1) I weighed myself, and over the course of the month of January I have lost 10 lbs! Hurrah! Now, of course, I have like 40 more to lose, but the point is, hurrah!
2) My chair, after guilting me for never seeing me, wants to nominate me for Very Awesome Campuswide Award. Apparently I'm going to have to put together a bunch of crap for it (for what's an award if one doesn't have to do a bunch of annoying crap in order to get it), but in my secret heart I've always wanted this award? Am very excited and very flattered that my Chair wants me to be in the running! (There are like 4 other people in my dept. who'd be eligible this year, so it's pretty amazing that he's chosen me.)
3) It's payday.
Yes, I think that's all.
ETA: Holy fucking shit! The day gets BETTER and BETTER! a) I am having delicious potato/cheese soup for lunch (because I have been without the potato for weeks and I am missing it and would like to marry the potato) and b) I just received correspondence from Really Fucking Awesome Journal that my MLA paper came to their attention and they'd like to consider publishing the full length article! (which, of course, does not exist, and this was going to be my year of no research, except clearly I will be writing this article because I really want to be published in RFAJ and, well, clearly I'm a workaholic). I love today! Today is the most awesome day EVER!
