happy lunchtime, everyone.
i feel like i’ve been on a spaceship. the last hours, day, two days have flown by. the first part of the week was tooth-pullingly slow. that einstein fellow was onto something. but it’s a damn good thing these days have been going by quickly, because in my immediate circle of friends, over the last two days we’ve had: illness; lost house keys; set off building alarms (two of them, one requiring an evacuation); diverted traffic; a day’s worth of lost work; relocations and other assorted life changes; a misplaced coffee order; and SNOW.
i have become the keeper, the foster mother, of the wayward excel documents, but in more sad news, this month i will have to abandon them for six very time-sensitive projects. alas, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
on the bright side, i have a MAGICAL new corkscrew thanks to dan in honor of my birthday, and ventured to get myself an itrip and an ipod dock. this renders my enormous CD book obsolete, as dan rightly pointed out. it’s the end of an era. a dangerous era in which I was trading ben folds for talib kweli while either cruising down the highway at 75 mph or swerving to avoid reckless pedestrians and thoughtless boston taxicabs — but an era, nonetheless.
and i have pretty excellent birthday plans in the works, to wit: mixed drinks; gazpacho; general merriment; better weather (ARE YOU LISTENING, CLIMATE?). so there is a lot to look forward to.
