I feel weird today, like I sometimes do when I've forgotten to take my asthma meds (which I haven't) and am low on both oxygen and the mood-altering properties of stimulants. I suppose is in no small way related to the fact that I still sort of feel like I'm operating my body and mouth by distant, intermittent remote control (I find myself lying as I retell stories because my brain has gotten distracted and has stopped paying attention). My nights and days, dreams and actions, still feel fairly interchangeable. If anything, I actually felt *more* coherent when I broke down and had a drink last night (the new Stargate ep definitely necessitated a round of Drinking Stargate). Could be because my real evening involved a three-legged hamster alternately named "Tripod" and "Walter Perry", and a potential homicide at the TGIFriday's.
I want to disappear from outside stimulation and knit in a very small room for awhile. I want to swim freestyle until I can't feel my body at all, almost like I feel right now, but things always feel normal in the water.
In other news, Over the Rhine has a new song called nobody number one that I, of course, love. You can download here, although the link might change to a different song once the calendar switches over to February -- I think the song was only up for download for a month. Over the Rhine is one group that absolutely never fails to reach inside me. If there was a single musical group on the planet that was me, they would so, so be it for no logical reason at all.
