I’ll start…...big mug of hot chocolate with cream de mint liquor in it and whipped cream on top.

I normally run four tracks at once, one in primary awareness and the others humming along like background noise, awaiting their turn for attention.

The music track is still running the wonderful score from Die Fledermaus, which I saw on Sunday.

The fretting track is worrying about a family member who is down in the dumps.

The what’s-next track is thinking about going fabric shopping to make some Christmas decorative items and wondering what’s for dinner.

And the current-state track is noticing that it’s looking gloomy and rainy outside, my hands are cold, and it’s probably time to eat something.

Dinner. It’s 6:15 ET and I had lunch a long time ago. I’m really thinking that food would be a great idea sometime real soon. Not sure what. Leftovers are in the fridge, but I’m sort of thinking that a pepperoni pizza might be what is called for today.

Thinking about making myself a chocolate lava cake (minus the peanut butter, yuck) to eat with vanilla ice cream and, since I don’t have any ceramic ramekins, whether I should use the muffin tin and line it with a muffin paper cup…decisions, decisions.

I am home sick and it is really stormy, I just got 2 new Netflix movies “Man on a ledge ” and “Trespass”....which one should I watch first?
I am also hungry, more flippin’ soup or do I have the energy to make some real food. I think the bottomless pot of chicken noodle soup wins again.

Why I having heard much on the news today about the evidence of water ice that was discovered on Mercury. I found out from the Science Channel facebook posting, but I haven’t heard from any other news source.

And this Z-Pak has been upsetting my tummy the past few days. grrr

First is the paper I have barely begun that is due at midnight tonight and second is what I am going to feed the family for dinner. Right now I am leaning toward letting them have cereal – pathetic I know. Not to mention that I am playing on Fluther rather than writing a paper.

Coloma's avatar

@jonsblond We’re Z-Pak twins…me too, bleh.

@Jeruba I did a three hour observation at a middle school library and I have to write a description of how the librarian practiced cultural responsiveness with the students she was teaching. I have all kinds of notes, I am just trying to get them organized and get the information on paper in some kind of coherent manner. On Saturday I have a four page paper due that is discussing the halachic view of euthanasia. Have I mentioned how happy I am this is my last semester of classwork? I ended up making pancakes for dinner though.

It wasn’t on my mind until I saw this question, but now I’m reminiscing about a quiet, pretty young lady I met in Singapore a lifetime ago. It was hot, and we had cold drinks at some bar. I can’t remember whatever became of the evening, but I do remember her eyes.

Unbroken's avatar

How hungry I am and if I should eat before or after my appt.
If I really want to get out of my comfort zone and join this new group with a hideously swollen eyelid.
Whether or not I can pull off an eye patch with flair. Or whether it will just bring more attention to me. Which leads me to think about the people with disabilities and how they get so they can hide it quite effectively so that the casual observer doesn’t immediately notice.

And considering what new phone I should buy.

What vitamins I should order since the same shipping and handling fee applies to orders no matter what the size.

These glasses I got yesterday. They’re kind of frustrating.
The UNCRPD (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability)
The most amazing guy on earth, whom I haven’t talked to in about a week. I miss him.
All the schoolwork I should have done today… Paper on Handel… Biology terms… algebra problems…
The fact that I should be living every day to the fullest. A lady at work about a week ago said “Oh, to be sixteen again…” in passing. It hit home with me.

Bellatrix's avatar

What would I take to a ‘white elephant party’?
Should I read that scholarly book and do some work or read another chapter of my novel?
What should I wear for dinner tomorrow?
I wonder if my children will ever have children?
I would love to have someone research my genealogy like Brooke Shields.

Pretty much all at the same time – I have sparkler brain.

Mariah's avatar

About three days ago I was suddenly struck with an awesome idea and have been wildly working ever since. I am so sleep deprived because I can’t tear myself away from it at night. It involves calculus, modeling, simulation, and programming. I’m having a ball, though I have to admit I’m not a fan of the confused, math-laden dreams it is giving me.

So I’m playing this game called Sacred 2 Fallen Angel. It’s a fantasy role playing game, highly influenced by Dungeons and Dragons, with their own twist. You pick your race which comes with its own title, or ’‘class’’. But any of the characters, you can decide to turn into whatever kind of fighter you like; a warrior, a wizard, an archer…I got a seraphim, which are beings created by Lumen, the god of light, also known as The Creator. I made mine basically a tank; I rely on physical attacks, and beefed up armor. Fuck magic. (unless they’re buffs)
Also, the gods gave us two arms for a reason; carrying around a wooden board wasn’t one of them; I don’t believe in shields. I wield massive two handed weapons of complete annihilation. That is, until I can learn the duel wield skill; but only if that lets you carry two handed weapons in each hand.

