Currently Events

I've been neglecting this poor blog terribly of late, I know. *strokes poor neglected blog apologetically* Well, at least there's always this memey thing...

Current clothes: My old "save Farscape" fundraiser t-shirt with the words "Irreversibly Contaminated" on it. Blue jeans. Black belt. White socks. Black sneakers.

Current mood: Pretty good. In fact, I've been in a pretty good mood for a while now. I'm also starting to get a little sleepy... It's nearly 5 AM, so it's coming up on my bedtime.

Current music: I was listening to some random-shuffle music on the iPod earlier, but I don't remember what most of it was. The most recent (albiet non-musicy) thing I've listened to was the commentary for the latest Doctor Who episode, which I've been playing while doing a bit of housework.

Current annoyance: Hmm. Remarkably little is annoying me at the moment, actually.

Current thing: Living a nocturnal existence. First I worked my own week of night shifts, then I traded with someone else for his week of night shifts. This week, I don't have a set time I have to be in, but I'm on nights again for the weekend, so I haven't bothered to adjust my sleep schedule any. Actually, being awake when everybody else is asleep and vice versa does come with a few annoyances, but overall I'm quite enjoying it.

Current desktop picture: This extremely cool lunar eclipse picture.

Current song in head: It appears to be David Bowie's "Golden Years."

Current book: Eddie Bear, Private Detective, which contains two humorous fantasy novels by Robert Rankin: The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse and The Toyminator. I've just finished the first one. It's written in a deeply silly style that teetered a bit between annoying and amusing for me for a while, but ultimately I found it pretty entertaining. Well, hey, I think it'd take a lot to make me dislike a book with a title like that. I do have to say that I think I slightly prefer Jasper Fforde's take on the whole "murder mystery with nursery rhyme characters," though. (And, man, that's kind of an odd sentence to type, when I stop to think about it. Is this becoming some kind of weird new subgenre?)

Current DVD in player: Nothing at the moment. I finished the last disc of The Greatest American Hero a while back. Next up is Richard III, the WWII version with Ian McKellen, but I keep not getting around to it.

Current refreshment: I had some lemon-ginger herbal tea a while ago.

Current worry: Poor Vir-kitty is getting pretty wheezy and/or snotty. When he went to the vet for his checkup a few months ago, I was told he probably had a touch of asthma, or maybe allergies, but he wasn't doing too badly then, so it didn't seem to be worth worrying about. It's definitely starting to bother him a bit now, though. Hell, it's starting to bother me. I can hear the poor critter breathing from across a room. He's got a vet appointment tomorrow. I'm just hoping he doesn't need some horribly unpleasant and expensive treatments or anything.

Current thought: Yes, getting sleepy. I should finish this up, listen to the rest of that Doctor Who commentary thing, and get some sleep so I can get up at the crack of 3:00 to take Vir in for his appointment.


  1. Sounds like a good book. May I borrow it?

  2. Remind me before the next time I see you. :)
