Getting down to the wire...

LJ Idol voting closes today, and this week is a "team vs. team" result, where the team not in first place is going to lose one or two members. My team is fantastic, so I'm hoping not to lose anyone. Voting for all team members here would really help, if you're so inclined.

I think Mondays would go better if I weren't staying up late every Sunday trying to get those last few things done before the work-week starts. I usually get about 7 hours of sleep, max, and then there's an early meeting on Tuesday mornings. This may be why Wednesdays always feel like they should be Fridays.

I'm getting caught up on my f-list from late last week. I hope those of you who celebrate Passover had a good time gathering with friends and family. That's much better news than some of the weird political things I've come across over the last 3-4 days.

A main street on my daily work commute has "Road resurfacing" scheduled for the future. Threat or promise? The surface is pretty bad (decaying for years, and sadly I know this because I've bike-commuted on it too, and you get a really good look at the sorry state of pavement when you're biking). OTOH, there were suspicious markings on the pavement last week, and then the massive digging that foretells more sewer construction! That helps nothing. :(

ETA suckage: My bike is in the shop for an overhaul, targeted at going in late yesterday and coming back late today. But HalfshellHusband called to say that when the shop opened the package of replacement shifters, they found two right-side units and no left. Re-ordering. So... no bike until maybe Thursday? ARRRGGHHHH. I'll be running today, on what has become my once-every-two-weeks schedule in an attempt to rebuff the returning plantar fasciitis. *sigh*
