"through cloud and sunshine, oh abide with me"

Yesterday, Matt from TSS walked by while we were having lunch outside.  MaryAlice asked how he was doing and he said, "Abiding."  MaryAlice said something about The Big Lebowski afterward, and I realized the reference, but my immediate reaction had been to start singing "Abide With Me" in my head.  (It's the closing hymn at Rest and Bread every Wednesday evening.)

I did ~35min in the weight room.

I seriously considered wearing jeans today (and every other FA on my floor actually did) but decided not to, in large part because I didn't want to deal with soggy jeans.  Walking outside after work today I think totally validated my choice.  (I picked up some groceries at Porter and actually took the bus home from Davis, but even just walking from HBS to the T was enough to make me glad I was wearing loose dress pants rather than snug jeans.)  I did wear my stilleto ankle boots.  (I really need to get new ankle boots.  I am hard on my footwear, so I purged most all of my old boots, but chunk-heeled ankle boots are my favorite footwear.)

One great thing about our entryway is having an out of the way space to put your umbrella to dry.

Yeah, my life is really that exciting.  I am really excited about sleeping tonight.  Though first is the debate (9pm Eastern -- yay streaming video on CSPAN Edit: or not -- wtf? okay, I guess I'll livestream CNN /edit).  Tomorrow I need to make myself do basically all of my readings for my classes and not just catch up on tv and LJ posting.  (I was actually thinking earlier this week that the block of time between churches on Sunday would be a really good time for me to catch up on my tv.)

From the People article on Clay Aiken [via Feministing]:
Following the Aug. 8 birth of his son Parker, singer Clay Aiken is following through on a promise he made to himself as a new dad: to publicly acknowledge that he's gay.

"It was the first decision I made as a father," Aiken, 29, tells the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. "I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that."
