Wednesday already?! Ack!
Vacations need to be three times as long, I think. Unless I am traveling I spend the first couple days doing nothing, then I get busy, then I go back to nothing, then I run out of time. So far:Friday
I left work early, went to have dinner with Stephen, then we went to see Neil Gaiman speak at MIT. I've seen him two other times, and he's always entertaining and charming. This was no exception. Alas, they were making a DVD of the lecture series, so no flash was allowed. Pictures not good.

Came home, watched losing baseball. Read.Saturday
I slept late, bought lunch for Mom and I (breakfast food, yum!), then went out to dinner and Indiana Jones with P. Read before bed. Watched losing baseball.Sunday
I slept late, poked around on the computer, opened windows in house, sniffed the pretty air. Read a lot of the day. Watched losing baseball.Monday
I had lunch with P, came home and took the cat outside for a couple hours, poked around with various pictures/blog entries/etc. Read a lot of the day. Wrote long review of Kindle. Not finished. Watched winning baseball.Tuesday
I did chores. Dragged all recycleables off to city yard, picked up Rx for Mom, had lunch, returned cans, cleaned out car, washed car, went to Jiffy Lube, dropped off glasses for new lenses, went to Target, went to food store. At home, made dinner, plugged in fan, read the internet, sorted out receipts, took tags off clothes bought earlier in week and put away. Read a small amount of the day. Had to call Amazon because price on Kindle went down (it's $359 now) and I missed 30 day price guarantee by 3 days. Arg! Was denied. Wrote snippy email. Will see what happens. Watched losing baseball. Life is hard. Manny got home run #499 — just one more and we can go back to normal.Upcoming?
Chores! Many chores! Clean house. Entire house. All laundry. Have to do in the next 4 days, because early Sunday will drive to Provincetown to spend 2 days with S & V. They have rented a gorgeous place right on the water and I want to take pix and hang out with them. I took the wrong week off, so I can only spend Sunday night there, as Tuesday I need to be at work. So it'll be most of Sunday, Sunday night, then all day Monday til I poop out (or they get sick of me -- so maybe early Sunday afternoon!). Here's hoping the weather is good Sunday and Monday.
*I was debating "stand up, sit down, fight fight fight", but I went Bowie instead.
