Blah, Blah, Blah  
[Good lord, this new entry page really sucks.]

Got a party tomorrow night at my place. If you're reading this, you can probably invite yourself (just let me know and I'll tell you the details). Of course, most of the locals reading this already know about it, as do a couple non-locals. It's a Festivus party. There will -- probably -- be no pole. Or Airing of Grievances. Or Feats of Strength. So, hmmm... Maybe not that much of a Festivus party. But that's okay, I'm making pumpkin cheesecake right now.

I suppose the party couldn't come at a better time, because I find myself to be in a lousy, lousy mood. Not "bad mood" (grumpy? Kill all the politicians?) lousy, but "blah" (unmotivated? Dreary? Brain the size of a planet?) lousy. I hear that this is sometimes called "depression." Actually, perhaps an apt word would be "lonely." I suppose I more or less know why, but that doesn't change things much. Although I am moderately tempted to whine in my journal and such. Whine, whine, whine. I don't have much patience for the "drama" side of LiveJournal, though, so probably won't. Much.

Hasn't really had an effect on work -- still got in a full day today, although at this exact moment I've broken out the sangiovese and am probably down for the count for the rest of the night (hopefully this won't result in an "interesting" pumpkin cheesecake when I get to mixing the second one here). It has had an effect on studying -- I haven't recovered from the hit that that took during the crud. And I'm really frustrated with it, too, and although it's hard to say how much of that is internal and how much is external, I'm nevertheless a bit disappointed with my progress. Perhaps a trip up to the mountains to go snowshoeing will help -- the weather seems to be taunting me, though, because now that I've finally (more or less -- 99%) recovered from the cold, it looks like there might be some weather by Saturday. On Saturday. And I don't really want to be wandering in the mountains in bad weather. Hrm.

I should get my Lego Star Destroyer on Monday, though. Apparently it's in Illinois right now.

Wish I could be there
but I've got so much work right now that it is stupid. I planned a day of vacation when Margene is having her surgery because it looked like a small space in my calendar, but idiots being late may take that away too.

I'm being pretty whiny.

This weekend I may make Schaudenfreud pie for the Kacsffs meeting. Or I may make the pumpkin thingie I downloaded a couple weeks ago.

Of course I'm so totally not in the holiday mood that if Sean had not induced Curtis to help put up the Christmas tree, we wouldn't have had it up. It's got minimalist decor now, a couple of things I bought from Avon (Mrs. Claus' and Santa's laundry line...) but we'll fix that this weekend.

Re: Wish I could be there
Yeah, I heard about the tree thing.

I'm not really in any particular holiday mood, but then, I never really am. The holidays haven't really meant anything to me for decades. After I went to college, I never really went back to visit family for the holidays or anything, I always preferred to do my travelling when things weren't so crazy.

PARTAY! Dude, where do you live? I am the world's biggest hermit and there's an 89% chance I will be too lazy to come, but if I am feeling particularly not-lazy tomorrow, I would love to stop by your partay. Laurel says you are a good cook and have a wonderful kitty... very tempting. :p
Douglas Triggs: totallydoubt72 on December 15th, 2006 06:53 am (UTC)

Dunno how Laurel would know I'm a good cook -- I don't think she's ever eaten my food. Nor, actually, has she ever actually met the cat. :)

Anyway, drop me an email (the one on my profile should be fine) and I'll forward you directions.

Hee hee.

I have a distinct memory of someone telling me you were a good cook! Though I can't remember who told me... it might have been you. ;)

And hey, I've seen kitty pictures!

You should skip snowshowing and help me carry heavy items. :P

The weather might agree with you.

I guess we'll see.

You must be a good cook; you describe yummy things to eat. Dragonet is a good cook too, I'm sure--I tried one of her recipes once :-)

I had a coworker once whose idea of fun was to go up a mountain on snowshoes in the moonlight. Sounded cool but a tad scary. (But then again, we're talking Massachusetts mountains, not Colorado mountains. I think Colorado mountains die laughing when they hear about what passes for a mountain in Massachusetts.)

Hope the blues go soon...

Oh... You call those mountains? :-P
