I got home in time to watch the Reagan funeral. What a gorgeous site, i think i'd like to have a funeral up on a hill at sunset too now. It was cool to see Thatcher and Arnie sitting there behind Nancy. You know i was thinking last night, those guys were so larger than life to me when i was a toddler. Reagan and Thatcher and Gorbachev. Reagan was the good guy protecting us against the Russians and their nukes. Thatcher was kicking teh ass at home. I even remember the opposition leader - Neil Kinnock - and i certainly couldn't tell you that today. I don't know if it's because we were stationed in West Germany while my dad was in the army, or if it's just because i was a little kid who didn't know any better, but i've always considered those three leaders real heros. Hmm.
And that time brings up a lot of other thoughts, stuff on the news, stuff on TV, music, i could sorta disappear into it... being a kid... Anyway, three days off work. Much needed, we've all been working really hard. I just wish i had some more money so i could perhaps go out and do something. But instead i'll stay home and watch TV and probably smoke too many cigarettes and just try to relax. I don't know if i'm going to hit my target of 9 cigarettes a day this week. Wednesday was a really shitty stressful day at work. Last night i let things slip with my evening beers and WWE Raw. Tonight is Smackdown. I need to occupy myself better on the weekends and evenings, that's when i slip. Blarg.
