"Busy" level increasing exponentially as I try to get as much work done as possible before I leave on my trip next week. Sent out Inklings late last night. Today I am trying to (1) cope with usual slew of post-Inklings email (2) revamp Inklings page (3) prepare some promo material to take to the conference with me (4) pack for California since Jeff & I are going to Detroit this weekend so he can meet his new niece Olivia for the first time and I'll only have one day home next week before I have to leave (5) figure out what to get Sara for her birthday! her birthday party is on Sunday (6) working on a database problem in my guidelines library, need to get work on this started before I leave! (7) pack for Detroit (8) get a camera battery (9) try not to stress out too much (HA! HA!)...eating the last of the chocolate truffles I stole from Mark Osier helped. :-)

Going out on a date with my friend Craig tonight. (hi Jeff! :-))

Officemusic: COWBOY (Erasure).

UPDATE: Ok, I was only kidding about going out on a date tonight!! I'm still happily married!! Everyone can stop sending me nuptial condolences and biblical references now. Craig's an old friend (in terms of how long we've known each other, not in terms of age) with whom I have been sadly out of touch, so we've decided hang out a bit this evening. Going to see a movie with other friends after dinner...I think it's called "Something About Mary", with Cameron Diaz. Should be fun.

I'm thinking about getting a tattoo.

I need a holiday.
