Week Twelve: Crashing and Caffing Up

Afraid to say I’ve slacked off a bit with the reading. I had a week-long training at work, with working lunches and late evenings, so that did not leave a whole lot of extra time for reading. Although I did crack the spine of On Writing by Stephen King. Plus I think I am still recovering from The Hunger Games. I wonder if I am ready to delve into Catching Fire.
I spent the week typing up my notes from the last two weeks, which turned out to be quite a lot. Yes, I write longhand and then transcribe into the computer, and after all these years, I’m still not a good typist. High error rate. And I only have a week to make my deadline. I’m going to just laugh now.
I had a blast going with my friend on opening night to see The Hunger Games movie (which was great but I’m still madly comparing it to the book so I need to sort that all out before I can give a fair assessment. What did you think?) On Saturday I crashed. The long week of training caught up with me. On Sunday I woke up fully refreshed and after I lifted weights while watching Nikita (Nikita and Michael forever!), I went to the Chocolate and Coffee Fest at the Albuquerque Convention Center. I’m going to need all the coffee I can get this week, what with trying to make my insane deadline and all. Capped the weekend with the two-hour season 5 premiere of Mad Men. I am so happy it’s back, except, of course, it is just one more show I have to keep up with. I don’t want to spoil anything for those who have not seen it yet, but I will say that if I could just harness a little bit of Joan Harris’ attitude, I could handle my day job just fine.
