I am weary. Bone-tired. I get home from work, and all I want to do is lie down and take a nap. Eating is good, too, and I usually manage to do that, but I'll grab a couple hours of blissful slumber, get up, putter around until midnight, then go back to bed. The next day, I wake up and do it all over again. I suspect that's part of the problem: as of this past Monday, I've worked at the Duck U Bookstore for nine years. That's a long-ish time... it's the longest I've worked in any one place, times two-and-change. Oh sure, I worked in radio for eight years or so, but it was in two installments. If you're talking full-time employment, I ran a different bookstore for three years. So, yeah, long time in one place, looking at the same carpeting, the same ugly cream paint in my office, yadda.
I haven't really had any fun for a few months... oddly enough, it was work related, too. When I was last in Chicago, I had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (as described at the start of this post), and looking back at it, I had a great time. Sure, I've had dinner with The Librarian a few times since then, and that's fun, but for FUN FUN, I have to go back to February. That's depressing.
I haven't even enjoyed Formula 1. Maybe you've noticed? Or maybe you don't, because it feels like nobody is reading the F1U!s anymore... and I'm pretty sure I don't blame you.
I'm shutting up now. Stuff tomorrow and over the weekend.

I'm seriously thinking of packing up and moving to Hawaii.
I can say that I've been enjoying the F1 updates more than some of the actual races! ;p

2. Sorry I didn't comment on the Monaco post. I've been kinda blah myself lately.

@Mitch: Would you believe a F1 car weighs 1400 pounds with driver and fluids? So not even a ton, and not a whole lot of metal, either.
@SB: Big honkin' multivitamin every day; it alone gives me 70% of my Vitamin A, and at least 150% of the other three.

Have any thoughts on the Mercedes testing controversy? Or are you waiting to see what the FIA will say?

Sounds like it's definitely time to shake things up a little in Duckland though--all work and no play, and all that.
