Happy Friday, LiveJournal! I totally bounced out of bed today, half-jogged to work, and got here over an hour earlier than my average. WTF? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm going to an Indigo Girls / Shemekia Copeland concert over lunch with below_the_belt. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that I bailed on a Purim party last night and got to bed before 11. No idea. And to make it stranger, yesterday I was walking around with this black cloud over my head, passing it on to everyone I met. Yesterday was truly awful. I hate March. Ever-changing weather and ever-changing moods. Is it summer yet?

I'm also listening to Shemekia Copeland on my iPod right now. She's so amazing.

I was at JITW last weekend. I'm glad I went, even though it was 9 hours (round-trip) of driving. I fulfilled my goal, which was to not worry too much about meeting new people, but to spend some quality time with a half-dozen or so people I already know who I don't get to see that much. I did that, including a particularly nice re-connection with someone I hadn't seen in almost two years, and I did end up meeting a couple people. Mission accomplished!

Purim's on Monday night. I don't have a costume and I don't know where I'm going, but I want a change of pace from the past few years. Might drive to some shul in the suburbs where I don't know anyone and the focus is on cute kids.

Keep busy keep busy! That's how to not get depressed in March! There's a concert today, improv comedy with Saul and Rachel tomorrow night, Purim Monday....and nothing else until alanscottevil comes to visit 2 weeks from today. I'll have to do something about that.

My mood's calmed down a bit in the hour-plus since I started this post. Oh well. We'll see how today goes. Happy Friday, LJ!

Yay, leaving work before 5 on a Friday to get ready for Shabbat at home for the last time this season! Starting next week with DST, no more building up flex time all week every week to leave early on Friday. If I come in at 9, I can leave at 5...and enjoy over 2 more hours of daylight! Yay!! Happy weekend, y'all!
