I feel very content right now. It's been a sort of strange, fragmented day. I stayed up until four studying; slept for a couple of hours; went and took my exam; came home and slept until it was time to get up and go to work. Had a decent night at work, and then I went to the gym. I didn't work out; I just sat in the hot tub, and sometimes the pool, reading. It was a nice relaxing hour or so. Now I'm home, and in my pajamas, and ready to curl up and read for a while longer before going to sleep.

I'm also somewhat distracted by "Stigmata". The "on demand" section of my cable has a bunch of "scary" movies for free, and I was surprised to see "Stigmata" on there. I wouldn't classify it as scary, just suspenseful. Definitely not something that belongs on the same list as "Friday the 13th" and something called "Midnight Meat Train".

Every time I see this movie I want to read more about the phenomenon of stigmata. Although I'm not in the least religious, I am very curious about the mystical side of Catholicism. I guess it's the same reason I love The X-Files and reading about "cryptid" creatures, etc. I'm not sure why, but I've always believed in .... I don't know. Not the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot or anything specifically, but in the possibility of some funky shit out in there. :)

Anyway, with stigmata I don't really know where to start. I don't want to read some crazy religious "it's a gift from the LORD!!!11!!" type of book. I'd like to find an analytical look at it, but I don't know how to find such a thing.

I'll probably forget about it by tomorrow. I'm starting to feel sleepy, so I think I'll turn off the movie (as gorgeous as Gabriel Byrne is) and go snuggle up in my down comforter. :)
