Before the storm

Fringe Festival successful.  Seven shifts in Front of House Prep, nine or ten shows (depending on how you count). Merch and other goodies (including a hand-carved bone spaceship to celebrate Spaceship Man by Sound and Fury), lotta fun counting money and hassling people on and off the walkie. New friends made, old friends renewed.  Team Leader BBQ tomorrow, the semblance of a social life.

I spent Monday getting a massage and taking it relatively easy, in spite of the fruitflies taking over my apartment.  Tuesday noonish I went to the office and took care of a lot of stuff.  Tonight I stayed home and dithered, finally taking care of most of my backlogged e-mail correspondence as much as I'm going to.  (I still owe an editor a response on a revision of a revised manuscript, but I have to read (again) first.)

So tomorrow, I have an appointment with the endocrinologist, then perhaps breakfast and re-reading said paper, then some other work for which I might make it to the office if I really, really have to, and then the VTL BBQ.  No one wants to go to the zoo with me in the afternoon, so I'll probably skip unless something happens between now and then. 

Other stuff I need to remember to do soon: make a dentist appointment (it's been more than a year); clean the kitchen and hopefully get rid of the fruit flies once and for all; well, clean the whole apartment; get my list o' grad students and e-mail contacts on that front settled and set up; update the department website with next year's courses; update my website with a new spectrogram (for the first time in a year and a half; and the usual.

Argh.
