Starting Over

 

Just stumbled across an interesting tidbit of information - did you know that the voice of adult Nala in The Lion King was provided by Moira Kelly, who played Mandy in the first season of The West Wing? 

I love discovering connections like this between shows/movies that I enjoy.

 

Woke up late again today.  This is not a good thing. I mean, yes, it's nice to sleep in, but not this much! 
Ha.  I remember when waking up at 11 was way too early.  What's sad is that it was less than three months ago that this was the case. It's crazy how quickly things can change! 

Anyway, woke up late, like I said.  Had open-faced egg mcmuffins for breakfast - delicious!  Did pretty much shit-all between breakfast and lunch... read some Firefly fanfiction.  Firefly seems to have become my latest mini-obsession.  There is some really good fiction out there, and there are some very talented writers.  I don't know if I like the tendancy to focus on River, though.  I suppose she is the most interesting character in the fandom in that she is the most bizarre, but I find her boring.  She's too predictable.  I can't relate to her.

Also, "River" is a dumb name. Sorry. It's right up there with "Apple".

You may recall a few days ago, when I mentioned that I've been re-reading The Bell Jar.  I am nearly finished with chapter eleven, and I'm a little disturbed by how much I can relate to this novel.  I don't particularly want to go into details now, but you can expect a post about this later on, when I've finished the book again. 

Played some DDR this afternoon... I thought it would make me feel like shit, but besides being perhaps a bit more difficult than I would have preferred, I feel pretty good.  I actually had fun!  I'll probably have another go at it tomorrow, I don't want to overdo things and turn myself off of the only tolerable form of exercise I have available when it's this bloody cold outside. 

I really need to lose some weight.

I feel so much better now that I know the Prednisone dose is coming down. I know it's entirely psychological, but I can tolerate the side effects much more easily now that I know they will be going away soon. 

I can't wait to feel NORMAL again.

 

Watched two episodes of Firefly tonight, followed by Moulin Rouge. 

The more I see of Firefly, the more I enjoy it.  I can't decide how I feel about some of the characters, which is a nice change from most TV shows I see these days.  I usually find myself able to form opinions very quickly about characters in TV shows, and these opinions usually don't change.  Where's the fun in that? 

I like it when my chosen form of entertainment (be it a TV show, movie, game, etc.) surprises me or proves me wrong. 

I like it even more if it does so more than once.
