i do it for the joy it brings

Life is good.

Cancer Horoscope for week of November 21, 2002

St. Rose of Lima (1586-1617) was so determined not to be lead into sin by her pretty face that she disfigured it with lye and pepper. Though you've never gone that far, Cancerian, you too have hidden or wounded your own beauty. You too have been afraid to reveal the raw majesty of your real self. Please don't do that any more. Reject the pathological notion that undervaluing yourself can serve any good at all. To seal your commitment, I urge you to make Rose of Lima your anti-patron saint.

stumbledhere and company on Saturday. I got taken out to lunch, and apparently i was helpful. Go me.

Buffy with trijinx and sarrin on Sunday. Yay for that, and then Rena and i hung out and babbled about everything for an obscene amount of time, so that was good, too.

LBTA training on Sunday was good, and i’ve been touching base with more people, which is always good. (tranceballerina, of course i missed you, silly girl. I hadn’t realized you were moving to Florida so soon. Hope all is going well.)

Today in the mail i got this year’s interterm catalog, this year’s Smith directory, and my NaNoWriMo t-shirt (mine’s the “No plot? No problem!” one, ladies jersey). All the interterm stuff that i would be interested in taking is conveniently offered the last couple weeks.
Prison Industrial Complex Through Film January 13-17, 9:30-11:30am
Do Dung Beetles Have Moral Rights? Topics in Environmental Ethics January 20-24, 9:30-11:30am
Vegetarian Cooking on a Shoestring January 20-24, 3:15-5:15pm
There’s also a conference (“Homeland Insecurity: Civil Liberties, Repression and Citizenship in the 1950s”) January 23-26 which might be interesting.

Am irked that Petra’s Buffy class didn’t get approved.

I also hear rumors of someone having a massive J-term party. *makes hopeful face*
you think you know...

This is something of a filler entry. I think i'm going to bed soon.

According to Joe, it is going to snow all day on Wednesday, really picking up around 2. My plan is to take the 9:20 bus out of Northampton, which gets me in to South Station at 12:20, and then get the 12:45 train to my home. If the snow delays my bus, the next train home is 2:45. This is why i bring lots of books.

I was realizing tonight that December isn’t quite as insane as i had thought it was going to be. Though i still have to be careful to stay on top of all my work. It’s so easy to underestimate the difficulty of the work and then put it off.

Have been essentially on break since Friday evening. Is weird to have work i should be doing instead of work i have to be doing. So of course i haven’t done any work. Bad me. *shrug*

I heard Angel is in reruns until January. And now i hear it is moving to Wednesday nights. Because my weeks aren’t busy enough. Thanks.
