Well, that was a week. Bloody hell. It certainly wasn't all bad -- I mean, I got to see [livejournal.com profile] norwoodbridge on Tuesday night, even, and we went to Staples together -- it was just so fast and long and unrelenting, another week of working until after midnight each night. But to focus on the good things: my self-review, the one in which I'm going for promotion, is submitted. Over with. Done.

After pressing the button I frantically tried to dig out from under a pile of the last week's ignored work until Friday morning, when Patrick Rothfuss came to Zillian to give an author talk (squee!). He was great, and he was going on 2 hours of sleep for extra hilarity. Some of my favorite quotes:
  • "I like to imply more than... exply."
  • "I mean, you can shave a dog, but that doesn't mean... god, this is a terrible analogy."
  • "The personal is not necessarily the important."
  • "It's pronounced 'kuh-THAY'." <--- "It" being the Cthaeh, the bad thing in the tree in book 2.

Last night I remembered -- or, rather, looked up the latest way to -- add a random RSS feed to my LJ page. So today I went over to feedly, which I never actually use, and imported the few things I care to read on LJ, creating some syndicated accounts in the process. Say hello to [livejournal.com profile] robot_hugs and [livejournal.com profile] 3eanuts_rss and [livejournal.com profile] jimsjournal_rss... [livejournal.com profile] dirtynormal already existed. Say goodbye to that random feeling of missing out. No, LJ isn't Google Reader, but it is something I read every day.

Today I returned to my straddle pancake workout, after exactly three weeks off for adductor strain. It was totally fine, and I touched my chest to the floor (but won't be surprised if there's significant regression due to soreness the next couple of times). Front/back split stretching went fine, too. I am unaccountably pleased with my right leg for not being a whiny turd, and with myself for doing the right thing there.
