Daily Distractions

7/21

The big “project” that I’m working on in the office right now is to go over the Student Employment Guidelines with a fine-toothed comb, seeing as they have not been revised in quite a while, and the whole business model is changing for this fall – which I personally think is insane and will be a certifiable disaster, but that’s neither here nor there.

When you have a large proofing/revising project, I find that you need a good solid break every 20 minutes or so. The project simply isn’t enjoyable, interesting, or involved enough to really hunker down for longer than that.

This AM I chatted with Jen for a spell and told her about this new show on Bravo that I watched for a while last night. It was pretty funny. The woman was proven to be the most annoying in this relationship, and I anticipate that trend will continue for the foreseeable future.

I went over my pre-weekend list again, just in case I might’ve forgotten something, but alas: the party is “all systems go” at this point, and I have nothing left to do to prepare. Well maybe I could see if there are any more rooms available at the hotel…

But anyway, my phone got me up at 6 and 6:30 this morning, and then I finally got out of bed @ 6:45, and I made it to work by 7:47. I went to bed, though, at 10:15. I was actually planning on being awake a little longer to read, but I clunked out right away. When then, WHY couldn’t I just wake up after a solid 8? I just did NOT want to get out of bed. I’ve gotta figure something out with that, too.

While I was talking to Jen, I started thinking a little bit about buying a car again. I went on ebay and I found a dude from the UK who lives outside Atlanta and imports old Minis from England/Australia/New Zealand. Oh man, I wanna buy one. I don’t even know if you can get these things financed, like from a bank. I’m sure you could. It’s a car, for chrissakes. Yeah, still need to squeeze a few good months out of ol’ Willy for sure, though.

Later on, I’m gonna go with Siebers to see I, Robot. I gave him some Asimov to read a couple months back, he told me he was close to giving up on it. It *is* slow. As I recall, the payoff is at the end, though, so I hope he makes it through. I was close to going out by myself last night to see ‘Anchorman’ but then I realized I don’t have much in terms of disposable income, so…

I wonder if a 25-30 year old car would be easier (mechanically) to maintain? Like, maybe there would be things even I could figure out.

Best get back to the workin. After all, I’m gonna go to lunch in 20 minutes.
