Things on my mind

  • Still basking in the afterglow of the Nutcracker performances from last weekend. Although perhaps a more accurate statement would be that I was completely stressed out for the past two weeks and this weekend I did about as little as possible, which was very relaxing. Somehow there was also a company holiday party in the mix that weekend — among the busiest.
  • Aforementioned baskiness has been tempered by the fact that I developed ulcers again from the work and rehearsal schedule. Prilosec is pretty great these days.
  • All the transportation has now been booked for the trip to India. Now I just need to book a few hotels and figure out all the odds and ends I should buy. Does anyone know if it’s safe to drink iodine tablet water for two whole weeks, or should I opt for a water filtration device of some sort? Or maybe a steripen?
  • Realized that over a quarter of the books I’ve read this year were Harry Potters. On the other hand, I’m at 25 books so far, which is more than I’ve read in a single year since undergrad.
  • Let’s not talk about the NBA season or the vetoed Chris Paul trade just yet. I need to come up with a coherent draft plan soon, but I don’t know what to do with the 4th draft pick.
  • Also, Andrew Luck got robbed of the Heisman.
