If I blog it, I have to do it.

Bookish , I love lists! , Knitting , The halls of academia , Things I'm Doing , What housework?

I'm feeling vaguely out of it today, and have been for most of this week, actually. Part of it, certainly, is a need for just a bit more sleep than I have been getting. And I just have no focus. I don't know. Maybe it's because of spring. And actually being fairly happy sort of leaves me at loose ends. I can't decide whether I want to go run around crazily in the sunshine or take a road trip or hide under the covers and read obscure British novels. So. Um, anyway, where was I? Oh, lack of focus, right. I think I've made my point.

SO. Anyway. My plan for the evening is to go home, get some stuff done, RELAX a little, and SLEEP. Early. Theoretically. And because we've seen how scattered I am today, I'm going to put my to do list right here so that you all can harass me about it tomorrow. Okay? Okay.

1. Clean a bit. Honestly, my main point with this one is to find my copy of Last Minute Knitted Gifts and my missing Netflix envelope, but I'm planning to look for them in a way that makes the room look tidier rather than messier.

2. Finish translating Lauren's diploma. Yay Latin!

3. Block Branching Out.

4. E-mail my professor about my final paper topic.

5. Work on the Call for Submissions for the new online magazine I mentioned yesterday. (Thanks for all the enthusiasm about that! More details soon!)

6. (Finally) finish knitting the second ball of Dave's Scarf. I think it has entered the black hole phase - I've been knitting and knitting and nothing has been happening. At least if I finish a freaking ball of yarn I'll feel like I'm making some progress.

7. Start a grocery list. I'm out of hummus and pita. This can't be good.

8. Finish reading Knitting Rules and Bad Kitty.

Okay. That's totally doable for an evening, right? And theoretically it will result in pictures of a blocked Branching Out for you tomorrow.

If you need an extra netflix envelope, I can send you one. Or you can return two disks in the same envelope, which is what I tend to do and why I now have a pile of them.

BTW, by "evening" you mean from like 3 - 11 or something, right?

You don't have to do the diploma! I know how busy you are so just do it sometime if it's fun and you're bored.

That list was for one night?! Dang. Either it's very ambitious, or I'm the world's biggest slug!

I'm with Chris; I must be the bigger slug...if I get one or two items done on a list like that, I figure I'm doing really good!

That list includes relaxing and getting to sleep early? You must be a whirling dervish.

So, how did it go?

Oh, and I think you should take a road trip, pull over to run crazily in the sunshine (when you find it) sit on a park bench and read an obscure British novel (which one?) but maybe not under the covers. Not in the park.
