The walk home calmed me (I stayed fewer than ten minutes late) but yeah, my job is insane-making sometimes. I am now definitively regretting abstaining from most people's holiday card polls, 'cause the possibility of pieces of paper kindness is definitely appealing. (Today I came home to a Christmas card from Kevin.) I'm off to do a brief grocery shop, laundry, and finish this week's Joyce reading (plus I should review for tomorrow's quiz); when I return I'll do up a full post about today, plus post a wantlist (in case any of y'all are so inclined), and respond to comments [yay for discussion!] and flist.
