Fireworks? (Check.) Beer? (Che-zzeck.) Movies? (Double check.) Visits from out of town buddies. (Check, Check.) Indian food? (Strangely enough, check.) This past weekend was a pretty sweet blast. Matt came down on Friday and we celebrated his last moments of freedom before lax camp by skateboarding, getting some Chipotlé (which lasted me all of three days to eat. A-maze-ing.), watched Public Enemy (Which was actually quite good. Even had a surprise ending!), drank a little bit and had an exciting bit of porch-hopping. That, my friends, was only Friday. We’re off to a good start, to say the very least.

Saturday was a bit of an adventure. Jen and I went hunting for an Indian Restaurant in Canton, found it, ate copious amounts of Indian food. Now, it wasn’t just a restaurant, mind you, it was an all-you-can-eat buffet. Normally, I’d welcome the challenge to stuff myself with delicious chicken, but I’ve never really had Indian food before. Granted, after probably consuming close to, oh, say six or so whole chickens, I decided that enough was enough and I was going to finish every little last piece of Naan bread available. Friends, of all my poor judgment calls of my entire life, this was quite possibly the most delicious of them all. I could barely move post food madness. I almost ‘chickened out’ from having the almond-tapioca desert. (Oh man, that was really bad…)

Simply because today being a the drudge-filled Monday, and with a general abundance of uninspired behavior, I started to flip through the DSM-IV just for kicks at lunch. I used to do it as a kid, so why not during my idle lunch? Anyways, I found some cool symptoms of psychological maladies! (Isn’t it funny the things we find interesting?)

Alice in Wonderland syndrome: A syndrome of distorted space, time and body image. The patient with the Alice in Wonderland syndrome has a feeling that their entire body or parts of it have been altered in shape and size. The syndrome is usually associated with visual hallucinations.

A lucid dream is a dream in which the sleeper is aware that he or she is dreaming. When the dreamer is lucid, he or she can actively participate in and often manipulate the imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Lucid dreams can seem extremely real and vivid depending on a person’s level of self-awareness during the lucid dream

Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is the burning of the human body without an external source of ignition.

Déjà vécu is what most people are experiencing when they think they are experiencing deja vu. Déjà vu is the sense of having seen something before, whereas déjà vécu is the experience of having seen an event before, but in great detail – such as recognizing smells and sounds. This is also usually accompanied by a very strong feeling of knowing what is going to come next.

Prosopagnosia is a phenomenon in which a person is unable to recognize faces of people or objects that they should know. People experiencing this disorder are usually able to use their other senses to recognize people.
I feel like a clockwork Gomez Addams.

I’m just missing a couple of cogs.
