Didn't get to run today. [Mar. 5th, 2005|04:39 pm]

Because I'm really smart, I forgot that I had to pay the rent, so I spent most of my afternoon taking a train, then a bus, to Skokie to drop off my rent check because it was too late to mail it, then taking a bus, then a train, back home. It was okay, though. The management place is right by this skateboard store, so while I was waiting for the bus I got to watch all these kids, who couldn't have been more than twelve, trying out skateboards in the parking lot. It was very cute. They reminded me of our group of skaters at camp last summer. And if I do seven miles tomorrow and five on Monday, I'm still caught up.

I also managed to wash the dishes and do laundry. Woo! And Jim jwithington and I are going to see Jeff Tweedy tonight! Also woo! Although I'm sorry to miss the show (and opening party thing) that Maya leadsynth is board-opping and designing a little of, too.

eek! Concert! Gotta hurry...

1. You could've run to Skokie. Dempster may be home to the ugliest strip malls ever, but it at least has sidewalks (except for right by the Edens.)

2a. I designed at least half of Leaving Iowa. Tim told me to just put "sound designer" on my résumé. He also told me the production would kick some more money my way, but first they have to GET the money from ticket sales. Ah, independent theater!

2b. No big that you couldn't come last night. The performance will be better later in the run anyway. Trust me, we're still tweaking stuff. Tim will never let me be done with this design. But press night is Friday, so we should really be on our game that night. Just let me know when you want in.

Back to work . . .

Yeah...when I talk about having to get errands done and also having to run, people are always like, "Can't you just combine them?" But I kind of can't. When I run, I need to know exactly how far I'm running, so I have to stick to an area where it's marked or where I know how far it is -- the lakefill. And even if I knew that it was, say, exactly 5 miles from home to some random place I had to go for an errand, that wouldn't be okay because I'd need to know where the 3-mile increments are so that I could walk when I got to them...that kind of thing. I'd rather not have the stress of trying to work that stuff out -- I freak out enough over not knowing if I'm running enough miles. And also, I can't really carry a lot of stuff like money or my glasses with me, and I don't want to stop running in order to do stuff. So no, it doesn't work that way...at least, not for me.

2a. I designed at least half of Leaving Iowa. Tim told me to just put "sound designer" on my résumé.

Oops. Dig! I'm so proud of you. *hug* You're awesome!

2b. No big that you couldn't come last night. The performance will be better later in the run anyway.

Good good. I can't wait to see it. Really. I'll keep Friday in mind...

Hey, maybe we know other people who want to go. (leadsynth, is there a limit on how many comp tickets you can give out?)

Tuesday we could do coffee, then Buffy. (I could even meet you at the Old-School Town when your class ends, if you want.)

I know. =) But Tuesday night was declared Buffy night. You can't disrupt the sanctity of Tuesday!

(Although zerbie says, "As far as I'm concerned, every night is Buffy night." hmm.)
