introspection

meh

In a very blah mood. All I seem to have done this weekend is sleep, and as it was a three-day weekend (today's a bank holiday), I feel even more frustrated. Got things I want to write about, but not enough coherence to articulate them. *sigh*

Some of the problem could be that my lungs are full of crap. Went to see the Wildhearts on Friday and the venue was smoky, as rock concerts seem to be... By the standards of rock concerts, it wasn't very smoky at all, but I react now even to tiny amounts of smoke. And there were three kinds of smoke - cigarette smoke (which I'm allergic to), smoke machine smoke (which I'm really allergic to) and pot smoke (which I'm violently allergic to). So I spent the whole gig coughing, wheezing, blowing my nose and inhaling Olbas oil in an attempt to breathe. This is why I don't often go out to clubs or to see bands anymore - I really want to go, but I end up non-functional for three or four days afterwards. There's no way I could do it every weekend now.

Unhappy, stressed, anxious. Anxiety breeds anxiety, and none of my usual tricks for "snapping out of it" seem to be working.

Ah well - the results of this Are you a geek? test amused me.

You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough.

Aha! Sums me up perfectly... how scary, a 2-minute online test that actually tells you something meaningful about me?
