I’m going through another phase of “can’t be bothered” when it comes to updating LJ. There are any number of things I could be commenting on, but when I think about doing it: “meh.”
I started my on-call week on Friday, and my weekend was almost totally screwed up. I put in 8 hours of work on Saturday (yay for overtime), and got woken up at about 3:30am on both Saturday morning and this morning. About the only things I accomplished besides work was doing a lot of laundry (and actually folded most of it!), installing the new ceiling light fixture in the kitchen, dinner with mrimp, and a lot of time logged in City of Heroes and World of Warcraft.

This morning a coworker commented that it “looked like I’d packed on a few pounds”. For someone who has zero personal interest in my appearance to give an unprompted comment about my weight was a real eye-opener (and jaw-dropper). The spinach salad I just had for lunch was quite yummy, and the trip to the gym directly after work will be extra sweaty.

My sister sent me new pictures of my nephew last night and, now that he’s had time to dry out and unwrinkle, is much cuter than when he was “fresh-squeezed”. Women always seem to proclaim newborn (I mean REALLY newborn) babies as “cute”. I don’t see it at all. No matter how blindingly radiant they may become within a week or two, I can hardly call the initial puffy pink prune state “cute” by any stretch of the imagination.

…and I just realized that there’s a meeting in our Warren office building that I was supposed to be at, like, NOW. Time to go…
