So it's after 2 AM...
...and I'm playing a game of Freecell.
...and I'm taking over Shane MacGowan's part in "Fairytale of New York" (which is by far the most enjoyable Christmas song I've heard. I definitely recommend it to anyone who...is anyone. And even to people who aren't).
...and the the next song on my playlist is "What Can You Get A Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb)?" Now, honestly, this is the most unreasonable song I have ever heard. Is it really reasonable to offer "love and understanding" to a Wookie for Christmas? In the movies it's shown that they don't like losing, and I, for one, am willing to make the jump and say that a Wookie wouldn't accept that kind of present for any holiday. Also of note, as warmhearted as Chewbacca may be, he's still a smuggler, and as such, I would expect him to want something more tangible in a present. (Most important note: Would Wookies even celebrate Christmas? I think the entire song hinges on the answer to this question. Honestly.)
...and I think The Blues Brothers
is an amazing film. Probably the best thing to come out of Saturday Night Live.
...and I'm tired of seeing all these Girls Gone Wild
commercials during the breaks. Honestly. If I hear that girl say It's my first time...
one more time, ..I'm going to change the channel? Or just stop watching the movie.
...and I was feeling glorious because I managed to write the code for my computer science class in a very simple way (when I expected it to be otherwise). Even though all this means now is that I'm caught up. Which means that I have homework to do. Huzzah! (Basically, I'm back in Berkeley early for summer school (taking an introductory computer science course (which I didn't have
to take, but not only did I want to, I would have to retake at some point because of my lazy buminess)).
...and I am still filled with wonder from hearing a bunch of drunks at the Big C
singing "Bog Down in the Valley," a song I never expected to hear performed live, by drunks from Ireland. The song is similar to "The Green Grass (Grows All Around)" or whatever the proper title for that song is. (Honestly, it's amazing what music can do to me. I was having a terrible day last semester (it was Finals Week) and my roommate's playlist started playing a Sum 41 song (Pieces) and as I heard it, I realized it was structured the same as Coldplay's "The Scientist." ..Exactly the same. And just realizing it made me feel wonderful. ..Which is incredibly lame. Just as realizing John Mayer's contribution in Common's "Go" is the background "go." I'll return to this topic. Later. Possibly.) This is another view of the Big C
. But, why was I there? This is the view
though in person it's amazing (particularly on a clear day) (Visible in the photo is University Avenue (the bright street on the right), the Campanile (the clocktower) ...and that's it). Basically, although I was around four miles from the nearest fireworks show, I could see three going on from on the hill. And that was a new, enjoyable experience.
...and it is now after four, and I don't think I'm going to be working on my homework anytime soon. Even though I don't feel tired in the slightest. Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah.
But, that is all for now, but I offer two things:
1) For girls: How odd would it be if a guy walked up to you, told you you looked particularly attractive one day, and just walked away? I've been wondering about that for a while, just how a girl would take that.
2) I figure since I have the space to, I offer some of the songs I've mentioned:Christmas in the Stars - What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas
"Bog Down in the Valley
"The Pogues and Kristy MacColl - Fairytale of New YorkColdplay's "The Scientist" and Sum 41's "Pieces" (Mashup)
