The week didn’t start off well. When I got off work Monday I stopped by my apartment to pick up my laptop before going over to icespark’s to MUX. I parked in front of my building in the 10-minute spot, and put my flashers on while I ran upstairs. By the time I got back downstairs, my battery was dead and icespark had to come jump my car. I did have fun MUXing that night while icespark baked cookies, but I could certainly have done without the car stress.
Tuesday I brought icespark’s cookies to work for a holiday pitch-in, and they were quite a success. After work I’d discussed possible plans with Asca, but once again 10 PM was just too late. I wound up going over to lildomino’s to help her clean her house, since she did such a fantastic job helping me last Thursday. We were actually pretty productive Tuesday night – she cleaned and vacuumed her living room while I did dishes and folded laundry.
Wednesday I set aside as a correspondece night to try to catch up on my backlog of emails and letters. Of course, being me, I procrastinated until late into the night, partially because I was in a really foul mood for no readily apparent reason. I did get a chance to finally read Fray, which was pretty cool and helped improve my mood, but as is often the case, by the time I actually got around to doing what I’d decided to do, it was time to go to sleep.
Thursday afternoon before work I met lildomino at her lab because they were having a holiday pitch-in, and I got to eat and have some of lildomino’s yummy desert before going to work. Taking another plate with me, I went from her lab to my office. After work I went over to lildomino’s after a quick stop at icespark’s for a kiss and to pick up my phone charger. Tuesday was lildomino’s productivity night with me – last night we just ate, snuggled, and watched Robot Chicken and Star Trek.
Tonight after work I’m celebrating Yule with icespark, and then after midnight I’m picking lemur_lady up at the airport so she can spend the night. I get to hang out with her on Saturday before bringing her to Bloomington. When I get back I’m hanging out with Jen, who’s in Indiana to visit her family for the holidays. My Sunday plans depend on Juho – if she’s free, I might go see her in Valpo; if not, icespark and I’ll prolly go see National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
Either way, it should be a good weekend, and just what I need to get over my unexplained December blahs. Happy Yule, everyone!
