This Again

Current clothes: White t-shirt with a picture of Brak from Space Ghost on it. Blue short-sleeved denim shirt unbuttoned over that. Blue jeans. Black belt. White socks. Fuzzy Eeyore slippers, one of which is missing an ear.

Current mood: Not bad. Kind of relaxed.

Current music: The Best of Bowie.

Current annoyance: One of the cats just did something very smelly in the cat box in the next room. Pheww!

Current thing: Being obsessed with random TV shows, maybe, but there's nothing new about that.

Current desktop picture: This photo of a meteor shower seen from a mountaintop in Romania.

Current book: Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us) by Tom Vanderbilt. I'm only about 50 pages in, but I'm already finding it entertainingly written and very interesting.

Current song in head: "Moonage Daydream." (See "current music.")

Current DVD in player: Disc 3 of season 3 of Supernatural. This isn't a show that's going to win any awards for sophisticated and nuanced writing (although, bless its little heart, it tries), but the more I watch, the more thoroughly I'm enjoying it. (Well, except for that one I just saw, which started out by re-enacting my freakiest recurring nightmare and then showed me maggot-covered food while I was eating spaghetti. So not cool, show.)

Current refreshment: Hot tea.

Current worry: I really hope I'm going to manage to stay awake long enough today to switch myself over from night shift onto day shift. Too often when I try to make the transition by just staying up like this, I'm pretty much down for the count by noon. But I've had to cover a bunch of extra hours this week, which means doing it gradually was out.

Current thought: I am not sleepy. I cannot possibly be sleepy yet!
