Crap. I just checked my work clothes, and I'm going to have to do laundry to get through the weekend. On the one hand, I could suck it up and go to the laundrymat now, so I don't have to go after work on Saturday or Sunday (I'm working at 2 today, which means the 'mat will be closed by the time I get out) but on the other hand I'd rather wait and wash as many clothes at once, even if it means doing laundry when I'm already tired and cranky from work. Feh, though. Laundry sucks.

In other news, it rained last night, and it's still gray and windy out right now, to the point where it makes me think maybe I should close some windows. But will I? Naaaah.

So I'm thinking of joining some of the LJ art/writer communities to motivate myself to write more, and do more arts and crafts in general (I keep toying with the ideas of comics and collage, for instance, but never get around to doing anything about them). I'm also thinking maybe I should create a separate artsy account for myself to make very sure I don't end up reading my Friends page instead of working on writing/art stuff. Do any of you have any thoughts about this? Are separate journals a good way of organizing your LJ headspace? Do you have any good LJ artsy/craftsy/writerly communities to recommend? Would you be interested in reading my artsy journal if I created one? Am I just being stupid and ambivalent about my creativity again, and thinking about art instead of doing it? (YES.) Should I be doing laundry? (Also, yes.) Okay, I'll go do laundry now.

Yesterday I didn't get out of the house until Peter got back from school, and we ended up going on a good expedition involving a pirate ship (true), McMenamin's (mmm, Hammerhead!) and Spider-Man 2 (which was fun, and definitely far better than the first Spider-Man if only because Doc Ock is a much better villain than the Green Goblin, but I still think X2 is the best superhero comic book movie ever, if only because it didn't have ever so many gratuituously screamy women). My point is just that I should get out more. Laundry only barely counts, I know, but it's a start.

in no order except what my brain randomly produced them in:

  • Go to Saturday Market and pick up our first CSA box! Woo! (done as of 3:30 PM Saturday)

  • Share said box of veggie goodness with [livejournal.com profile] theshytiger

  • Get groceries: laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, sundried tomatoes, and maybe others depending on the contents of the CSA box (mostly done as of 7:15 PM Saturday, and I got a nice bike ride in by going to Trader Joe's, so that's good too)

  • Do more laundry, hopefully without enduring loud screechy morons at the laundromat this time. (partially completed as of ~7:45 PM Sunday; I washed work clothes and mostly had the laundromat to myself the whole time)

  • Work on The Witchworld, in an effort to have some new chapters to show [livejournal.com profile] kuddliphish when she visits next weekend.

  • Finish Dhalgren and return it to the library because it is ever so very overdue.

There's probably more but that's enough for now. I can always update the list later anyway.

So yesterday, because I am insane, I got up at 6 AM to wake up [livejournal.com profile] theshytiger so we could drive [livejournal.com profile] pants_of_doom to the Portland airport, then drove back home, got changed, and rode my bike to work for about 9 hours. In my professional opinion, the nooner shift (from anywhere between 11 AM and 12 PM until far too late) can suck it. The 2 PM till far too late is okay, though, which is weird, but whatever. It probably would've been less sucky if I hadn't been so damn tired, but still. Being tired makes me a danger to myself and others, but mostly myself. If you don't want to read about my various and sundry work-related injuries and in particular if you hate reading about blood, skip this section. )

By the time I got home, mere moments after [livejournal.com profile] nedthealpaca and [livejournal.com profile] stereotype441 arrived to crash on our floor en route to the Humboldt Juggling Festival, which is this weekend, I was only barely human. So I washed my filthy exhausted body and went to bed.

Today I am resting and being nice to myself and pondering the chocolate cheesecake recipe in The Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two, which Penny insisted I buy when we were at Smith Family earlier in the week (I also got The Vegetarian Epicure and The Door in the Hedge by Robin McKinley). I'll probably do laundry at some point, since my sock and underwear drawers are both pretty empty, BUT most importantly of all, I'm going to fill out an application to cook for Sundance Natural Foods! I'm so excited! )

But first I think I will have some lunch.

This afternoon I came home from tutoring to read Peter two chapters of Howl's Moving Castle. Eventually we got out and visited the GTFF union office, where we filled out some paperwork that makes me eligible for health insurance as his domestic partner. Rock! Then Peter went off to his office on campus, and I stopped by an ATM for some cash and hit Mother Kali's Books for their CD sale. There I got Independence Meal by Alix Olson, The Righteous Ones by Toshi Reagon, and End of the Summer by Dar Williams, which makes my CD collection much more complete (really, it's amazing I didn't already have those, especially the Dar). Yay! Outside Mother Kali's, a friendly butch lady perusing the super-sale rack told me they were giving out free ice cream cones at Dairy Queen, so that was my next stop (it's a promotional dealy celebrating the 100th anniversary of ice cream). Then I stopped by the Glenwood to pick up my tips, and so now I have small bills with which to do laundry. Then I wandered around and thought about getting a haircut, but decided it was a little risky to do so while wearing my Weird Al "Bad Hair Day" t-shirt (tempting fate and whatnot). So I stopped by Mother Kali's again and signed up to volunteer during textbook rush next week, because if they're really going out of business that could be my last chance to hang out and help out there. Then I rode my bike home, enjoying the beautiful weather all the way. All told, a most satisfying afternoon. Tutoring this morning went okay, too. I still need a haircut and we still need groceries, but I'll be getting on that aforementioned laundry in just a bit, and overall life is good.


