Okay, so, I realize it’s Valentine’s Day, and that people doing google searches for “anti-valentine’s day” have increased site traffic to levels higher than we’ve ever seen before at Modern Evil*, but I’ve personally been ‘officially’ single since before Valentine’s Day, 1998, and have no intention of celebrating Valentine’s Day more than I already have today. Oh, and it is Arizona Statehood Day, by the way. That’s right, back in… 1912, I guess, on February the 14th, Arizona became the 48th state of the United States. The last contiguous state so far. So hooray for that!
Oh, but something more relevent to my life also happens today; Daredevil opens. Now, I’m not that big of a comic book guy, I don’t think Ben Affleck was the best choice for the role, and there are some other movies coming out soon that I’m actually really, really looking forward to (ie: Matrix sequels, and increasingly the Hulk, plus I’m looking forward to Love Liza more than Daredevil, if that speaks to you), but I am a movie kind of guy, and will certainly enjoy Daredevil when I see it later today. SO, I’m inviting you to join me.
Which is quirky, because I don’t know when or where I’ll be seeing it, or with whom yet. I believe my younger brother and sister may be interested in going to go see it, and maybe Art and Callie as well. I know Zoe and Amy will be seeing it as part of a date, probably on their side of town, and I respect their celebration of the holiday (and more importantly of their relationship). Who else may be interested in seeing it, I do not know, but this is the sort of fun movie that most everyone can have a good time seeing, and may be more fun in a larger group. Since no one has let me know what my plans are yet (that’s the way most of my social activities go – if someone wants to do something with me, they just have to tell me when and where), I beleive it may end up being first-come, first-served. That is, whoever contacts me first with the most reasonable plan will probably dictate the plan that I try to get everyone who calls me later to conform to.
Now a little on my sleep: (totally optional reading)
For those of you who read my other post about the fact that I haven’t been to sleep yet since I woke up Thursday morning, don’t worry about calling me to early. I will be going to sleep right after I finish this post and brush my teeth, but if you call and I’m too tired to get the phone to my ear, you’ll leave a voicemail and if I wake up enough to put the phone to my ear but not enough to make plans, I’ll let you know by drooling on you. Ask around. I can drool on you through the phone. Probably though, the phone ringing will bring me up to 98%-103% consciousness immediately, and we can pretend I was never sleeping.
For those of you keeping track of my sleep cycles for me, you may realize that by this time of the month, my body wants to be almost a full 12 hours off its normal cycle. That is, by the middle of the month, my body seems to want to be completely nocturnal. Then by the end of the month, I would be the equivalent of a ‘morning person’. Except that because of the moving schedule, I keep having to wake up between 6 and 8 AM. Which has been throwing me off. Two weeks ago I was naturally waking up at 6AM with no problem, but the last few days it’s made doing hard physical labor all day even harder. Consequently, that was probably why my body seems to be fine with staying up all night tonight; it thinks this is much more normal than what I’ve been doing the last few days.
Anyway, I really am going to go try to get some sleep now so I can get up in time to see Daredevil later. Go Kevin Smith cameo!
