grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

this weekend
tripping over myself
overworked, underappreciated
wisdom from the side of a fridge
the first day of fall
film review: Darkness
paddling the day away
where did the week go?
seeking advice
a suggestion to the Illinois Tollway

knit me more time...
Monday, October 03, 2005

Last week wasn't the best week (to say the least). By the time I took the bus home on Friday all I was pretty worn out and not at all looking forward to spending the weekend in my own personal hell (studying for statistics). I diligently spent Friday night studying, but also wound up indulging in some online shopping first. I don't like actually shopping in stores and I really, really don't like the mall, but I like shopping online. Especially for computer stuff and books. It was pay day, and I found myself ordering the next 2 books in the Mary Russell series along with a few books for class. Then I ordered a mighty mouse and an itrip for my ipod (so I can stop listening to Madison radio stations replay Hotel California and Money every 10 minutes while I drive around town). Then, I ordered a few bumperstickers. We took our election stickers off a while ago, and have had a blank bumper for a couple months. Soon we will have stickers that say "defend democracy: impeach bush," "war is not pro-life" and one that says "Coexist" will all kinds of different religious symbols. I've also been cooking a lot more- experimenting with meals so things don't get boring. I also like to spend time cooking when I feel stressed out as it just slows the day down a bit. When we went to Trader Joe's a few weeks ago I got a bunch of jars of their great pasta sauces, and a box of frozen breaded eggplant (only $2 for a huge box). It turns out that the breaded eggplant, sauce, shredded parmesan and rolls make yummy, quick, cheap, eggplant parmesan open-faced sandwiches. So those were my indulgences this weekend. And I met with a statistics study group yesterday. That was the most productive 4 hours I've ever spent studying for stats (despite our fair amount of complaining about how much we hated doing it- at least we all felt the same- misery loves company).
