Good night

Bed time for me. Need sleep. G'nite all.

One of these days gotta post about the weekend. It was interesting. To me at least. Wish I had brought a camera. Need a digi cam! Sigh. Money.

Well, the test results are in. I do not have a thyroid problem.

This is a good thing. But it's also a bit disappointing. It'd be nice to be able to blame my low energy level on something like that, to pin it down and be able to explain it, and even better to be able to treat it. Oh well.

I have an odd mixture of relief and disappointment. Hmm.

On the other hand I can now put it behind me and get on with life. Oh well.

Now what?

Well, it's not thyroid disease or whatever. And it's not a bunch of other things, he ran a bunch of tests on me.


- stress
- poor eating habits
- lack of exercise

Those are the three big candidates. I actually don't eat all that poorly, so I don't think it's that. I get almost no exercise, but that's nothing new and it never left me so drained before. So I'm guessing it's primarily stress, which would make sense, considering the state of my life.

I need a good way to permanently remove stress. Maybe an operation. Or maybe that's why most people my age go get wasted every night. Can't blame 'em. Oh well, that shit's not for me.

So... gotta just keep chugging along I guess. Sigh. So tired. :/

New Year's Resolution

I'm going to bed early every night this week if at all humanly possible. Considering taking benadryl if that's what it takes to get me to sleep. Yes, I know it's not healthy, but I have been having minor allergy attacks anyway, it's not entirely unwarranted. And I'm only taking a couple before bed. If I can't sleep. So I'll be taking two I guess. :P

For my other New Year's Resolution I've decided to be more bitter, cynical, and morbid. There's not enough of that in the world.

    Billy Joel - Don't Ask Me Why


For kicks I decided to diddle with the idea of creating mood icons. Here are some "sketches". They're rough, as I did them in maybe 10 minutes, and with a mouse, as it's all I've got. Still, I think there's potential there. They show more emotion and personality than most of the icons I think. Obviously the final results would be smaller.

...did the dishes, had some dessert, had a glass of water and a vitamin, and took some benadryl. Hopefully sleep will come soon...
