Drifting With The "Currently"

Current clothes: Black t-shirt with a picture of the Milky Way galaxy and an arrow saying "you are here." Blue jeans. Black belt. White socks. Black sneakers.

Current mood: Pretty good. Especially by contrast with yesterday, when I was feeling all cranky and irritable and full of vague existential angst. I think the difference is almost entirely attributable to the fact that I got plenty of sleep today. It's almost frightening how dependent my mental state is on my sleeping patterns.

Current music: I've been listening to randomly-generated playlists again. Most recently played: an extended version of the theme song to Angel.

Current annoyance: My eyeglass frames are slightly out of alignment, and my roof is leaking again. And all that helpful, restorative sleep I got today occurred during precisely the hours when I could have done anything about those problems.

Current thing: Being even more obsessive than usual over Doctor Who.

Current desktop picture: This wallpaper from the BBC's official Doctor Who website, featuring the Doctor and a guest character who shows up toward the end of the season.

Current book: The World According to Garp, since I didn't get to it on my trip. It's taking me forever to read it, though. I keep getting distracted by random shiny things. Like Doctor Who.

Current song in head: "I Can't Decide" by the Scissor Sisters. Which is also Doctor Who's fault, damn it.

Current DVD in player: Disc 5 of season one of Supernatural. Having seen most of the season now, I still think the premise is interesting, and I still like the characters, but I just really haven't been able to get all that into it. Which is kind of sad, as it seems to be a lot of Farscape fans' new televisual obsession of choice, and I was kind of hoping I'd be able to follow them there.

Current refreshment: Nothing at the moment. I had some lemon-ginger green tea a little while ago. That was very nice.

Current worry: That the goddamn roof is going to keep deciding to start leaking about once a year, which does seem to be its current pattern. And I'm not sure if it's still under warranty any more, either.

Current thought: "I can't decide whether you should live or die..." Damned supervillains and their evil plots to get songs stuck in people's heads.


  1. I got into Supernatural - Hardy Boys with blood - and the Pete's wife borrowed my copy and got into it.

  2. "Hardy Boys with blood" is an astonishingly good description of it. :)

    I'm debating whether or not to bother with season 2... I probably will. A couple of people have told me that it's better than season 1.

  3. DR Who. Worth the wait. Love it.

  4. Glad you're enjoying it! The season starts out just plain fun, IMO, and then proceeds to go some very different and very interesting places... Including some rather controversial places, among Who fans, but I rather think that overall you'll really like it. :)
