Time Event
7:35p
"Somebody leave the light on, just in - just in case I like the dancing..."
Dude, Eric e-mailed me and Alyssa (2:50pm):
Subject: Leaving for the day
Won’t be in tomorrow.  Have a good weekend.  See you Sat.
Aww, my sweet gay notboyfriend.  (Why do I have so many of those, btw?)  Am really pleased he's still planning to go to Alyssa's party Saturday night, despite his sinus infection and giant move.

Oh and P.S., we're working on scheduling some time to all go out for drinks after work.  Alyssa sent out the initial e-mail, though I soon got put in charge of keeping track of everyone's schedules (spreadsheet!) since I'm less busy than Cailin and Alyssa.  from the e-mail exchangesCollapse )

Um, not sure what happened with CAUMC tonight.  Trelawney sent an e-mail yesterday saying (in part), "also, the young adult small group meeting continues this thursday at 7 [...]" but I got there about five minutes of seven and no one was in the office or anything.  Guess I'll be watching CSI in real time after all.  Edit (7:44pm): Mike just called. Apparently some family stuff came up with Trelawney and the e-mail didn't go through the server (no idea why there wasn't anyone in the church office, though). So that's solved. (Though it turns out that he and Meredith are spending this weekend at a long-planned Tufts event, so I'm now a bit more concerned that no one will come tomorrow and I will have to eat an entire fruit trifle myself.) /edit

Nicole successfully petitioned to be able to work from home tomorrow, citing Winter Weather Advisories with words like "Arctic" and "frostbite."  "Why do people settle here?" she, the O.C. transplant, asked me (rhetorically?).

My mother e-mailed me:
Subject: just sayin'

THESE BITTER COLD TEMPERATURES WILL COMBINE WITH SUSTAINED NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH TO PRODUCE BELOW ZERO WIND CHILLS. WIND CHILLS WILL DROP TO BETWEEN 5 AND 15 BELOW ZERO LATE TONIGHT...AND REMAIN BELOW ZERO ON FRIDAY.

EXPOSED SKIN CAN SUFFER FROM FROSTBITE IN A VERY SHORT TIME UNDER THESE COLD CONDITIONS...SO DRESS ADEQUATELY IF VENTURING OUTDOORS. BE SURE TO WEAR LAYERED CLOTHING...AND WEAR A HAT AND MITTENS OR GLOVES TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE DANGERS OF FROSTBITE. PROLONGED EXPOSURE COULD ALSO LEAD TO THE MORE SERIOUS CONDITION OF HYPOTHERMIA.

Edit: Some moments are just winning. NewRoomie had been soaking a pickle jar and picking it up said to me, "Can I put this in the recycling like this?"
me (trying to not sound too excited): "Yeah."
her: "I don't need to take off the label?"
me: "Naw."

"i can remember where i come from"
Okay, I made fruit trifle and am calming. I misplaced my recipe book from my mom (just found it) in the disaster that is my room, but the beauty of fruit trifle is how hard it is to mess up: you're combining a whole bunch of yummy items which taste yummy together. I always manage to burn some of the pudding mix, and it never seems to matter. And I've made it frequently enough recently that I do in fact remember the ingredients (something I'd honestly forgotten the first time I went to make it on my own).

AmyFox has requested that people read her children's books* via phonepost. I endorse this and was going to do The Goodnight Circle by Carolyn Lesser before I left for CAUMC (The Blue Faience Hippopotamus is tragically out of print and I don't have my own copy, so that's only an option when I'm at the parentals'), but LJPhone told me "all circuits are busy," and I just tried again and it said the same thing. What up?
*her exact phrase was "their favorite picture books," though I'm not sure what exactly gets classified as a "picture book;" I suspect my two choices are slightly wordy.

I should head to bed soon -- but I think I still need to be slightly calmer.
