Working hard on the book. I got a little sick over the holidays (not enough sleep, too much candy, shitty air, etc.) and it got delayed, but my lovely editor gave me a break… New 100% deadline is the 15th of January. Eight chapters and five appendices to finish. Yeesh.
School starts tomorrow. 10:45. Ugh. Bright side: last semester!
Went tonight and bought a couple very nice Jazz discs… Coltrane and Thelonius Monk to be exact. Jazz is good music to work by… It makes the brain cells swirl in the most incredibly thought-enhancing fashion. I need to get some Billie Holiday. Yeah…
I need more memory for my laptop. It’s a swap-hater’s hell over here. I just realized I haven’t called Amy yet. I have turned my hair a kind of two-tone red and black. My boots are wearing out. I have had too much tea today. My head is swimming just a little from all of the caffiene and tannin. I changed Quincy’s box. I watched The Commitments. I need another hi-liter because I lost my last one and I use it to mark off progress on my work. Nothing is really done until I can hi-lite it away.
I have resigned at About.com; my last day will be the 23rd of January. I don’t know what I’m going to do for work next, but it’s time to move on to other stuff, like grad school.
