1. My parents showed up unexpectedly at Kripalu right as I went on my 15-minute break, and, as a result, I got to have dinner!
2. HIRA!!! Hira showed up at Kripalu today for the weekend!! YAY to former resident / coworker gleee, and great hugs.
3. Unexpected invitation to Halloween party by Libby after work, which resulted in sage and fennel tea at her place while we waited for her roommate. Good tea. And a friend!
4. Party. DANCING! PEOPLE! Going out and doing something on a Friday night! And we left early, yay, so wasn't even all that tired :) And now I know there are young people who work at Kripalu and who get together and do things like dance and party, and will make plans to insinuate myself in this cool group so that I receive future head's-ups on events. *clings to human contact*
5. The Television Without Pity recap of "Home". I died laughing so very much.
Forrest tells Quantum to take some time to cool off. "With all due respect, Admiral --" Which, as we all know, means the exact opposite. "I don't need a vacation." No, you're right -- you don't need a vacation, you need a polectomy. And a furrowectomy. And a personality replacement. In fact, you need an entire weekend at Dr. Cheney's Day Spa for the Intensely Humorless and Criminally Uptight.
Also, T'Pol? I love you. Really, I find you precious. But the CRACK WHORE jokes never get old. This recap is making me happy hours afterwards.
(I haven't seen this week's Enterprise yet, but it is taped for future viewing! Which is also gleee.)
3 things I did well:
1. Rode out stress of being asked to multi-task when very understaffed at work and stayed cool and focused :)
2. Accepted unexpected party invitation! *places new tick mark on list of Milestones To Getting Over Being Sick*
3. Er... my register was only off by 5 cents (out of > $3500 net sales...)
In other non-news, I am having the unusual urge to locate an unlined journal and coloured pencils. I am rather addicted to this online journaling business where I receive
I think if I *structure* it with writing exercises or clear headings I can avoid getting depressed, which has happened in the past when I kept a journal without the check of letting other people see it. Plus, there are geeky math-y diagrams and graphs I want to write about my latest theories on The Way Human Beings Work In The World, and it might be nice to create something to facilitate my future ability to look back on myself at this age and mock. (It really is mostly about the coloured pencils.)
I could also do a more scrapbook-y thing like cat_b and I used to do when we were kids (and we called them "ibooks", which is now copyrighted -- and corny -- so I can't do THAT anymore), because looking back on the one I made back then is so freaking cool. It's such a clear indication of what I was into then, and who my friends were. (The coolest part of those projects was that I asked my friends to each make a page for me to put in the book.)
Of course, then I would want to show it to people.
