Helped friends move this morning. And afternoon. And 'til dark. And a little after :-)

I'm definitely getting stronger, moving furniture's not nearly as hard on me as it was. A good thing. Getting in shape gives me a weird sort of second adolescence, getting used to my body again. I apparently shake people's hands comically hard. I had no idea until Jim's girlfriend told me... :-) Good to know this kind of thing, though.

Afterwards we went out to Ming's (in Palo Alto, like the houses we moved from and to). Then six of us, including the hosts, got two tubs at Watercourse Way, one with steam room and the other with sauna. Ah...

Anyway, just back from that. And I have nothing scheduled for tomorrow. I can't even begin to say how cool that is. The combination of the job hunting, the negotiating, and giving bad news to all the good friends I work with is just sucking the life out of me. There's so much I should be doing that I'm not...

Anyway. Today's good. Tomorrow will be good. In a month, things will probably be generally good again. I'm just a wuss about this again after things being pretty much okay for the last few months. A couple of days of the kind of Hell I was going through a year or two ago and I'd remember how good I've got it now.

So things aren't bad, I'm just feeling a little irritable and kind of drained.

Anyway.

It's been a pretty good day. Slept late. Gave a good massage. Did lots of laundry. I'm cooking chicken right now, enough for tonight and most of the coming week. Went for a run in the park near my house. Did a little work on the MUDLib and applied to put it up on SourceForge -- I'm probably a shoo-in for a spot, though that's not saying much one way or the other.

Didn't vacuum. Still have to call Jesse and tell him I'm leaving Palm. He wasn't there the first time.

I'm tired, me.

There's this weird interplay between satisfaction and sex and motivation. And I've talked to enough people about the horniness graphs in Cryptonomicon to know that it's in the ugly gray zone of topics that most people would rather get upset by than think about.

The trick is figuring out which of those topics are just distasteful, and which ones are where you find what's really going on.

Man. I need to make more time for reading hypnotism books. Just like all the other things I need to make time for. I wonder what turns out to actually be important, when all's said and done?

Oh -- and a girl at work who's only known me for a couple of months saw my ID badge and said, "is that a picture of you"? I said yes, it was, but it was a couple of years old.

Nice to have the occasional reminder that I'm doing something right.
