Aha! My ghost hunting buddy came through and is planning to come by tonight for some paranormal activity. This makes me incredibly excited, and now I'm in a rush to make sure everything is charged and ready to go when he gets here. I haven't been ghost hunting in a while, and have become "paranormally frustrated", as I like to say. But tonight is looking good, and I'm hoping the wind does not pick up too bad. I really would love to be able to properly test my new recorder. Our testing grounds are outside, but eighty percent of the time we get results, so there you go. On the flip side to that, this might be the only ghost hunting trip for a while, since he works and my summer classes start in a week and a half. Weekends, as always, are the only hope. Well, you get what you can, right?

Happy World Goth Day! I hope it's filled with darkness and gloom. A picnic at the local cemetery, perhaps? Sounds absolutely lovely. I'll bring the wine and the glasses. You got the food, right? Good, I love Italian. We shall have a grand time.
Speaking of cemeteries, I'm dying (no pun intended. I didn't realize I wrote that until I started proofreading) to get some ghost hunting in before summer classes start. My usual ghost hunting buddy is stuck an hour away with no car, so I'm thinking about hitting up the local online scene and seeing if there's any willing bodies to come test equipment with me. So... if you're in the Denton, Texas, area... hit me up. These next two weeks are open and free.
My Creature Feature hoodie came in the mail yesterday! Very exciting. Not that I can wear it outside in the Texas heat, but, I have it nonetheless.
Freddy has got a new friend. One who understands the plight of not always winning.
Loki, Loki, Loki. You are now added to my collection.
Yes, droogs, I finally got to see The Avengers. I would readily watch it again. I'm not a big Marvel fan, but it was quite engaging, but I do like Iron Man. And obviously, Loki.
I also got to see Dark Shadows, as it opened this week. And.... I should have seen Avengers again. Don't get me wrong, the acting and the visuals were great, but the story line was too compact and confusing. Okay, I get there's a witch and a vampire throughout the whole movie. Why the hell is there a werewolf in the last fifteen or so minutes? It should have been a trilogy or something, but I don't know if that would have helped. Shadows was shorter than Avengers, but it felt twice as long. Although I quite enjoyed Jackie Earle Haley's character.
Did anyone else see either movie? What were your thoughts?
Soft, slightly depressing classical music is getting me in the mood for finals. That's all I've been doing for the past week and that's all I'm doing for the next four days. After that, my parents may or may not get surprise visit for Mother's Day. Then, more job searching. The library position is not looking to be my ticket. Now I'm eyeing a desk clerk job that promises not to get in the way of summer classes. Just got to get a cover letter done, and I'm good to go.
Perseverance, my friends!
On a sidenote, there is a high possibility I will get to see both The Avengers and Dark Shadows this weekend. Loki, Johnny Depp, and JEH! Yet again, finals are in the way.
That's right everybody, it's Batman Day. A day for fighting crime and talking in gruff voices. So let us take a moment (read: two and a half hours) to honor this hero by watching Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Tonight, let's keep the streets clean and just let Batman watch the game, mmkay?
Whoever "R. Mais" is, this is their artwork. Apparently my web searching abilities are not good enough to find them online.
