Good

  • Sunny but chilly – has spring finally been sprung?
  • Meyer lemons and crepes
  • Nurse Jackie. Hate her. Love her. Hate her for what she did to O’Hara
  • Planning some post-EXAMS! meet-ups with friends & family in London
  • Boiled eggs & soldiers for breakfast

Less good

  • EXAMS! SEMINARS! PANIC!
  • Too tired to stay up for The Good Wife
  • Tried to trim my hair myself: passable if a little wonky

The good

  • Downloaded two new books (Complaints by Ian Rankin and the latest Maisie Dobbs mystery) just need to catch-up with school work so I can read them
  • Baked a blood orange & olive oil cake
  • Castle is really growing on me, and new The Good Wife tonight (when is this March Madness over?)

The bad

  • Alex is helping someone move tonight so no tea and cake till he gets back. It’s almost 9pm – boo!
  • Nasal congestion reaching the point where I need to get some of those Breathe Right strips
  • Tomorrow night’s drinks with the girls just got rain checked and I am secretly pleased as I want to work on an essay plan instead
  • EXAM! panic

Good

  • Last night’s Chuck slayed it when Chuck disarmed a bomb with apple juice and Awesome’s pep talk to Mrs. Awesome
  • Remembered choc cake in freezer (am turning into a squirrel ferreting food away)
  • Caught up with two seminars so only one left to tackle tomorrow before essay time
  • Chinatown lunch date tomorrow

Meh

  • Day light saving has kicked my ass
  • Might need to find a new chiro as I’ve got intermittent hip pain that wakes me at 4am
  • Exam panic
  • Why has The Event not been canceled?

W00t

  • Second essay is done (and I managed to work in Jersey Shore as modern day comparison to Germanic barbarians!), and I can leave behind the Romans for Spartan ladies!
  • Crepes with strawberries and Nutella, and The Good Wife tonight
  • Hair cut and color tomorrow (postponed from last week because hairdressers are scared of snow)
  • Growing to like Law & Order: UK (I think it’s the Jaime Bamber factor)

Meh

  • Crushed under the weight of school work, and so behind
  • It’s cold, and windy so the windows are rattling
  • Nasal congestion has morphed into nasal drip down the back of the throat – ugh

W00t

  • I’ve got over 2,000 words on my Antigone essay so tomorrow I just need to edit and tighten my argument(s)
  • Over lunch I listened to the latest episode of BBC Radio 4 comedy ‘Ed Reardon’s Week’ about a struggling and cantankerous writer so funny. Actual laugh out loud moments – his dealing with his “literary agent” Ping are gold!
  • Watched the latest episode of Showtime’s Episodes, and it still going strong in its crazy meta show-with-in-a-show. Kudos for them getting Matt Le Blanc to play an alternate version of himself and poke fun at Joey
  • A kitten called Sparta

Meh

  • The Good Wife lost out to watching Chopped live tonight as he-who-pays-the-rent makes the final decision (not really a “meh” as I can use TGW as my carrot tomorrow and I am kind of tired)
  • Yet another snow storm is heading this way. It’s like being trapped in Narnia – always winter and never Christmas
  • 9am hair appointment tomorrow which means an early start, and dependent on the weather (but I’ve got a Groupon and I can pick up egg custards from Chinatown so that is a win)
  • Feeling yuk because I am only working out once a week but trying to fit in long walks where possible, and sneaky Tracy Anderson arm workouts
  • Need to start drafting a post for my uni blog but all I can think about at the moment are my essays!

Good
– New beginnings & refocusing energies
– Leverage on DVD & trying to figure out the twist
– Falling in love (again) with the beauty of NYC through White Collar
– Getting my mojo back
– Three days to freedom

Bad
– Uncertainty
– Heat, humidity & thunderstorms
– The shoutiness of Hell’s Kitchen

W00t

  • Alex comes home tonight and wont be traveling for the foreseeable future
  • Tracy Chapman
  • Caprica
  • Moving in less than 2 weeks

Meh

  • My head hurts from the cold walk home. Regular hat was not enough should have worn my snow boarding one
  • Shrove Tuesday has been postponed until tomorrow when Alex is home
  • Too tired to stay up and work on my essay
  • Nothing on TV for the next few weeks. Roll on March
