Are We This Far Into June Already? Well, OK...

Current clothes: White terrycloth bathrobe. I just got out of the shower.

Current mood: Lethargic. I've only been awake for a couple of hours, and I'm still moving sloooowly. I've got to leave for work in another couple of hours, too, and I really don't want to.

Current music: Haven't been listening to much music lately. I've been trying to catch up on various podcasts, without a great deal of success.

Current annoyance: My foot still hurts. Which means I get no exercise.

Current thing: Working night shifts. Lots and lots of night shifts. Tonight's my last one for a while, though. Switching off of them is going to be weird.

Current desktop picture: This gorgeous picture of the shuttle Atlantis.

Current book: Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman.

Current song in head: "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" by R.E.M. I woke up with that in my head today, probably because I was having a dream about watching a post-apocalyptic movie. It was some 1960s thing that looked like it was going to be cheesy, but turned out to have some surprisingly sophisticated thematic/symbolic stuff going on. A bit like Planet of the Apes, I suppose. I was mildly disappointed on waking to realize that it didn't actually exist.

Current DVD in player: Disc one of season 6 of Penn & Teller's Bullshit!

Current refreshment: Nothing. I should probably have some food. After I get dressed.

Current worry: I'm trying to decide whether switching off nights by staying up all day or by trying to get to sleep earlier and waking myself up after a few hours is likely to suck less. I suppose I'm mildly concerned about deciding wrongly, but, honestly, it's not like both options aren't about equally sucky.

Current thought: I should have dried off more after my shower and before donning my bathrobe. Certain areas of me are uncomfortably damp.
