  • 08:10 Momentarily sidetracked by teh intrawebs. Will focus on fiction sub, now–my first in how long?? #submissions #
  • 09:00 Preparing incense and a small sacrifice to the critique group hive-mind for help with my contest sub. #submissions #
  • 11:46 "Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)" by Squeeze & "Mighty Love" by the Spinners in my brain simultaneously. Dichotomy is giving me a headache. #
  • 12:37 "Time just crawls here behind my eyes…" #lyrics #
  • 12:41 That was the first song in my head all day that wasn’t 80s New Wave or 70s R&B. I blame caffeine. #
  • 13:23 Forgot my skoolbooks at my desk. Maybe it’s my subconscious telling me to have lunch in relative peace again? šŸ™‚ #
  • 14:40 Okay, tonight I’ve *got* to get the study-ball rolling. T-minus 8 days to final! #
  • 16:44 *sigh* I can see the last-minute work emergency coming a mile away… #
  • 16:53 "Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine," huh? Oh, if only… if only… #

  • 21:47 Meat is in the tux! He’s in the tux!!! And the scarves are tied to the mike stand, too. #
