Going to the gym. I've resolved to try and do more than just yoga to keep in shape, but dear god treadmills make me feel like I'm a gerbil.

Homework. I mean, my professor's even given us the rest of the class period to do it...but it's not due 'til Monday, and it won't take me more than 45 minutes, so I'll just wait.

The essay about the first chapter of this book right in front of me. But I can't. It's such a piece of crap I just can't. If one of the fairly major characters in this book had any sense, it should never have been written. I mean, if you're crazily in love with this girl, but her mother's basically saying "No, you can't marry her so bugger off." What would you do? We have a certain phrase around these parts: "It's cheaper to buy a ladder". In this case, I would buy or otherwise acquire some sort of climbing implement and run away with the girl. Failing that, I might kill the mother (well, the tradition is that the last-born daughter takes care of the mother until the day she dies, no?). But what does this idiot do? He marries the sister. The ugly, quiet and annoying (and later obese) sister, no less.

I could write another essay, but that's a comparison of two poems by Margaret Atwood. Both poems of hers I've seen so far are trite. Liberally peppered with needlessly ambiguous language, metaphors taken waaaaay too far and confusing switches of imagery and narrative. And not to mention the fact that I turned in the last essay a day late, and if I don't do the essay tonight, I'll just have to do it tomorrow since I have another bloody lesson then.

Why does IB English have to suck so much? =(

Oh, and add to all that the fact that NaNoWriMo is still going on, and that I need to prepare stuff for Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day I feel rather swarmed with crap I need to do right now. All I want to do is watch QI, Gattaca and Monty Python and play Oblivion =(

Nothing! I just realized - I don't take anything from work to my home, I don't have school now (annoying strike), so I can do anything I want! Of course, during school time, I just avoid doing homework and do this instead. Now I don't feel bad about it, though.

- Implementing the last of the Phase 2 enhancements to my company's BI system
- Fixing the remaining bugs in the BI system
- Reviewing my junior colleague's progress on getting together a fairly tricky one-off report
- Checking if the scheduler adjustments I made in the test environment worked, so I can do the equivalent in production instead of turning off the scheduler altogether to disable it for this weekend
- Raising a new issue in the log for a change my boss wants me to implement
- Thinking about the design changes required for the next phase
- Having lunch, since it's now 13:40

Is it any wonder I'm browsing fora instead? :mrgreen:

I should be developing the curriculum for the three web design seminars I will be teaching come January. I get paid for the development, and I'm broke, so it should really be priority number one. But it's not due immediately and I did a lot of research for it yesterday, so right now priority number one is browsing the fora. Priority number two is lunch.
