last unicorn

(no subject)

I know, I know... I've been terribly lax about putting things in this journal lately. I suppose I've been busy or something... though if you asked me what I've been busy doing, I'd have a hard time answering you. Just bustling, I guess. It's really starting to feel like spring/summer here, so I've been more inclined to frisk about outdoors than putter at the computer, which may be a contributing factor.

Work's been quasi-busy lately, too -- I think I'm finally starting to get into the groove of things, at least a little. My biggest challenge these days is the shyness thing -- I hate having to call people up, especially people I don't know well, and that kind of thing is becoming more and more a part of the job. I wouldn't say it "get easier with practice", but the more people I talk to who don't say "who are you and why are you bothering me", the more of a positive record I have to look back on and counteract my negative self-talk with. If that made any sense.

Triathlon is in two weeks. Very exciting and nerve-wracking. I'm a little worried that I haven't been training outside very much yet, and running on a treadmill is so much different from running outside... but I'll be okay. I was out for a run today, which went fairly well, although I did have to dodge the throngs of people out for a stroll in the sunshine or heading to the Tulip Festival. (And this is where I complain about the group of about a dozen people who seemed to think it was appropriate to travel as a clump, effectively blocking the entire width of the path...)

Anyway, must get back to cooking dinner. I'm getting hungry.

Wretched cat just broke my clothes horse.
This is the second one he's broken. I don't know how he does it.
Well, okay, I do know: he climbs on top of them like they're his own personal jungle gym. And while he's not a hugely chubby cat, he clearly weighs more than the clothes horse was designed to support.

Grumble grumble.
Dratted feline.
