So, big idiot that I am, I helped Josh and Sarah move some furniture around on Sunday. For those who are not in the know, let me enlighten you for a moment. I have a bad back. It's my own fault, I'm quite certain, but that doesn't make the pain any less valid, only more, what, justified?
Suffice it to say, I should have known better, and in fact, did know better, than to help move sofas from room to room and door-to-door, but I did it anyone. One couch went into the room I've been crashing in. Another went to the neighbor gals. And the third, the one Josh and Sarah got from some friends, that one, a sleeper sofa, no less, along with a chair and ottoman, went from the moving van to the living room.
The first two were relatively easy to move. Not too heavy. The new chair wasn't too bad, either, nor was the ottoman. That sleeper sofa, however ... oh my FSM, was that thing fuckin' heavy. So here I am, back in knots, pain shooting up and down my spine even when I do nothing other than sit here and type. It actually kind of sucks.
And why, pray tell, did I help move all this furniture? Because Josh and Sarah have been so great to me since I've been out here. Letting me crash at their place, eat their food, annoy their cats. I couldn't not help, y'know? After all they've done for me, and with a little less than a month to go, I felt an obligation to lend a hand.
That'll teach me. I need more pain meds.
The boss is taking Cody and I to see Transformers this afternoon. I can't for the life of me imagine that it'll be good. Fun, sure, but actually good? No way. The very concept is so absurd, isn't? Giant sentient alien robots who turn into GM cars and trucks? WTF? Sure, it was awesome when I was eight and had all the toys, but does everything from 20 years ago really need to make a comeback? Can't we let the past stay buried? They're making a G.I. Joe movie and an animated Thundercats movie. Do we really need these things? Are there truly no original ideas left in the world that we need a Thundercats film?
Two years ago today my friends Ryan and Jami tied the knot, and I was honored to stand by Ryan's side as his best man. I'd like to wish the both of them a happy anniversary, and I hope they have a great day and enjoy their much-needed day off tomorrow.
