Things are beginning to ramp up again at work as the legislature gets ready to re-convene on Monday. For a while there, I was actually making it home at a normal time and having evenings with the hubby. Although this two-week recess has pushed session through mid-April, I've kind of enjoyed having a mini-break. I was getting frazzled and stressed, and my pile of back-burnered things-to-do was on the verge of achieving sentience and eating my brain. My stress-o-meter is still nudging the red, but I'm pretty confident that a meltdown isn't imminent.
fosteronfilm got passes from a movie publicity person for a screening of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie on Sunday that will debut the trailer for the upcoming third movie. They're encouraging folks to come dressed in pirate gear. He passed the word around to Dragon*Con folks, and it looks likely that there will be a strong D*C pirate contingency. Hope I'll be able to attend, but I think there's a decent chance I'll have to work.
Managed to plow through a healthy swath of both Tangent and The Town Drunk items. Huzzah.
Geez, Eugie, sounds like you are being worked to a soft lump of beaten pulp. Hope this is over soon! Take your vitamins!!! (Okay, this is the mom in me coming out, but come on; enough is enough.)
Congrats on the D*C news. I know you'll be mobbed with fans.
Hee! Mobbed by fans. As if.
"sounds like you are being worked to a soft lump of beaten pulp. Hope this is over soon!"
Less "soft lump of beaten pulp" and more "moderately squashed pile of jelly." Actually, this last couple weeks hasn't been so bad. I expect next week will hugely suck, as Tuesday is "crossover day," Day 30, the deadline for introducing new bills. But the stress and hectic levels have been massively down this week, which has been a nice respite.
"Take your vitamins!!!"
Yes, ma'am! (Or should that be "mom"?) I do, every day. Anything to bolster my @#$!^ lame-ass immune system.
