I got an iPod for my birthday.
My only complaint so far is going through iTunes. But I'm hoping to find a way around that (i've had posession of it for approximately 13 hours, 8 of which I've been asleep, and 2 of which I wasn't able to play with it.

I like the iMonkey avatar, in honor of the occasion.  ;)

I'm at work and the guys next to me are discussing what Prestige Class they're going to be choosing for their D&D characters, Mystic Theurge seams to be quite popular lately.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

I am happy because my wife is over jet lag and her cold.

I'm dog sitting and I forgot how affirming having a dog can be. I mean, all I need to do is feed and water him, pet him occasionally, take him on walks and play "throw the ball" with him whenever I need a break from writing, and he's happy and showers me with love.

If only everyone was this easy to please. Or this fun to please. I'll see if my next boyfriend likes to play "throw the ball."  ;)

I got to use my new parking permit for BYU today. It's blue. It's also good anywhere on campus. Not that parking has suddenly become available, but when it does, I can park there.

*Is jealous*  G-Lot parking is particularly limited, especially after 9 am.

How much are they making people pay for G-permits nowadays?

BYU just decided to do this funky thing where they're charging for bus passes but not for parking permits. So the G-lot permit is free.

My life is so weird right now, but it's a good, peaceful weird. Someone called me today that I completely didn't expect to call. I've spent the weekend tickling and tossing about both my nephews, and now I have a whole week ahead of me with nothing to do but knit, shop, recommend books to my sister, watch movies, and run back and forth between family members. The best part about it is that I'm letting go of feelings of obligation, and it feels so *good*, because then I can do what I want to do and not let certain family members guilt me into coming to them--perhaps once, in the 32 years they've known me, they can come to me if they want to see me. Sweet release from feelings of guilt toward people who rarely do anything for me.

Tangentially, being home (that is, hanging out at my sister's house) and not working at all for nearly a week has been SO refreshing. I'm almost unconnected--no IM access here at my sister's because they don't have wireless and hooking my laptop directly into their connection didn't work for some odd reason (it picks up the signal, but doesn't allow me to connect--they might have a password that their computer automatically remembers, I suppose, but they don't think they do. They think it's just that the connection is temperamental). Oh well, I can still check my email occasionally, and at least I was able to turn around a copyedit that needed to get to the proofreader while I was gone. But the best part is that unconnecting for a while allows me to reconnect in other ways, and it's been so good.

I'm back in Utah, bereft of my luggage and with a developing cold. But I finished my finals and made it home yesterday. the airline finally found my bags late today too. So they *should* get to my parent's place tomorrow. It sure would be nice to change clothes--or at least wear my own clothes again. :P

My first little niece was born yesterday evening. She has a great name: Athena. Horray!!

Aww, how cool. A *much* better name than a lot of the crazy made-up ones I keep hearing about. You got pics of the little one??
