I am MORE than ready for the weekend. MORE than ready.
However, since I've had this new job, I've had the desire to work on Saturdays. Sigh.
It hasn't happened yet. And I don't plan on doing so no time soon. Besides, this weekend I have a writing group meeting. It is way too far from my house, but hopefully there's no highway construction or accidents. Last month, a 40 minute drive turned into a 2 hour drive. I ain't down for that. NO!
I am looking forward to making the 40 mile trek to the deep deep eastside suburbs. The people in the group are super nice. I find myself sitting their thinking, "Gee... I wish I could be this nice."
I have one of those strange personalities. I think about it a lot these days. I find as I get older, I don't like being like everyone else? Why? Because I can't tell people apart these days. I rarely find people with abstract passions. Everyone likes the same things, and they look at anyone who feels something different as being an oddball. I don't know... I just get bored with the status quo. I like different stuff. I don't know if that makes sense or not. But it is what it is.
That's just been on my mind lately, I suppose. It is what it is. I think I am just getting older. I definitely do NOT think the way I thought about things some 10 years ago. No way. Ugh. I have grown. And that's a good thing.
Anyway, this is a huge weekend. Jurassic World comes out today.
I'm going to see that. Not this weekend. I have to let the crowds die down. Next weekend. I want to see that in 3D-IMAX.
I remember some 23 years ago (has it been that long?), I went to see Jurassic Park at Lenox Mall. It scared me so bad. I was all shook up after the movie. I was walking outside on the sidewalk along the side of the mall and a pigeon swooped down. I thought it was one of those flying dinosaur things. Let's just say that people got a good laugh out of my reaction.
I didn't mind the laughter. I walked right on across the street to Phipps Plaza to see What's Love Got to Do with It. That was a good day.
Also, the new season of Orange is the New Black comes out today!
The first season was great. The second season was pretty good, although far more risque. No I don't particularly sit down and binge watch. A few people I know are going to do so this weekend. I will watch it over a one or two week period. It is just so rare for me to just sit and watch anything all day long. I will be laid up on the sofa dosing in and out if I do, and I would have to go back and watch stuff all over again.
The season finale of Game of Thrones is on Sunday.
Now THAT is what I'm truly looking forward to. The last couple of episodes have had me all...
Not a time for compassion, dear. Kill or be killed. That is all.
So yes... I am looking forward to the weekend. Indeed.
It's gonna be a HOT weekend in the ATL, with temperatures in the low 90s. At least it won't be raining.
With heat like that, I will be sticking around the house as much as possible... On purpose.
I hope you have a great summer weekend on purpose too!!!
