There were whole hours yesterday wherein I forgot I was sick. Today I was mostly just congested. And hey, Kieran never got back to me about plans, so I get to go to bed early again. (I realize I have turned into a person who doesn't respond to messages in a timely fashion -- though I am usually wicked prompt in responding to stuff about actual plans -- but I caught up on a whole bunch today, which I feel really good about.)
I went to bed ~10:30 last night. My dreams this morning were clearly influenced by events of the day. Dreams included some comfort/reconciliation -- because my brain loves me and wants me to be happy -- and also my brother being a (still more conservative than I) Lutheran.( gymCollapse )
On my way from the gym to the office, I saw Scott heading toward me, and we waved and then we hugged and we actually went around in I think a full 360. (Hi, Amy, I thought of you
Proving that he had read my email (he has RSI, so I'm usually more surprised to get an email from him than not)
, he said, "You need my cell phone number, and you need mine."
He also said he didn't know if he had shared his GoogleCalendar with me. (Cate, are you proud? Sidebar: When we were scheduling for the weekend his girlfriend was in town, I said that the purple was my calendar, so he could ignore the blue, and he was like, "Oh, too bad, that looks like a fun calendar -- Date Night ... BOOTIE Boston...")
"Oh, and I was supposed to invite you to Simchat Torah." ♥ I got an email yesterday afternoon from the Temple Shalom Medford young adult listserv, so I knew what he was talking about, and I also knew that I had a conflict -- Salvadorian dinner
+ walk around Jamaica Pond with Carolyn.
I said, "Oh, so that's what GoogleCalendar calls Rejoicing of the Torah." We talked some more about religious holidays on GoogleCalendar, and I actually looked up Creation on October 23
(true story the Wiki entry was the first Google hit for october 23 creation
) and Reformation Day
Then he went and met with a prof and then came back and talked to me more (about NCOD
, among other things) and then hugged me before he left. \o/
After work, I was at CVS, and the Seasonal section of the greeting cards section included Pastor. I have no idea why. There were 7 -- 4 used male language for God, 1 assumed a male pastor, 2 were neutral. There were also 3 Rosh Hashana cards -- 1 "to both of you," 1 "from both of us," and 1 generic (which actually read from left to right).
My Barnes&Noble order came today. As did a notice from Payroll: "The Payroll Office has been notified by the Cash Management Department of Financial Systems that the following check(s) made payable to [my name] have not been cashed. [Check Amount: $744.81, Check Date: 2/3/06] As payroll checks are non-negotiable after six months, we have enclosed a replacement check(2) for you." That date is right after I got hired fo'real (after being a long-term temp), so my guess is that it got lost in the direct-deposit shuffle.
