I am still getting Cinemax. And even though I am getting a "premium" station for free, I still cannot find the pleasure in this without looking at the negatives, asking myself and my tv, "Why couldn't it be HBO or even Showtime that I get for free? Cinemax?"
I went to Trader Joe's today and while they do sell the fun, cheap things I was expecting, I think this might have been my last trip there for a while, at least until the liquor store opens and I can experience the cheap wine. Yesterday, according to Gawker, there was a line down the block of people waiting to get in. Today, no line to get in, but an insane line at the checkout that snaked around the aisles of the store and took me about twenty minutes to move through.
I still need a job.
Adele and I plan on confronting Jillian and Josh tonight, telling them that Josh has to pay rent if he is going to be every night. Call me an asshole, but I think they are. It's been going on for two years, him here every night. Supposedly, he has another apartment that he pays rent at. I don't fucking care anymore. I am tired of seeing him here all the time. Either they need to spend some time over there, or he needs to start helping with the rent. This is not going to be a fun conversation. I am already nervous about it.
I have a headache, partly induced by this, by my lack of job, by this insanely difficult new payroll program that the Princeton Review is instituting and which I am supposed to log in by five today if I ever want to get paid again, but which I don't know my login to, and which no one else seems to either and five o clock is approaching quickly and Adele is watching Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey on that stupid Cinemax, and that too is adding to the headache.
By the way, Mr. Sammler's Planet is amazing and I will tell you about it soon. This book is exciting me more than anything I have read in a long, long time. I love that feeling of an amazing book, where I scream, as I did yesterday, Shut the Fuck Up! because I cannot believe this writing is so good. But that'll have to wait til this headache cloud passes.
