rainy caturday to-do’s

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

I have A Number Of Things I’d like to get done today. Luckily, I’m at the start of the chore week, which means I can do the easy stuff and still get the satisfaction of crossing something off the list. (Not really luck — totally on purpose, because if you can work with your brain’s […]

FYI: this is the series that ate last weekend (oops) and a not insignificant portion of this week (no great loss). But I thoroughly enjoyed it! (I also skipped all the way to the end *really* early on, just to check. Look, it’s important to me to know what I’m getting into before I get […]

workaday Wednesday

Last week someone told me that I sometimes “seem frustrated” at work. (They described this as “a bummer.”) They went on to explain that they had never worked in any customer service job. I mean, kudos to my past self for keeping it together. Even looking back on it I mostly just feel baffled. Yes, […]

A coworker introduced me to the Chrome extension Tabby Cat, and it has changed my work life for the better. Each time you open a new tab in chrome, it opens with a picture of a cat, instead of the ‘most visited sites’ tiles. Best part is they have adorable names, like ‘Teeny Casper’ and […]

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Naturally, after I watched the movie again, I had to go back and read what I’d written about it before. Many of my thoughts were the same the second time! But since I saw it in 2008, I did not know a Very Important Thing about the casting: Bruce Greenwood (the president of the US […]

Future’s Past, by darkseraphina This one reads like a completely enjoyable regency romance novel (absolutely intended to be a compliment, as someone who loves a good regency romance!). All of the Tragic Past pretty much wraps up after the first few chapters, and from then on it is all Enjoyable Correspondence and Strolling in the […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Back to work! That sure will be something. I’ve already done a quick check of my work emails — always a toss-up whether that’s a good idea or not. On the negative side, it tends to ramp up my stress about work things at a time when there’s nothing I can do about it. On […]
