final Monday of 2014

Monday, December 29th, 2014

Here it is, the last Monday of the year, and one final animal to go with it! The Dik-dik is a tiny antelope — they can run up to 26 mph and also whistle! (Though possibly not at the same time.) [photo credit Pedro Gonnet, via wikipedia]

what even

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

So, apparently it’s Sunday. I am not entirely sure how this happened. I’m sure we were supposed to be having a four-day weekend, and somehow it feels like it has been only about 12 hours or so. And yet — Sunday! Which means I am now at that tricky point of trying to figure out […]

who needs sleep?

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

It’s that time of year again — Yuletide is back! A few fics recs as of now: 1. Qualifications (Ghostbusters) “My mother once dreamed that a terrible calamity was going to happen. And then, the very next day, Perry Mason was cancelled.” 2. If you don’t like it you can lump it (Young Avengers, Hawkeye) […]

movie review: Maleficent

Friday, December 26th, 2014

I’ve been meaning to watch it, and finally remembered I had the dvd from Netflix. (My dad watched it first; he said it was sad, so I didn’t want to watch it right *before* Christmas just in case.) I actually didn’t think it was sad? But I had some knowledge of what was going to […]

more notes from Christmas Eve @ work

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

So far it’s been quiet. Just enough work to keep us from being sent home early, is the verdict so far. Now I’m on lunch. Usually I eat lunch at four, so 11:30 is a bit of a change. Not having any trouble scarfing down my pasta, though! I did manage to find the time […]

Christmas Eve @ work

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Left work at 8:30 last night, supposed to be here at 8 am this morning. Totally miscalculated how much time it would take to get here at 7 am versus 11 am; arrived embarrassingly early at 7:30 am. Plus side: plenty of parking available!

short week work notes

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Everyone keeps optimistically saying things should quiet down this week. So far no such luck. People keep leaving for vacation, which means that although the total work load is less, it’s distributed over fewer and fewer people. (On the plus side, the free food that keep showing up is also distributed among fewer and fewer […]
