[Finally catching up on all of my feeds... didja notice?]
"Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then."
"Never wear anything that panics the cat."
P. J. O'Rourke
"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."
"The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook."

This past weekend was a very good one. Much needed talking about things and stuff occurfed. Staying up way too late also happened. My computer is now all back together and happy (though not quiet -- silly CPU fan). A friend had a birthday brunch. We also saw Ice Age 2 (on the big TV, as Sarawould say). Monday was a half day of work (to take Jonah to his doctor's appointment with the other half). Today involved driving in rush hour traffic (which I don't usually due because I work from home). Today was allergy shots too. Tonight was an Arisia meeting. The rest of the week should be relatively uneventful and then on Saturday, I get a massage!
I'm pretty behind in my blog reading. On :LJ:, I made a new, small filter of people to catch up on and skimmed that and bookmarked posts I want to go back and read when I'm not falling asleep. That was still ~225 posts in ~3 days. Oy!
I have to look into flights to CA soon. That popped up on my reminder list.
Let's not talk about the other things languishing on my to do list, including writing to those wonderful people in Colorado who I miss so very much but suck about writing to. :(
I really want to find a local place that sells OPI nail polish. I guess I can give in and try to order it online though. (In Colorado, there was a great store that sold all kinds of makeup and nail polish, etc.)
[Update: neat color changing polish that changes in the sun - yay, Google ads!]
And now it's almost midnight and I'm not in bed yet. Silly!
Wil's coming to the Boston area to do a book signing. He's a very charismatic speaker. Wonder if my getting lost skills would allow me to get there (TBD still) while the book signing was still happening. :)
(I met Wil at Gnomedex a couple of years ago. He played poker with :Dave: and :Brad:.)
