It feels like 2004 again - I am spending basically all my time online downloading things to read later, except now I'm putting them on a Kindle instead of just trying to save something to read on one computer while my brother used our dial-up to game on his (yeah, there was the family's computer and then "Richard's computer", even though they were both technically supposed to be shared; I should maybe not be so surprised at his cutrrent levels of dickishness). I have seriously not spent this little time at a computer in years.
Been watching a shit-ton of movies for the 100 movies meme, because it's kind of fascinating, watching this many things for the first time. It's helped by my owning a bunch of movies I bought when the video store shut down but have never actually watched before, like The Quiet.
I'm also not adjusting super-well to the whole 40 hours a week, every week
, thing. I'm stressed out and just tired
all the time and the recent epic fail of my planned week and half of relaxation did not help (Dad in Vegas for a week followed by housesitting for Mom for four days while they were in Missouri = glorious solitude, except no, because I was violently ill that week).
Also, there's the lingering question of what the fuck is happening to the building complex I work in, because Atwoods had minimal damage (where "minimal damage" is lost part of the roof and the entire fucking air conditioning system
, which will take one to two months to replace. In Oklahoma. In summer. FUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOOOUUUUU.), but Atwoods is not a stand alone building, it shares a wall with two other spaces. The whole shebang is something like 14 possible stores, of which about 8 were occupied pre-tornado, and one of the 8 was completely fucking obliterated (they no longer have
a back wall - but still, no injuries!). It was not doing real well, is what I'm saying. There's a good chance the landlady might just 'doze the whole thing rather than pay that much to repair, when all the businesses are trying to move north and further into town/closer to Walmart.
Here! Have a video of the tornado hitting work, because somebody actually shot that shit: From the movie theater behind the store
(especially the roof peeling off at the 1:50 mark).
