Audiobook for commute: Naked Sun by Isaac Asimov. I've probably read this before, but that was a long time ago and I've forgotten the plot. So far, so good (approx 2 hours in). I don't think this will ever be a favorite, but interesting and engaging enough to keep the road rage at bay.
Knitting: I am primarily working on my Knitting Olympics project. I am making the Firebird socks by Tsarina. They are beautiful beyond belief, and very hard. Tsarina doesn't pull punches on her patterns. So far I have the first foot done including the heel. I am stalled at an instruction I REALLY don't understand, so I will take a deep breath and tackle that one tomorrow. Maybe even a picture . . .
School: The copiers are broken again. The computers still don't work, and the IT dept has started blocking many educationally useful sites. I'll argue with them tomorrow. The kids were everything I expected after a 4 day weekend. Still, it's a better job than anything else I can think of.
Good news: I love the Olympics. Watching K get into the figure skating while pretending not to care is really cute. I wish I could snowboard.
Bad news: My best friend was diagnosed with cancer. The socks were going to be for me. Now they're for her. Major surgery for her the beginning of March. Crap.
Final thought: Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. I haven't celebrated church holidays for a long time, but I still define my year by them in many ways. Watching my friends post what they're giving up has made me think if it is still a meaningful holiday. I am still undecided, but will be pondering that all day tomorrow.
