Meeting my boring quota

My goal for the weekend, after about 8:00 Friday evening, was to be externally boring, and I think I can honestly say we're doing a good job. There has been writing, reading, working out, doing PT, cooking, and various and sundry other useful and/or pleasant things. And, I mean, I could chatter away to people about The Dark Knight and Bones S1 and the books I'm reading, but I'll probably do some of that later. Some of the people we want to do stuff with are out of town, and some are busy, and also some of us are unpredictable regarding sleep (just the usual some, there), and we're all sort of tired and peopled out. I was very pleased with having two weeks of 4th St. related stuff, but when push came to shove it had gotten to be time to curl up and not do or say much.

And so yesterday I invoked the 5:00 Rule*, and markgritter made guacamole today, and I think I win at holiday decadence, but just in case that's not enough, there will be grilled sockeye salmon, and I will finish this book I'm reading, and I will play with the doglet's ears, and that's what, really.

It's good timing for a lazy, lazy holiday: the doglet hates the 4th due to feeling under attack, so having quiet, soothing monkeys around is just as well for her. Also the rest of July is looking...a bit like we have a thing or two to do, let's say.

But more on that later. For now I am catching up on correspondence and renewing my zoo membership and other stuff that is quite satisfying from the inside and not the least bit of interest externally. So yay.

*The 5:00 Rule, for those of you who need a refresher course: if you are a morning shower person, and you manage, with this and that, to put off your shower until after 5:00 p.m. and don't have other stuff to do, you win! You are not required to put actual clothes on but can instead put clean pajamas on after your shower and luxuriate in your decadence.
