Agonizing over whether to go to Pittsburgh this weekend. The E-Saver came up, but should I go for it when I have been through a lot of stress lately, it costs $$, and I can't pawn off pager duty this weekend so I might have to answer a work crisis while away? But... joint birthday celebration with anukul and other far-away friends might be just the thing to cheer me up.
Working tonight, as usual. I hope this time I can get things to be OK so that I can go to bed before 2 AM. I am also hoping to squeeze in a hot bath, a cup of tea, and a few pages of Dune or Foucalt's Pendulum for mental health reasons. (Does anyone ever read two novels at once? Isn't it hard to keep both threads without reading from each every day?)
