Currently, It's April! How Did That Happen?

Current clothes: Blue-and-white t-shirt in, I don't know, some kind of vaguely tie-dye-ish pattern. Tan jeans. White socks. Black sneakers.

Current mood: Not too bad. As of tonight, I'm off day shifts again for a while, so that's nice.

Current music: Not much of anything lately, to be honest. Random shuffle stuff that I don't remember.

Current annoyance: Allergy season. The fact that I've gained enough weight back that even my fat jeans are starting to feel snug. My neighbors' garbage-strewn lawn. (And I don't mean junk. I mean, literally, garbage. It's disgusting.) Various foods not entirely agreeing with me. Living in a country with a Congress that can't or won't accomplish anything except making sure they get themselves paid. Windy weather. Shift work. I could go on.

Current thing: I'm not sure I have a current thing. Possibly I have a bunch of little things.

Current desktop picture: Still the same stars and nebula as last month.

Current book: Dreamsnake by Vonda McIntyre.

Current song in head: Brain Radio has been very suggestible lately. Right this minute, it seems to be playing "Dog Years" by Rush. I think something reminded me of something that reminded me of one of the lyrics.

Current DVD in player: Nothing at the moment, but most recently watched was disc 2 of season 1 of Merlin. Which is total brain candy, but it's pleasant, digestible brain candy. Even if I normally dislike the tendency to teenage-ify everything.

Current refreshment: Mint tea. Mmm.

Current worry: Not worried about too much in my own life for once, but I do know people who are going through some tough times, so I guess I'll worry for them instead.

Current thought: My mind just went completely and utterly blank.


  1. I watched one episode of Merlin when I was in London a few years back and wasn't too impressed. Despite wanting to be, thanks largely to the presence of actors like Anthony Head and, in this episode, Alexander Siddig. It just felt like too teenage-ified candy to me.

  2. Well, it is teenage-ified candy. It totally is, despite Anthony Head bringing in a bit of gravitas with what's actually a very good performance. That aside, "impressed" is not remotely the word I would use for my reaction to it. But somehow I find it extremely watchable, in a thoroughly undemanding kind of way. It was particularly earlier in the week when I was seriously sleep-deprived and needed something easy on the brain.
