Two days into the long weekend (or possibly two and a half, because there was that night that just passed, and you can draw your own conclusions about the fact that it's noon and I'm not officially counting any of this day as having happened yet), and I have been very, very productive. Which is to say, very productive for me on a weekend, which is probably equivalent to not particularly productive for most of you.
Friday night I spontaneously did my taxes at 8 o'clock at night! And then I did them again, because the result was exactly what I got last year, originally, before I discovered that extra zero that made my return much, much smaller. So I was a little paranoid. But it's all good, hooray.
I also randomly cleaned out my closet on Friday, and created a small pile of things to go to Goodwill, and a much larger pile of things that are too small but I refuse to believe that I will never be able to wear again. And then yesterday I found clothing storage bags that go under the bed, and they exactly fit the amount of clothing I had to store, *and* perfectly fit under the bed, between the boxes, despite my lack of measuring before I went to the store. HaHA! To recap: project conceived, started and finished within 24 hours. This has possibly never happened before.
In between that there was brunch with lovely people, including DramaPrince (who was in fact the quietest person at the table), and also a trip to Electronics Store of Doom, where I attempted to make sense of the fact that the 8G iPod Nano is basically the same price as the 30G iPod and how am I supposed to know what I want? Poor sanity_clause
, who attempted to help me through my confusion. I really did think that I'd decided just what I wanted an mp3 player for, but clearly not.
I also, once again, attempted to fix my wireless, but I just cannot connect to the site where (I think) you set everything up. At least, it's the first step in all the fixes, so I assume it's important. Also, my instruction manual seems to have disappeared. And sadly, my router isn't being supported anymore, so the D-Link support people wouldn't help me. FINE THEN. I'm still mulling what to do about this, so we'll just file this one under "attempted to be productive even though didn't actually get to cross anything off the to-do list".
And this morning, I took my laundry downstairs even before I had breakfast. Hardcore. Normally I can barely sit upright before breakfast.
And now I'm going to clean something. Possibly my window ledges. And, of course, listen to my neighbours. Sigh.
(Note: if you're counting things I actually did here, and thinking, "Damn, that's barely productive at all!", I did do a few less exciting things like go to the library and buy groceries. Don't worry.)
