It’s really, really cold outside and it was terribly hard to get out of bed so early. But, ah, well, it’s a holiday week & that will mean lots of rest and way too much eating over the next few days. I don’t know that I feel much like baking anything too complicated, so I’ll probably just make gingerbread for the dinner.
Atonement came from Netflix, and Mike has never seen it, so I’m excited to watch it with him. I adore it. I was a bit trepidatious when it came out, as it’s based on one of my favorite books ever, by the wonderful Ian McEwan, and I feared that it wouldn’t do the book justice. And it didn’t completely, but it did enough to make me very happy, and it was beautiful to look at, too:

A gorgeous and heartbreaking film, most definitely.
& You know what I’m REALLY tired of? Men coming into the Writing Center while I’m running it (as I am now) and asking me to make them coffee. DUDE. NO. I am not your secretary, nor your slave. Sigh.
But what is nice is that I got here early enough today to choose the radio station, and thus am making everyone listen to nice, soothing, and quiet classical music instead of insanely distracting loud music. Go me!
Ack, better go work. More soon. xo
