It's That Meme Thing Again

Current clothes: Blue jeans. A white t-shirt with a picture of Brak from Space Ghost. A light blue short-sleeved denim shirt unbuttoned over that. White socks. No shoes.

Current mood: Eh, I seem to be having odd mood swings today. Right this moment, I'm a little edgy in a weird sort of way. Presumably it will pass shortly.

Current music: Nothing in particular. Still listening to random playlists and sundry podcasts, mostly.

Current annoyance: This weird psychological thing I seem to have going on lately, where certain people expressing negative opinions of things I like (or, odder still, positive opinions of things I don't do) makes me feel all personally criticized and inadequate. It's stupid, and it's something that pisses me off when other people do it, so I'd really like it to stop now.

Current thing: Periodically behaving like those people in prescription drug commercials who romp through fields going, "Thanks to Panacea, I have my life back!" Because, yay, my eye no longer hurts (much), and I can concentrate on living my life without a constant voice in the back of my head going, "Ow, myeyemyeyemyeye."

Current desktop picture: This beautiful picture of a moonrise.

Current song in head: Nothing at the moment, but for the last couple of days, off and on, it's been "Should I Call You Jesus?" by Billie Meyers. I'm not entirely clear on the song's theology, but it's damned catchy.

Current book: The Dispossessed by Ursula LeGuin. It's kind of hard to believe that I hadn't read this book before now, actually. But I am enjoying it.

Current video in player: Another tape with last night's 4400 and Venture Bros. Although the latter might have been a rerun again.

Current DVD in player: It was disk one of season 6 of The West Wing, but I finished that and mailed it back to Netflix. I might start in on disk 2 tonight if I have time before work.

Current refreshment: Mango-passionfruit tea. Mmmm!

Current worry: That one day I'm going to wake up screaming in unbelievable pain because half my cornea's peeled off. I am trying to remind myself that the people who post their medical horror stories on internet fora are generally self-selected for being the most extreme cases, as people with mild problems are unlikely to bother. Google, she is sometimes not our friend.

Current thought: Aargh, I should finish this up quickly, answer the e-mail currently demanding my attention, go watch The West Wing, and get ready for work.
