Friday Night

I don't know why I'm still awake and playing on the computer. It's been a long day. It felt longer than usual. Fridays, for the most part, fly for me. At work, a lot of people are either off on Fridays or have a half day on Fridays and the office gets quiet around lunchtime. When it's quiet, it's easy to hunker down and get as much done with limited interruption. For some reason, though, today dragged. And dragged. And dragged. By lunch, I was ready to fall asleep. Not good. Not good at all. That just made the afternoon drag even slower. I suppose I was due, though. This whole week flew by in the blink of an eye.

Although he's been quiet lately, the Conspiracy Theorist that I sit next to was actually on fire today. It's like he saved up all of his insane ramblings and they just erupted today. Since it's been a while, I purposefully listened in on his rants for just a little bit until I couldn't tak any more of it. One of his rants had to do with the goings on in Austin, TX. Naturally I emailed the only man I've ever truly loved to fill him in. In return, I got the true story upon which the rantings were based. It is good to know that some of his theories are based in reality. Now, is anyone out there from Oklahoma City because I got an earful about the goings on there, too.

I'm not one to listen to movie (or television) scores, but tonight I've been listening to the score from the show TORCHWOOD and I'm really, really getting into it. I don't know if it's just my mood or what, but I'm finding it really relaxing and enjoyable. I think it's better than the current DOCTOR WHO score (Series 4).

I'm so happy it's the weekend. I have no real plans and that makes me happy. I'm sure we'll probably go out to lunch tomorrow to make up for us not going out to dinner tonight. Ken called a little after lunch to tell me he wasn't feeling good at all. Sounds like he got what I had two Fridays ago when I went home early from work. A stomach thing has been going around. He came home, crashed on the couch for a couple of hours and now is feeling better. It's rare that we miss a Friday night out to dinner, though I wasn't bothered by it at all this week. I wasn't really all that hungry when work was done today, so it's probably for the best.

If I can find the energy to move comic boxes tomorrow, I'm going to dig out my run of Secret Society of Super-Villains and re-read it. Sean has inspired me. I kind of wish this was available in trade paperback format, though, because that would be easier to dig out.

When the two of you get your comics organized, both of you can hop a plane to here and help Jed with his (and then I can meet Sean too!).
