this week has been so crazy. I've got a million things to say, and no time to say them. i thought being more productive at work was supposed to *reduce* my stress level! :(
but, fast update:
I did see LOTR yesterday - mixed feelings. More detailed review later sometime (yes, I'll cut for spoilers).
parents actually stopped by monday night to say hi; they're coming down for a while sunday afternoon, and are planning to stick in at least one other visit before they leave. so I don't feel so ignored now. thanks to all those pgh folks who "reminded" them to visit me :)
attempting to motivate myself with going home early, but it's not working. grr.
