mellicious: pink manicure (baseball - Kissimmee)
I was dreaming, just before I woke up, about being at a conference - actually most of it was at somebody's house, but it was supposed to be a conference, you know how dreams are - and being left out of everything. (Or maybe just feeling left out of everything.) That's one of my very deep insecurities, and it keeps on rearing its ugly head from time to time. There was this very odd mix of work people and online people in the dream. It was weird - but then it was a dream, so I don't know why I should be surprised about that.

Anybody else notice that the two big news items of the day yesterday were that (1) Anna Nicole Smith did drugs (and died from them) and (2) Pat Tillman was killed by his own men? Neither of which is exactly a big shock. Now I have to admit that the complexity of Anna Nicole's drug cocktail fascinated me a bit - nine different prescription drugs? Man oh man. I think that's a person with some serious enablers around her.

My personal drug cocktail was apparently not quite up to par yesterday - or maybe it was just forgetting to take my drugs on time, or maybe it was just that I was tired - but when I left work yesterday, that walk to the car was a very painful thing. Very painful. I was shuffling along like a little old lady by the time I got out to the street. But I went home and got in bed and rested for a while and felt better.

Rob watched Flyboys last night - luckily, since I didn't really want to get interested in it, it turned out not to be a very good movie. One big bundle of cliches, was what it was. I was only half paying attention and I was still telling Rob what was going to happen before it happened. (Last week's Monday rental, Invincible, was much better. I liked that one quite a lot. I am not usually a huge fan of football movies, but I still liked it. It was sort of a football version of The Rookie - made by the same people, actually, I think.)

I slept like crap last night, so now of course I feel like crap. I dragged myself out of bed and into some clothes and all the way to work, but oh my god I want to go home again and sleep. It was one of those nights when I just kept waking up constantly. Oh, and toward morning I started dreaming about ghosts. It started out as one of those creepy dreams where you're in a house and you just know some boogey-man is going to jump out at you any minute - I assume I'm not the only person who has those - but then it switched to sort of a Ghost Whisperer thing where the ghosts were telling me stuff, and I was the only one who could see them. (Damn Rob for getting me interested in that stupid show!) And I'd wake up - even after the alarm started going off - and go back to sleep and go right back into the dream. I hate that.

I was playing Dofus right before bed (warning: the intro to that website is way too cutesy and plays goofy sounds and music at you) so I'm tempted to blame my sleeplessness on that, except that that's what I do practically every night before bed lately. However, I had been battling sewer rats for about an hour before bed with a couple of kids from Mexico and I dunno, maybe that was just too exciting. (Actually, I don't even know they were kids - I just assume they are because everybody who plays this game except me and [ profile] columbina seems to be. Also because they talked in that text-message shorthand like most everybody under 25 tends to.)

We went to see Capote yesterday and it was absolutely fabulous. Seriously. It was good. I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't that. It was another one of those movies (see: Walk the Line) that I'd heard was good and was interested in seeing but basically knew nothing about. Go see it. Thumbs way up, four stars, all that stuff.

I have no comment on the Superbowl to speak of. I only saw the 2nd half anyway, because we went to the grocery store after the movie - great time to go to shopping, incidentally - and didn't get home until halftime. I just wasn't very invested in either team, although it appeared to be a reasonably closely-matched game. And the commercials were pretty boring, on the whole.

(I made a Dofus icon for your entertainment. That little guy is called a tofu. They are very annoying if you are fighting against them, because they run up to you and attack you and run out of range again before you can attack them back. However, one of my characters can summon them, and when they are fighting on your side they are quite handy.)

(NOTE: many years later - I lost the Dofus icon somewhere along the line, which makes me sad. So instead I'm substituting the WoW chicken icon.)
