Listening: am watching "The Blues Brothers" (the Nazis just jumped in the river)

Reading (perhaps quality): Just finished "Turtle Moon" by Alice Hoffman. Was okay - the dreamy way she writes suited my mood today.

Reading (definitely pulp): the pulpy in texture yet quality in writing Washington Post.

Drinking: extra extra strong coffee. Maybe too strong. Bleh.

School's already started again at Cal; I'm no longer the new person at work. Feel like I just got here, but it's been three months now.

It is already September? How the heck did that happen?

leaves! leaves! leaves!

Well, the phone's fixed. At first things didn't look good but it turned out to be a problem with the jack - some stripped copper wiring thing. All I know is now my phone is beautiful clear. It's amazing. And almost worth being trapped in the apartment yesterday.

Once the repairman left I ran in the shower, met up with Marie for dinner at a yummy woodgrill restaurant in Clarendon, and then went to go see "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". Good conversation and a very funny movie made for a great (though late) evening.

leaves! leaves! leaves!

SS the SS called yesterday - she's moving out here at the end of the week and needs a place to crash until she finds an apartment. I offered to let her stay once it became certain she was coming - with the one bedroom I have plenty of space and we're already used to sharing an apartment. Looking forward to her being in DC, glad to be able to help her get settled in the area.

leaves! leaves! leaves!

So nothing really new to report - all's well and nothing's really going on and after all the excitement at work lately I can't say I'm unhappy to have some peace. I hope this calm continues through the fall.

Knock on wood.

a m.   just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): Did laundry, beat the rugs, cleaned the bathroom, put up curtains, assorted other cleaning.

Doing (crafty stuff): Trying to teach myself to do a cable knit but it keeps turning out funky and tight. Need to figure out what I'm doing wrong...

Wanting: nothing right now.

Anticipating: SS the SS coming next week, putting together my furniture with Foster and Fabian, gathering D and whoever else is around for drinks and catching up, doing more work on the September 11th online exhibit for work.

last one everything else what I'm working on on to the dailies all (well some) about me back to the index page next one
