The Current Currently

Current clothes: Dark gray t-shirt with a picture of a Dalek on it. Long-sleeved shirt over that, unbuttoned. Um, I think it's sort of off-white. Blue jeans. Black belt. White socks. Black sneakers.

Current mood: Not too bad. Much more awake than I felt an hour ago, which is good. Especially as this is the point where I need to switch from going to bed disgustingly early to trying to stay up as late as possible.

Current music: Haven't really been listening to much of anything recently. Probably some more random-shuffle stuff a few days ago.

Current annoyance: Well, my sinuses are definitely aware that it's spring. Although I shouldn't complain too hard. So far, the allergies aren't all that bad this year. Of course, not everything's started blooming yet.

Current thing: I'm not sure I have one. Reading, maybe. A bit more intensely than usual, I mean. I feel ridiculously pleased by the fact that the infamous To-Read Pile is now down below 450 books -- enough below that it seems likely that I'm not going to creep back up above it again. Maybe when I get down to 400 I'll throw a party.

Current desktop picture: Well, it was this image of the Milky Way over Mauna Kea, but when I went to the Astronomy Picture of the Day site to find a link to it, I loved today's nebula picture so much that I immediately changed to that one.

Current book: Just started Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. Which I've been meaning to get around to reading for approximately forever.

Current song in head: "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair" by They Might Be Giants.

Current DVD in player: The last disc of season 10 of Stargate SG-1. I've got one more episode to go, and then I can say I've seen the entire series (minus the TV movies, which I'm planning to get to soonish). I should probably watch that tonight, but I'm almost a little reluctant for it to be over. It's been fun!

Current refreshment: Peppermint/spearmint tea.

Current worry: I don't want to worry about stuff right now!

Current thought: The thing that bothers me is someone keeps moving myyyyyyyyy chaiiiiiiiiiir.


  1. Be interested to see what you think of Perdido when you're done. I've been waiting for Mieville to write a fourth book in that universe.

  2. Also what you thought of Stargate's 200th episode, and the Farscape parody therein.

  3. I've only read one chapter of Perdido, so I have no opinion yet, but, OK, I'll try and remember to offer one when I'm done.

    "200" was actually one of the few Stargate episodes I'd seen before I started watching on DVD, just for the Farscape parody. I thought it was absolutely hysterical, and that the rest of the episode was a lot of fun, too. I think I enjoyed it even more the second time, in context.

  4. Well, that's a better song stuck in my head now than there was...
