"I'd be lyin' if I said I didn't have designs on you."

So, at the beginning of Bible study last night (7pm) I was feeling tired.  I came home, did LJ writeups, signed on to AIM at some point during that, and around 11pm was ready for bed but was taking care of some stuff I'd kept forgetting when Joe IMed me.  I'd e-mailed him on Saturday, not having talked to him in ages, so obviously I jumped at his IM.

I did 15+min in the weight room this morning.  I had raisin bran before I left the house, but after the gym I went after a yogurt parfait.  They only had pineapple, so I got yogurt, granola, and grapes off the salad bar.

I can't multi-task quite like some people I know, so it actually makes me work less efficiently, but it does make me happy that/when my work boyfriend IMs me in the mornings while I'm at work and he's still at home.

Heh, this morning's metro -- from "The Buzz" by Jeff Howe:
The Patriots have a week off until their next game, when they play the Giants next Sunday at 6 p.m. How's that for not buying into the hype?

This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
-Psalm 118:24

Five good things about today:
1. Yummy breakfast food.  (Possibly overpriced, but.)
2. Repeated conversations/allusions about tying people up.
3. Nicki invited me to hang out in Davis Square tomorrow night with a friend of hers (she'd also invited Katie).  I'm previously committed to taking my mom to Symphony (for her birthday, which is Sunday, though I would have taken her regardless), but I was v. pleased to have been invited (and totally would have gone, had I been free).
4. I actually got lots of the stuff I needed from Prof.B. (signatures and answers and check-writing).
5. A possible breakthrough of sorts in a particular relationship.

Three things I did well today:
1. Working on scheduling (Aleta in Faculty Administration had her baby three weeks early, so Rae's swamped, so since I'd already been helping with this one visit I obviously stepped up and am doing more).
2. I was proactive in getting a few minutes of Prof.B's time so I could actually take care of the growing stack of stuff on my desk.
3. Made efforts to make myself understood in a particular interaction.

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
1. Symphony concert with my mom.
2. Getting more work done.
