x_los: (What the fuck movie is this even from?)
So in an attempt to pacify the sleep-dep, I went to bed /right/ after dinner, only to wake up at 3:30 am for no reason. Still tired? Yes. Unable to get back to bed? Well, it's 4:37am and I'm trolling livejournal, so survey says? And not only that, but my weird floating bad mood of the entire day has somehow crystalized during sleep into the vicious nastiness only really achieved but an hour in which no one's awake to distract you from it or make you achieve some perspective. Eugh. I have /got/ to rationalize this sleep schedule.

To that end: There's apparently this big boat party all Friday on the Red Sea with ocean-tubing for the volunteers, to celebrate the close of the harvest (or just about--appropriate, as we're in Sukkot). And then I OFFICIALLY never have to work at the packing house again--I've been promised that before, but now I'm v. 'you can't take the sky from me' about it, and will bite ankles if they backslide with their 'just ooooone more week' nonsense.

I'm rather bored with this kibbutz, and kind of want to change to see if some other is less meh. Not that I've had any glam illusions shattered, I just don't know that it's a v. good fit. Juan the Volunteer Leader was already telling us all that 'with harvest done, we need fewer volunteers now. Anyone want to jump ship? I'll arrange that for you.' And seeing as I'm nearly at my two month mark for this one already *shrug.* More kibbutzim=more to write about, and getting it done for me rather than having to pay the KPC some weird new registration fee (working oversees is like Monopoly--'wait, fuck I was supposed to pay into a community chest? Er, here then. AND rent on that? Okay, well, whatever. Wait i'm in jail now--well, shit. Roll 'American Embassy' to get out...')? Fine by me.

The downside being that this woefully now-unsocialized Kibbutz pays pretty decently (I end up having like 400$ American each month in excess of what I spend on/what I'm just given in terms of food/room/utilities/work clothes/laundry service/etc., and if I spend 50$ or 100$ on sundries/food above and beyond the cafeteria, that's still not bad). I really should stay on another month or two to shore up funds for traveling, etc. Maybe the KPC or Juan would know where else pays a commensurate ammount?

In other news, if offered a nice living sittuation with William Carlos Williams, say


Forgive me
But no fucking way.


Things I've read/listened to since trip beginning:

...

4. BFA 50 Zagreus
5. Emma
6. Tale of Two Cities
7. Persuasion
8. Letters of Two Brides
9. The Scarlet Pimpernel
10. The Time Traveller's Wife
11. BFA 16 Storm Warning
12. BFA 17 Sword of Orion
13. BFA 18 The Stones of Venice
14. BFA 19 Minuet in Hell
15. BFA 28 Invaders from Mars
16. BFA 29 The Chimes of Midnight
17. BFA 30 Seasons of Fear
18. BFA 31 Embrace the Darkness
19. BFA 32 The Time of the Daleks
20. BFA 33 Neverland

Currently Unfinished: relistening to Zagreus, now with 100% more context, still haven't polished Shadowland off, or those last twenty pages of Passage to India.

*EDIT* UM, entirely without prompting or warning, letter from my baby brother (well, I say that, but he's 10 now) Sam:
" you are loved dearly for ever
and know mater how far away you
may be you will always be in my heart
forever love, sam "

:3 Was I supposed to be in a crap mood or something? Typos and all, that--that is really sweet.
