Tired and cranky and tired and cranky and tired and cranky and cold. Bah humbug.

It seems everything's getting piled on me at once - in addition to the usual shit, things aren't going so great at work - and I just feel so done. And to top it off, it's bitterly cold out. Even my bedroom is cold. My hands are freezing. I'm displeased.

Kind of want to pull out the tarot cards and do a reading, but on the other hand, cranky. And I just haven't felt right about it since the fire - tried reading once or twice, but I was just uncomfortable with it, the cards didn't feel right. I dunno, maybe I should just handle them a little, take a look at them, see how I feel after that.

Tired and cranky and cold. BRRRRR.

Recently I've been listening to an audiobook of Stephen King's Firestarter, and it reminded me of how much I used to love stories of psychic and parapsychological phenomena. Yes please, give me alllll the telepathy and pyrokinesis and telekinesis and clairvoyance and that sort of stuff. *_* This book hits me just as well as it did the first time I read it, ages and ages ago. (Though actually, I can't remember which bit of fiction it was that got me interested in psychic powers first. Was it Stephen King's novels - both Firestarter and The Dead Zone? Or did I watch Weiss Kreuz first? Or is it just that R-- introduced me to the idea? Oh, well.)

Anyway, it's been a nice little walk down a road that I used to enjoy very much. For a while there, I kind of cut off my taste for that thing in fiction (along with many other things) due to associating it with someone that I'm not involved with any more. But, some time has passed, so... maybe it wouldn't hurt to explore that subgenre again.

Now that I think of it - if any of you have suggestions for books/movies/etc featuring psychic powers, I'd love to hear about them. Psychic, rather than magical, to be clear. In particular I like it best when these powers have to be kept hidden. My frame of reference is, like I mentioned, mainly Stephen King's novels and the Weiss Kreuz anime. And allll the trashy parapsychology books I used to check out of the library in the early '00s... but let's ignore that. ;p

And all this reminds me of the first version of Yuriy's character, which was very different from what it is now.

A little more about that )
