Slightly Whiny Currentlies

Current clothes: A towel. I got out some clothes -- denim shorts and a t-shirt with instructions for things you can invent if you happen to travel back in time while wearing it -- but I have not yet bothered putting them on.

Current mood: Eh. Kind of tired and unambitious. A Certain Cat is getting far too good at waking me up in the morning, and this does not contribute to my happiness and well-being.

Current music: More random shuffle stuff. The iPod seems to have been offering up a fairly high percentage of goofy comedy songs lately, which is fine by me. I can use the laughs.

Current annoyance: Graah, where do I start? Well, my swamp cooler definitely seems to be having problems. I suspect that running it is actually making the air in the house hotter now. For reasons I am unclear on, I put off doing anything about it for ages, and when I finally got around to calling someone to come and take a look at it, I discovered that they were closed until sometime next week. Also, my allergies are acting up again. And my internal clock is even more fubared than usual; I spent much of Monday irrationally convinced that it was the middle of the night when it was actually late afternoon. And I'm bummed about not getting the vacation time I wanted next month. Also, I am currently in one of those periods where humanity in general irritates me.

Current thing: Sneezing.

Current desktop picture: A partial lunar eclipse.

Current book: The Age of American Unreason by Susan Jacoby.

Current song in head: As predicted, it's the theme song to The Greatest American Hero.

Current DVD in player: Disc 10 of The Avengers Complete Emma Peel Megaset. I got this on sale for something like $35, and for sheer entertainment-per-dollar value, I think it may be one of the best bargains I've even gotten. There's enough Avengers here for me to happily dip in and out for years.

Current refreshment: Nothing. My mouth still tastes like toothpaste.

Current worry: Eh. Too apathetic to worry.

Current thought: Right. Out from in front of the computer and on with the day. Annnnny minute now. Really.
