I didn't get a lot of sleep on Sunday night for some reason, and I've been trying to catch up through the week but it's not been happening. So during the day I start to fade away come around noon or so, right after the lunch break, and therefore the last few hours of work have been dragging horribly. Plus, my eyes really hurt. I think it's a combination of allergies and strain. I was looking at a picture of me and realized I've been wearing the same glasses for over two years (my eyes change a lot, and usually pretty fast), and wonder if I need to have them checked again.
I spent a good part of the weekend watching Season 5 of Buffy. I'd known for a while that I was wanting to see it again, and it's been just long enough that, well, wow, it's good! Much better than I remembered, and the story doesn't drag at all. As a matter of fact, it moves along pretty snappily, and is thrown out of whack only by Joyce's death. I guess there was something about those long breaks between episodes while it was being broadcast. Also -- Glory, don't hate her. Hmmm. I wonder if an equal amount of time will make me hate Season 7 less.
How, how, how, OH GOD, HOW could anyone have watched Season 5 and not seen how hard Spike was trying to be good??? Especially in Spiral? I just don't understand...
I am working extra hard to have a workable first draft of my vampire book that I like before September 12. Why that date? That's when the book is set, in 2003, and I'd love to have it finished within that year. Then I'll try and inflict it on anyone who wants to read it... :)
