A pretty good day. It even started off well, with not oversleeping, and using the new coffee grinder. Tastes great, and there's a lot less grit getting through the screens on the French press. Needs two scoops instead of 1.5, because of the coarser grind.
No walk to speak of; I spent much of lunchtime sending a package and buying groceries (OK, beef jerky, nori, and prunes) for next week's lunches. And some time chasing links.
I spent some time in the morning reading Ricoh's Corporate Social Responsibility pages. I don't often mention the name of the company I work for, but I figure that a company that takes social and environmental responsibility seriously enough to put it into the code of conduct that every employee is required to sign off on (which is why I was reading it) deserves a bit of a signal boost.
The evening was an expanded Date Night, moved from Thursday so that we could go to dinner (Chinese: Jasmine) and the annual Golden Bough holiday concert. We took not only the YD but Marty and her daughter (the YD's best friend) K. Good fun was had by all; it was M and K's first GB concert, and they had a blast.
When I got home I went to look for a credit card bill that I'd misplaced (and therefore was late on); I didn't find it but did find two other bills I'd misplaced. Grump. Well, they're all paid now, though they won't go through until Monday night or so. Dumb bear!
I seem to be reading and enjoying more poetry and short fiction these days, mostly through my LJ flist. Go me! I might even try writing some... Not sure why I stopped -- I wrote a lot of poetry in my college years. Some of my posts have turned into prose poems, though. I'm not so good at plot; a form that can be almost pure description is a good fit for an easily-distracted -- oooh! Shiny!
Would people prefer it if I put the links in a separate post from the daily "what happened and what I thought about it" post?
