goth babysitter?

i'll probably have a giant lunch

I did it again! "It", in this case, is deciding to stop and pick up breakfast on my way to work, and then completely failing to do so. So I just autopiloted straight to the office and now have neither food nor good coffee. Sigh. At least I do have nice tea.

My parents got themselves a Wii Fit, and I got to try it out yesterday. I only played with it for about a half hour, but it was pretty fun. I am terrible at the slalom, reasonably OK with the ski jump and the few yoga bits I tried, and really super awesome at . . . running. Yes, there's an option where you stick the controller in your pocket and jog in place on the floor. It's silly, but I was unreasonably amused at the sight of my Mii running along lovely wooded paths, while the Miis of friends and relatives (and anthropomorphised pets) ran along or stood on the side of the path and waved.

I'm so glad it's Friday. This week has seemed unnecessarily long. Few weekend plans, which pleases me. Sharif is pretty sure that he has Sunday off, which will mean that I might actually get to spend some one-on-one time with him. We've been on such contrasting schedules lately that most days I get about an hour with him between the time he gets home from work and the time I have to go to bed. I don't know what we'd do if we didn't live in the same house. Be sad, probably.
