Yesterday turned out to be a challenge. When I had two jobs, there was enough work to keep me very busy during the day, and as a result I was able to block out a lot of the student hijinks going on around me in the library. Now that I'm back to just one job, I'm seeing more hijinks and feeling the need to intervene. I suppose that's better for the library but it's less pleasant for me!
And wow, did I ever sleep last night. I went to bed a little after 9 p.m., and I had a long series of dreams that took me twisting and winding along the shell marl coastal backroads of rural Florida. I didn't remember the plots when I woke up -- I never remember my dreams -- but there were a few flickering afterimages in my mind, like retinal ghosts.
Dave and I, trying to broaden our cultural horizons, watched the first episode of "Game of Thrones" on Sunday. I was immediately biased against the show because we have to buy it from iTunes for $4.99 per episode, which is just ridiculous. But we splurged on one just to see what's up. It's a bit too bloody and graphic for my taste. Even days later, I am haunted by the image of the boy being thrown off the tower. I just don't need unpleasant stuff like that in my life, do I?
I've finally finished putting my best photos from the Seychelles online. Should you be so inclined, you can see them here.
