Tomorrow is Friday.

~8hrs sleep.  Of course I woke up tired, but that's okay.

UnitHead: "Good afternoon."
Me: "Hello."
Him: "What?"
Me: "I said hello."
Him: "Oh, I thought you said 'kind of.'"
Me: "No, it's a perfectly fine afternoon."

The day was blessedly calm (slow).  I did the stuff for Prof.D. that I'd I'd back-burnered and didn't have any real issues with stuff for Prof.B. There were also learning experiences (low-stress ones).

I've been having good conversations with Lorraine (and others) about what (single thing) would you change in your canons of choice and feedbacking.

I've watched other conversations and been relatively calm in my non-engagement.

I read fanfic and sent some feedback and drafted feedback for others.

Tonight is CSI and Without a Trace reruns I haven't seen.  *cringes at the thought of how many episode writeups she has backlogged* [Edit: tvguide.com/listings totally lied. CSI is new -- as one would have suspected given it got on the TVGuide print version Hot List. Edit2: The episode that aired totally wasn't the Hot List episode, though. Also: My mom says her Yahoo! tv listings described the episode that actually aired. Edit3: Without a Trace was in fact the episode I suspected it might have been, and thus I have seen it -- and can go to bed earlier.]

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Emergence
-Robert Francis

If you have watched a moulting mantis
With exquisite precision and no less
Exquisite patience, extricate itself
Leaf-green and like a green leaf clinging
Little by little, leg by leg
Out of its chitin shell, you likewise know
How one day coaxes itself out of another
Slowly, slowly by imperceptible degrees
Of gray, and having fully emerged, pauses
To dry its wings.
