The fun never stops. It just slows down to a crawl.

L'shana tovah to my Jewish friends. I hope you have a very good Rosh Hashanah. Frankly I am glad it's not a new year on the calendar I observe, because I feel like I can manage going on with things, but having to start new today would be more than I have the energy for. I'm not sad or mopey or angry or sick or anything like that. I'm just low on energy.

(Not that this never happens on the new year I do observe.)

I seem to be that level of low-energy where I stare at the half-written lj post and think, "...and stuff. Er somethin'." And then I look around and think, "Now would be a time for doing a useful thing. If I...knew of a useful thing...to do. Um." And then I spotted the cell phone bill that needed paying, and I paid it, and I felt all virtuous until I realized that there is an entire day left to go. So possibly it is not the time to expect great things of me, is what I'm saying. I think my next great and virtuous task will be going to get a glass of juice. Yah, I know, fasten your seatbelts. Always a thrill with me.

I am not reposting the thirty-some question meme some of my friends are posting, but I had a question sparked by it: do you consider yourself an optimistic person? And if so, do you feel optimistic right now? And if so, in what areas of life? Your personal life, or scientific progress, or the upcoming election in the US, or the upcoming election in Canada, or your 9-year-old's progress playing an instrument, or what? Let's hear about optimism. The people who feel optimistic about nothing surely need it.

(I am not among them. I feel optimistic about my PT, and about The True Tale of Carter Hall, and about the Large Hadron Collider, and lo these many other things. Not energetic. But optimistic.)
