As I write this, it’s Wednesday, and I still haven’t started on the office, so it’s time. And thank god I decided to post every Thursday or I’d never get started on this.
It’s almost four o’clock? Jeez. Well, I did get my e-mail done and do a couple of Happiness posts for ReFab, but mostly I slept until eleven and read the news on the net (which includes io9 and AVClub, of course). Hail, Caesar looks excellent. Also, I decided to watch some hotel movies because for some reason I think that’ll help with You Again. No idea why, but never doubt your instincts. I also took the dogs out and walked down to the mail. Yeah, I did nothing for four hours. And now, lunch.
Lunch. Read Ravelry groups while eating. Really want to crochet and think now.
Crocheted and thought about You Again.
Also, my bedroom needs cleaned up. Later for that.
Answered e-mail from Krissie. My inbox is empty, the one place in my life I’m actually on top of.
Took the dogs out and brought in the trash cans. Veronica and Mona came with me. Milton made a break for the woods.
Hunted down Milton. Chased him back into the house with multiple “Bad Dog!”s.
More crochet and thinking.
I need to walk Milton a lot more.
I need to put up hooks in this bedroom.
I need to go look to see if I missed a bag of Maltesers in the snack basket.
Milton has crawled between the bed and side table to get at the chocolate covered blueberries I dropped there last night. One or two won’t hurt him, but I shooed him out anyway.
Wolfie is yiping again, stuck in a corner.
Milton is now investigating the recycling bag.
I just want to crochet and think.
Turning points in You Again. I know what they are, I’m just not sure what order they come in, which means I have to think about Acts.
And get Wolfie out of the corner and the recycling away from Milton.
Just spent forty-five minutes trying to figure out the layout of the house in You Again. Originally, I based it on a Clue game. Think maybe I’ll stick with that.
Cleared out in-box again.
Oooh, AV Club says that the Muppets are better after break.
Rats, not on Hulu yet.
Guess I’ll have to clean.
I could wait until tomorrow . . .
Okay. So I think I’ll start with the couch end/workroom part of the office. Because it’s the least horrible, which is not to say it’s not horrible. It’s vile:
Taking a break which is what asthmatics do when they start to breathe funny. Taking a Diet Coke and all the stuff I found that belongs in the bedroom to the bedroom.
Here’s where we are:
The plan for down there is to keep only what I need to actually work. So no crochet, that goes to the bedroom or the living room. Pens, pencils, scissors, reading glasses, paper, a laptop desk, lots of pillows. Those are all there now, so that’s set.
Wrote a critique post for Writing/Romance.
Mocked up a floor-plan for You Again. That took hours longer than I’d planned, but now it’s done. YAY.
I also cleared out my in-box again. My mail is so tidy.
And then the lights went out and I was without power until now (4PM next afternoon). It was not pretty. I’ve been up since the power left, so I am now going to sleep. Have a lovely evening.
