1. The timestamp on my LJ is way not-right. I don't know how to fix that. I did, however, long ago accept that the timestamps on my friends page make no sense whatsoever.

2. A customer dropped a pedometer on the floor and never came back for it, a week or two ago. Yesterday I wore it and logged 13.58 km between 2 pm and 8:30 pm. My Dashboard conversion widget informs me that's 8.44 miles.

3. No more with the airplane crashing. Thank you.

4. TMI: I paused to use the bathroom just before going to catch my bus, and was astonished by the realization that my Aunt Flo, to put it euphemistically, had come to visit. Naturally the terrible cramps did not start until I noticed. I am forced to wonder: if I never notice it, do the cramps happen? But no, I am not going to pursue this in the name of science. But it was a bit of luck, because I would have been absolutely miserable to discover it once already at work and utterly unprepared. Ugh.

5. I did not go rollerskating last night: terrible cramps and 8 1/2 miles of walking yesterday did not incline me charitably towards the idea of expending physical effort for no reason. People wonder why I am so reluctant to exercise during my work week...

6. I created a new drink last night. I put a shot of rum into a glass with ice cubes. Then I put in a shot of Bailey's. Then a shot of amaretto. Then a shot of creme de cocoa. Then a shot of Kahlua. Then I put another shot of rum in. That was a mistake, so I added milk. But that was a mistake. So I added Bailey's.
I slept really well.
Z's experiment, for the record, did not go so well. Rigas black balsam tastes ok with kahlua, but if you add Bailey's it curdles. "The Black Latvian is a success," Z said, "but the White Latvian is a failure." He chugged it and passed out.
We're nearly out of Black Balsam. I don't know whether this is good or bad.

7. I also wrote a fawning lj comment to [livejournal.com profile] marthawells about how awesome she is. She is awesome. But I am a little leery of going back and reading what i wrote, as I was about 3/4 through my what is delicious drink.

8. I am going to be posting daily writing tallies to [livejournal.com profile] treigylgweith this year, again, f-locked. They'll be behind cuts, so they shouldn't clutter up people's friends-pages too much. Anyone who wants on, lemme know. Anyone who wants off, my feelings won't be hurt. I'm going to start posting the warm-up fragments on there too.

9. I did some writing yesterday, sort of experimenting to get the feel of a character I'm thinking of using as a POV char. Started off with kind of a flashback, to a traumatic even that made him what he is today, etc.
I killed him off in the flashback.
Whoops. Things aren't going well.

10. By the way I am finally downloading Firefox because I cannot deal with how BAD Safari is. :p