Update, 18:45: Okay, so I know this isn't one big paragraph anymore, but I wanted to note that I've been updating the above paragraph like every 15 minutes or something ridiculous like that, and I have no idea why.

So today my primary goal is to do laundry so I have something to wear to work tomorrow. My secondary goals include getting to the post office to get more stamps, depositing my paycheck, and maybe stopping by the library. But before I do any of that, I should have some breakfast. I'm so boring it hurts (no, wait, that's just my residual headache from last night).

LiveJournal Mood Ring results: funny! )

It's also pretty true. I've been feeling pretty energetic lately (with the exception of Friday, when I was the Amazing Zombie Girl at work until Charlie the best waiter ever made me some crazy magic coffee-chai concoction that would've kept me hopped up all day on any other day, but instead only brought me up to normal energy levels --- I was fried because Peter and I stayed up way past my bedtime watching Amélie the night before, but I digress). I think it's because I've been getting more exercise, consistently riding my bike home the long way from work and whatnot. Oh, and did I mention I worked today? And that I have my birthday and the day afterwards off (because I traded my Friday 7 AM shift for somebody's Wednesday 7 AM)? Clearly, I should have me some birthday fun that involves staying up way too late, since I'm not going to have to get up early the next day.... but what? Oh, my life is so hard and so full of dilemmas. Okay, maybe not, but it certainly is going to be full of laundry in a bit, and after that probably dinner at Pizza Research Institute. Yum.

Whee!

Another too-true web quiz. They're either on or off, these things. )

In other news, big thanks to everybody who's filled out the polls in my previous entry; I love you all! And now, one last question I forgot to ask:

[Poll #149238]

Ok, time to check the laundry. I drove over to the old apartment in a van we're babysitting for Peter's classmate James, the voices in my head singing the Adam Sandler song "Piece of Shit Car" the whole way (I giggle every time I get to the lines "It sucks royal dick!", "Eats the gas, sucks my ass!" or "Fucking rag for a gas cap!") because it's been looking all rainy and I figured I could take advantage of cheap student housing laundry one last time (the laundromat within walking distance of the new place is pretty reasonably priced, actually, and remarkably walkable, as long as I'm only carrying one bag of laundry).

Whoa!

Ok, so one of my goals for today was to harass the Glenwood for more hours, but I ended up putting that off since I wasn't technically done tutoring yet. Tonight I was finishing up my laundry goal and the phone rang. It's my boss at the Glenwood, asking if I can come in Thursday and Friday mornings. Hell yeah I can! It's going to be bitch-ass early, but I'm gonna do it! Woo more hours!

Now I'm going to bed, since I'm meeting my student stupid early tomorrow (where "stupid early" is defined as 9 AM, which is not too early to cook but may be too early for number theory... I just hope I'm not completely useless).

I'm currently finishing my third pot of tea for the day. I don't think it will keep me up all night, seeing as right now I can hardly keep my eyes open.

I haven't made any progress in the packing to move department, but hey. We've got two weeks to move in, and as long as we get the big unwieldy furniture and heavy books done this weekend, the rest is relatively easy, with of course the big fat attention-demanding meowy exception that is Iggy Pop. Oh, life is nothing if not interesting. I'm tired, but I'm still feeling pretty good about that.

  • Laundry

  • Clean cat box

  • Tutor my last student of the term at 1 PM (number theory, and find out how her analysis final went) This is about half-done, since it turns out her final got rescheduled, so we're meeting again tomorrow.

  • Maybe stop by the Glenwood and celebrate that I'm done tutoring for a bit and drop hints that I'd like more hours now that I've got all the free time Um, cancel that until I'm ACTUALLY done with my student, ok?

  • Clean the table in the living room, which is kind of out of control

  • Start packing to move (we get the keys to the new place on Friday or Saturday, but since I'm working on Saturday and can't be helpful then I'd better be useful before that)

  • Updated to add: Make hummus. Done! And deliciously so, I might add.

  • Updated to add: Pay for health insurance for the month of June (oops; I just found the bill in the living room table mess)

And now, a story about the last time Peter and I moved: <lj-cut> for everyone's convenience )

Okay, enough digressions. Time to do some laundry, I guess.
