January Hodge Podge

Ahh hodge podge.  What I resort to when I have nothing in mind to write about or I haven't spent enough time reading up on a topic to feel comfortable blogging about it.

In this case it's the latter.  You see, the day sort of got away from me. 
Remember from yesterday's post where I mentioned falling asleep while reading?  I thought reading in the afternoon sun would be a remedy for that.  Snow finally stopped falling yesterday and we've got about seven inches on the ground outside.  The temperature fell to zero last night and today's high was only in the upper teens.  Good day to stay inside and read.  The NFL playoffs were on and that lends itself to the great indoors as well.

After securing pizza bellow the hatches, I got in front of the TV, wrapped myself in a blanket, and picked up my book while the game began.  That's when it happened.
My dog Butterscotch jumped up onto me and curled herself into a ball on my chest.  A cozy feeling on a real winter's day.  Yet it has its drawbacks.
Look at the elements involved here: full stomach, warmth, cushion, reclined posture.  Yep.  I was a goner.  "I'm just going to close my eyes for a bit."  That was my desinence.  I woke up just in time to see a back and forth throwdown in the last minutes of 49ers/Saints game.

I do have glasses.  They are supposed to help fight off the sleepy feeling that arises while reading.  They're also coated with anti-glare film for computer use.  I'm wearing the glasses right now as I type.  However, for the glasses to actually be helpful for reading, I should probably wear them while reading.  There's a thought.  Yep.  Need to work on that.

Musically, I've been on a real heavy metal kick for the past two weeks.  Today, I find myself getting back to what I typically listen to.  Here's the current playlist:

10,000 Maniacs--"These Are The Days"
The Smiths--"Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before"
Tears For Fears--"Head Over Heels"
Talking Heads--"Take Me To The River"
