"hour follows hour like water in a river"

I was definitely not as productive this weekend as I had hoped to be -- I didn't even get caught up on LJ comments -- but I slept a lot, which was awesome.

I feel off-kilter or un-centered or something, and I'm not entirely sure how to remedy it.  Doing some sort of daily devotional for Advent sounds like a good idea. (Anyone have any suggestions?)  "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light.  And they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined." -Isaiah 9:2 (Handel's Messiah)

This is two weeks in a row I haven't reviewed for ASL class.  *fail*  I haven't done any Extension School class reading either, but that's more expected.

Walking to ASL class tonight the traffic (on Cambridge Street especially) kept making me nervous.  I suspect largely because I'd seen a car get rear-ended on my way in to work this morning.

I felt... overwhelmed is an excessive term... but not entirely on my game at work today.  Partly because of the holiday -- meant I was starting one day closer to everything I had to get taken care of (like the schedule for Wednesday's visiting speaker).  I'm looking forward to the upcoming additional time off, though I'm not sure how much it'll actually help.  I have so much I want to do but difficulty focusing.

Good things about today included Ian entertaining me.  A lot.

I don't do Starbucks, but what exactly would be the correct way to order a: decaf venti sugar free extra hot gingerbread latte with whole milk.  Anyone know?  (Yeah, I'm Research Girl even when I have no personal stake in the answer.)

I want to swap out my current Smith College icon for an Ainsley Hayes icon, possibly with a quote from "17 People."  I don't know where to get such a thing, though.  I checked tww_icons and they don't have tags (understandable) and the most recent pages focus on the later seasons (also understandable).

I am considering using the CJ "I'm great in bed" icon here to replace my "...and no whore jokes" Morena icon.

From the flist:

You are the _____ to my _______. It works like this: Basically, comment telling me that I am the (SOMETHING) to your (SOMETHING).

It was couched as character names, which I enjoy, but I didn't like their options, so I offer: the Ainsley Hayes to my Sam Seaborn, the Hermione Granger to my Ron Weasley, the Ted Mosby to my Robin Scherbatsky.  I've also seen inanimate object combinations, which I support as well.
