12:08am: According to my Wii Fit, I've lost 7.5 lbs since I last used it (in... May). I credit all that walking around at Pennsic (and eating Real Food most of the time, not just my typical bachelor chow of TV dinners and ramen). Yay, I guess. I totally blew off my health goal of Not Being As Horribly Out of Shape in 3 Months, but I set a new goal (that I will quite likely also blow off, because let's be realistic... I'm lazy).

My "husband" is so hot. Like, I probably should use a lap desk instead of having the laptop directly on my lap. I actually got heat rash on my knee where the battery is during a marathon Runescape session. Weee.

Galahad likes to sit behind me on top of the couch, but he keeps either whacking me with his tail or kicking me in the head. Thanks, buddy.

I have such a terrible tendency to get sidetracked while doing research. So, I was trying to look up local therapist types who specialize in social anxiety, and then I thought, hey, what about autism spectrum disorders? They have social issues too! And then I got distracted with the Wrong Planet discussion boards. (They're so interesting and often amusing.) And then I saw this: "Like those with Autism or PDD, persons with Asperger’s present with motor clumsiness. Fine motor skills, coordination, dexterity are just a few areas in which the child may present with a problem. Occasionally, facial tics (which are often associated with Tourette’s Syndrome, a diagnosis than commonly co-exists with AS) occur."

Yanno, that makes a lot of sense... then again, neurological/psychological quirks are so often intertwined. Boy, I'm such a psychology geek; I find all this stuff fascinating. (I think I read as much psychology articles/books as fiction, actually.) I minored in psych with no intention of applying it to a career, and I did pretty well (although I kept dozing off in social psych and nearly failed... of all the classes where I should have been paying attention...). Then again, Sex and Gender was definitely one of my favorite classes. (Any excuse for playing "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" in class is a good one.)

I'm always getting sidetracked. Bla bla psychology haha my cat is being a goof bla bla trannies bla bla nerdery.

I ramble too much. Weee. Ok, past my bed time... blew off laundry once again... but at least I got more canned food so the "kids" are happy.

8:36am: I've been dreaming like crazy this past week. In last night's dream, I was playing some sort of video game involving people. For some reason, I was trying to make someone get pregnant for whatever dream purpose I had, so I tried to make two women pregnant to speed things up in case it didn't work for one. (Usually when I play games that involve breeding, like The Sims, I'm very specific about who I breed, but I guess these were just random women.) But these women were rather old for childbearing (one was probably in her 40s, and the other was gray-haired and probably in her late 50s), so I didn't know why that was a good decision.

Then I was in a restaurant, and there was a party going on. I think it was supposed to be a Bork party, but I only recognized two or three random people, and the rest were imaginary dream-people. I was standing in line getting some sort of food (I think it was supposed to be a stuffed potato, but it kept falling apart.), and then I went to sit down. Someone handed me a few coins I was supposed to give to another woman. I was doing somethingorother and couldn't do it immediately. The woman kept staring at me, so when I finished doing whatever I was doing, I got up and handed her the coins. They had somehow multiplied until I had an overflowing handful, and there were a few dollar bills in there.

I left for some reason and met up with a guy and girl (I don't think they were actually real people, but they were young, maybe in their early 20s). We were walking down a road, and the guy was walking ahead of me while I pulled the girl in a little wagon. We wanted to go back to the restaurant (it was named Hobo Joe's and was apparently a Korean barbecue... WTF?), but we didn't know where it was. So we kept going down the road and eventually came to a big camp of Civil War reenactors, with a dead end to the road (it suddenly turned and led to a bridge, but it wasn't wide enough for a car). They were staring at us, I guess because we were being medieval and had stumbled into the wrong period. The guy and girl were in garb, but I was in mundanes. We stopped to talk to the people, and I decided to check my cell phone and some sort of GPS I had with me to see if I could find the restaurant. The girl was talking to some women there and said dramatically, "I'm talking to people... from the FUTURE!" It was even more hilarious in the dream, I guess.
