Upp! Sala!

Hey ho. What's going in in the loopy life of Leonard these days? WELL WHY DON'T I TELL YOU BECAUSE I BET YOU'RE DYING TO KNOW.

- I had a little mini-party on Saturday; a handful of people came over to the crib and suffered through the miserable heat and the terrifying flyovers of the Air & Water Show in exchange for my dubious company and the fruits of my cooking skillz, which are growing more madd by the day. I think I'm becoming a better cook as time passes, and I wish I had more time to practice. I'd like to get more ambitious, but I'm limited by time and my dinky kitchen.

- I know I've said this before, but I like having smart friends. I tend towards hermitage and stay-at-home loserness, but I can't overestimate how much I enjoy ocassionally having people around who I can talk to about good movies, or to whom I can mention literary theory without them just nodding politely, or who are passionate about music and art. On the other hand, I always beat myself up a little after having a party, because I end up cooking and cleaning and bartending, and while I do my best to socialize, I feel like I'm ignoring people. SORRY PEOPLE!

- The time has come to get my financial shit together. Unfortunately, I don't have any money, so I really don't have any financial shit to get together. Mission accomplished.

- Of course, not having money doesn't keep me from making tons of frivolous purchases. The thing about writing for a living -- in other words, the thing about what I'd like to spend the rest of my life doing -- is that unless you're one of the upper-echelon 1%, you go through long periods of having no money, followed by short bursts of having a lot of money, which you of course want to spend on fun stuff instead of saving for those times when you have no money again. So, having just gotten a check for some freelance stuff I did last month, I naturally socked it in my savings account to pay bills with. HA HA! JUST KIDDING. What I did was go on a DVD spending spree, and am now the pleased-as-punch owner of Season 1 of "Twin Peaks" and Season 2 of "Futurama" (and soon, Season 3 of "Mr. Show" and Season 3 of "The Simpsons"). God, I suck. These DVD anthologies will really tide me over when I'm 60 and living in a hat box.

- I don't like the Aluminum Group. There, I said it.
