It's That Meme Thing Again!

Current clothes: Jeans. A gray sweatshirt with a zipper that goes about a third of the way down and the emblem of Royal Caribbean cruise lines on the breast. My Science Fiction Book Club t-shirt under that. White tube socks. A pair of Homer Simpson slippers which are easily the most freakish and disturbing item of clothing I have ever owned. You put your foot into Homer's mouth, and his big googly eyes stare up at you.

Current mood: Eh. I'm pretty much over the cold, but I overslept badly this morning and woke up with a headache. Coffee and juice and a nice, hot shower chased it away, but it seems to have come back. Also, it's extremely cold and dark outside, and I haven't been in to work hardly at all this week, first due to not feeling well and then because the equipment I need to do my job with isn't functioning. (They're supposed to have things fixed tomorrow. We'll see.) It's all left me feeling kind of lethargic and blah, like all I really want to do is hibernate.

Current music: A mix disc put together by a friend of mine. If you're reading this, Stars, thanks!

Current annoyance: Enetation is pissing me off royally. It was never the world's greatest commenting system, but lately it's been getting worse and worse, to the point where it's barely usable. Comments don't show up after they're posted, or show up multiple times. The counter never updates unless I go to their website and force it to do a recount. And now when I'm logged in, it won't bring up the comments at all, which means I can't use any of the handy features, like being able to delete or edit stuff, or even report spam. And I can't even be bothered to go and complain, because they never seem to respond to complaints these days. I've been saying for a long time that the only reason I'm not dropping enetation and switching to Blogger's commenting system, now that they have one, is because it would basically mean losing all the years of comments I've accumulated so far (or at least not having the links to them on the posts, which amounts to the same thing). I'm starting to think that's not too big a price to pay, though. (If anybody wants to chime in with an opinion, feel free. I know most of you Loyal Readers are as pissed off with enetation as I am.)

Current thing: Watching episode after episode of House. I don't know why. They all have the same plot.

Current desktop picture: This picture of bright planets in the sunset sky over the Paranal Observatory in Chile. The Astronomy Picture of the Day website is a wonderful source of wallpaper.

Current song in head: "Addicted to Stress" by Jimmy Infantino. Kind of funny, considering that I seem to be having precisely the opposite problem.

Current book: To Kill a Mockingbird.

Current video in player: Nothing at the moment, but most recently a collection of Warner Brothers cartoons, mostly featuring Marvin the Martian.

Current DVD in player: Disc 4 of House, season 1.

Current refreshment: Lemon-ginger tea.

Current worry: I'm not sure I can work up the energy to feel worried about much of anything.

Current thought: "I'm addicted to stress, that's the way that I get things done..." Aargh! Make it stop!
