It’s one of those weeks: I’ve just been feeling half-asleep, apathetic, can’t concentrate on my work. This morning I arrived and I noticed 10 mins after walking into the office that half my dress was still undone at the front! Chrissakes. Luckily I was wearing a shirt underneath and a big scarf over it, and everyone was focussed on their compscreen so hopefully no one noticed! I just felt like O_o. How can you not check if your dress is done up?!

I need a holiday!

I just came back from a holiday, so go figure. But work before was really hectic: In the last month I travelled first to a conference in Glasgow which was rewarding but quite stressful, and was in Frankfurt right after for the Book Fair. Meanwhile of course production was piling up on my desk, so I was up into it when I returned, when barely two weeks later I left for an impromptu last-minute 5 days city trip to Madrid with the boyfriend to celebrate his last free days before going back to work after a long illness that cost him a job. I worked myself silly getting everything done beforehand and went back to work the day after I got back from Spain. That’s where I’m now, once again up to my neck in work. Those 5 days don’t really disconnect you, and though Madrid was gorgeous and sunny and wonderful and beautiful (why doesn’t everyone go there, like omg?!), I think I need a few days off to stay at home, so I can actually relax and read and write a little, get grounded. The thing is that because I feel so tired, my work is suffering, and because my work is suffering, I feel I can’t take time off. Which makes me feel stuck. Really I can’t complain because I’ve been all over Europe this month and should feel gratified. Which I do. I just want some me-time now. Me me me. Cuddle the kitties. Sleep in. Take long hot showers. Read fanfic, maybe write up some prompts. Don’t think of work and deadlines for a bit, ya know. /whinging

I did get a chance to watch SPN 6x06 of course! Third episode in a row which I really enjoyed (Angst, yeah, bring it on!). Maybe the show really has recovered from S5 sucktitude? Looking forward to more more more again.

Yesterday I watched Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief. The movie was pretty formulaic in storyline, but I’ve always had a thing for Greek Mythology so I enjoyed the creativity in fitting the old stories into a modern wrapper, and have an affinity to young heroes discovering their ability. So now I’m wondering if I should maybe read the books. Are they worth reading (like HP was) or are they written exclusively to a younger audience?

PS. 2 days until I get Towers of Midnight in the mail!! W0000000T!
