random stuff

~ I watched a man, casually dressed in shorts and flip-flops, unload a photo scanner box from his car this morning on the studio lot - and walk with it and his laptop bag towards his bungalow office. I immediately and inexplicably thought to myself, I am not satisfied with what it is that I do - I am dissatisfied with my work.

~ I'm expecting my iPod photo to come via DHL quite soon. Thank you, freephotoipods.com (and, of course, to everyone who placed an order)!! Alas, I have not yet figured out how I will set it up in my MINI. I want to be able to see the screen and album art (or at least have it in my periphery), but the idea of being able to control it from my multifunction steering wheel is also very tempting. *Sigh*

~ I'm slumping in my chair, and I believe it's the chair to blame. Today I paid attention to my seating habits, and found that when I sit in the chair, my butt starts to drift forward - like the cloth of the seat is not supplying ample friction to hold me in place or something. My rear-end is now almost completely off the chair. And I wonder why I have back problems!

~ London is only 47 days away. London is only 47 days away. London is only 47 days away.

~ I was out sick the first two days of this week. My catch-up work seems an insurmountable effort. Hence, I am being a bit lackadaisical about the task. Yes, I feel guilty about this. No, I won't think about it at all once I leave the building this evening.

~ I'm having issues at home. Nothing specific, but right now I'm not happy there. Being there causes me some stress - slight, but I can feel it when I walk through the front door. The night before last I got a little upset about it. I sense that I'm not welcome, for some reason - certain latent personality issues are slowly creeping up, maybe. But being there is, ultimately, good for me. And I haven't really a choice in the matter, anyways, as affording an apartment of my own right now is cost-(and savings-) prohibitive. It's just a phase, and it was bound to happen sooner or later. I just need to get through it.
