Spagetti Night

Now comes Wednesday, that day that is reserved for Spagetti Night. I don't know who or why Spagetti night was born. I do know the where: Blacksburg, VA. The SF, or anime, or whatever crowd it was got together on a Spagetti night to eat and watch movies. This tradition was carefully brought to Northern Vriginia by my friend Barb. Now she and her husband hold this grand tradition in their townhouse.

I began visiting Spagetti Night after I broke up with Heather. Wednesdays had been a Heather day. Feeling a bit of a gulf after the breakup, I really really needed a distraction. The trip is a bit long, especially with lots of traffic, but I make made my way there and made a few new friends.

For movies, we generally watch what someone has brought to us. You never know what will be brought. Sometimes it's really a movies, sometimes some TV, and other times, real TV. You don't know. I certainly never know. I have seen films that I would never have bothered to watch if left to my own druthers. I'm not saying that the films were bad, just that I would not have picked them. Examples include ephemeral films from the 40's and 50's, Brother Where Art Thou, Junkyard Wars, Bertie and Wooster, Shaolin Soccer, 13 Ghosts, and so on.

In the meantime, my to-do list is growing: get my eyes checked and get new lenses for my glasses, sign up for a psychology couse over at the local community college, finish up my employment paperwork, get the muffler fixed, the the car inspected, get the car into it's 60k tuneup. I'm sure there's more to that list that I don't want to think about. I have not been in a paperwork mood.

Happiness Is....

I looked through my list of people with similar interests, and I found very few readable journals. All kinds of suffering is out there, folks. That got me down. Fortunately, I persevered, and now I have joined the "Happy" list. This should help brighten my day a bit, and I hope it brightens yours, too.
