today is the day

today I promise I will shower. I have to go to berkeley today so before I go I will clean myself up a bit. yesterday was such a productive day that I feel I deserve multiple accolades but all I get is another day in which to get things done. I think I will let the dissertation rest and just do web stuff. if I don't hear from the fellow that administers the rhetoric web server I'm going to have to call him on his cell phone which of course fills me with terror. I need to conserve klonopin for teaching next week so it may be that I take one tomorrow, write more, call him, then somehow grit my teeth till next wednesday.

the last two nights I've been getting this massive anxiety in the evening and I don't know exactly what that is about except that there are plenty of things for me to be stressed out about. but I'm going to have to surf it because teaching trumps all in the anxiety category.

it will be good to have lisagail back on the west coast after today. I miss our IM conversations in the mornings and become a little rudderless without them.

so I'll sit and then shower and then off I will go to the east. apparently it could rain all day which means I have to decide what sort of rain gear to go with. since I've stopped wearing black all the time my black rain shell doesn't go with my entire wardrobe anymore. I hate leaving the house un-color-coordinated but one must stay dry. I still don't do umbrellas and maybe that is the last bastion of adulthood that I will leave unstormed because the things just seem to me to be an encumbrance. they're no good in the wind and you have to figure out where to put them and then you have to remember where you put them and one hand is always in the service of your umbrella when it's up which leaves only one hand for coffee and snacks and no hands to open doors with.

this is when I miss the seattle rain and the marvelous way it doesn't really get you wet.
