Oh, it's Wednesday?


* Today I am feeling both "What do you mean it's only Wednesday?" and "Huh, it's Wednesday already?" I think the time-space continuum is doing odd things and giving me some sort of cosmic whiplash.

* The above might be resolved if I had time for a nap or even a full night of sleep, but since I don't, we won't be able to test this theory.

* The above also means that although my summer class just started last week, it is already 1/4 over, and after tonight's class it will be 1/3 over. qw21? I'd better get seriously working on all the assignments, not just the first one, because this is moving very quickly.

* I realized on Sunday that the next night I'd be home before 10 or 11 pm would be Friday. So I'm in the middle of that now, and really feeling it. I'm hanging on to the idea of an unexpectedly freeish weekend (family gathering was cancelled, but I still have to work on Saturday and do all that homework and clean for all those people I invited over to watch Doctor Who next week), no class on Monday, and no work on Tuesday.

* But why can't we decide when the darn holiday is? My school has it on Monday, work on Tuesday. If work had given us Monday off instead, I would have been able to go visit my parents or something. Not that I'm complaining about a random day off in the middle of the week, of course.

* My tea is very disappointingly milkless this morning because the milk in the fridge went bad weirdly quickly. I'm hoping that some new milk will magically appear sometime soon. (Yes, I'm using my blog to remind my roommate to buy milk. I know. I know. Sorry.)

* Do you think I had enough adverbs in the above item? But speaking of tea, I discovered Good Earth Original last night. Oh my GOODNESS. Try it. Really.

* Geek Alert: I've been convinced to give D&D another try (in my oh-so-abundant free time) and I've become rather intrigued by the kalashtar idea, and I have the Races of Eberron book sitting right here but I'm at work and so I can't read it. I am feeling very impatient.

* Knitting slump continues. I feel like I'd feel better if I were knitting more, but the idea of trying to fit it in to my schedule is stressful. Gah. I did work on Clapotis while watching a movie with a friend last night, so that's something. Maybe my goal for the weekend will be to finish a sock (for sanity) and actually take pictures so I stop boring you all to tears.

* I'm way, way too scattered. I'm making countless to do lists and then forgetting to reference them. I try to think of what recharging activities would be most helpful for an "ideal" free day, but my brain won't calm down enough to come up with anything. I can't believe it's already the end of June, but at least that means that August is sort of in sight. Things will calm down in August. Must hold on to that.

Ugh. That's a busy schedule! Is there anything I can do to help you get ready for Dr. Who Night? I have more time than I know what to do with.

You're getting into D&D? Leander and I have been talking about trying to get into it, but we didn't know anyone who might be interested. Can we join you when you get the time to play?

Sorry your schedule sounds like a drag. Here is a thought to cheer you up. I have been reading books simultaneously. Kind of like knitting multiple projects at once, I cannot seem to dedicate completely to one book. Review to come soon, I promise! And maybe I will see in Boston Knit-out and Crochet this year too!

Recharging *activities*? Maybe you should do nothing. I sat out in the backyard listening to the wind the other day, and it was so lovely. No striving, no completing, no perfectionist streak thwarted (again). Nothing much got done either, but that was kind of the point.

But condolences and awe on your schedule.

Good Earth Original is my tea from ages back. I love the stuff. It would be the only tea I'd give up coffee for.

Good Earth Original is the only tea I like. :) We have two Good Earth restaurants here, and it's their tea - I don't know if it's a local or national chain??

Oh, Good Earth tea is the best. Mmm. Now I want some.

A close second is ,if you have a Kahn's Mongolion BBQ wherever you are, try their ... um ... Cinnamon Cardamon I think it's called? A friend asked me what it tasted like, and I said "Christmas."
