Chords, discord and Julie Beatty

For a few days now, I've been struggling through Juliet, Naked. Well, perhaps struggling is a bit strong. I'd start reading, laugh away on my own for a bit at some particularly original bit of wit, and then be unable to carry on any further. Good thing the book's quite short. I'm well over halfway done already!

But the trouble really is of the noise inside the head variety. Static, rushing wind, that sort of thing. Happens an awful lot when I've got things to do, but can't really be bothered. Which isn't the case at the moment, come to think of it. So maybe I've got that one backwards. Either way, trying to drown it out with music. Working only some of the time.

On top of that, for some reason this time the whole "Oh my god! It's time to go on break!" thing's started building up way too early. Normally it's a couple of days. Maybe. This time it started with well over a week to go!! It's quite annoying to be honest, gets in the way of things. And there's still four and a wake-up to go!

Anyhoo. It's not that I've forgotten about the India quarter-final that's going on right now. I just decided that since I can't watch it, I will not follow it at all. At least that way, in my head, the possibility of a longer run to the finals, and Sachin's last chance at that trophy, stays alive and well till tomorrow morning. It would appear that the only match I have any hope of catching a live telecast of will be the final :(.

Feeling: lost-ish, but in a good way, sort of
