Checking it twice?

I've been very nice this year.

I know it's ridiculous for 28 year olds to post a Christmas list but I can't help it. Lists can be efficient. I want stuff. Some of the readers of this blog will get me stuff. Last year, among other awesome gifts, I received Patchouli soap and cutting boards. I am excited about all gifts but if you are looking for suggestions...
  1. Good fiction. I've come to accept that no matter how much schoolwork I have, I still read for pleasure throughout the semester. Here are a few of my favorite books (A Cafe on the Nile, A Game of Thrones, Ender's Game, Atlas Shrugged, The Monkey Wrench Gang).
  2. Pseudo Intellectual Non-fiction. I haven't read much of what's trendy this past year. I enjoyed Guns Germs and Steel, The Tipping Point, Fooled By Randomness.
  3. Books by thinkers on the meaning of life. I have been wrestling a lot recently with questions concerning happiness, the meaning of life, and humanity's obligation to one another.

  4. Warm (non turtleneck) sweaters that look old school. I love sweaters made of wool and/or cashmere. The fatter the waistline the better (size medium)
  5. A subscription to Communication Arts, Spin, or Paste magazines.

  6. Black bomb-proof gaiters like these.
  7. Your favorite cds or either of these: The Gossip Music For Men, Muse The Resistance
  8. A balaclava
As they say on Ebay, thanks for looking!

Went to bed with a tight back.
Woke up with a migraine, 3 out of 10 but threatening.
Took hot shower, stretched till the water ran cold.
Rolled on the back roller, stretched till my morning tamale was warm.
Took two Exedrin Migraine (generics) and headed to work.

Felt 100% better when I picked up a football and went outside.
No bets tonight. Corp has moved to the fake $$ realm.

I am moving

My lease ends in January. I am looking for a new place to rent in south boulder. This has potential:

$230 Dining Room in Sunny 2bd Apt (util. incl) (Table Mesa & Foothills)

I'm looking for a 25-35 yr old male or female to go in on a six month commitment to a really nice, spacious, spik and span clean, sunny south facing 2 bedroom apartment off baseline near Foothills. Your space would be in the dining room area which is as big as the bedrooms in the place. We would set up curtains around it and make some house rules about when the nearby kitchen area was off limits, so you could have quiet/private times. This is not for everyone, but if you're not too fussy and need to save some money, it would work. I am a 31 year old female teacher/dancer/poet, have lived all over the world and am new to the area. The other roommate is a 29 year old male massage student. Neither of us have any furnishings, so if you have a ton of stuff, all the better, and if not, then we will enjoy a perfect minimalism. We both have regular part-time jobs, and then do other stuff on the side. We're not going to rent the place until we have all the roommates lined up, so if you're interested - jump in! Thanks for reading!

Today I got (nicely) called out on a few things at work. It felt great. I like to be challenged and I like structure. I do best with clear goals and clear deadlines. This helps me know when I've accomplished them and when I can feel good about getting things done.

I am very excited to go to work tomorrow.
