i wish i could say i was productive today, but no. due to my own stupidity, i am right back on sleeping days, and that always slows me down some extra. i was gonna vacuum and dust, but somehow i never feel like doing that when it's dark outside. i'll probably bake bread, since i am almost out, and i actually have sourdough starter ready. or maybe i'll make some more of my recently invented "cinnamon buns" (that's what the original recipe was for, but because i am not eager for cinnamon, i use cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg instead, and because i am lazy, i don't make buns, but stack layers of dough - filling - dough into a casserole dish and bake that.). i should come up with a name for this, it's very tasty. i could make the filling part poppyseed; i think i have enough left.
mentally i remain in the BSG universe. it's safer there than in the real world. man, that's a dire pronouncement, *wry grin*. i feel incredibly down on the real world right now. so very tired of all the ... crap.
minor depressive episode? i am also sleeping more and eating less, so i should watch out for that.
i ran afoul of the rules on "television without pity". there's some pretty good BSG discussion, and now that i am caught up i thought it'd be a good place for me to get some of this BSG overload out of my system. but they apply the sort of moderation that i haven't seen in ages, complete with moderators actually editing people's posts -- rules about spelling appear to be a big deal, and being as i don't capitalize, i was warned off. reminded me of my own days as moderator, and how at times hard and fast rules seemed like they'd be a good idea. not because it actually improved the discussion, but because it made dealing with the misfits easier. i still think i rather argue nuanced rationale than make "one size fits all" rules, even though arguing with rules lawyers can get so tiring. which reminds me of news.groups -- rules lawyers galore. and man, if anything lowers the quality of conversation, it's rules lawyers. but one could handle that by making the hard rule that all discussion about rules goes into a separate section. which unfortunately isn't done so easily on usenet.
but the TWoP experience just illustrated once again how the free-for-all of usenet has spoiled me, and how much it has taught me, and how very much i prefer it now to anything else. i guess i should check out alt.battlestar-galactica. off i go...
