Back to Work

How the hell is it Monday already?!

While I’d love to say that this 5-day weekend absolutely flew by (and right now it kinda feels like it did), I can’t really say that it did.  It was a good one, though.  But then, who in their right mind can say that a 5-day weekend isn’t a good one?  I had plenty of relaxation time, but now it’s time to get my ass back in gear for the week.

I’m almost done with the copy for the website I started on Wednesday night; I’ll finish that up tomorrow evening.  That’s the main thing that’s niggling at the back of my mind.  This copywriting gig is like having homework or a paper to write for school all over again.  But at least I’m getting paid.  Speaking of, I have to find out how and when that’s going to happen.  I’ve been working for this company for about a month now and have “verified” three or four pay periods already on the online system.  I don’t see an option for “send me a fuckin check”, and neither will the system let me put my bank account information in for direct deposit.  The resolution of that issue will be paramount for me this week.

This past weekend I read American Gods by Neil Gaiman.  I highly recommend it.  I have to say that it was quite a wonderful experience to get lost in the world of fiction again.  I probably spent a good 12 hours reading this weekend and it was glorious.  I’m sure that, on some level, that’s also good exercise for my brain.  Or maybe relaxation for my brain?  I don’t know, but it sure felt good.

And where, by the way, did 2009 go?  Today is the last day of November.  Huh.  Go figure.

Here’s the deal for December:

12/2:  Full Moon, possible drum circle.

12/19:  Fractured Films with the doods from Smoothe Moose.  Here’s the facebook event (I’ll be there).

Um…I don’t know what happens here in the middle of the month (yet).

12/26:  First Saturday after 12/22, which means that it’s officially winter for the Catskill 3500 Club and I’ll be in the mountains every weekend from now until 3/22/2010.

This also means that I need to get back to my hike-scheduling efforts.  I have the first couple of weekends planned out, but I need to figure out how I’m going to get those 27 mountains climbed in 13 weekends.  I need to lay them all out on a calendar and noodle out how it will all work; I can’t afford to decide Friday night where I’ll be hiking on Saturday anymore.  It also means that I have about three weeks to get myself in a little bit better hiking shape than I’m in right now.  Frig, I hate running.
