I cooked again today.  Multiple times in the same week is an accomplishment for me. :)  I now have lunches for the rest of the week.

I finished 2 work things I'd been putting off.

I wrote just over a 1,000 words for a Steve/Danny fic that started as a bunny for a simple little shmoopy thing that should have been about 500 words at most.  At this point I'm not even sure that I'm going to get to the original bunny that kicked this sucker off!  It developed plot and case stuff!!! WTF?

Heading to bed but hoping the momentum continues tomorrow. :D

ETA:  What the hell with the winds tonight L.A.???  It sounds like my porch is going to fly away!

I'm actually on my way to feeling accomplished today. 

I've done the grocery shopping for the week. 
Have crock pot started with chicken in mushroom sauce which will be lunch/dinners for week (yum!).
Have made a small dent (but it still totally counts) in my laundry for the weekend. (Seriously how do I go through so many clothes and linens?)
Have started keeping a food journal again. (Not so much focusing on a "diet" but I know I make better choices when I write them down.)

Plans for upcoming activities:

Clear spot to set up yoga mat to start doing at least stretches in the morning.
Tackle bathroom from hell.
Get at least one plot bunny hopping.  (Possibly watch a H50 ep.  Purely for research, of course.)
Read at least one chapter of something non-fannish.
Work on non-fannish blog.

Meh.

One of the managers at work came in looking like death on a cracker. So guess who has the start of a cold now? It's nothing big, just a bit of a sore throat today. Not gonna lie, it's kind of nice to have a day off from the madness.

I've been trying to be somewhat productive and started uploading some of my paltry fic to AO3. Beyond that I'm trying to decide whether to level up a few toons in WoW (I blame [livejournal.com profile] crimsonquills for this completely with the whole new DC characters we're now doing in the game...), watch more Hawaii 5-0, work on icons that I really need to get cracking on or make a dent in my Netflix stack. Total first-world issues, I know.

So how is everyone else today?

Because I need to focus on some happy stuff at the moment, a list...

I get to work from home tomorrow. YAY!

I'm almost done with the neverending sweater. I have two rows left for the body and then the sleeves which are short, so not too bad.

I just found out that I'm going to see Matthew Rhys in a play in December.

I got new art supplies to play with today. :)

Ummm...Oh! I get to hang with cool, fun people on Sunday at a No H8 event.

I'm sure there's other happy making stuff that I'm forgetting at the moment, but at least it's a start.

Okay, it's actually pretty mundane. I'm spending the day cleaning and getting rid of a LOT of old clothes today. In the background I've decided to put on the "Quantum Leap" episodes I have from Netflix at the moment so that I can finally send them back. I also have a bunch of my "JAG" DVDs out too. I'm clearly in a DPB mood this weekend. I may need to find some "Magnum P.I." and dig out my "Black Sheep Squadron" DVDs as well.

I'm also having a pretty awesome lunch of a BLT salad and zucchini. Not sure why I felt compelled to share that, but it's REALLY good.

Tomorrow is the Laramie Project. So excited. Along with PP, MW and ZQ, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki from "The Big Bang Theory" will be there as well. Can't wait! I've determined that my camera issues last week were indeed due to my batteries. They're rechargeable, but apparently aren't recharging. I'll be stocking up on a huge supply of AAs before tomorrow.

I've also changed my layout and default icon to something a bit more Halloweeny/Fallish.

Umm...I think that's all the ramble for the moment.

So I promised [livejournal.com profile] slb44 that I would post pics of my new 'do and the yarn I purchased while out today.

Here they be... )

So I think I finally found a work BFF.  Well two really.  I've been at my current place of employment for about 2 1/2 years.  I'm mostly friendly with the folks I work with, but folks in this line of work tend to be more on the conservative side of the spectrum.  I'm the chick with the tattoos for a lot of them.

Anyway, I started working on a company-wide consolidation project a few months back. (This is the project that is eating my life and sucking my time and will to live by the time I get home at night because of the intensity and the hours.)  The business had requested me specifically for this project which is flattering.  Especially given that the two women who requested me have a bit of a reputation with others in the company as being extremely demanding. (Read: They're called bitches because they actually expect to get what they request from our IT department.)

The Director who is directly involved in my project and I have completely hit it off and she's totally someone I would hang out with if I'd met her outside of work.  I've missed that since I've been here.  As an added bonus, she has the most fabulous assistant in the history of assistants.  He's the nicest guy you ever want to meet and he likes to ponder things like "Who's hotter?  John Barrowman or Gareth David-Lloyd."  Apparently it's a discussion he and his partner get into quite often.  (For the record Jeff (the assistant) is more of a Gareth fan. :D)  We actually squeed a bit when we discovered today that we were both fans of Torchwood.  He hasn't seen the second season yet, so I get the happy task of providing it for him.  OH! And he also just bought Sims 2 so I'm talking him through all the cheats and download websites.  Yay fun.

In other 'Yay' news, I ordered myself a new cell phone today.  Mine had become posessed with the spirit of Robbie Williams.  Seriously!  It would start playing my Robbie Williams ringtones (and only the Robbie Williams ones) even whent the phone was on vibrate and there was no call coming in.  The only way to get it to stop was to shut the phone down each time.  I even had an incident where I tried to call into a work meeting and all I could hear as the call was trying to connect was "Let Me Entertain You".  Weird.

So, I will very shortly be the new posessor of a lovely pink phone that has all sorts of bells and whistles.  It even has a feature that will act as a pedometer to tell you how far you've walked and how many steps you've taken.  It will also work when I'm in the UK and power up through my laptop so that I don't need a voltage converter (a concern with my current phone).

Which brings me to my final 'Yay' of the post:

ONE WEEK UNTIL I LEAVE FOR LONDON!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
