Randoms? Actually on Wednesday?


Will wonders never cease? Hmm.

First a quick summary: Work is stressful. School is fun but stressful. Social things are fun but stressful. Going away this weekend, which will be very fun, but is currently stressful in preparation.

And OH. Attention Cate. And other Doctor Who fans, but Cate is the one who implied that I'd be in for a serious guilt-trip if anyone missed anything. In case we weren't all aware, Doctor Who Series Two (Tenth Doctor) starts on Friday, September 29. Details here.

Knitting? What knitting? Actually, I am almost done with the green baby blanket, finally, so that's something. Not feeling terribly inspired on the knitting front these days, though. Suggestions on ways to get out of the slump? I'm feeling like I seriously need to knit, but just... can't be bothered. Or something. Help?

I was in a reading slump too, but then I started Snow Blind by PJ Tracy. I've loved all her (their, actually) other books, and I'm about 100 pages into this one and not disappointed. And hey, it has snow, so it's even better. (No, I don't want to discuss the fact that it's due back at the library tomorrow. Maybe no one else has requested it and I'll be able to renew. Right. That'll happen.)

My closest friend at work is leaving. Today is his last day. I'm trying not to think about it.

Also, I realized earlier today that I'm really, really angry about a work thing. I'd known I was annoyed, but no, apparently I'm pretty close to furious. It's nothing I can actually affect or change, but at least now I've recognized how I'm feeling, so that must be somehow helpful, right?

Inhale. Outhale. Inhale. Outhale.

In better news, fall TV is coming. Yay. Teddy TiVo has big plans. Now if I only had time to watch all these shows.

Despite all the above, I am getting very excited about NaNoWriMo. Yeah. LIke I have time for that. It's such a... big thing now, though. I don't know. Sort of like knitting blogs, actually. Hmm. Maybe a more coherent post about that, um, sometime.

I am feeling smugly well-prepared for class tonight. My written assignment and my reading were both done by Monday night, the required handouts are printed, and I don't even have anything I have to do on campus before class. Now if the T could be sane and reasonable for once, it might be a fairly okay evening.

Thirteen days until new Veronica Mars. Just in case anyone was wondering.

What do I want to pick up for dinner? Hmmm. Other than ridiculous amounts of caffeine?

Don't forget that the VM premiere will be on-line for viewing on the 26th! Only 6 days from now! yippee!! Not sure of an exact URL, but it will be on MSN.

A Thousand Blessings upon our Tivos! I found out about the new Doctor Who's airing when I looked at my "To Do" in the Tivo and said, "Why is it going to record Doctor Who again?"

Looking forward to Veronica Mars, too - I wonder if she's going to get on the plane without Dad and go to New York?

Breath in, breath out. I've loved all the PJ Tracy books so far - I'm on the list for Snow Blind. I was a slug a month or two ago and didn't go out to a free reading of theirs...

Hope the work situation straightens out.

Good luck making things better at work.

And thanks so much for the Veronica Mars reminder--can't wait for the new season!

Thank you, thank you! I just discovered from your link to the pjtracy site that I'm 2 books behind! "Dead Run" is winging its way to my local library for me even as I type (well, not actually, but the request is in). Their books are such fun.

Thanks for the Doctor update. I count on you to be the oracle of all things Whovian.

TiVo and I aren't speaking right now. Despite it being #1 on the subscription list, despite my phone line being hooked up and my directory fully loaded, despite my satellite being perfectly functional, it just decided not to TiVo survivor last night. Can you believe that? I tried to call DirecTV to say WTF, but hung up after 20 minutes on hold. Dagnabbit. Anyway. Studio 60 looks good, huh? At least it recorded that one.

I'm sorry! You probably don't want him around right now-he has a dreadful cold. Though I am rather hoping that he'll give it the the DM.
