I’m not quite sure what to write about today. I don’t feel like writing a lot, since I don’t feel like doing much of anything. Basically, last night was alright, if not boring. It was another simple close, with the exception of this one girl who complicated matters. She was expecting one of her friends (I think possibly her boyfriend) to come to the theatre, and he never showed up. She spent most of the time waiting outside the theatre or trying to figure out if he was in one of them. Near the end, she and some of her friends waited outside the theatre that they thought he was in. They sat on the floor against the wall eating candy and waiting, then walking into the theatre and calling his name once the movie was over. I was just inside the doors so I could begin cleaning once everyone was out, and I saw these girls trying to find this guy. They went back to the doors and the main girl was all disappointed and almost freaking out about the whole thing. I figured it was a classic case of infatuation, since she looked about 13 or 14, and so many people that age tend to have their weekly crush. Anyways, the girl checked about three or four times, and as she went for another round, I told her that he wasn’t in this theatre. Everyone was out except for two old people watching the credits, and I wanted her outside so I could start cleaning. They said that maybe he was in another movie, but I told them that this was the last theatre to get out, so he wasn’t here. The girl was all sad, but her friends were comforting her, so I went to work at cleaning the theatre.

Today’s been a crappy day. I’ve had a headache and can’t really think too much or it hurts. I tried reading my Bible this morning like I usually do, but I honestly can’t remember what I read. It just didn’t sink in. Over the course of the day, the headache’s been going away and coming back repeatedly. Because of that, I decided to just take it easy for the day. So, I put in Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi, and watched that. Other than that and laundry, that’s about all I’ve done today. I may just make it a marathon and watch Episodes 4 and 5 as well, since I can’t really do anything that requires the slightest bit of thinking. It’s just not going to happen otherwise. If I had known that my headache wasn’t going to disappear, then I probably would have started with Episode 4 first instead of 6, but whatever. I’ve seen them all before anyways, so it’s not like I’ll be totally disoriented or anything.

Anyways, I’m done for today. This is pushing the limits on my mind right now, and I haven’t even actually had to think all that much in order to write this. If people are doing something tonight, I’ll likely still try going out, just because I want to get out of this house, headache or not. Otherwise, I’ll just curl up and watch the drama unfold as Luke Skywalker battles Darth Vader in a classic movie of good versus evil. If the movies end and I still have time left over, I guess it’s time for Episodes 1 and 2. But I doubt that will happen. I need Episode 3 to hurry up and come out on DVD so I can have the whole series, but they’ll likely wait until Christmas. That’s good, though. Then I can just ask for it for Christmas and not have to pay a cent. But with that said, I’m done. I can’t think anymore. I’m spent.
