Ha, I meant not early for me, my normal day starts at 8:30 am. Just trying to clarify that the meeting wasn't scheduled outside my normal working hours but it would have required my usual work to be done earlier. But it was cancelled, so none of that had to happen!

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Another Monday. Well, Spring is approaching, the no-longer surprise hyacinths are blooming, as are the cherry blossoms.

Thanks for that, Consuela! It joins “is the mountain out” as important yes/no questions to answer.

I could not get my shit together today—even though I thought I slept fine I was a wreck all day, yawning and unable to focus. Got lots to do tomorrow and starting early, so hoping I can get over that!! Wondering if it’s a side effect of the new drugs or possibly my body saying “eat more food dumb dumb”

My mental checklist today:

Pharma (pick up meds)
Piggies (they need kibble, also cage cleaning)
Mail (need to send something out Priority)
Surgery
Laundry
Dishes

At 3pm I have to get "clean margins" on the spot where the dermatologist cut out the melanoma on my shoulder. Whee!

Consider doing the chores which require shoulder movement *before* getting surgery on your shoulder.

It doesn't impede my movement, but it does make carrying a backpack tricky.

I hope the weather doesn't make your to do list too challenging, Hec. It's pouring over here, just hearing the rain on the roof is making me want to go to sleep.

Our wings are not tired.

Surgery~ma, with an extra dose of getting the stuff done ~ma.

There is hardly anything better for putting me into a sleep state.

They are testing the fire alarm system in the building, and it is horrible. They don't have an alarm as such but super loud MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE THERE HAS BEEN AN EMERGENCY REPORTED IN THE BUILDING PLEASE EVACUATE THE BUILDING BY THE NEAREST EXIT DO NOT USE THE ELEVATORS - repeated about 20 times already. LOUD I really hope testing an alarm isn't next.

Skinner is not pleased, and neither am I. Also, how many times can they repeat this message. Sigh.

eta: it has been repeating for about 20 minutes now. No end in sight. I think they are going to every unit to make sure we don't have the sprinklers or speakers blocked. They came to me already. I think there are maybe 80 units? Okay, over, I think. It was a full half hour.
