I live on the second floor of a two-story house. My room faces west, so it gets pretty hot in the setting sun, and especially with the summer coming up, that’s becoming even more of a problem. Thankfully, there are now reflective drapes covering the window, so when the sun decides to try and bake me to a golden crisp, it will actually fail, because the sunlight and energy will reflect back out the damn windows. So far, it’s been working fairly well.

I went back for yet another day of Dance Dance Revolution. I’ve decided to set a little goal for myself with the game; I need to pass Afronova with a perfect on basic by the end of the month. I think it’s a doable goal, and plus, the song is just really difficult to pull off. Right now, I manage a C on the average, though today I managed a B rating. Afronova is a song that my friend Todd can blaze through with an A rating. Consider the fact that I introduced him to this game in the first place, he’s already passed me up. This is kind of embarrassing. I’ll get back on the horse. Yesterday, I played four games before my knees started to scream, and I had to walk it off. Today, I made it through six games before my knees started to scream, and my legs started in as well. My thighs and calves, and especially my shins. As I kept walking, though, my knees felt like they were going to pop the cap right off with each step, so I had to sort of shake it out. That’s what did back in high school. Got a pain? Shake it out! I kept walking until the pain subsided, after all, stopping will make it hurt even more later, so I limped to the car and back a few times to just let my muscles return to their previous state of not painful.

On the way home, I passed by a Subway and picked up a plain roast beef, with a little mustard on a wheat bun. I drank two glasses of water and then took a vitamin C tablet. I’m trying to boost the hell out of my immune system, since my boss at work comes to work sick, and doesn’t give much of a shit about getting the rest of us sick, as well.

Maybe I’ll do another live show tonight. Maybe…
