Jeans, cleans, books and screens

I was actually fairly productive for a Sunday, one in which I slept in later than usual because I was up late last night. I did a fair amount of cleaning this morning. I cleaned the kitchen, the bathroom, vacuumed the house, and did a ton and a half of laundry.

Then I headed over to Target to buy myself some Levis because I’m not too thrilled with the look, sturdiness and price of the Gap jeans I’ve been buying lately. In fact, at Target, I bought three pairs of jeans for just over the price of one pair of Gap jeans. And I bet the Levis last longer.

Last night I watched the first 5 episodes of Heroes, which, as Norm and Vicky predicted, I very much enjoyed and will continue to watch (more on this tomorrow). Because the TV is out and because I was still craving to watch good television, I decided to start watching episodes of Battlestar Galactica from the beginning. I headed over to TGI Friday’s for lunch and, with new video iPod in hand, started watching the mini-series while I ate my lunch. It was pretty cool (not to mention anti-social!).

I did a little more reading in Lunar Prospector today and I’m through 400 pages. I saw a new book coming out, a biography of Harry Houdini called The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Super Hero. The title fascinated me for multiple reasons, so I ordered the book from Amazon, along with Ray Bradbury’s new book, a sequel to his famous, Dandelion Wine called Farewell Summer.

My neighbor thinks that my DirecTV problem from this morning might not have been wind, but instead a Halloween prank. He said he found the street sign for our street on his lawn this morning. Regardless, the problem should be fixed in time for the new episode of House on Tuesday.

It was definitely darker earlier this evening. It feels much later than it is right now.
