Still tired.

Less annoyed, in general. This is good! I did much killing of things in NeverWinter Nights. I did, in fact, finish the game, last night.

Very pleased by unexpected feeding and satisfying of an entirely non-necessary bit of my often excessive curiosity. My curiosity is happy.

Damn sleep study people still haven't called me. Perhaps I should try to get their number from my doctor, if I haven't heard anything by Thursday (which is a week after they were given my information).

I wonder if I can convince my doctor to let me be sterilized yet? I'm tired beyond belief of birth control pills, and it's been quite irritating trying to find and get something _else_ which won't annoy me for the same reason (having to take them on a regular basis).

Get to find out if the pills for my kitty are having the expected effect tonight, as well as attempt to determine if he can have the dental cleaning done that he needs done. I'm pleased to note that as far as I can tell, [livejournal.com profile] ayalanya was able to give him his pills crushed in his food yesterday (with stuff I mixed, but there _was_ an obvious difference between what she and I do, so in theory she ought to be able to mix it the way he'll eat it herself, now). I'm also pleased to note that my tax refund ought to pay for all the unexpected costs for my kitty. So I shouldn't fall too far behind on my paying off of loans. (My car loan will be paid off next pay period!)

It's not raining today, but it's still cloudy. Dammit. But! It's not snowing, either.

Ought to be able to return to parking in a non-expensive place soon, as I doubt it'll snow past April. Hopefully my landlord manages to find me a space to park before next winter, so I don't have to move.

[livejournal.com profile] starandrea prompted me to write a reply to her post which I thought I should point to here.

I'm not putting it here because I don't have energy required to make it make sense on its own without her original post.

I feel like my reply may not make sense even _with_ her post, actually. Ah, well. It made sense to me upon writing, and I didn't want to take the time to make it more clear.

There is one nearly certain way to make me instantly hate a movie, book, or television show. (Nearly certain because if there are enough other positive factors, I might wait it out)

Have intentionally awkward situations as a form of entertainment. I'm fine with it to show character development (although it'll still make me uncomfortable), as long as the characters actually _do_ develop.

I _hate_ movies, TV, books where the characters make me feel the need to (or actually do it) yell at them every five seconds to stop being stupid about something, and say or do [foo] already!

I completely cannot understand this as a form of entertainment, but apparently it's a popular enough one that my disliking it as strongly as I do confuses people.

Yeah. This is really intended as an FYI, actually. I'm not really of the opinion that anyone would be able to explain it to me and have me actually comprehend it. :)

edit: I note, incidentally, that I am ok with, and can be amused by, things which come across to me as making fun of the genre. That said, though, my tolerance for movies and TV is low enough that such is fairly unlikely to be watched by me unless someone else suggests it.

edit edit: I may or may not be ok with movies that make fun of other genres that I can't deal with. Like... horror movies, TV series, or books which are intended to make people jumpy are _not_ good. Even, sometimes, if they are intended to make fun of such things.
