I took today off work and am finding, as I did during galileo, that after so many consecutive days working, it's very difficult to sit still. the looming feeling that there's Something I Have To Do is very strong. this shapeless cloud of guilt is particularly unfun in combination with the fact that I'm still tired and don't really feel like, say, cleaning the house from top to bottom. although I do want the house to be clean from top to bottom. problems.
