oh Tuesday, glorious Tuesday!  
Today I can make war upon my coworkers!
Tuesday -- Tiu's day
Middle English tiwesday or tewesday
Old English tiwesdæg "Tiw's (Tiu's) day"
Latin dies Martis "day of Mars"
Ancient Greek hemera Areos "day of Ares"

Tiu (Twia) is the English/Germanic god of war and the sky. He is identified with the Norse god Tyr. Mars is the Roman god of war. Ares is the Greek god of war.
Yep. Can't wait. I have rocks piled up in my cubicle, ready for catapulting.

Yesterday was 15 days without drinking. I threw away my cocktail glass, went to two AA meetings, and worked out a lot. Today there's a midday one downtown that I think I'm going to try, aimed at professional types. My therapist was impressed with my accomplishments during our session yesterday. I am pretty pleased too. Yay team me.

My "vitamin therapy" isn't doing much so far, which is disappointing. Maybe it'll just take more time. I'm also still very ADD at work, which is just maddening. My homework--from therapy--is to schedule time to surf/check LJ during the workday, so that I'm not clicking obsessively while I'm trying to focus on work. Gah. *separation anxiety*

And in more banal news: very very tired of this weather. I'm ready for a warm and consistent spring. Come the hell on, Seattle.

Okay, my mission, right. Focus. On. Work. It's not as if I have to surgically remove an implanted bomb from a foreign dignitary at seventy miles an hour while trying to avoid detonation. How hard can this be? *breathes*

This post is just 100% chock full of me again. Apparently a symptom of ADD--which, clincally, I can't really have, because it "doesn't start at age 30", but never mind--is to be "self-centered" and have "immature interests." Maybe in my next life I can be a selfless nun who dedicates herself to caring for the afflicted in a Central American jungle. Yes. That's the plan. Meanwhile, I'll eat bon-bons baby carrots and talk about myself at length.

I'm always in favor of bonbons. In fact, I'm chowing down on Darth M&Ms right now. Yummy.

Yay you!

I'm feeling rather ADD myself today - look at me bouncing around LJ.

I will, no doubt, be back.

I used to tell people who thought I was a vegetarian because I loved animals, "No... I hate plants! I take little baby vegetables and I eat them a l i v e..."

Hee. You are adorable.

Congrats! Keep up the good work.

I'm ready for a warm and consistent spring.

Me too. I can't even watch the weatherman anymore, I just want to spork his eyes out evertime he says it's going to rain again.

Congratulations on the milestone.

Speaking of ADD, I've wondered whether Ritalin might help keep me off LJ at work. Of course I'm not serious, but I've thought about it.

I like 'tewesday'.

Congrats on 15 days. I think that's wonderful.

15 days. Keep at it, you're doing great!

Also, in Spanish, it's Martes, and in French it's Mardi. So, there's your Mars showing up.

Thus inspiring the classic question of New Orleans tourists: "Does Mardi Gras always come on a Tuesday?"

Most excellent work dude! Most excellent! You sound so much chippier in your journal since you started working out again. I want to be a chipper too! (I am quite serious - you sound great and I for one am quite proud of you)
I think we should change Tewesday to lewday and celebrate eliade-written pr0n on those days. What thinkest thou?

Don't know about the vitamins but is there any chance you need iron? I am so prone to anaemia and when I get it my concentration goes, I can't finish sentences and my vocabulary drowns in a sea of something.

Congrats on the dry 2 weeks!
Dude, now if only I could convince MYSELF that I don't want or need that glass of wine with dinner EVERY DAMN NIGHT.

Also, you've inspired me to go running today for the first time in 3 weeks.

Finally, if ADD symptoms are self-centered-ness and immature interests, I'm certainly screwed and not in a good way. I mean, I suffer those problems regularly. Lamest. Symptoms. Ever.

"immature interests."

So, what do they count as "mature interests" I wonder?
Interior design? The merits of various central heating systems?
Chartered accountancy?
Give me immature interests any day.
