Memoirs of a Geisha

I have 10 minutes to spare so I thought I'd jot something down here. This weekend I went to the gym. Twice. My sister in law was supposed to come with me on Saturday but there was no one to watch the kids, so I came over so I could borrow her "Memoirs of a Geisha", and go to the gym. After seeing the preview for the movie, I am in a rush to read this book so I can see the movie right when it comes out.

Anyway, I propped up the book on the treadmill and got to work. Reading made a big difference in getting my mind off of the exact amount of time, exact amount of calories, and other information flashing on the screen. I worked out again on Sunday, this time with my sister in law and that was fun. Only 30 minutes on the treadmill this time and then we wandered around working out on different weight machines. Sometimes I am completely motivated and other times I just feel like "blah". I think Sunday was one of those times.

As usual, I worked on homework and completed another online test. I love the fact they are open book because the questions can be tricky. One word is different in true/false statements. Tricky tricky.

Yesterday was work and then the critique of our newsletters in Beginning Layout and Design. I messed up and used a serif font for the body text which is a big no no. Spent an hour in traffic and started another online test when I got home. Midway through I started getting a huge headache. Finished the test with only two wrong (92 percent!) and gulped down two Advil. I must have been exhausted because I fell asleep through the football game for two hours. Then I woke up and did more homework so I didn't get to bed until midnight.

I'm running so fast and I can't believe I haven't received any phone calls from anyone saying, "Do you know you were supposed to be here an hour ago?". Somehow I am getting where I need to go, not missing any appointments, and just on autopilot. I feel like I am on the verge of going insane with so much on my plate at once.

And what do I do? I add more. I have been wanting a gold necklace for a long time and since I can't find it anywhere, I think I'm going to get it custom made. So before class today I checked out a jewelry store and when I was asking the owner to bring out another gauge of gold so I could see the difference between 18 and 20 (the price of gold has gone up!), he tossed it on the counter in front of me. Tossed. So rude and I had to go to campus anyway so I just left it at that for now. I didn't like that at all but there aren't a lot of options. At least I have some idea what it will cost so for now I wait and daydream more about my dream necklace.

Now I'm off to Digital Video Art to work on my culture piece. I have all of the pieces and have no clue how I want to piece them together. Marilyn, I have seen Frida. I think Hayek did a great job and the actor that was Doc. Oc has been in everything! (Still good though)
