Hello, internet. You should all be told now - when I have little interaction with any of my offline friends for two weeks, I get chatty
. So. Today went from Awesome to Bad to Worse to Better to Awesome Again.
It started out when I went to my Kung Fu class this morning. I was walking the two blocks from my house to the dojo. My house is on a nice, quiet street, Dojo is on a major street. Located in a sort of... triangle from the two locations is an orphanage which has a little natural area that a bunch of red foxes live in. They hunt along a ditch that runs underground from the orphanage and opens up close to the dojo. I was at the busy street, about to cross at a light to get to the dojo, and whoosh
this fox jumps up from the ditch, races across the quiet cross street, and runs past me, rounds the alley corner, and is gone. It was a young one, or just small - about a foot tall and two feet long. And I know this because it was A FOOT AWAY FROM ME. Just... just... just... squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
When I got into the dojo, I went to the bathroom to change into my uniform... and threw up. So they sent me home. This was about... 11:15.
I got home, fell asleep, watched some tv, and then about 1:30, ate some lunch. And then I threw up again.
Then, tired and icky and upset, I poked around on the internet. And saw the The 11th Doctor
. I know wank is coming from all over the place about the choice, but I like him. He's really young, yes, but he's kinda... weird lookin'. I always felt Tennent looked too normal for the Doctor, but this guy looks like a younger 9. (Also, this fits with me and my friend's theory that Time Lords age backwards, and that the wizard Merlin was a Time Lord.) Also, I was able to eat dinner and keep it down.
And finally, the awesome again part. There's an indie movie theatre downtown. Once a month, they find rare/significant/historic movies and show them for free. We went this week, and the movie was Fred Astaire and Ginger Roger's Top Hat
. This... this was one of my favorite movies as a kid. This was the reason I wanted a top hat. Seeing in on the big screen was, like... the universe's way of apologizing for me feeling like crap. Thanks, Universe.
Okay, that's it. I'm going to go sleep some more, 'cause I'm just... bleh.
