What Are You Doing Right Now?

Me................. Well, i'm sitting here at my desk looking at my fish (a male beta, named, Ollie) he's just lying there, at the bottom of his tank not moving a muscle... looks like maybe he's sleeping. Hmmm! he must have senced being watched cause he just all of the sudden swam to the top and made a quick swim around in a circle and now he's back to the bottom just resting again. At this point i'm thinking... gee, it must be boring to be a fish; nobody to look at, nobody to talk to nobody to argue with, no this and no that. Just sit there in a tank of water and wait for each day to come and the owner shows up and says "Good Morning, Ollie, You Ready For Breakfast" and down comes a few sprinkles of fish food. And that's it until the next day.

I'm watching LOST, which we recorded earlier tonight (season opener).

It will be worth it, but don't take your eyes off of it because it's all over the place (and all over time)!

It is 8 am here in UK. I am enjoying my cup of coffee in bed and watching morning GMTV. I will be checking my emails before I get up, for another busy day ahead.

I'm going off to school in a minute (teaching rather than learning)

I'm watching reruns of Law and Order. Snacking on tostitos and jalapeno cheese dip, washing it down with a coke.

I'm about to enter a few quick sweepstakes, then I will go to bed and watch an episode of "Lost in Space" with my Honey Bunny, and then I will go to sleep.
