Wooly [Nov. 28th, 2003|06:06 am]
rejectomorph
The clouds hunkered down and made the night dense, so that walking into it was like pushing through veils of darkness and becoming lost among them. I didn't go far. Somewhere at the back of my mind was that old belief that deep darkness is always filled with bears.

Somehow, I didn't get around to writing my November 27th nostalgia piece. I've been quite distracted lately. More than usual, I mean, since I'm well aware that distraction is my normal state. But recently there have been times when I have gathered so much wool that hours pass without notice. I think I might be in a state of semi-hibernation. If this is the case, then the darkness does indeed contain at least one bear, of a sort.

Not for long, as the sun already threatens the eastern horizon with another day. I shall now bury myself under the night's gathered wool and sleep. Things are much too strange.

This bear came out of hibernation for work today. Too much food did indeed leave us all comatose. Even work is strange, most people took the day off, others called in to cover. All the wrong people are here!

I've worked in places where the wrong people were there every day. In fact, I think I was one of them.

I'm frequently the wrong one, myself.
Example:
We had a new library patron the other day, and I was too nice to him. (I should explain that while I am good at being fast and efficient, I'm not always perceived as friendly. Some people are damn glad to have me get stuff done quickly so they can leave, though) Invariably when I am able to be genuinely friendly to a newcomer, they turn out to be trouble. He came back another time and insisted that I help him, which my co-workers found highly amusing. This is going to be one high-maintenance customer, and it'll be my fault.

I'm afraid I'll not show up in the current mood, as I have a tendency to make up my own moods in the little boxes. Sometimes I run out of space.

On those rare occasions when I use the mood box at all, I too make up my own. Maybe the script for the collective mood indicator should include provision for "mood free" and "unique mood" groups.

The lj mood thing is a rather pleasant surprise-- contrary to the lj stereotypes, most people are currently amused, with happy and bored fighting for second place.

It's interesting to watch it change over time. This afternoon, bored seems to be predominating. That must be the post-holiday letdown. I'm anxious for some major event to take place, so that I can see what effect it has on the communal mood.
