Azzcalm, Quiet

Ow, my hair.

Trying to brush my hair this morning. It's all stretchy and pully where it's tangled. That means it's still a little wet from last night.

I'm tired. Not been getting enough sleep. Went to bed around 4 last night. Have been slowly reading Gust Front on Inanna. I enjoy that ability to do that on her.

In keeping with the rest of the grouchy theme for the morning, the jeans I tried to put on were too tight, as opposed to barely fitting. *sigh* I have been watching what I eat a little more closely of late, and I'm sure that had I tried those particular jeans a week ago, they would have been way too tight, rather than just a lost battle with the zipper.

Got an hour less sleep this morning than I might have thanks to the tossing and turning and trying not to cry thing. This has been an ongoing theme since approximately the end of October.

Those of you who have me as primary filler of the friends page and/or those who actually read me will have likely noted that my posting's been down by about 50% over the past little bit. Maybe more than 50% down, as quite a few of my posts the other day were private, mostly logs of chats. This doesn't say good things about my mental state, especially as no few of the public posts are links, with the random survey here and there. Fluff.

I'm just so tired...

Well, duh.

When I'm working on three hours of sleep, from a day that was already sleep-depped, of course I'm going to sound horrible.

It really does depend on sleep.

My schedule's just wacked. Way wacked.

And nobody orders me to bed these days. Nor does anyone reasonably local have the right to.

Quiz, Friday Five

Friday Five

1. As a child, who was your favorite superhero/heroine? Why?
Actually, I don't think I had one. I was not exposed to television or comics. Instead, I somewhat idolized Richard Feynman.

2. What was one thing you always wanted as a child but never got?
Friends who lived close enough to go over to their house and play every day, or have them come over to see us every day.

3. What's the furthest from home you've been?
A few thousand miles on the East Coast away from Fairbanks, Alaska.


4. What's one thing you've always wanted to learn but haven't yet?
Chinese. I am the vague master of two forms of hello (casual and formal), goodbye, thank-you, chopsticks, dumplings, small chick, rooster, This can't fucking happen!!!, ice-cream, my family name, chicken shit, and can vaguely recognize some other words when they are said around me.

5. What are your plans for the weekend?
Sleep, sleep, more sleep, some html, maybe finishing up Gust Front, probably working out a little, definitely laundry, some housework... that sort of thing.

Little Fayoumis, Nephew

...actually...

Instead of asking why we've got the tattoos and so forth, more likely the kids are going to be asking why their friends' moms don't have cool tattoos and let their friends wear spiked bracelets...

The Little Fayoumis has a bracelet with rubber spikies because he keeps spearing people with the metal ones when he borrows them... he'll learn.

For a while, we were waiting for the call from school asking exactly what relation "skyclad" had to the fact that our little angel had convinced the rest of the kids to pull off their clothes and sit around in a circle on the playground... Fortunately, he hasn't done this... yet.

[Edit: This was supposed to go to shadesong's new community, hip_mama... ah well, I can crosspost.]

Fun & visits and stuff

ralmathon came over. Nephew may or may not have whammied him into doing so. ralmathon doesn't think so, but we never can tell with that kid...

Explained the karmic feedback on whammies. Hope I got through.

It's nice to have my big bro around. He graduates the 28th of February. Go, bro, go!! It's always nice to talk with him. Hope he sticks around...
