Almost there...

Thursday, April 15, 2004

I'm feeling a weird state of total motivationlessness. At work, I'm not getting much done, partly due to others, but also largely due to my lack of focus. After work, I should be working on promoting the Tuesday ceili (which is still the coolest thing I've ever done), but the thought of dragging myself out to Scruffys last night or the King's Head tonight was too much to bear. I'm taking a Lindy class Thursday nights, and while I'm there, I'm loving it. Richard is an absolutely amazing teacher. I'm finally starting to feel like I have enough basic competence in Lindy to consider going swing dancing in public. The odd thing is that about 4:00 today I was ready to go home and take a shower and get ready for bed. Had to talk myself into another 2+ hours of work and then staying another whole hour for the class.

It's weird, because my whole life is sort of structured around the assumption that I will have limitless energy and will always want to go and do more. My spirit seems to be rebelling against that at the moment and all I want to do is sit at home in front of the Tivo or read a stack of books. Very odd.

Eh, not going to worry about it. It'll go away. In the meantime, the St. Stephen's Ceili business cards arrived from Vista Print today. If those had arrived yesterday, I definitely would've gone to the set dancing last night. Instead it was all about me and a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup curled up with Gilmore Girls, Angel, and Mythbusters. It was a damned fine evening.

It's going to be a busy weekend. Tomorrow we're going to see Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind at Miramonte high school (where Elizabeth used to teach drama). Saturday we're cooking an Indian feast and watching The Guru at Emily's place. Sunday I'm starting to shop for a new cellular provider. My stupid T-Mobile service always drops my calls, and after just one year, my stupid T-Mobile/Motorola phone won't hold a charge for more than half a day. Grr. I may go back to a Sprint/Samsung combo unless other folks have good recommendations.

It's funny. Spring is supposed to be a time of rebirth and rejuvenation, but so many folks I know are depressed right now (Karen, Rick, Rachel, etc.). Maybe it's just rubbing off on me.

Time to dance!
