you'd think i'd know better than to read a thread about ghosts online shortly before i'm headed to bed, knowing how much nighttime tends to freak me out on its own. i'm fine if i have someone else in the room, but if i'm alone (and being the only one awake, with the other folks in a bedroom across the apartment counts as alone) i start imagining things in every closet and checking over my shoulder. and i can't go into a bathroom at night without reaching over to turn on the lights before i enter the room. yes, i read too many ghost stories as a kid. i was one of those silly kids who had to have every bit of their body tucked into the covers when they slept, lest something reach out from under the bed and take off a limb in my sleep. i've gotten better as an adult, but not by much. the office light and the bathroom light will be staying on tonight.
y'all can go ahead and laugh now. =]
y'all are going to laugh item number 2: i've been thinking about getting a tatoo for awhile. i know what and where i want it, but have been putting it off for not wanting to put the money into it and well, being chicken. Catherine and i found ourselves in a costume store this week, that had fake ones for two dollars or so, so i got one and placed it where i would put a real one (left leg, right about the ankle) to make sure that i didn't absolutely hate the idea of having something on my skin like that after all. i don't. in fact, i rather like it. i know a couple day test isn't the same thing as forever, but it's something to think about once i'm back in the land of the employed and have money for stuff like that.
heh. can't wait to see what my mother has to say about that one, if i go through with it. someone remind me to pack a lot of socks when i go home for christmas, and to wear them... =]
i go back to cali tommorow, to pack up. whee. i've had an awesome time in boston - i really missed Dan and Catherine.
we tried to see "The Fast and the Furious" today. we failed, due to completely getting mixed up on what times it was showing.
hrm. 12:30. i prolly ought to get to bed soon.
