How Is It That We're This Far Into April Already?

Well, since it's past the usual time for this:

Current clothes: Dark gray sweatpants. A blue t-shirt with a picture of a caffeine molecule on it. (Mmm, coffee!) White socks. Brown leather boots.

Current mood: Not too bad. This is a weekend for me, so I'm in a very weekend-y sort of mood. Kind of relaxed, that is, but with a little voice in the back of my head telling me I should really get some more stuff done before I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Current music: Imagine Dragons' Night Visions.

Current annoyance: Lately we've been having extremely high winds or rain on all those days, and only on those days when I am a) off work and ready to do household chores, and b) desperately low on clean laundry. The vast majority of the time, one can do perfectly well without a clothes dryer in New Mexico, as a clothesline in the backyard handily provides a cheaper, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly alternative. But then there are days like today...

Current thing: I've been playing a lot of Kingdom Rush. I even paid for the premium levels; it's a pretty good entertainment value for six bucks. Then again, I think I often get more hours-of-entertainment-per-dollar out of video games, just because I'm so bad at them that it takes me ages to finish.

Current desktop picture: Oh, gawd, it's still Rumplestiltskin. This is getting downright embarrassing.

Current book: I've just finished Uranium: War, Energy, and the Rock that Shaped the World by Tom Zoellner. It's, um, about uranium.

Current song in head: "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons. Given the combination of current music and current book, this was pretty much inevitable.

Current refreshment: Green tea chai.

Current DVD in player: Most recently, Robot & Frank. Which was cute, although I kind of get the impression they didn't quite know how to end it.

Current worry: Well, there's always the worry that my house is going to fall down.

Current thought: I really do have some more crap I ought to get done today. But maybe I should have some lunch first.
