Coffee or tea. Which is the right drink for me?

Woke up extremely late, 11:45. Didn't want to get out of bed but my kid insisted on going I. The front and watching TV. Not my ideal way of starting the afternoon.

Lila woke up a few minutes later and asked me to make coffee while she cleaned up. I also made Mac and Cheese at this point. I am in a state of confusion. I feel like I'm wandering through life.

I need something to do, I don't want a hobby. A hobby is just a fancy way of saying "I'm spending money." I want something that will bring in cash. A job. But I'm so lazy and I hate working and I hate people, what am I to do?

I know, I will sit on this stupid recliner, eat and get fat, like world's fattest, fat. Then, maybe, I will get on Maury Povich and I'll get paid to lose weight and some diet and weight loss company will hire me to be their spokesperson.

Things are looking up!

Now, excuse me. I have a date with a bag of Doritos.

Men? Policemen?

Today, as I was watching my kid watch her marathon of Sesame Street on our Apple TV, I developed a sudden headache of epic proportions. I ended up sleeping for about 45-minutes at three different times throughout the day, I also had about twelve Advil and that only made me feel about 40% better.

Today is also the day I remembered that a cheese and tomato sandwich is probably the best sandwich ever.

My head started feeling better after my last nap at around 9:30PM, which is an awful time for a nap seeing as how it’s now five-in-the-morning and I’m watching Blade Runner and writing a blog post. I’ve tried closing my eyes, but it’s like they’re spring loaded and wont stay shut. I’ve tried reading boring things on the interwebs and that usually puts me to sleep, but tonight, not so much.

I suppose the reason I’m not sleepy is because a wild-hair climbed up my butt and decided it would be a good idea to invest in the stock market. I thought it would be real nice to actually have a use for the stocks app on my phone, and the potential income would be a great benefit, but I figured it’s too late to invest in the companies that I give two hoots about. I’ve got about $500 that I could invest, but that would buy one share of Apple, and a couple of shares of Coke. Unfortunately, while having a nice chunk of money in the future would be nice, I need cash now.

After my dreams of being the next Warren Buffet faded away, I decided to turn on Blade Runner. I actually love this movie, but I often forget how much love I have for it. Every time I watch it, I appreciate some little detail, a silent stare or a head tilt and I am reminded at how much of a masterpiece it truly is.

Another interesting thing is the whole “Is Deckard a replicant or not” sub-plot, once you know about it, every word, reaction shot, blank stare, every question becomes a possible hint to the fact that Deckard is as clueless to his own humanity as Rachel is when first being interviewed. Blade Runner brought up the theory of questioning our own humanity seventeen years before The Matrix slowed down its first bullet.

There’s nothing quite like it, and there hasn’t been anything like it since. I cannot think of one movie that comes close to what Blade Runner delivers. 

I’m going to finish re-watching Deckard fight Pris, and I’ll watch Batty beg his father for more life, and maybe then I’ll dream of Electric Sheep.
