Something went horribly wrong with the fonts in my last post, and for the life of me I can't fix them. So, sorry about your eyes, dear friends' list!

Awoke at 10:00 and couldn't get back to sleep. Three hours of sleep is enough, right? *sigh* I'm really not sure what's going on with me lately. I suppose if it continues for longer than this I'll have to go see my doctor. I'm not keen on the thought of chemically induced sleep right now, but she mentioned melatonin during my last appointment, so maybe I'll ask about that. The kind of work I do can't be accomplished if I don't get enough sleep. Actually, very few jobs can be completed properly without sleep, not just mine.

Otherwise, things have been quiet since yesterday. Not much happened at work, so I alternated between Romanian lessons on Duolingo and Twitter, and when my concentration ran out for Duolingo I switched to a re-watch of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It's better and worse than I remembered. It first aired when I was 14 (!), so a lot of the political nuance was lost on me at the time, and I'm finding it more interesting now. Now that I know what shipping is, too, I'm very much enjoying the interactions between Garak and Bashir, which are so homoerotic they may as well be banging on-screen. ;) That being said, there's a lot of misogyny that I'd either forgotten or never noticed. In one instance, during a disagreement, Sisko grabs Nerys by the arm and literally hauls her around in order to corner her. I mean, what?!? In what universe would Starfleet Academy not drill into their officers' heads that you should never, ever put your hands on a colleague? Or anyone else except in self-defence, for that matter?

Anyway, I'm told it gets better with time, and I do seem to recall that the first season was a series of stand-alones, some of which were pretty cringeworthy. So I'll stick it out, if only to see the new-to-me Garak/Bashir ship, and to rediscover all the badass ladies of DS9.

Now I have to take my sleep-deprived self up to a shower, and then to work. To say that I don't feel like going would be an understatement.
