mosquito coil from kaka

Dilemma

Dou shiyou, dou shiyou?

My feet have been like rising breadloaves all week and my knee screams in sympathy, so I promised me a weekend lying on the sofa with my leg up doing nothing until things shrank. Even got anime and wuxia to watch if I didn't feel like reading: which I don't, in my dark living room that needs a 200 watt lightbulb to render text remotely legible. But it's stupid to be sitting inside reading under a lightbulb- or even watching Samurai Deeper Kyo with the lights off- on a warm sunny day when I want to be out on a patio somewhere drinking iced coffee and reading by the reflected sunlight. Alas, sitting is the one thing my knee does *not* want me to do. As I know because, if I must be indoors, the thing I want to do -and do do, alas- is play Addiction Solitaire here at the computer. A very little of that and I can't even stand up afterwards.

Now if only it were grey and typhoony (though I'm glad it's not because Caribana gets hit with bad weather far too often) I'd be happy to sit on the sofa. I was doing that until 1 am Thursday night, going through my FMA eps from last October on. I could have read all night- I could have read all night- and still have begged for more. Collapse )
