Barely time to breathe.  
And now is the time on Sprockets when we dance when Morri's work life goes completely batshit insane, for it's nearly the end of the quarter and therefore clients are frantically getting ready to submit their data. And freaking out. And I'm one of the experts on this particular product, which is really quite scary. One of my clients offered me a job, though - in DC. But alas, I had to turn him down. Still, rather flattering really. Lunch hours and breaks - what are those? There was a day or two this week that I really don't think I ever went to the washroom. I don't think I'm exaggerating - but as I can barely remember my name at the moment, who knows? So basically I will be more than a bit sporadic in terms of reading, posting and commenting on LJ until early September sometime - if you're needing something quickly, email is best.

That said, I had a really great week despite work hell. sansepines was in town for last-minute, pre-move to Philly for med school fun, so we went to dinner at Reza's Tuesday night and had a great time talking and eating yummy food. weatherby, you and she should grab coffee or something sometime after she moves. *nods*

I've gotten next to no sleep all week, due in part to RP giddiness. I've just been having a lot of fun playing and am anticipating more silliness in the future - although hopefully more sleep. Must work on adhering to the schedule. *avoids looking at clock, oh wait, tomorrow's SATURDAY*

I was going to write this post about being female and in your mid-30s and what they say about that and hormones but I haven't found the time. And a part of me sort of wants to go "Woohoo! Any takers?" but I'm not ever going to get involved with someone from LJ or any sort of community like this again. I've done it twice now and ugh. I am not a fish, I don't like bowls and I really don't like censoring myself. There was going to be a long rant on that too, but I don't know if I'll get to it. Oh, are those sighs of relief or disappointment I hear?

I need to find out tomorrow whether or not we're moving. Might be good, really.

This song has so many meanings at the moment. *amused*
I feel: crazycrazy-giddy-busy-silly
I hear: SheDaisy - "Lucky 4 You (Tonight I'm Just Me)"

Mmmmmm Reza's. I haven't been there in forever (forever = approximately 10 years). My pal taraljc took me there on one of my trip's back to Chicago. Most excellent food.

I'm looking forward to your posting re: females, hormones and internet relationships. :)

It was really, really good and of course I had enough left over that I was eating it the rest of the week. :))

I think you may be the only one who is. *snickers*

I love Persian food -- there are few good ones in Manhattan but I don't get into the City proper enough. *pouts* Now I'm craving it.

LOL Well, you know, I'm really weird!

I really don't feel any need to censor myself when talking about my relationship. Neither do I feel like I'm in a fish bowl. It just feels normal.

Same here - though I note that (a) I've known no different and (b) of course some things are going to be right for some people and not right for others and both are of course OK.

However, every time I read about a speedbump in the romantic path of a friend on LJ, sometimes which is just a check and sometimes which is a roadblock, it causes me to wonder about my own progress, because these other folk are often as competent, emotionally sound, dedicated and effortful as anyone could want or imagine. Still, that's not going to stop me from throwing myself into this with my full heart and body and soul, and I'm prepared to risk massive heartbreak. It has been worth it already, and I can't imagine it not being worth it.

Again, really not at all what I'm referring to - but that whole censoring myself thing continues to kick in, so... we'll just see whether or not I decide to actually put it all out there at some point or not. *shrugs*

I believe that if you think about this a bit longer, you'll see the huge, glaring difference between your situation and mine.
Sophie: Emma Caulfieldsophie10 on August 14th, 2005 10:05 am (UTC)
I can't, no. Long distance is long distance. And yeah mine worked out and I moved in with him but it doesn't mean it's perfect all the time. Also I have the added issues of a seven year old and an ex-wife. And a whopping great age gap.

*sigh* You're almost there, but I really can't explain further at this point.

RP giddiness you say? *smirks*

But yes, we should make this a project! Or a goal! Or a... something...

Need more sleep! ;)

Oh, and I keep on forgetting to tell you- if you'd like a copy of "Ready to Go" by Republica, I can send it somehow! :*
Vicki: Smirk!hermorrine on August 13th, 2005 10:12 pm (UTC)
Why yes! But I'm sure you'd know nothing about that. ;P

*makes note in Palm: Work on a plan for sleep.* ;)

Ooooh, really? Would adore you even more than I already do if you could! :*
Rachel/Chavalahchavalah on August 13th, 2005 10:54 pm (UTC)
I remain cute and innocent. :D

*makes note in cell phone memo book once I learn how to use it* Try sleeping more when you have to get up early as well!

Er... well yousendit is strange and foreign to me... (though I could try putting in effort and figuring it out *blush*) but perhaps I could email, or send through y!m?
Vicki: Tonks!Puff by PotterPuffshermorrine on August 13th, 2005 11:10 pm (UTC)
*snorts* *coughs* *hacks* Right. Sure. ;)

Yes, well... since I work what are essentially West Coast hours it both makes it easier and more difficult, you know? But I am not a morning person, period. Blech.

Yousendit is really, really easy and is probably the best option - I can walk you through it later if you'd like?

No worries - I was teasing anyway. Although I'm still a bit weirded out that the song came out when you were in junior high. *boggles*
