Beyond bored

I think I have either attained a true case of ennui or reached the Nirvana state of boredom. Not even the things that usually make me smile are appealing.

I think it's the weather. It's been cloudy/foggy here in the One Way World. It's depressing. No offense, Seattle, but I don't think I could live there. I'd like to visit, but after a very rainy October and the past week here in the center of the US, I don't believe I could handle all the clouds and rain for too long a time.

Oh... I did get Peter Gabriel's new album today. Hopefully that will make my drive home after work a little more entertaining.

March post! Aieee! Copics!!! Aieee!!!!!

Another month has passed us by. Hopefully Spring is not too far away. It's been a little warmer here in the One Way World. The mountains of snow are no longer looking like the Rockies, but more like the Appalachians. I still think the last of it will melt sometime in July or August. Worst thing about the melting... seeing all the dirt left behind. I'm afraid we're going to be in for one smelly Spring again.


My local Hobby Lobby store is cruel. They doubled the size of the display racks for the Copic markers... and have started to fill all the slots! It only took me three years and way more money than I care to admit I spent to get the original 72 colors they had. Now I have to really be careful and limit myself whenever I go in there and look.

However, I did break down and bought four of them yesterday. Two light skin tones and two middle shades of green. I can always use skin tones...


Well... I suppose I could wander off and find something useful to do, but why waste a perfectly good feeling of apathy?
