Static in My Attic from Channel Z.

Today's Novel Progress: 809 words.

Lately, my mind feels like a radio with a broken dial. I keep getting different signals. Happy, sad, angry, content, paranoid, secure, loving, ostracized, ambitious, apathetic, etcella, etcetella, etcetella. My superego's tinny little voice that's whispering, "it's not supposed to be this way," but that's probably because TV, book, and movie characters don't ever act like that. Unless, of course, they're bloody loonies. Right now, I'm listening to The Beatles' White Album for the same reason 3/4 of the people on this train are wearing headphones: to drown out the other faulty radio between our ears. "Everywhere there's lots of piggies, living piggy lives (snort snort) You can see them out for dinner with their piggy wives..."


PS Am I the only one NOT looking forward to the new Bond film? I don't know, the last one - although extremely well done - just wasn't any fun. The best Bond films all have just a touch of camp, IMHO.

I agree that campy Bond movies are the best.

Re: tinny voices: Are you depressed? Eating OK? Sleeping OK? Sleeping ENOUGH? Only as irritable as usual? I worry about you! Sorry to sound like a mother.

This is going to sound weird, but I walked out of Casino Royale thinking, "Man, I can't wait to see the next one." Now that the next one is here, though, I can't work up the enthusiasm. Curious.

KPW, you worry like a sister too. :)

Speaking as Toine's... this is kind of what I said before about being bombarded with messages from the media. You need a vacation, maybe? I know that's not likely to happen soon, but maybe a day to yourself?

love, me

I suppose I'm fine, just extremely introspective. Thanks to everyone for asking! Perhaps it's not my superego, maybe it's just my awareness, which would make it my ego. It's whatever part of my brain is aware that another part seems to be acting peculiar.

This is the first Bond film in many a year that I don't plan to see at the cinema - I just hated the last one...
