This Weekend Open Thread is Filled with Glitter

It’s the weekend, so we’re out the door to the real world for a couple of days. Until we’re back on Monday, enjoy this open thread! As special inspiration, it’s double points until Sunday.

Wow, hello Persephone! Life got pretty crazy at the end of last year and over the holidays, but I found my way back here and look at this! Wheeeeeee bells and whistles! What are these points I’m reading about down below? I had all these emails about friending people. I has a confused. Is there a post/thread/link somewhere that explains all this? WHAT IS A UNICORN?!

Who boy. Got lots done today. Even with a 3 hour Skyrim sesh (I just cannot quit. It’s not even that fun anymore!). But I just did a bunch of grad school application stuff and it took way too long. And now I’m freaking out a bit. Because there’s still so much to do (Damn you Skyrim!)! Anybody else have an overwhelming Sunday night list? Like, writing a bazillion words, and I have to do a bunch of reading for a workshop tomorrow and laundry and a paper due two days ago and a head cold and…    oh god oh god. I should go buy some chocolate to soothe my nerves. I’m like Mrs. Bennett right now. Anybody got any good tips for soothing these frayed nerves?

Also, anybody else super into Skyrim? It’s my first go at gaming, and well, I love it. And I especially love that I’m better at it than my boyfriend. Is that lame?

Yep. I got ya. Research proposal I should have sent out to a prof on Friday, read roughly 60 pages in one book (plus endless pages in like four other books), read two articles that I told my lab advisor I’d have read/reviewed last week so we could talk about them, and all manner of data analysis that I didn’t do ALL of last week. Plus I’ve been away from work/the lab for ten days because of an injury, so there is absolutely NOOO excuse in the world for me not having done it all except that napping and NetFlix and a heating pad are a dangerous combination.
