Friday night I went to Silky's with a bunch of people (nowishere, of course, didn't show up, because she never does), then I went to sundaygray's place to be in the way and generally not be much helping in packing. She gave me a little translucent green rock of some sort that's supposed to be blessed and helpful to me in some way. She wouldn't let me swallow it. Eventually I decided that I should say goodbye before she was driven absolutely crazy by trying to get everything packed since i don't like to watch her get upset by things, and I didn't think my usual tactic of forcing her to relax would be very useful, since she did have to get all of the packing done. So we said goodbye and I promised I'd visit her in 2 weeks.
I'm taking her leaving a lot better than I expected; I haven't had a major psychotic episode yet. I didn't even spend all day in bed crying.
Yesterday I got up at 7am and watched Amélie, making me the last person in the world to see it. I then spent the rest of the day doing pretty much nothing, just like I do every other Saturday. I did do a bit of cleaning of my apartment; there's now actually some open floor space in my living room. In the afternoon I got Absolutely Fabulous Series 3 in the mail from Netflix, and I watched it after picking up Taco bell for dinner because i don't have anything to eat at home. It was much better than Series 2. I don't understand how they can fit 200 minutes of video onto a DVD, but it's a good way to kill 3.5 hours.
Today I spent most of the morning modifying my MP3 tags to work best with iTunes 3. I rated a whole bunch of songs and set "Part of a Compilation?" flags and added "The" back to the names of bands I'd removed it from because iTunes 2 didn't know how to sort correctly.
Later I have to go to State College for dinner with my family, because my sister's flying there to meet with some company. I'm staying overnight and taking a day off from work tomorrow.
