Random thoughs at 12:46...

It's depressing to be an expert sometimes. I just had to turn off part of a documentary about the history of Rock and Roll, the section about The Beatles. Do you know why? Because I already knew each and every fact, anecdote, and person presented in the program. To know there is little left to learn on a subject of vapid interest is kind of upsetting. It almost makes me sick that I know things like the name of one of John Lennon's first girlfriends, whom he used to have sex with when his aunt went out to play bridge. Her name was Thelma Pickles...I suppose that isn't an easy name to forget though. I hate the disappointed look on people's faces when they attempt to tell me a new Beatle fact, only to find that I already knew the track in the background of "I Am the Walrus" is Richard V, or that Andy White played drums on the first session of "Love Me Do", having replaced Pete Best, and coming in as a studio musician before George Martin let Ringo play. There are some downsides to a good memory, it would seem.

Someone keeps turning my hide figures around. I have them set up at my computer, so I assume it's my mother. Maybe I like J-pop because I don't know all there is to know yet. Regardless, I have to turn all my hides around again. I hope I can find the other figures to complete the set sometime. Only two left to go, after all.

I'm getting tired awfully early these days. I'm barely awake as it is, but something internal just won't let me sleep yet. I'm tired, but restless.

I missed the deadline for my freshman class book thingy. Oh well, guess I'm just not gonna be in it. People will have to meet me by, I dunno, meeting me. I'm not terribly photogenic as is, so it's no great loss I suppose. Still, with the close of high school, it would have been nice to have a small break from deadlines. Guess I'm out of luck.

I'm not sure if I'm tired, depressed, sick, or just suffering from a headache. At any rate, looks like it's bedtime for me. Hopefully, reading some Fushigi Yuugi manga will help me drift into pleasant, manga-style dreams.
