Currentlies For July

Current clothes: Blue checkered shorts. A souvenir t-shirt from the Australian outback, tan, with various relevant words and place names scrawled on it. Bare feet, because I spilled water on one of my socks earlier and had to take them off.

Current mood: Not too bad. But I've been weirdly tired and sleepy since I got back from my vacation. Actually, since a couple of days before I got back from my vacation. I'm not at all sure what that's about. It seems not to matter a whole lot how much sleep I get, which is odd. Maybe it's just that I'm not used to waking up early for weeks at a time like this.

Current music: Nothing at the moment. Last time I played anything on it, my iPod was coming up with an even weirder and more random mix of stuff than usual.

Current annoyance: Humidity. Oddly enough, it didn't really bother me on my east coast trip. I think maybe the higher oxygen content at sea level offsets the discomfort for me, or something. But when it gets humid here, it's downright stifling. Not that I'm complaining about the rain we're having lately, though; we certainly needed it.

Current thing: Nothing whatsoever. I am entirely thing-less.

Current desktop picture: Still the same Earth from space picture as last time. I seem to have gotten very lazy about changing it.

Current book: The California Roll by John Vorhaus, a fun novel about a con man.

Current song in head: "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club, which has been drifting in and out of my head at seemingly random intervals for no discernible reason for at least a year now. Although sometimes my brain tries to re-write it into a song about The Walking Dead: "Zombie, zombie, zombie, zombie, zombie apocalyyyyypse." My brain is odd.

Current refreshment: Nothing right now. I had some lemon mint tea earlier.

Current DVD in player: Disc one of season one of Millennium. I watched the first episode of this way back when it first aired and didn't feel particularly inspired to keep going with it, but I have friends who were very taken with it and still think of it fondly, so I figured I'd give it another chance. So far, it's still really not clicking with me, but I'm only three episodes in, so we'll see.

Current worry: I keep expecting my roof to start leaking again, but so far it hasn't.

Current thought: Seriously, it's 8:30 PM and I'm feeling sleepy, and that's just so wrong.


  1. I keep thinking I should maybe revisit Millennium, but I didn't much like it when it first aired, even though I stuck around longer than the first episode. Long enough to see this second-season episode, at least, which is -- maybe strangely, given the rest of the show -- really great. (You can watch it outside of the show's continuity, pretty much, so if you do quit before then, I'd recommend seeking it out nonetheless.)

    One question: does it seem dated now that it's post-2000, post-millennium?

    1. If I don't make it to the second season, I'll try to at least make a point of checking that one out. The title is pretty awesome, at least. :)

      It's not seeming super-dated to me so far, but it hasn't had a lot of opportunity yet. I'm actually a little curious to see whether it does more as it goes on.
