The impending-holiday vagues...

Today's post is brought to you by the letter E.

No, not that E. I mean E for Excitement. I had to restrain myself from doing my 'away' email around the company as soon as I got to work. I spent some time last night calculating how many trips it'll take me to get all the stuff I'm taking downstairs and in the car. And I had a Bright Idea at 3am.

I am so 12.

I also forgot to put my underwear on this morning.

So anyway, suffice to say that expecting me to remember anything between now and Monday is probably expecting too much. If I've arranged to meet you, I'll probably need a reminder.

The other cause of excitement is the pending arrival of my new pooter bits. If I'm lucky, they'll arrive today and I'll be back in business tonight, or sometime over the weekend. If I'm not, they'll arrive on Monday and it'll be all sorted when I get back from KB. Either way, no more *click*go and make coffee*click*

kayakman posted a quote the other day, something along the lines of "Is courage -- strength of character -- desirable? Then must man be reared in an environment which necessitates grappling with hardships and reacting to disappointments." It's from the Urantia book, which I hadn't heard of. It makes a lot of sense, I think. In which case, to make it all about me because this is lj, my computer not arriving today would be a good thing. My computer arriving today would also be a good thing, in a different way.

I like the way the world is set up so that everything is a good thing. Please remind me of this next time I get down.

Check in for January - Are you enjoying yourself? Please explain. (me? yes, yes i am. this month has been a bit up and down so far, but on the whole, i'm having a good time. you?)
