Mom, everyone else has a zillion user pictures. Why don't I?

Well, I do now. Read 'em and weep. :-)

Doing that little bit of scanning and Photoshop tweaking was profoundly satisfying, albeit in a rather childish fashion. (It was a useful counterpoint to doing the bills, and discovering I've run out of money, with more than a week until the next check is due, and a truly alarming pile of bills awaiting their turns.)

Oh, very yummy news: I may acquire a housemate. Having a little income towards the mortgage won't hurt, but having someone willing to barter household labor (can you say "litter boxes"? I knew ya could) towards same will be truly delightful. And I've never really liked living alone. She'll come over Saturday and we'll see what's what.

Waking up at home has remarkable restorative powers. I should really make more of a habit of it.

Current Mood: pleasedpleased

I tend to classify things like this in the 'I've accomplished something, but it wasn't really necessary' pile of procrastination techniques. I get a similar sensation doing it. :)

Yay housemate! Yay house!

It's called flicking.

*looks at website* There is an actual term for this. When it enters Merriam-Websters or the Oxford English Dictionary, I'm going to be scared. No, I do not consider Microsoft Encarta to be a real dictionary.

Nah, this wasn't actually flicking on anything except perhaps going to bed. (Unless you want to define flicking as 'anything that doesn't generate billable hours', which seems kinda harsh to me. The laundry still needs to get done, after all.)
