I just wanna have something to do tonight

Living: In a mixed state between "like a motherfucking grownup" and "why can't I get my shit together". Was meant to have a house inspection last week and tidied up for it, then the agent didn't have a key that worked so now he's coming again tomorrow. In which time the house has got messy again. Dammit.

Working: Not much. I lost some notes for one project and had to arrange a Skype call to figure it all out again, sigh. Had meetings in Melbourne last week which went well, including one which re-enthused me about another project. But overall I've been short on motivation and organisation and I really need to a) do some billable hours to pay rent, and b) get shit moving on Growstuff, as there's a handful of features just sitting in limbo. Stupid brainweasels, sigh.

Playing: Went to a punk gig in the 'Rat the other night. Small venue (back room of a pub), two bands, pretty good times but I'm definitely missing Gilman *sob* Joined the gym last week and went swimming; I'm seeing a trainer for an assessment etc next week and going to do some sessions with her (functional fitness, weights, etc). Got out the electric guitar to play around with it a bit, but I need to acquire a little practice amp again before I can do much with it.

Reading: Comfort reading, mostly fic I've read before (same as last week).

Watching: Watched some of Orphan Black with [personal profile] were_duck, otherwise not much.

Listening: (new item added to the list) Got around to listening to the not-actually-new-anymore FOB album and had it on repeat for a few days -- I love about half of the album and don't hate the other half. Today I've been fiddling with my iTunes playlists a lot to make more women show up in my "Radio Skud" mix. I think I need to make some new playlists for work and and for evening chillout/bedtime.

Wearing: (new item added to the list) I added this to the list not because I'm wearing anything particularly interesting (tshirt, hoodie, trackpants, uggs) but because I got an awesome haircut last week and it's making me very happy. It's not quite Jedward but it definitely started there and wound up somewhere around "messy quiff". I love my hairdresser in Melbourne, who can roll with that sort of thing without making a big deal of it, never uses shampoo on my hair, understands the pure, perfect bliss of a #1 clipper job that will stay at the perfect fuzzy pettable length for at least a week, and only charged me for a "men's" haircut. So good. Oh also, this is a pretty fab sports/binding bra if you like that sort of thing.

Making: Not much this week. Bread -- I'm gradually converting Rocky the sourdough starter over to wheat flour (from rye). I made some very tasty stir fry the other day. Little bit of knitting but not much. Craft night here on Tuesday.

Health: New therapist continues awesome. We've been talking a lot about gender, and about my mother (who died when I was little). As mentioned above, joined the gym, which in my head is more "playing" than "health", but I thought it would be worth a note that I've been reading up on lordosis (based on a chance comment about pattern modification on a vintage sewing blog!) which seems to describe my particular type of pelvic tilt/uneven waistline/back curvature and might be something to look into ameliorating through exercise/stretching, so I'll mention that to $trainer when I see her next week. Oh and I think I might be getting a UTI, which meant a wander up to the pharmacy this morning for some cranberry pills and shit. Hopefully it won't do much of anything if I catch it early enough. I'm pleased with myself for spotting the discomfort early, too -- last time I didn't figure out what it was until I was really sick and feverish, because I didn't/don't get the burning pee thing, just some tenderness in the general region and a run-down feeling. Speaking of run-down feeling there has been a lot of lounging around and not doing much, which I am trying not to beat myself up over. Though it would be nice to get some energy/motivation back one of these days.

I'm not sure! Getting your code to compile perfectly on the first try. The best chocolate chip cookies in the universe. Sun warmed kitten fur. That kind of stuff :)