You also have an elf who seeks to prove herself, a dryad who wants to destroy that which ails nature, two humans (an undead warrior wanting to find rest and peace, and an inquisitor who’s basically the polar opposite of the seraphim) and a robotic animal man, given a soul by Lumen. (like an anthropomorphic robot dog, or fox) Not sure what his job is.
The seraphim is a good being naturally, so you can’t be evil, and the inquisitor (human) is evil so you can’t be good with him. The Seraphim are to make sure that order is maintained in the world. (shoulda picked an inquisitor) The others, you can be good or evil apparently. Haven’t tried any of them yet.

All that just to say, I’m the seraphim; I guess they’re taller than most elves and humans, since every humanoid, so far, is much shorter than me. I’m seven feet tall, I have glowing armor, a halberd that’s like sixteen feet long and is on fire, and I ride around on a saber toothed tiger. I know it’s a video game, and being that it’s fantasy oriented, I shouldn’t be looking for much realism or consistency when it comes to a bunch of shit that doesn’t exist. (even though tripping on something in real life often reminds me of how frighteningly close to reality D&D rules can get)

But why won’t petty thugs stop attacking me? Would you attack a crazy angel lady riding around on a fucking saber toothed tiger? Who’s wearing armor that’s better suited for a Star Wars movie than a sword/sorcery setting?
I wouldn’t attack a normal person riding around on a normal tiger! Never mind an angel swinging around what looks to be a mix between a naginata and a telephone pole.
There wouldn’t be so much death in Ancaria if everyone wasn’t so stupid and suicidal.

Also, my crazy ass saber toothed tiger totally rules yo! :D

Mmm, that would have been yummy. I ended up making spaghetti, using vegetable pasta (it was really good!), so everyone here has been fed. :)

How absolutely roasting hot it is here and that I wish it would cool down.

Why can I never find what I want when I need it? If I didn’t want this thing, I would see it everywhere.

Why is my dog woofing – and why are other people in the house ignoring him?

I watched this movie, King Arthur, which takes the tale of Arthur and portrays him as a Roman officer, who is sent on a perilous mission, which takes a big bulk of the movie. But eventually, he and his knights have to face off against vicious Saxon invaders, led by their ruthless leader, Cerdic. So I just wanted to totally share one bit of the movie, near the end;

Before the big battle, both Arthur and Cerdic meet under a white flag. They have a bit of a conversation.

Arthur; I came here to see your face. So that I could mark it, and come for you in battle. And you’d better mark mine; because it will be the last thing you will ever see on this Earth.

Arthur rides off, leaving a seemingly perplexed Cerdic behind.

Cerdic; Finally…a man worth killing.

Lol you gotta love antagonists who just don’t give a shit. :D

I’m thinking about and craving a well-made mixed berry pie and mind you, I don’t even like fruit pies all that much.

Coloma's avatar

@jordym84 Well….not to throw pie in your face, and I could run with the puns forever….but…eat your heart out, I JUST baked an apple/ blackberry cobbler last night. It is deeeelicious! Neener neener…lol

jordym84's avatar

@Coloma Ahhhh I’m dying here! And I have berries nowhere in sight. I think I’ll go make myself a chocolate chip banana bread to eat with Nutella. Hopefully that’ll do the trick. But I know that, deep down, I’ll be thinking about that apple/blackberry cobbler :(

I want to go to bed but my neigh-bors are in my yard and I can’t get a hold of their owners.
The big brats came through the easement gate at the bottom of my yard and are now tromping around grazing on my lawn. Nothing like a horse to surprise you in the hot tub. lol
Oh well…they can hang til morning,the gates are closed now, after the horses escaped. Heh!

Enjoying the beauty of the thick fog we have this evening. I went outside to enjoy the moment and was greeted by barking fox that were startled by a passing train.

@Bellatrix I hope you enjoy the show as much as I do. :)

nice sunny day here. about 50 degrees. would like to go on a picnic. probably the last one for the season.

That the birds are all very happy out there this morning. The dawn chorus is raucous this morning. Plus I’m hungry and thinking about all the things I need to do today. I have to see the travel agent about a BIG trip next year and I am so excited.

I’m enjoying my electronic cigarette. Since I’m vaping now I suppose that makes me vapid.

