Mine don't really count, because I'm not going to have a bedtime on Wednesday night, and may not get one early on Thursday morning either. Might just have to push it into an extremely early Thursday night (afternoon?) bedtime. Still:

-Cheer the Sox to a Game 4 victory.
-Finish QAing the midnight 10/16 site updates.
-Launch the midnight 10/16 site updates.
-Sit patiently/nervously waiting for 10/16 midnight updates to make site assplode. When it becomes clear that it won't, or when I fall asleep at my desk, THEN it is can be bedtime now, pleeze.

- Check emails and respond, get over the fact there might be triple digit ugliness to wade through.

- Find an acceptable and efficient way to tell people "You have no idea what you are talking about. Shut up. Maybe go away. Maybe learn to read." without props or henchmen or lengthy explanations. "If you want time i don't want to give, you're gonna have to pay me enough to cover the difference or my indifference. Still doesn't mean i'll say yes. Doesn't mean i could have done anything to stop your from hearing what you want, anyway. i just need you to not endanger my immediate life and vicinity right now." doesn't work on so many levels.
Maybe a pamphlet is in order.

- Teach other people "No" doesn't necessarily need an explanation. Yes or no questions mean you can say no. They are not called yes or why questions. Maybe they should be. Stop with your silly excuse making. Yes, it is still lying. No, involving me without my knowledge does invalidate my no. No, i don't need to tell you any more. No means no. Get away from me. No. Maybe i have to check a lot of email and i don't care you don't know what that means. Maybe i want to watch crappy television. Maybe i want to talk to people i like or doodle. Maybe i just want to be amazed that Betty White is only sixty for an hour. i don't care what you think. i will hit you. i will warn you first but it should be clear. i will call the police but i doesn't mean i won't avoid "knife crime" which i think is a funny phrase.
Maybe a pamphlet is in order.

- Make phone calls within small time windows.

- Reassure people i am not talking about them, it's got nothing to do with them (although it really should be necessary but i'm not apparently driving that home any time soon.) Pamphlet?

- Solve global issues. Not planning on succeeding, getting to it.

- Watch ANTM.

- Wonder at the softness of the Bees' paws. Love the kitty. feed her denim affection.

- Eat well. Sleep well. Not forget to both, even if not well.

- Continuing the endless tasks of tidiness.

- Be happy even if for only a moment. Will gladly take interruptions of suck.

- Appreciate lack of suck, relative or not.

- Firmly establish the remission of the coffee & cigarette monkey without having to invite turkey, just for verification purposes.

- Not care i let broccoli overcook a bit as i wrote this.

- Shut up more. Brevity. Soul of wit. Witlessness.

- Make pamphlets.

Maybe i need a cigarette and some coffee.

It's 20:29 on Wednesday here, so I have to accomplish:
- watching an episode of the Shield
- putting the dishes away
- thinking of things I have to do for work and writing them down so I can stop thinking about them (work is very busy and quite stressful, atm)
- greeting my bf, who just walked in the door and is, I think, a bit tipsy
- completing a report for a volunteer gig I have working with an elderly vision-impaired woman
before 11-ish.

But then I might watch another few TV shows, and maybe get a little tipsy, and go to bed at 1-ish myself!
