Since I've been futzing around with my userpics for the past half-hour, I might go ahead and share my boring failyness (spelled that wrong, but it's apropo) with you all.
First, the counseling appointment. Not sure if it was good or not. I really am not the type to share my feelings, and never with total strangers. It was exhausting - I had planned to paint at the Lodge after, but went home and napped for 2+ hours. I was that tired, mentally, after just talking
. I made another appointment, but if the second one doesn't go any better, I won't be going back.
Second, taxes are finally done! We'll be able to take $140 off what we owe on our 2006 federal (which is probably just the accrued interest), we owe $68 to the state...and we are getting $485 from the city! I asked if they would file and refund me if I took the return down to the city income tax division, because I want to do a VICTORY DANCE in their offices. I deserve to, after all the stress of being audited, then being pinged for $300+ for 2006.
He told me I'd better not, but I FEEL VINDICATED. *gives 'em the bird*
Third, t-minus 5 days until the half-marathon of d00m. I can't wait for it to be over.
I've signed up for a 4-miler for April 20th already.
I bought a new mp3 player (of course I would lose my old one when I just bought nice new headphones!) and loaded a ton of songs, have maxcool clothes, good sports bra and my shoes.
Fourth, I heard the new NKOTB single, and wow. Yes. I'll have that
Fifth, I finally got to eat at Noodles & Company
! I've been wanting to try it forever, but it's so popular around here that every restaurant is packed all the time. They have small plates! And salads! And decent pad thai, once you've drowned out the Skippy-flavored peanut butter with some chili sauce.
Finally, I am just finishing Lolita
, and I'm just wowed by it. If you haven't read it, if you were worried about or turned off by the subject matter, I urge you to reconsider and give it a shot. I listened to it (narrated by Jeremy Irons), and yeah, just, wow. The language is beautiful, it's brimming with wit and dark humor, and through it all is a thread of instability that yeah, wow. There is a reason this book is on all of the "best" lists. Next up is Sons and Lovers
by D. H. Lawrence. I'm not up for Ulysses
So, how are YOU doin'?
