I'm really, really stupid - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
I'm really, really stupid
Ah, 6:22 a.m. My alarm would have gone off seven minutes ago, except that I turned it off, because I was still up anyway.

Let me clarify: I work today. I'm due in in less than three hours.

For some reason, I just couldn't leave my room messy for one more night. I'd left it alone for... longer than I care to admit... and all the sudden, bam. Gotta get the room clean or I'll go crazy. So I pulled an all nighter. Housecleaning.

Folding fitted sheets is the housework version of folding roadmaps, did you ever notice? Of course, I can fold roadmaps. Fitted sheets, on the other hand, defeat me. I may as well just give up, ball them up, and toss them in the linen closet. Two points if I hit the right shelf. :eyeroll:

Of course, I also took the time to make a post here expounding on comedy, a subject about which I know nothing, and to sit in the midst of my piles of junk fuming about mis-writing Ron. (My mother says, "Oh for heaven's sake--you should just start writing adaptations. Your way is so much better!" I tried to convince her that my philosophy on adaptations by itself would get me thrown out of Hollywood. I don't think she believed me.)

Man, I need to get some caffeine on the subject. I got my second wind around three, but I'm going to need a third one if I'm going to survive the workday.

I don't want to go to work. Rent, food, student loans, and utilities aren't that important, are they? :p

(Sigh. My colleague--only other person in the department--won't be in today, so we're already getting coverage for about five hours. I think they'd kill me if I didn't come in, even I was at death's door and it wasn't my own idiotic fault.)

Anyway, more Shifts later, if anyone's still reading (or even if you're not; I'm enjoying it). I think Dudley will make his first appearance pretty soon. The pace seems to me to be one of the naturally slow ones, for which I apologize.

I feel a bit...: grumpy grumpy
Soundtrack: A lot of really loud birds having an avian rave of some sort

Let me join you.

I have been lying in bed awake for nearly an hour and a half, which brings my total sleep time to three hours last night. It's a little after 4 here, and I don't want to hit the showers til 5, because I'll waken Hubby.

I know part of it is the claritin, which my body is trying to adjust to. Thing is, if I don't take it every twelve hours, I'll be miserable. Taking it at night means not much sleep.

Part of it is mulling over a recent turn of events in an old friendship - whether for better or worse is too early to tell.

And part of it is that I am opening a new website, probably this week. When I saw your lj entry on my friendslist, I figured it must be karma. I needed to tell you about it, to invite you over.

The purpose behind it, you probably already know. The vision that drove it was to establish a Star Wars creative arts community that provided a nurturing, positive environment for the artist and author. It consists of a workshop ONLY - not a general message board - a gallery and eFiction interactive literary archives. I am about to go work on it, as soon as I post this.

C'mon over, Fern....this is going to be a NO-DRAMA enclave. Lots of fun folks have already joined or are preparing to. Smurph is in charge of "The Big Picture," a forum dedicated to religion, government, politics and ethics in a GFFA. She has set up twelve fascinating topics and promises more. I can hardly wait to see the likes of you, Smurph, StonedRose (our resident sociologist), Ivylore, my old friend Sean, Cat, and the rest getting into deep discussions that form the bases of our plot points in later writings.

Join us, Fern. It'll give you one more reason not to sleep at night. ;)

www.A-Larger-World.com is where we are.

First: YES, definitely you've got readers for Shifts! Don't worry about that!

Second: Suggestion for the fitted sheets, if no one's suggested it to you before. *pauses to think of how to put this into writing* You start with the corners. What I always do is hang a corner inside-out on my index finger, so I find the seam, and then fold the next corner right-side out, with the seams lined up, then the third inside-out, then the forth right-side out. Then I tug at the folds so they're evened out, fold over the two sides that connect with the corners so they lay naturally from the seams, and fold from there.

Hope that's more helpful than confusing. I was about 17 before I finally understood how to fold the sheets, and that was with both my mother and grandmother demonstrating the technique in person.
