my life…

My life is a series of ongoing Thinks To Do lists, apparently. Though at some point here it seems like I ought to reach a tipping point and should stop needing to make them because I’ll have the bulk of the work done and it’ll just be lightness and puppies and flowers from there on out.

- write 1000 words
- respond to some artists
- get FTP stuff set up & email the team with those details
- see if K8 wants to go listen to trad music on friday
- go to the gym
- do some shopping (dryer sheets, something made entirely of vegetables for dinner, freezable storage unit for remaining RB&R, berries of some sort)
- laundry

When do we get to the lightness and puppies and flowers?

*laughs* Via chat conversation with natural20:

natural20: Go, write.
mizkit: Oh all right. :)
natural20: It’s good for you.
mizkit: builds character?
natural20: Well, by definition, yes. :)

I am now cheerful enough to go write. :)

We are not having especially good luck with computers in this house. I don’t want to turn my new one on until I’ve got a heavy-duty surge protector, which I keep forgetting to buy, and today the power button on Ted’s computer, which had been broken before, ceased to work entirely. The piece can be replaced, but whether we can find a replacement remains to be seen. *headdesk*

I keep forgetting to mention that I actually *have* been practicing my tin whistle! It sounds more like music if I cheat and look at the fingerings, but I’ve been working really hard on actually re-learning to read music, and aside for everything above high E (I just start panicking at that point, unable to remember what notes those are supposed to be, much less how to play them), I’m getting the hang of it again. Of course, I’ve got virtually no recollection of what the different note, er, notations, mean, and I’m not fast enough to make anything sound really good, but at least I’m practicing. *waves a little flag*
