Medium-sized Update

Just got off the phone with queueball (again), discussing various things I won't talk about here. The more I talk to him, the more I'm glad I randomly decided he should be a primary. Besides which, it just goes to reinforce the notion that 99% of the second-guessing I do is redundant and pointless.


Interesting revelation occurred to me a while back... I spend the majority of my time in indecisive mode. I go back and forth trying to decide between doing this or that, and as a result end up wasting most of my time on AIM and IRC. The past couple of days I've gotten better... I've been just doing whatever occurs to me without really thinking about it. Sometimes it's homework, sometimes it's cleaning the dishes, sometimes it's (finally) rearranging furniture to make room for that futon I'm supposed to be getting over Thanksgiving.

I've also given up any pretense of having a normal sleep schedule. I was feeling sleepy earlier today, so I took a two-hour nap, and now I'm up at almost 3 AM, and planning on getting up tomorrow morning at 7, or maybe 9 if I don't feel like getting out of bed. I think this will work out better for me, but we'll see.

I'm being a lot more impulsive now, but also a lot more decisive. I hate scheduling and I hate having to conform to anyone's schedule but my own. Of course, I have a TODO list (maintained on a whiteboard), and I work on things on that list, but I have no timeslices as to when I'm working on anything in particular.


I think I own a cat now... I need to talk to the owner and the landlady tomorrow to see what's going on here. She came bounding over when I got home, I didn't let her in, then she came back this evening and started slamming herself up against the door (trying to reach the doorknob) until I finally let her in. Then I kicked her out at about 9ish, and she sat outside yowling for a half hour till I let her back in, and I finally got her out again an hour or two ago by giving her a box and blanket to sleep in right next to my door (note: it's 40ish degrees outside right now). She wanted to stay inside, but I can't let her because of the kittypee problem... there's no place in here for her to go to the bathroom, and cat pee destroys carpets (and pisses off landladies).

I haven't fed her once, she has a home with food, yet she still wants to spend all her time with me... go figure...

    (01:24:17) CondorDes: See, this is why I need an SO. Then I won't spend so much time worrying about a cat that already has a home cause I'll be too busy smothering my mate.
    (01:25:14) queueball: That's a good theory.
    (01:25:18) queueball: Mates are lots of work, though. Oy.
    (01:25:24) CondorDes: Yeah.
    (01:25:36) CondorDes: Well, so are cats... this one, anyway.
    (01:26:02) CondorDes: The advantage is I can parallelize taking care of the cat with getting work done... sometimes. ;)
    (01:29:32) queueball: You'd be surprised how much work you can get done while petting/cuddling a boy if you put your mind to it : )

s/boy/human/ and I'll have to give this some thought...

In any case, sleepytime. *hugs* to you all.

    Well, I'm off to Dreamwidth. I hope to see you all there! Nice knowing you, LJ. It's been grand. — Des

  • A fresh start?

    So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking…

    It’s that time of the year again -- another year has passed, and as usual, I don’t finish reflecting on it until the first 3 months of the following…
