the kindly pizza-smelling man who kept undulating to the really bad music as he replaced the battery assured me that now it would work.

Z, I got home, and it doesn't work. It doesn't work. For the rest of my life I will be watching things that only have a 'Play All' function, and there will always, always be English subtitles.

*hangs head*

That's the saddest story I've ever heard, baby. *pets* If I were rich, I'd buy you a new DVD player. And a plasma screen to watch it on.

You're too good to me. Too good, I say.
