This Is How I Feel Today

This is how I feel today (I had to add the gray in myself -- also, I am in my jammies, not work clothes* -- yet. Perhaps there should be a little cloud over my head and perhaps an empty wine bottle in the background.): Ink has the avatar link (hee! Rhyme!).

UPDATE: As of about 4 pm, I feel this way:


Read the comments to see why!**



*Yes, I do dress like that. I have that exact outfit, I swear.

** I do not dress like that and do not own any outfit resembling that, I just thought it was both happy and powerful (with the cape and the lightening bolt), so chose it. Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind wearing a black cape, especially in winter.

It's the first day in a while that I don't feel like that. April was just a hard month. Resolved: from now on I will do all Fall work August-October, and all Spring work January-March. In November and April I will only deal with the onslaught of finals and the fatigue, and I will try to not get myself too tired so I can hit the ground running with recreation and research in December and May, and full-on research with weekends off and a voyage of some sort in June and July.

Resolved, resolved, resolved. I should put this on my blog, too.

I feel like that too! Love the coffee -- I definitely need one of those in my hands as well.

Hope some surprisingly wonderful things come in for you today. To counter the exhaustion.

What is that outfit? It looks like a suit with pinstripe pants and a tie. Rather Oscar Wilde-ish, IMHO, but wev.

Historiann: Oscar Wilde? I like that. I should perhaps add a green carnation in tribute.

It's a black jacket (of which a person can never have too many), a white shirt (same here), a red tie, and the bottoms can either be pinstriped pants or a pinstriped skirt. I have both. It is, essentially, my uniform, although I like to add touches that make it suggest a period costume -- although the period is often open for interpretation. I have no actual fashion sense, so costume-y or cartoon librarian tend to be the template.

Profecero: I like that plan. I used to joke that I planned a nervous breakdown for about Halloween in the fall and Easter in the spring. Now, I see how long I can hold them off. Some semesters are better than others.

Ink: Indeed, the day took a sudden turn for the awesome about two hours ago. Fabulous readers' reports for my book proposal, both recommending a contract! It's a not-too-shabby press, too.

Needless to say, I'm pretty useless right now what with the Happy Snoopy Dancing and all!

Book - excellent!!!! Is Ink psychic?

Clio Bluestocking said...

Yes, Ink must be pyschic!

Thank you everyone!

Now, I'm walking that fine line between the ecstatic, "yea! I get to write it and someone will read it! WhooHoo!" and the panicked, "OMGOMGOMG! Now I have to write the damn thing! Ack!" I rather lean toward the former because this is MY book to write, and MY time to write it. Awesome!

Ink said...

I'd be insanely jealous if you didn't so richly deserve it. Congratulations -- may the publishing process work like a stroll in the park for you.
