February 12, 2003 – morning

You know…when I make crazy statements like, “I’m going to steam clean my carpets after work!” I wish I’d get a mild electric shock or SOMETHING to let me know that I’m being totally unrealistic. What a wack-job I can be.

I’ve been experimenting with…mascara these past few days. I used to wear it all the time, but now it seems to get below my lower lashes making me look like Avril Lavigne or Gwynneth Paltrow in the Royal Tenenbaums. Maybe I need brown instead of brown-black?

Wt: 140.4 (shock!)
Mood: Shocked!
Work Docket: Another woozily busy day ahead. I want to kick out Bridal Guide and now we have a Taste of Home Cooking School special section which has RECIPES in it so that touches two projects instead of one. Oh yeah, throw in a 10:00 conference call just for giggles.
Lunch plans: Saladworks
Afternoon plans: To the gym!
Evening plans: I have to get Mom’s Birthday gift.
What I learned this morning: No matter WHAT time you leave the house, if you get stuck behind a Buick, you’ll be late to work.

What a totally awesomely busy day! I took a lot of time to redesign the Bridal Guide. It should be done tomorrow, and I’m very pleased with it. The HC lunch was bearable…but I didn’t pay much attention to it since I really had my WebDiva mojo going on.

THEN…this afternoon I played a bit of Asheron’s Call. Two dear friends and guildmates, Heart of Flame and Monkey Overlord accompanied me to the Legionnaire and Eviscerator Lairs so I could collect pincers (claws taken from an Olthoi, which is an insect-like monster). Upon turning in the two trophies, I received 3,500,000 experience points! Geez!! I’m now 1/2 way to level 58. This is amazing. 🙂

I’ll nuke some soup or something in a few minutes. I really should run the carpet steamer. I mean…REALLY I should.

(downloading huge database…waiting…)

Wt: 141.8 (am pleased, given the large dinner I had on Sunday)
Mood: Anxious…there is so much to be done here at work
Work Docket: Did static. WANTED to work on new customer service section, but the Bride and Groom supplement (orig. planned to come out on Thursday) came out today. I wanted some lead time to work on that so I can make a nice presentation, but it looks as if I’ll have to give it the McDonald’s treatment (plain but fast). I also want to work on some banners to promo the upcoming redesign.
Lunch Plans: Healthy Choice chicken and pasta in a cream sauce. I’ll reserve judgement.
Afternoon Plans: Mail letters @ Post Office, steam clean carpets
Evening Plans: Unknown. I want to try and figure out something to do on Friday night.

While I was at the Y yesterday I was watching CNN Headline News on the overhead TV. I saw mention of the upcoming expansion to the Patriot Act. Now, given that the TV was on mute without closed captioning enabled, all I saw was the graphics that CNN showed. Which contained scary phrases like “secret arrests” and “expatriation.” I was kind of itchy about the first part of the Patriot Act, so now I’m VERY itchy about the second part. I think I’m going to have to read more about this…here’s a good place to start.
