Ick. I really need to make that car appointment so I can get the transmission flushed. Hopefully it'll take like an hour and I can just go and wait there instead of having to make the long bus ride from there and back.

Much better mood than yesterday, likely because of the meeting last night. No music practice but everyone was in a good mood. I think everyone got a bit teary though when our mayor gave her the mayor's favour even though she didn't authorize on the weekend; I was really surprised that Charles actually accepted his since he won't accept an AoA- I guess it's different when the token isn't an arms-giving award. He's certainly done plenty of work to deserve one, even aside from the fact that he probably has the record of not receiving an AoA and should have accepted one by now. I hope they put a description of what it is on the new website when it's done- it would be nice to know what the exact reason for it is since it seems to be given out kind of like an AoA but not official (well, that and it's cloth). 'course I could just ask, but I hate doing that- the whole concept of awards in the SCA is still a bit of a sore point and I tend to get a bit tense when discussing them (gee, can you tell that I'm a bit bitter that my old group ignored anyone who had also been a member of the university group, even though there were several people who did huge amounts of work on things; I probably didn't do enough, but they sure did and they should have gotten recognition. It's too bad that most of them are no longer around)
Okay, time to stop bringing up bad memories. I'm just glad my new group actually thinks about its members and doesn't hold grudges on stupid things- I'm really glad that those people were recognized last night. :>

Oh well

I finally got around to looking for anigael on LJ (considering I haven't searched for her on MSN yet even though I've known for a while that she's on it; I guess I would have done that if I actually turned on my MSN more often, though I doubt that'll happen anytime soon- I hate having depression. I don't like being so tired that other things fall by the wayside while I try and drag myself to do things). Unfortunately I can't respond to her posts, so I'll have to email her and let her know I'm on it- I'll be more likely to check LJ anyways since I can do it at work.

It's looking like it's going to be one of those days where I can't wait to get out of here....
Maybe I'll cut out a bit early today- I do still have those extra hours from helping out at that concert a couple of weeks back, and I shouldn't have a problem getting my current requests done...

Whoa

Okay, now I understand why Gwerydd said she cried at the end of reading LOTR (but I'm at work right now, so I'm trying not to be teary) even though I knew what would happen (the ship part is one of the few things I can remember from that old cartoon). You'd think I would have finished the books sooner, but one of the annoying things about my work is that I never feel like reading anymore.

Man, this LJ thing is way too much fun- it's just too tempting not to write stuff! (and helps me from sending bored emails to people all day ;)

Got the ticket for the weekend concert. It's a comp, so I'm not as pissed as I was before, but unfortunately the fact that I'm being 'encouraged' to go (especially now that I've heard there's another concert that night that friends are going to since the singer is a SCAdian) has pretty much hurt any chances of me really truly enjoying the concert.

Ick. Now onto that dreaded annual reports file...

Well, here's a bit of nice news...

Apparently Honda isn't going to charge me for the transmission flush, only for the oil change. Yippee! (then again, I guess it's more because they just replaced the thing so they want it to work properly so I don't have to get them to fix it later; in any case, it's nice to hear that, especially when I get to drop it off tonight and pick it up tomorrow, so I'm not looking forward to the bus ride)

I REALLY miss Rob.

I've been thinking about him all day, probably since his defense is coming up at the end of the week- it only reminds me more that it won't be a while until he knows if he'll be coming back for more than just a visit in April.

I hate this. I don't want to date anyone else. I don't like not knowing if we can get back together (okay, other than when he comes for that visit in April- that can't come soon enough). There are so many things I miss about him (and I'm not going to mention some of them here ;), but I think what I miss most is just being being hugged or cuddled by him.

Feeling a bit better. Got to chat with Rob for a short bit before he went to watch the new Hornblower movie. Still really miss him being around though.
