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.
