    Time Event
    If It's Not One Thing....'s another.

    I've finally finished that gaming paperwork - thanks to a Certain Siamese who wouldn't let me sleep past 7:30AM - and now I'm going to tackle the kitchen.

    It's going to be ugly. Wish me luck.

    One day, I'm going to have the entire house cleaned up, all at once. Just about the same time the sun turns black, I'm sure...

    Current Mood: drained
    I Couldn't Resist...'s another one. Thanks to J1. I had to cut the graphics and the table, the formatting was too funky.

    Miracles do happen.

    You probably have a knack for history and literature, and approach both topics with a sense of wonder and curiosity. You're an entertaining repository of cool stories, but you should be careful lest you wind up being out of touch with reality.

    Christ. I decide to get off my ass and clean the kitchen, and my waste disposal is broken.

    Are the fates trying to make a lazy slob out me? Because I don't need the help!

    So, I managed to accomplish one thing - getting the kitchen clean, despite the non-functioning waste disposal - only to be seized with another fit of self-loathing. Why can't I find a job? Why can't I focus on my writing gigs? Why can't I find some sort of better career option than being an (unemployed) administrative assistant.

    It's moments like this I want to sulk and scarf ice-cream by the pint. But I'll only make things worse by being fat and unemployed. Well, fatter. My progress on my diet is about the only thing holding my self esteem together right now.

    This attitude stinks. I'm going to go do...something

    Current Mood: bitchy

    The boys are talking game plot, and I'm having one of my ADD moments, which means I can't stay still, and I certainly can't pay attention to what they're saying.

    I sometimes think about getting tested for adult-ADD, but I think I'm just overreacting. And not having medical insurance means I can't do squat right now, anyways...

    I've just realized that I don't have a recent image of myself that I'm willing to share online as a likeness. Every picture I've got online is from Y2K or before. Is this because I'm too vain to allow myself to have been photographed during my recent blimping? Or am I just too used to being behind-the-camera to remember to get in front of it at times? Well, L1 has offered to do another photo-shoot on Mt. Diablo this summer, if I'm feeling skinny enough. That might be enjoyable, but I'm not going to wear a corset in a bramble thicket in 95 degree weather again! And, this time, his bloody camera had better work!

    How in hell did this happen? I much preferred the #2 answer - Rocky Horror Picture Show. Labyrinth is alright and all, but it's so insipid at times... Although - no offense, husband o'mine - I wouldn't mind having the Goblin King hanging around at times...

    You're a dreamer at heart and have a great looking Goblin King. You are everybody's favorite, but most won't accept you.

    What movie are you?

    Current Mood: hyper
    Current Music: Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

    Because, y'know, I can...

    I'm reading:
    Stiffed - Susan Faludi (surprisingly sympathetic examination of the collapse of American notions of masculinity, post WWII)
    The Master of Disguise - Tony Mendez (slightly overblown CIA autobiography)
    DSM III - by a whole bunch of shrinks. Well, I'm more browsing through that one, for RPG usage.
    The Screwtape Letters - Lewis Carrol (because I'm sick of encountering references to it, and not getting them)
    A History of The English Speaking Peoples - Winston Churchill (a gleefully non-neutral view of British history)

    I've just finished:
    Backlash - Susan Faludi (sensing a theme, there?)
    Sorceress of Darshiva and Seeress of Kell - David Eddings (old favorites)
    Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire - Amanda Foreman (historical biography)
    Shopaholic Takes Manhattan - Sophie Kinsella (fluffy chick novel)

    I want to read:
    Fast Food Nation - and find out what the buzz is about
    Oleander - ditto
    Tourjours Provence - I love 'armchair travel'
    The Black Album - this Kureishi novel has been getting dusty on my 'to be read' pile.
    The Fellowship Of The Ring - contrary to my SF roots, I was never able to get into this book. Maybe I should give it another chance.
