Where The Heck Has The Beginning Of August Gone?

Oh, well, time for this again.

Current clothes: Brown shorts. Black t-shirt with a picture of an angry sun and the words "The Sun Is Trying To Kill Me." Because it is; I think the UV index was 10+ today. Also, white socks.

Current mood: Man, I have generally not been in a good mood for the last couple of weeks. Tired, irritable, prone to random bouts of anxiety and existential angst... Bah. But today I ditched work early, got some desperately needed housework done and have just now finished engaging in a vigorous session of sitting in front of the TV eating ice cream. I feel much much better.

Current music: Nothing. I think the last thing I played might have been Alpocalypse, which I got for my birthday and am not tired of yet. That was a while ago, though.

Current annoyance: What you want me to pick one? Well, maybe it's the constant feeling that I don't have enough time to do everything I want to do. Mind you, what I want to do does include a lot of lazing around. Which eats up a surprising amount of time.

Current thing: I don't know. Um... I thought I was maybe going to manage not to buy any more books in August, but then I sort of... did. But I mail-ordered them, at least, so maybe I'll get some more finished before they get here. Maybe?

Current desktop picture: This lunar eclipse photo.

Current book: Buzz Aldrin, What Happened to You in All the Confusion? by Johan Harstad. It's a Norwegian novel that has apparently only just been translated into English. I got a free copy through LibraryThing. Unfortunately, so far it's been fifty-four pages of some guy trying hard to convince me that he's an extremely boring person, and succeeding very, very well.

Current song in head: The theme song to The Big Bang Theory. See "current DVD" below.

Current DVD in player: Disc 3 of season 2 of The Big Bang Theory. And this season has been so freaking hilarious that it's made me almost completely forget whatever objections I had to it in the beginning. Except when it forcibly reminds me of them, but so far it hasn't done so very often.

Current refreshment: Tea!

Current worry: Oh, god, I'm going to Hawaii in a little more than a month. I'm totally not ready to go to Hawaii. I have done nothing whatsoever to prepare. How the hell did it get to be August already, anyway?

Current thought: Thanks for asking me about my annoyances and worries, meme. Now I need more ice cream.


  1. You're going to Hawaii? Did I miss you mentioning that?

  2. I mentioned it... I don't know. Quite a while ago. And then plane tickets were bought or something, and I kept thinking of it as something that was happening much, much later, and, um... Yeah. I'm going to Hawaii next month. With relatives. :)

  3. Oh, so it won't all be fun, then. ;) Be sure you bring along the boring book!

  4. I really hope I'll have finished the boring book by then. Although at this rate... :)

  5. Well, have fun in Hawaii then! :)

  6. Ahola! Thats for your return trip

  7. I think that works coming and going, actually. :)

  8. Did you see the spelling?

  9. Are you still alive out there in cyberworld?

  10. I am! But things have been very boring. :)

  11. In that case, you could always do a post about your cats.

  12. How about cat zombies, to kill two birds with one stone?

    (Wow! The word verification thingy came up with "logic".)

  13. LOL!

    I think there was a zombie cat on Buffy once.
