Got a package in the mail from John today -- he found a copy of The Little Prince in its original French language. I've been leafing through it and trying to remember reading this in high school and how insanely proud of myself I had been. There was another one in there, cartoons about Freud and psychology, judging by the cover, and a pack of the gum that he has that I like. (It's lime flavored, and it's really good.)
So, yeah. Grinning like a goober over that.
Today's been pretty good, all things factored in, especially that last one we discussed two paragraphs up.
Today was my short day at work, which was nice, haven't had one of those for a while because I volunteered on the Janesville East Clinic horns, which are always busy, and kept me at work from 8AM-4:30PM. Was on the basic direct physician to physician line today, which wasn't too bad, it rarely is, the calls come in at a very reasonable pace, and I read some bits out of "Lucy" while I waited on docs to gimme a ring. Caught a really good natured doc today who teasingly made fun of Dean Direct, the name of our service, as Dean INDirect. He was only teasing, though, and even if he wasn't, it was still funny. I love people who are willing to take things lightly. There's no reason to be so freaking serious about every last thing there is. Laugh, already! Life IS a joke! (You should hear the punchline to it!)
I'll be up at 4:45AM tomorrow in order to make it to work by 6AM, which is gonna be slightly crazy, but I think I can manage. I took over for a coworker a few weeks ago because she had some urgent issues to attend to on that date, and I couldn't leave her hanging. I don't mind getting up early, I'm a perpetual early riser anyhow, (just ask Puppetcancer
, I'm up at the ass crack of dawn most days), what I mind tomorrow is how bitterly cold it plans to be. Dammit, Wisconsin! Quit being frigid, it's getting old. I know it's February, but we're seriously having severe weather alerts for dangerous wind chill factors. (For us, that has to be -30 wind chills or LOWER, if that's even humanly possible to survive. I can barely manage as it is, and it's 10 degrees out! Now take forty degrees off of that... NO. *insert photo of Grumpy Cat here*)
And needless to say, I'll be turning in early tonight. 'Cause 4:45AM comes really darned quick.
Not doing much at the moment, aside from soaking a few pieces of jewelry in a patina solution. Waiting to take them out and polish off the oxidization I don't want and leave the rest on there. It's mainly a waiting process, and ya'll know how great MLP is at waiting.
And that's been my day thus far, and it's not quite over yet. I'll probably put some new art into my brand new sketchbook that I bought today when I got the patina solution because I haven't got much left in my old one.
God love you like I do.
