this is just to say...  
I had a great weekend. I sat down on Saturday and went through baskets of papers that I'd accumulated over the past year--piles and piles of old bills, stock reports, loan notifications, debt consolidation offers, miscellany. I threw away three bags full of crap (THREE BAGS), relishing the shredding and the ripping and the tossing. I classified and attached related documents together with little binder clips, and set all my tax-related stuff aside for when I finally manage to go to my accountant.

And then on Sunday? *dramatic rising music* I worked out. (WORKED OUT!!!) For the first time in months. I shot baskets and treadmilled for a while. And I brought my gym bag to work today.

I also returned a nonworking lamp I'd had sitting around for months, went and got groceries Sunday night, though I was wiped out from working out, and did a load of laundry. The only thing I didn't do this weekend that I'd vaguely planned to was attend the local bash. *waves regretfully to Seattle peeps*

Oh. And I ate Peeps. *g*

Today I have to write annual performance reviews. Quite possibly all day. :-P But I'm going to just put on my headphones and plow through it, like a dolphin through the stormy waves, like a freshman through Finnegans Wake, like a New York cabbie through heavy traffic. I have iced tea, Gobstoppers, and a plastic Buddha. I think I'm set.

ETA: Unrelated to anything else in this post, does anyone know who the artist is (and what the remix name is) for the song "The Gambler" that was used on Alias in that great Sydney and Marshall scene in "Repercussions"?

Yay you for the productivity! and the working out! I did that for the first time in a while, too, both Saturday and Sunday and I'm going to do it again today. Really. *whimpers*

Rodney approves of you.

I'm so glad to see you've had a good week-end. :)

And I'd like to take this opportunity to say that I recently read your post-A Hundred Days story, which I absolutely adored.

Mmmmm, Jack. :)

Very well done with the crap clearage and the out-working!
And plastic Buddha - is just so wrong in a right kind of way.

*smooshes you*

I adore sorting and *throwing away*!
Makes me feel good.

Yay, you!

Yay for working out! I am just back from the gym, myself.

I don't watch Alias, but I have a great version of that song by Mike Doughty, former front man of Soul Coughing. Perhaps that's the one?

Ohhh, cool! That's not it--the version on the show is actually a rap-style remix. But I *love* song covers, and this one is awesome. Thank you! :D

Go you! *carefully doesn't look at own piles of half-cleaned stuff*

Ooooh. *is in awe of your productivity skills*

Me, I'm not looking at the several bagfuls of paper crap in my corners, mind. *whistles nonchalantly*

Whoo! It's good to hear that you're feeling better. And that's a lot of wonderfully impressive productivity, too. Go you!
