Welcome to la 12 of 12, a place where lives are shared and bad pictures are taken (by me, anyway; I can't speak for others).
12:49 p.m. - So, I was already at work when I realized it was the 12th, and I hated to interrupt my yearlong series of photos of myself waking up. So this is my bed, mysteriously devoid of...me. Anyway, though, it was DARK when I got up this morning, so that's another excuse.
12:55 p.m. - The benefits of coming home for lunch: turkey chili and a quick rendezvous with What Not to Wear. Fabulous!
1:07 p.m. - Awww, mail! It's a postcard from my brother, who took a business trip to Gaziantep in southern Turkey (not as exotic as it sounds; he lives in Turkey).
1:11 p.m. - Back to work!
2:36 p.m. - My editor's super-sekrit stash of Holland mints, from which she graciously lets me graze (in exchange for unlimited copying, mailing, and edit entry)
2:36 p.m. - Don't mind if I do!
3:08 p.m. - Shared iTunes is our friend. (That's The Arcade Fire, there. I'm going to see them in June. Woot!)
5:01 p.m. - The interminable light at San Pablo and the freeway gives me plenty of time to bond with NPR ("I'm Melissa Block, and I'm Mechelle Norris, and this is All Things Considered." And doesn't the theme music sound like the goofy song at the end of the animated Grinch movie?).
8:23 p.m. - Sadly, no rowing pictures this month--the sunset was amazing--but almost as good: the post-crew pile on the bathroom floor!
8:44 p.m. - My new thing: pasta with peas. Add a little bit of Parmesan and some salt and pepper, and it's delicious.
9:27 p.m. - This is an actual documentary about the Australian cane toad, lent to me by a coworker for Cinema Hype-ing puposes. That is one scary-looking little girl. The toads themselves are kind of cute.
9:29 p.m. - What to do during an 80s documentary on amphibians than do a little knitting? Almost...done...
Hasta! Next month: Same bat time, same bat channel. I'll try to remember before noon.
