At Least There's Always The Currentlies!

Current clothes: A towel. This being one of those, "No, really, I'll get up and get dressed any minute now" kinds of mornings. Well, technically it's 1:30 in the afternoon, but I'm starting night shifts tomorrow, so it's morning for me.

Current mood: Generally not bad. Although there is a thin streak of irritation somewhere in the back of my mind due partly to not having gotten as much sleep last night as I really should have, and partly to the sulky voice in somewhere in my brain that keeps complaining that the weekend is simply not long enough to do all the nothing I want to do. But I'm hoping the former will diminish once the coffee finishes kicking in, and that the latter can be appeased by a few hours of lying around watching DVDs later in the day.

Current music: Nothing much. I think the last music I listened to was on the classic rock station while running errands yesterday, but they kept playing stuff I didn't like.

Current annoyance: Ants! Twice in the last couple of weeks, I discovered ants wandering around on my bathroom floor and crawling into my bathtub, probably looking for water. I'm not sure whether they're nesting in the wall or crawling up through a hidden crack in the floor, but either way, they really need to not do that. So yesterday I put down some ant poison. The good news is, they're all over that stuff! The bad news is... they're all over that stuff. Meaning my bathroom is currently host to some kind of mini Ant Jamboree. They really need to finish hauling it all off, eat it, die, and be gone.

Current thing: Trying to be mellower.

Current desktop picture: Some wallpaper I got from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal for contributing to a kickstarter they did to get a new book of comics published. But I'm not allowed to share it with you. Because you are less awesome than me.

Current book: Hen's Teeth and Horse's Toes by Stephen Jay Gould, one of his essay collections from the 80s.

Current song in head: Nothing at the moment, oddly enough, but for some reason the theme song to Deep Space Nine has been popping into my head at random moments over the last couple of weeks.

Current refreshment: I had some cereal and a piece of fruit a little while ago.

Current DVD in player: Just finished the first disc of season 2 of The Hour, featuring soon-to-be-Doctor Peter Capaldi.

Current worry: I really am trying to worry less about everything. I think I'm kinda-sorta succeeding.

Current thought: As is so often the case, Calvin & Hobbes said it best.


  1. You remember that Stephen Jay Gould came to give a talk in my human paleontology class at Cal State. (He was in the area to give a talk at Standford or something and my professor knew him).

    1. I had forgotten that, actually, but now that you mention it, I do remember you telling me that. Was he a good speaker?

  2. It has been said about you before, but it bears repeating: Now there's a frood who really knows where her towel is.

    1. Indeed, I am totally hoopy!

    2. I guess, then, during your trip to Hawaii, you were hula hoopy. :p
