Friday Five For 2/28/03

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)? I like Science Fiction and Fantasy novels; a mix between the mass paperback stuff (Dragonlance, Star Wars) and then some heavier stuff (J.R.R Toilken, William Gibson). I also like reading computer books and magazines; either technical stuff or the latest Computer Gaming World. Then of course, there is the waiting for the latest Robert Jordan or Harry Potter novel.
2. What is your favorite novel? There are so many to choose from. I honestly don’t think that I can pick.
3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)
Tygre, tygre, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?
And what shoulder and what art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand and what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears,
And water’d heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee?
Tygre, tygre, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

4. What is one thing you’ve always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read? Don’t really know. I wish that I could read The Bible and understand it a little better. Hmmm. There’s always War and Peace, I guess.

I am tired because I

I am tired because I haven’t been getting sleep lately. Of course, I can chalk up part of it to playing Mechwarrior 4 all night long. **yawn** But even after that, I have been having a hard time sleeping or just not getting a good night’s rest. Well, what can you do. Yeah, I guess I COULD go to sleep earlier, but what would be the fun of that.
So Park Merced (the housing complex that we live in sent us a letter wanting us to sign another year lease and our rent would only go up $100 more. So we are going to start looking for a new place to live. Our lease is up at the end of April, but I’m hoping that if we find something early, then we can get out of our current lease early. We’ll see.
Traveled down to San Jose to see my friend, Mew, since I traveled up the weekend before to see the married couples. I think that I might be the only person in our group that is single right now. Anyway, we talked and talked and had a good time.
What else? Work is getting busier. There are some things that I need to take care of that I have been semi slacking on, because of the whole tiredness thing. Next week, for sure I will get on the ball.
Suppose to be working on an astrology thing for my brother. I need to finish that this week since I told him I would be done with it last week.
Am going to cook some dinner and then get ready to watch some T. V. Hmm, I wonder if I can call in sick tomorrow. Naw. I need to save up all of that time for when I need it.
Need to finish taxes this weekend. I still can’t believe that with all of the interest that I played on my student loans, I am only getting $22 back.
