lunchtime update

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

1. I am so glad it’s a hot day, because that was the perfect excuse for eating my soup cold (it’s leftover soup). Honestly, it probably would have tasted better hot. (But this way I have fewer dishes to wash!) 2. So far today I have: rearranged some furniture, considered (and then reconsidered) hanging up […]

positive life choices

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Breakfast time! Wearing pajamas, eating chocolate chip pancakes, listening to ‘brunch by the River’ on the radio. This day: so far, so good.

six page day

Friday, August 29th, 2014

At work, I make notes of each call/email/task that I do during the day — usually just ‘call-person’s name-something identifying.’ (First, because this is super helpful in remembering their name, and using the caller’s name is actually something we’re graded on during call monitoring. Second, because it is helpful to be able to look back […]

fic post!

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

I posted a fic in April, and then there was May, which I’m pretty sure I took off from writing since I was trying to figure out how to do my new job. Then I started this fic in June, but dropped it in July (okay, and most of August) while I tried to figure […]

some thoughts should stay unspoken

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

But this one I’m going to write online, so I guess it’s not really in that category. Ever since I was hired at my current job, there has been talk of switching my schedule to 12-8:30 pm. It’s the schedule I was hired for, but for a variety of reasons it hasn’t materialized as of […]

last A-Monday of the year

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Apparently, there is an animal called the Agouti. It seems that “Agouti” can refer to a variety of South American rodents (thanks, wikipedia!), but since you could legitimately say, “Hey look, an agouti!” I figure it counts. Plus, the general term agouti DOES include an animal called the acouchi (not even kiding), which is just […]

apartment life update

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

It makes good sense to have an air mattress instead of a traditional (read: heavy) one when you live on the second floor and don’t love carrying heavy things up and down stairs. And so part of the moving process was researching air mattresses and whether or not they can be used as one’s primary […]

caturday, and my fingers are crossed

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Today is take two of the “let’s acclimate the cat to two houses; that’s an awesome plan” plan. (Last weekend he stayed at the apartment, since it seemed unwise to add him to the mix when there was a brand new dog at the house at the time.) I thought about having him stay home […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Okay, fair warning: this story ATE my evening last night. I’m pretty sure I started out with plans other than ‘read this fic till bedtime,’ but those plans did not happen. Bargaining, by proantagonist I laughed, I cried, I was satisfied with the ending. But yeah, heavy stuff.


Thursday, August 21st, 2014

My workplace is doing one of those six-week fitness challenges. and we have finally reached week six. For all my good intentions, I also seem to have reached the point where my knee-jerk reaction to thinking about the challenge is ‘you can’t make me!’ Last night I planned to take 20 minutes in the evening […]
