Wow Luna Sunrise Bars are sweet.  (I had a Strawberry Crumble this morning.)

At lunch, walking from Spangler to the Baker-Morgan patio, there were sprinklers going and I couldn't resist walking through them even though it wasn't actually that hot out.

I actually had work to do today -- what up?  I spent the morning getting full text versions of a couple dozen of articles for Prof.D. (plus fixing an expense report) and then I was gonna go to I was going to go to Gutman to photocopy an article that wasn't available online but instead I proofread an article on organizational trust.

A guy with a thick Spanish accent called me at work needing my email address (it was legit) and I actually busted out the NATO phonetic alphabet (though on repeat I did "sam" and "nancy" for "sierra" and "november").  He was having no end of trouble with "Y," though -- kept thinking I was saying "J" or something.  I was wracking my brain for what else besides "Yankee" begins with "Y" (I literally said, "the letter before Z, the second-to-last letter in the alphabet," but that was not helping any) and literally Googled it and said "Yahoo" and he got it.

Tonight I was making mac&cheese and realized I hadn't taken a stick of butter out of the freezer after I used up the last one.  So I took one out and figured I'd just try to cut it.  I wasn't really paying attention, though, and I wasn't cutting straight down, so the knife of course failed to cut the frozen butter very much and went right across.  I saw the big gouge and was like, "Ooh, that's gonna scar."  I kept pressure on it and kept it elevated, and it kept pouring blood, and I was beginning to think with annoyance that I was going to have to trek to the hospital, but no, I can has platelets.

I think I may have whatever it is that Kate bought me for dessert.

We had beautiful weather today.

Weight room at the gym this morning.  I like that I can consistently do reps of my few machines most of the time.  And I'm trying to push myself but not too much -- remembering that if I'm over-exerting myself, using muscles an exercise isn't supposed to work, that's not actually a good thing and I'd be treating my body better if I stopped.  (Balancing this with my inclination to stop at the slightest exertion.)

I had an Iced Oatmeal Raisin Luna bar for dinner.  It smelled so good, but it tasted kinda meh.

ASL class today we reviewed sports and physical descriptors and clothes, and learned more clothes and verbs and professions and other stuff.  I have given up trying to write down any of this.  And I continue thinking in Spanish a lot and not understanding what Albo is saying/asking.

(I miss making thinky posts.  I have so many back-burnered.  I miss sleeping enough, too.)
