Hey, it’s not been a week since I posted, yippee!!
“tis Friday and the slithy toves… ahem, backtrack, never mind. Yeah, my brain, she is broken for so many many reasons.
Work was rather fraught yesterday – just project overload catching up to me. I’m better now, but still a bit eep!
I did watch the Supernatural finale. No spoilers here, just a sense of well done, boys, damn well done.
beledibabe teased me with the flailing for the Ugly Betty season wrapper. This a.m., I was up early and the ep was there on iTunes. I had loads of time before I had to leave for work, so I watched – I joing in the general ::flail:: Holy crap, girlfriends!
My editor, the incomparable Paula Guran, has a fascinating discussion going about the biz of publishiing. Stop in and take her poll.
I go visit Yogita tomorrow – my fabulous hairdresser. My untamed shag will be once more tamed, and back to its former lovely self. The woman is a gem and I’m so glad to have her. My last fabulous hairdresser was when I was in San Antonio. I tried to convince Patty to come to DC, but alas, she would not.
The day is rather grey, drizzly and rather chilly – a reflectiion of my mood (well, sort of) – the whole last-day-of-work for my star developer. I’m in mourning. We’re taking him to lunch today and later, there will be pie. I’m as fond of pie as the next, but I’d rather it be for a more joyous occasion. I am very happy, though, that he’s not leaving altogether, at least not quite yet. He’s graciously offered to help us out on weekend days. I am so very grateful, because we’re in a huge crunch.
I’m still taking vacation as I’d planned, though part of me is racked with guilt and worry – as in a lot. I’ve talked to my backup Project Manager, who is another gem. He’s right – it doesn’t really matter when I schedule vacation, it’s never a good time. Sigh. I’m just hoping that by next Wednesday, my last day in the office until June 4, that my mood/outlook will have improved.
In any case, life does go on and these are petty, miserable concerns compared to things like what Elaine Viets just went through and is still going through. She’s home now, and in high spirits, but her recuperation will be long and tough. She’s an amazing woman and I’m so very glad she’s still with us.
Well, looks like another brain dump!
Hope everyone enjoys their Friday and subsequent weekend.
