We went to see Troy today, which was fun. I really enjoyed the movie, even though I knew the general gist of the story. I want to reread the Illiad now, and brush up on my Greek mythology. I was ashamed to say I couldn't remember who Hector was until we were in theater.
After reading a recent entry of saribou's regarding the usage of the term 'fanboy', I've been making efforts to exclude it from my vocabulary. I've found, to my chagrin, that there are a couple of folks of my aquaintance that.... well... no other word sums them up quite as well. I don't mean it in a derogatory sense; I actually feel sorry for this particular friend.. but... yeah. Being with him is sometimes unpleasant due to his.... lack of proper socialization.
I've been in a bit of a funk since we got home. We got to talking about dietary issues after lunch (I ate waay too much today and yesterday) and.. after the movie, my mind just started zeroing in on negative things. I don't think it helped much that my own efforts for better health have pretty much stalled since I saw the nuitritionist. I don't know if I was always this way, or if my body and tastes have changed as I've gotten older, but... geez this is really getting annoyingly hard. :P
Added to the self-depreciation, I found myself angry about a situation that's out of my control. I want to scream and rant and rave at the source of the frustration, but I know that it would be counter productive, and the best thing for me to do is just let it go, and let that person make their choices and deal with the consequences thereof. Even though it's really hard not to yell at them, 'Is this what you really want? Do you see what you're doing?!'
I wish I had a more up beat entry tonight. I think stress and fatigue are just catching up to me to the point where I am just not really myself lately. I've been sleeping alot, but I don't really feel like I'm resting. (And yes, I know I'm a very good candidate for sleep apnea. I just.. don't have the energy to deal with another medical problem right now)
I really need this vacation.
