Happy Sunday morning there, ya’ll!
So, stuff happened this week that is sucky for the short-term, but awesome for the long-term (I think). Basically someone at my job quit really abruptly, so for the next 1-2 months, I’m doing 10-hour days, 5 days a week at my job. BUT at the same time I’m also training to move into a slightly different position at work that will have me doing more important stuff and learning a lot, will be regular 8 to 5 hours (or earlier, if I want) with nice hour-long lunches, and will pay more. The OT sucks right now because I’m working 8:30 to 7 and I have practically zero time for working out or reading. But I have a new position to look forward to when that’s over, and hopefully that will get me back on track for reading and blogging things as well. You may have noticed me commenting sporadically or on posts that are days to a week old… this is going to be the norm for a while. I’m tryin.
Reading has been AWFUL for me this month. It’s killing me a bit. I re-read The Rosie Project (awesome), read two graphic novels (Revival Vol. 1 and Chew Vol. 2), and quit Bleak House because seriously, no time for all that. I’m on page 306 of 435 in Assassin’s Apprentice, which I’m actually really enjoying except that I’m reading it basically a half-hour at a time. I was not prepared to work this much this week, so coming home and trying to figure out dinner has been a pain in the ass. I’ve basically come home, made food, watched an episode of something with the honeyman, and gone to bed. I’m planning things better for this week so at least I won’t have to waste a bunch of time making food.
ANYWAYS. Happy Valentine’s Day! Which I know was two days ago, but shut up. The honeyman did a FABULOUS job and got me a cutlass! It’s sharp, full-tang, not too heavy, and awesome. I’m soooooo going to be a pirate for Halloween this year. And of course, flowers and food. (And I got him a collapsible bow and arrow set he had been wanting.) We basically just hung out together Friday night and Saturday, watching most of Archer season 4 and spending time together. I did finally get to the gym this weekend too, which was awesome. I really missed it during the week and I think desperately needed it just to release tension and all that from work. It was fun.
- I’ve listened to a full 1o episodes of Welcome to Night Vale now, so I might do a review-thingy of that this week, if I can squeeze it in.
- There’s a multidimensional new geometric shape that means important things for quantum field theory.
- I definitely fell on black ice on V-Day night. I tried to save myself so I fell pretty slowly, but still scraped up my left knuckles somehow.
- I’m going to do a Sprite vs. Sierra Mist taste challenge today. We bought both, and the honeyman is going to blindfold me and have me taste test them, because he thinks I can’t tell the difference. He is wrong, because I KNOW Sprite is way more delicious.
And now I’m off to rush through all my errand so I can get home, do laundry, and read my ass off. I want to finish Assassin’s Apprentice, Saga Vol. 1, and Hellsing Vol. 1. Oh and yeah, I bought my first manga novel… I have reached a level of nerd that I never thought I would, but I do want to get more into Hellsing. I’ve seen some of the show, and it’s good, and the honeyman loves it.
How has everyone’s week been? Do any fun things on Valentine’s Day? Anything you’re excited about this week?
