Making the scene with the coffee and cream [May. 11th, 2005|12:08 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

I'm home sick from work today with a sore throat, a cough, and a sniffle. My throat feels like it's on fire, but there's so much to do that I don't think I can take the day off, not really. Here are the things I should try to get done today (I'll cross them off as I get them done):

  • Return Mona Lisa Overdrive to the Evanston library (it's waaaay overdue)
  • Mail cookies and Mother's Day card to my mom (again, way overdue)
  • Go get quarters for laundry
  • Actually do laundry (I've been making the minimum payments on my laundry balance for a very long time, and it's threatening to spill out of the closet and take over the room)
  • Buy food
  • Email Scott Solter; find out if he's touring with the Mountain Goats
  • Email my uncle, who sent me an amazing email weeks and weeks ago to which I haven't responded
  • Email other person about books and music and stuff
  • Vacuum and/or sweep

If I get all that done before 8:30, there are also lots of things I want to write about. I have a Wilco story as well as an amazing story about the kindness of strangers.

Awesome. I hear that.

Oh, I hear you on overdue library books; I got especially spoiled for the last couple of years because library staff didn't have to pay late fees, with predictable results. Now, unpacking the last few boxes (yes, we moved in January and are still unpacking :0) I've just found a library book that was accidentally packed in with ours. Need to get that thing in the mail stat - one of these days I'm going to need a reference from them!

Wow. If I'd worked for a library, I think half my books would be library books today. My book was so late that they'd given it up for lost and sent me a letter that they were charging me the $28 replacement fee. When I actually turned up with it, they only charged me $8 (the maximum overdue fine is $10), so I was relieved.

I think somewhere I still have a copy of A Separate Peace that I stole from my high school.

Don't even think about commenting back until you get some of your stuff done. =)

Heh. I'm home sick too with what may be the same thing. I hope it's not though, since I'm pretty sure I'm battling pneumonia. My dad had/has it and my symptoms are pretty much the same as his....

I'm glad someone is carrying the obsessive relational database tour history torch.

Put "get well" on that list, L'il Missy!

Being sick is like multiplying fun by 0.7.

Woohoo! Most of the laundry is still in the dryers, but hey, that counts as done as far as I'm concerned.

Now to get better. Sigh.
