Softball party

Late start today, which I hope to remedy tomorrow. I think part of the problem is that there is no clock in view when I am sleeping, so I just keep sleeping as long as I possibly can. I am much more disciplined when I can see a clock.

Busy day at work. I spent two hours this morning on a report that will save someone a few seconds each day. I suppose that over the course of years it will be worth it, but it didn’t seem so this morning. I napped during lunch, and then Kelly called. I helped her figure out an interesting math problem involving M&M’s (yes, the candy) but which I am too tired to get into right now. I didn’t sleep well last night. Kelly says it’s because I did cardio not long before going to bed. In any event, I’m pretty exhausted right now.

When I got home from work, I did some workshop-related stuff. Got the critique of my story idea from our professor and was pleased with his assessment.

No mail of significance today. However, 45 days on “The Golden Watch” at Strange Horizons and still no word. Fingers are crossed.

After work we had our end of year softball party. For the last two years, I won MVP. This year, I was runner up for MVP, but that’s okay, the person who won was much more deserving than I. I had a few drinks, and shortly after 7 PM, I walked home. It was a gorgeous evening, almost cool (for the summer). I called he11o_sunshine and left a message. I called vickyandnorm and spoke to them for the first time since they had the twins. And I called strausmouse and spent 17 minutes or so catching up.

Kelly has gone to the gym, but the shot of Patron and the 22 ounce beer make the gym a no-no for me tonight. I’m going to crawl into bed and read for a little while. Hopefully, I’ll get a better night’s sleep tonight. Anything is better than last night.
