i don't care about having slept for only four hours: i was able to remember a fairly sexy dream about an ex from 20 years ago; I get *two* cups of coffee today, one of which is going to be the special coffee that should be here RSN; and with nothing better to do, I am going to knock out the rest of my last translation of the year... write a tasty four-figure invoice for the project...

and then uh maybe nap

I am obsessed with my shipment of special coffee. it's an emotional rollercoaster. will it come today? when? will the mail carrier come at 9am instead of 6pm like they inexplicably did yesterday?

SHOULD I MAKE A CUP OF CRAPPY STOPGAP COFFEE OR WHITE-KNUCKLE IT?!?

just finished the second of three translations, each a day early. I'm super proud of myself -- these translations are gonna be in a book! whee

it's raining real good over here in Porplund

my self-esteem feels like a cauldron full of boiling molten gold. the fuller the cauldron and the stronger it boils, the more I worry it's going to slosh out, going irrecoverably to waste and savagely burning innocent bystanders, maybe even myself. it feels intuitively safer for the cauldron of self-esteem to be nearly empty and just barely simmering.

I clearly need a better mental model.

I think this is the first time in my life that I walked into a party, my eyes were immediately drawn to the most beautiful woman in the whole group, I had a super interesting conversation with her off and on through the entire party, and we left the party together. i am frankly stunned.
