V!A e-mailed RMK on Friday saying, "Before leaving today, Elizabeth asked if she could leave next Friday, Sept. 30 at 4:30 p.m. to make a public transportation connection for a weekend trip. She said she would shorten her lunch to make up the time." I saw RMK's reply this morning: "YES, OF COURSE" [Admittedly she was replying to an assortment of stuff in caps to make it stand out from the paragraphs of stuff to which she was replying, but the statement is much appreciated regardless.] This relieved me tremendously. And gave me considerably more faith that I would actually make it through this week.
Dunno if it was just because RMK was out of the office all day or what, but while Friday seemed nonstop, today felt positively slow. I'm still somewhat anxious about tomorrow, but I think I'll be okay. And I'm trying not to stress myself out about how I could have done this afternoon's phone interview better.
And on the way home it started raining (lightly) and I was happy.
And I caught the end of "Sideshow Bob Roberts" (scroll here) ♥
Oh, and I may end up having to read Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys after all. Trickster narratives are not my cuppa, so I was all prepared to give this particular one a pass, but then musesfool wrote: "what I really, really liked about this book is that it's about stories, and how they get told, and what they mean, and how they can change your life."
