oxfordtweed: (My Wasted Heart - Mark)
Woke up this morning to find that Ryan had crawled back to the bedroom and turned on the fan. I hate having the fan on when I'm trying to sleep, because it makes me cold. Like, really cold. My back seizes up and I get all headachey and generally unpleasant.

The heater didn't do anything but spit out cold air at me, so I took a bath. But the bath was too hot, and now the scratches on my ankle" burn like hell and hurt again and it's all I can think about. Also, I feel very slow and sleepy now. And a tiny bit overheated, I think.

Today is just going to be one of those days, I think.

*The other day, I don't know if I mentioned this, I scratched the hell out of my ankle. As in, I was just sort of zoned out and absently scratching at myself, and the next thing I knew, I was bleeding all over myself. It happens sometimes. Usually, I just wind up knicking myself, but this time, I wound up with several long almost friction burn-looking things on my ankle.

Ah, well. I just won't wear socks for a few days.

I wear sunglasses with red lenses whenever I leave the house. I like the red lenses for a few reasons; you hardly ever see them, and the really help mute blues and greens without turning everything all brown. The glasses I wear right now happen to also have those perfectly round lenses, about 4cm across, with very thin, silvery frames.

I just went to Starbucks, because I fancied a decaf Venti and one of their banana nut bread thingies. So, I'm standing there in my pyjamas and coat and red sunglasses, and the barista mentioned my glasses. The conversation went like this:

Barista: I like your glasses.
Me: Thank you.
Barista: They're very red.
Me: They could stand to be a bit darker, but they get the job done.
Barista: Are they prescription, or just for fun?
Me: They're because it's very bright in the desert.
Barista: ... I feel smart.

At least she didn't mention John Lennon, and start singing Imagine at me. Like everyone else does.

I want to write, but I can't think.

This sucks.
oxfordtweed: (Sherlock - Hi...!)
Hey, Sherlock Holmes peeps! There's a new comm out there that you might be interested in.

[livejournal.com profile] 221b_after_dark

Feel free to post works there which deal with some of the darker subject matter that the Sherlock Holmes fandom seems to like so much. Any canon is welcome, and posting is unmoderated.

Basically, yes. This is in response to something that happened in one of the other comms, which I won't name, but if you saw it, then you probably know what I'm talking about. Anyway, go. Post. Have fun!
