You know it's the holiday season when you have to wait on line everywhere. Lines at the Post Office. Lines at the bank (even in Select Banking). Lines at FedEx.
I had a choice of heading toward the FedEx on 79th or the one near Columbia. I decided to walk uptown.
The streets were full of harried-looking students. Since I read their LiveJournals, I know it's the last week of classes before reading week and finals. I don't envy them their end-of-semester pressure and deadlines. But in the real world, I'm just as harried. I've finished 3 big jobs in the last week, with 3 smaller ones to go (as well as the weekly NYT). Make that 4 - the puzzles for the next Puzzle Lady book were waiting when I returned.
Everything got done that I planned to do. Of course, I REALLY need to do some shopping before Sundance, but I can't deal with that today. My run-down-at-the-heels shoes that hurt after an afternoon of errands, and coat-with-a-big-safety-pin-in-the-button remind me I'm not ready for showtime.
