1.  My aunt Hope (my stepfather's sister) passed away on Sunday morning at the age of 63.   She was in great health, great spirits, and then suddenly she was in the hospital with pneumonia and meningitis; she spent 5 weeks in a medicated coma, and slowly fell apart.  Her death is as tragic as it is horrifying.  The family is in a great deal of pain, shock and bewilderment.  

2.  Between that and the sudden burst of pollen in the air, I've been feeling pretty shitty.  I've also been feeling like a fat fuck; I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror yesterday as I waited in line for lunch, and my slight but supple moobs left me feeling ashamed.  While I was upstate this weekend for the funeral, I bought myself Wii Fit; I need to get in shape, but I also need to trick myself into doing it, because I am a lazy bastard.  I've been getting up early the last 3 days and getting into it; I have broken a light sweat but that may just be because it's been fucking crazy hot in our apartment.

3.  I have been in a deep Genesis obsession for the last month or so, and it was starting to drive me a little bonkers.  But I've found a great tonic for it - I've now become fully obsessed with Mastodon's "Crack the Skye".  I've never been one for heavy metal, but these guys are fucking amazing and it's way more prog than I was expecting.  I'm not sure if I'll get the earlier albums, though; everything I've read is that this one is less thrashy and more tune-ful, and I must admit I'd rather listen to that instead.

I'm still wondering what I'm going to do with this journal.  In the meantime, I'm on Facebook.
