And The March Currentlies

Because even if I have nothing else to say for a month, at least I'll still do this.

Current clothes: A blue t-shirt that says "time traveling to the future one moment at a time," which sadly, is the only way I know how to do it. Dark gray sweatpants. White socks.

Current mood: My mood is a bit divided. Today is the first of my days off this week, and I'm really glad to actually have some days off and to not have to get up stupidly early for day shifts now. But, on the other hand, I've got this long list of things, both relaxing and productive, that I really want to make time for, and the time I need to make for it seems to be longer than the time I actually have. Which is irritating.

Current music: Ten New Songs by Leonard Cohen. I just read a book of interviews with Cohen, which gave me the irresistible desire to listen to him again.

Current annoyance: Not having infinite amounts of time with which to do whatever the hell I want. Sigh.

Current thing: Buying too many dorky t-shirts.

Current desktop picture: Still the 12th Doctor. Apparently I'm never going to change it, no matter how many times I say I'm going to.

Current book: The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill.

Current song in head: For above-mentioned reasons, there've been a medley of Leonard Cohen songs stuck in my brain for a while now. Mostly "Sisters of Mercy," Anthem" and "Democracy." Which, man, if you're going to have songs stuck in your brain, that's a damned good collection.

Current refreshment: Mint tea.

Current DVD in player: I'm slowly making my way through season 2 of Alias, which is an interesting study in contrasts for me, because I find the characters compelling, but a lot of the plot stuff painfully dumb.

Current happy thing: I have many small happy things at the moment, I guess. Dorky t-shirts. Days off, even if I can't fit quite as much goofing off into them as I'd like. Shirtsleeve weather. Leonard Cohen albums. Mint tea. How unbelievably loudly Vir was purring this morning as he cuddled me while I sipped my morning coffee and read.

Current thought: That's a rather nice list of small pleasant things, I think.
