brief random update

... I slept unil noonish today, after waking up at 8 to take the dog out; I'm finally caught up on my sleep after this horrendously sleep deprived weekend. I woke up to an email about the Columbia space shuttle, read my friends list, and looked at a bit of cnn.com as well as turning it on TV. But right now, I'm taking that email's advice to turn the TV off, and celebrate the loss of 7 of our best and brightest by not being a media maven, but by doing something else with which to remember them.

So I took some time out to play with the dog and give him one of his favorite things: a meat filled bone, before finishing my latest book, which was not as good as the previous one I just finished: Bee Season, by Myla Goldberg. If you haven't read it, you should. It's wonderfully written and thought-provoking, two big things in my book.

The next book on my shelf is Into thin air : a personal account of the Mount Everest disaster by Jon Krakauer.

And now, I think I'm going to get ice cream before finishing my weekly house blessing and doing some decluttering. It's like exercise -- I have a hard time getting started, but I'm always glad I did it. (speaking of exercise, I should do 15 min of that today, too, as I skipped yesterday)

    Being in the office at 8:30 am means getting up at 5 because I hate traffic and traffic starts at 6:30. Wah. But I did get more Caribou. YOMS.