I am thinking about all the bills I just paid. Bah Humbug.haha

@augustlan Well…if it makes you feel any better I paid mine with the plastic, not my real money. lol

Mariah's avatar

Mockingbirds. Specifically the one living on campus. It’s getting to be a reliable find while I walk to breakfast in the morning. I guess it is a female because it never makes a peep, which would be unusual for a male. They are very territorial birds, and I find it attacking its reflection in parked cars’ mirrors pretty often, which is cute. I’ve never seen a bird that moves quite like this one. I guess it’s the long tail. They are extremely graceful birds, I love seeing it. I wish it would sing for me, though.

Based on how often I see it, in the same area of campus, I just know it’s gotta have a nest somewhere. Today I noticed a nest way up in a nearby tree that had some very cute commotion coming from it. Too high for me to see in, but I’ll bet we have young mockingbirds. Love it.

Coloma's avatar

@Mariah I had a Mockingbird around a few years ago that mimicked the sound of a phone ringing. Seriously!
I would go to answer my phone and it was the damn bird out on my deck rail “ringing.” lol

RandomGirl's avatar

@Coloma That’s hilarious.

bookish1's avatar

@Coloma: There was a mockingbird who imitated the beeping sound that signalled that my dryer cycle was over.

I’ve been thinking about how I could possibly say anything to my mother to get her to fuck off with her sickening cognitive dissonance and false holiday cheer that serves no purpose but to make her feel like she’s a good mother and I’m just going through a troubled phase of “gender confusion.” A 24 year phase. I’ll come to my senses eventually, once my frontal lobe fully develops. Fuck this shit.

jordym84's avatar

@bookish1 I don’t mean to minimize your situation, but I just wanted to share this: after reading your comment twice, I somehow thought you said you were thinking about how you could possibly teach the mockingbird to throw off your mother, like it did you with the beeping. It took me three tries to realize that the first and second parts of your comment were not in any way connected. I need sleep…ASAP! ~

The bizarre dream I had last night, a bunch of government airplanes landing in my yard to explore a hidden cave of underground aliens whose hatch is beneath a giant oak tree in my yard.
Totally off the wall dream, must have been the article I read on multiverses and the beer, cole slaw and crackers with chive and onion cream cheese I had for a bedtime snack. lol

Really annoyed with my friend. All he uses me for anymore is to rant to and cry about stuff. I’m glad to be a friend to him during a rough patch but it’s getting really old. I feel bad for feeling that way though.

I hate that I’m feeling scared sending my daughter to school today. I know she will be safe, but I also know many parents in Newtown, Connecticut felt safe sending their children to school last Friday. This is a reminder to everyone to tell the ones you love how much you love them before they leave for the day.

Symbeline's avatar

I’m thinking man…I had to enable all the Vita Chambers in order to beat the Big Sister on hard mode. Jesus H. She keeps wasting me unless I play like a coward. Then the Big Daddy was just stomping my ass in the ground, until I spammed a rebirth spot right next to him so everytime he killed me, he didn’t have time to replenish his health. I beat him with my drill.

I ain’t no good at FPS’s, but before hard mode I never beat anything with my drill, or barely. It takes like two hits to die, corpses never have anything on them and to boot, the game freezes and crashes every time I hit continue, so I gotta manually load my last save every time.

LIFE IS TOO HARD.

And even if I get all the trophies for this eventually, there’s still all the multiplayer trophies to get, and last I tried playing multiplayer, my PS3 refused to even acknowledge my presence.

but I DID escape with some trophies

The insignificant and petty bullshit some people complain about.

Symbeline's avatar

So that game I’m playing that I was talking about in this thread, Bioshock 2…in it, you have to save these ’‘little sisters’’. By doing so, you get energy, in the form of points which you use to buy abilities and improve your character’s health and whatnot. But sometimes, after you saved a little sister, a big sister comes after you. As far as I can tell she pops up for every three little sister you save. There’s about three to four little sisters per level.
Now this big sister enemy is the hardest one in the game, being a complete goddamn nuisance on hard mode which I’m playing now. And she’ll follow you everywhere in the level, you can’t escape, you have to beat her.

…except I totally ripped off the game haha. I was done with one of the levels, and just had to get on a train and leave for the next level. But when I went on the train, the game said I forgot one little sister, so I went back for her. After saving her, the big sister appeared. I was like, aaw man…but then I’m like, you know what, fuck this. I ran back to the train, started it and left the level, leaving the big sister behind me. Take that you horrible bitch lol.

I almost thought she’d follow me into the next level…which she didn’t. Although I didn’t have a choice but to fight her again later…and I kicked her ass. barely, but I got her
