I'm Sleepy!

I actually managed to finish The Reader today while on lunch. It took me a while to see where the title came from but I think that was intentional.

Tonight I started reading The Pleasure of My Company by Steve Martin.

I spent a few hours writing. I worked on an essay about forgiveness (400 words) which I'm not happy with and will probably abandon until it's the right time to do it. It was a contest entry that's due on the 10th. I also started my December Slink Shot and got down over 1000 words. Not quite 1667 but a good chunk of it got done. I started with a one sentence idea. I think I'll have to spend some time figuring out what the story is about before I get too much further into it.

Survey says... mice prefer to die than to be captured by humane traps. The second mouse bit the dust tonight while we were watching the Masters of Horror: Homecoming episode. My husband heard the trap go off. This one was smaller than the other one. I asked Zilla if he let them into the apartment to play with him while we were gone all day but he acted like he didn't know what I was talking about.

Work today was one emergency or issue after another. I'm tired now!

It's a Corgi Day!

We're expecting bad weather and a decent amount of snow tonight. Blech. If I weren't a manager in a 7x24 call center, I'd actually like it. With Level 2 snow emergencies you're only supposed to be out if necessary. With level 3 snow emergencies you're only supposed to be out if you're emergency personnel and you can get tickets from the police for being out.

The good news is that today on my 365 Dogs a Year calendar is that it's a Corgi Day! There's a smiling Corgi sticking the tip of her tongue out at me. Surely if it's a Corgi Day, then the weather won't turn out to be so bad, right? Right?

I should have figured out last night what I was going to wear to work today. Decisions. Decisions.
