Why do we still do Daylight Savings Time? I'm so grouchy and so tired. We had a nice visit with my brother and his girlfriend, but too short and I opened my mouth perhaps too much. He'll be back soon for his book tour. His book tour! You should buy his book! We had a nice time, ate pretty well, enjoyed a favorable adult-to-child ratio.

I said I wanted to post more here and be on Facebook less. I haven't. Hardly anyone comments anymore here (guilty, and I hardly post either), and the comments over there are so addictive. Actually, I think a lot of people are addicted to Facebook. I'm also not so sure it makes anyone happier. It's easy to post links (with inviting previews) to interesting articles. This is lovely, but more often the articles either distract me from what I should be doing (even if it's posting in my neglected blog or playing my turn at Scrabble), or they're about some issue that raises my blood pressure both with the injustice of whatever situation and with the feeling that I'm powerless to fix it. Then there's the suggestion that everyone else is having fun without ne. Oh, look, 200 pictures of a party you didn't invite me to! But hey, you sent me an invitiation too! ... to sponsor you in your half-marathon. I know Bitch Brain overblows these things, but Facebook feeds her. Books do not. Even LJ does not.

Perhaps this sounds depressed. I'm not, I'm just trying to be sure I'm aware of what these things do to me. This week is going to be intense: work, late meeting, concert tonight; Wednesday and Thursday nights and Friday morning, I'm running three different workshops, all with just a few hours today for prep. I want to stuff my mouth with croissants and my brain with Facebook fluff, but neither will help me get it all done. So I'm packing up my lentil soup and apples, and clicking the little red "X" in the upper right-hand corner.

Have a good one.
