sim

He's half kid, half pet!

I wish I was independantly wealthy. For many reasons, one of which involves traveling (and visiting people) instead of working. Another reason is that I could then perhaps justify commiting what is bound to be more money than I currently have to have my name on a tombstone in a Neil Gaiman book or said by Sunny Baudelaire. (Ooh, Erica, you could also be fictionally killed by Stephen King!) I mean, c'mon! How cool would that be?

(The answer, for those who are wondering, is "very very cool".)

I did manage to get my chores done yesterday evening, hurrah! I also made a huge batch of noodles with peanut sauce, which should feed me for several days. And I'm revisiting The Sims 2, which is- unsurprisingly- a huge time sucker. Jo Aotearoa and Wrigley McName are in looooooove, but I'm starting to wonder why I got Jo into the science career track. I think she's bored with "studying cleaning". At least, I'm bored with watching it.

Man, if I could load that game onto this computer, work would rock.

I am currenly both sleepy and restless. In a situation like this, the best thing for me to do would probably be to . . . I dunno, take a nap in the grass under a tree. Or have a leisurely stroll beside a river. The worst thing for a person in this state of mind may well be to sit still and do busywork at a computer. Guess which of these options is the one that I must take today.

It's feeling like an incredibly long week. I'm ready for tomorrow evening. No specific plans yet for Friday night, but it marks the beginning of the weekend, and that is extremely welcome.

I'm going to have to take some time off soon.
