Funny how I forgot about that.  I've worked second shift for years and started developing what I suspected was winter depression.  Lethargic, bored, sleeping long hours, never wanting to get up.  Somehow, I thought that would be fixed by moving to a first shift schedule.  After all, I'm actually seeing daylight in the winter now, right?

Not so much.  It didn't even occur to me what was happening.  Just got more and more reclusive.  Procrastinated more and more.  Stopped reading.  The works.  Mainly I've been watching TV.  Bought a new 47" and set up a new speaker system (some new, some old).  I've watched I don't know how many DVDs, BluRays, downloads, you name it.  Finally got caught up on Doctor Who.  Then, I got upset because the next episode doesn't come out until the end of March.  I love that show.  Factually inaccurate in a lot of ways, but very creative, very different.

And one thing I don't get.  In the first episode of the series Torchwood, Captain Jack Harkness (an American character), played by a British-American actor who lived his formative years in the US, pronounces estrogen in a way I can only guess as being a British pronunciation.  Weird.

Anyway, I'm going to try to get on track again.  Starting today.
