I have returned from the land of seashore frolicking to muggy, buggy Minnesota. The drive home was rather grueling, each of the two days taking 12-13 hours. It was Chicago that really did me in. We were stopped in bumper-to-bumper for several hours. There was some construction, but no road blocks or anything that would actually impede driving... except: Thumper III. What is this amazing device, you ask, that has the power to captivate the imagination and bring normally quite speedy drivers to a screeching halt? Well, I'll tell you. It is a large apparatus with a rabbit painted on the side that bangs over and over again on the pavement. I am sure that it is a wondrously labor-saving device. However, the only thing stopping traffic for fucking hours at a time were goddamned minivans full of kids (and who knows who else?) slowing down to crane their necks at the fucking Thumper III. But that is all over now. I can resume being a human being.
We got to use my father's digital camera. It was disorienting, since I am an SLR fan. I've never really gotten used to the parallax thing with viewfinders that don't line up and looking at some weird little screen instead of what I am photographing is even worse.
This weather is lethargy inducing. I am going to have to strip down to me skivvies and knit while watching video games. Then, ice cream.
Why can't I live at the beach instead of a tiny oasis in the middle of vast, vast nothingness? Goddamn you, Midwest.
Also, we saw Batman Begins today and I would just like to reaffirm that Christian Bale is the hottest. (next to J, of course) Katie Holmes wasn't quite as dopey as I expected. That's about all I can say about her. There were lots of shots of her hard nipples, but I suppose mine would be the same in proximity to such dark, seething sexual energy. Also, cheekbones.
