Why so slow?

I'm back again, with nothing to say....

The heat is already ungodly over here...I predict sleepless nights ahead...Ever since I had an attic bedroom without air conditioning, spring/summer heat has tormented me...I feel almost feverish...

Ho hum, what else?  I forgot to pay tribute to Erik Bruhn, who died on April 1st, 24 years ago...Poor guy had to die on April Fools' Day...April is indeed the cruellest month...

Work started out great today, I was actually busier because my co-worker was getting some computer training...Then she came back at 1:00, and my day started to drag...I can focus so much better when she's not there, but I feel terrible saying that because she's a nice lady...But sometimes the workload is not enough for two people to share...Plus, I've always worked better by myself...I guess I'm just selfish, though...And it IS nice to have someone to cover for me when I go on vacation...There are some days, though, where I just don't feel like hearing about her boyfriend troubles...

Oh, well...

I think I'll go watch episode two of the 1991 version of "Dark Shadows"...I was obsessed with that show when I was 11 years old!  Ah, nostalgia...

How appropriate...

Just for fun, I tried one of those free tarot reading websites, and it said that "The Fool" card was my personal card, or something like that...I think that tarot stuff is nonsense, at least the online version is...I had no idea what I was doing, and all the results claimed that my life is filled with puppies and sunshine...

The guy who prepared my taxes the other night was pretty nice...He listened to me and talked to me more than my real father ever did...I think he felt sorry for me...He told me that things had to change in my life because I'm clearly in a rut, but he said he knows it's not easy, he's been there himself...He asked if I was good at writing, and he even told me to start a blog and send the address to his e-mail...But I don't think I'll ever be doing THAT...He would've been a good date for my mother, too bad he's married!

I should be in bed catching up on sleep...Instead I guess I'll catch up on the news...

It's cold again...

Nothing to say, as usual....

Why am I still awake?

I am insane and I need to go to bed...Hey, I DID sleep for four hours already...

I have to get my taxes done tonight...Joy...It's such a waste of time...

I narrowly escaped having to attend a pointless computer training course at work...I know half of the stuff already, but my co-worker wants to go...Enjoy the 12-hour course on your own, I say...And the rush-hour traffic....I do miss working on my own, so I won't mind when she's not there...She's a nice lady, but there often isn't enough work to go around, so the days just drag on forever...I never really had that problem before I was forced to work with her...But sometimes it's good to have some backup...She's too wired, though, and speeds through everything too quickly...

I'd better go...

Almost halfway through the week...

Not much going on, as usual...

My co-worker's stepfather died...His wife found him in bed, he had turned purple, but he had a smile on his face...His heart just gave out, he'd had heart surgery a few months before and was doing well...A good way for him to go, but it must've been horrifying for the family...

Damn, it's windy outside...Winter is trying to make a comeback...

It's March 24th, which means it's National Chocolate-Covered Raisins Day...Break out the Raisinets, everyone!  Honestly, it really is!

I have to file my taxes this week...I think the government should just do it for me, since they're going to take any refund from me, anyway...

I didn't finish my dinner salad...It grows soggy....

I have to be up for work in 4 hours, and I am still sitting at this computer...What is wrong with me?

I just took a bite of my salad...It's actually not too bad...

I think my writing has sunk to an all-time low...I guess it's just too late at night (or too early in the morning?) for inspiration to strike...

I will try again later...

Blue Monday

OK, it's not Monday yet, but there's only an hour and a half to go...

A recap of my day: Woke up around 9:30, ate breakfast, read, ate dinner, and now I'm online....I should just be a nun...Actually, I think nuns have more of a life than I do...And, anyway, I don't have the religious devotion....

It's so hard to get motivated in the morning after spending half the weekend doing nothing...Just thinking about all of the crap I have to do this week makes me tired...Even simple things make me tired...I was supposed to cut my hair this weekend, but I never got around to it...I need to stop being so lazy...I'm too lazy to even think right now, which is why I can't think of anything to write...

Forget it....Maybe I'll have something to say tomorrow...

I need to stop wasting electricity...

So I fell asleep  around midnight with the light on, as usual....Woke up at 3:30 A.M....It is now 5:28 A.M....I REALLY need to shut the light off and go back to bed...I'm dreading the next electric bill...I keep accidentally falling asleep with the light on, or staying up too late...I think the utility company just hiked the rates on a whim, though...I've NEVER paid as much for electricity as I did last month ($84!!!!!!!!  Well, $8 of that was for cooking gas, but still...A couple of years ago I paid between $30 and $40 per month...this economy sucks)....

I fell asleep after skimming through the coffee-table The Clash book I just bought at Borders...It was on sale for $5.99!!!!!!!  Regular price was $45!!!!!!!!  So it came to $6.69...I love bargains...I still feel guilty about buying it at all, though...I really don't have money to throw around on frivolous purchases...But it was worth it just to read Topper Headon's postcards to his parents and his DOG!!!!!!!  I love Topper, he's always been my favorite Clash member...I guess because he's the underdog...But I love 'em all....R.I.P. Joe Strummer....

I saw the movie "Our Family Wedding" today...It was OK...My mom wanted to see it....It was predictable, but sometimes it's fun to watch those romantic comedies...Also kind of depressing....

"Gee, my life's a funny thing", as David Bowie once sang...I'm going to keep this journal just to prove how boring it really is...Although boring is good, too, though, after all of the crap I've been through lately....Thanks to the economy, again...I just wish I can get to a point where my life is interesting in a good way, not a bad way...

OK, enough for now....I'll get better at this, eventually....

Random thoughts....

Why is Rosie the Riveter on the Yahoo! home page?

I now have a new friend--LiveJournal...I'm going places...

I have nothing to say right now...

At this rate, I will develop early-onset Alzheimer's...I cannot think clearly....

I love Erik Bruhn...he was a Danish ballet dancer...I love the fact that he was so beautiful and talented, and, yet, when he died, he had no memorial service, he was cremated, and his urn was placed in a grave for unknowns in Denmark...such humility....maybe also low self-esteem...and, sadly, not many people seem to remember him....

My computer is slower than molasses in January...

I'm giving up on this entry...
