Today was not half so bad for the crashing. I was on the study that I'm usually on these days, but on the far more picky about demographic group end of it. I was one of about three on the job, so the dialer was glacial.
There was some crashy near the end, and right around break time, but it wasn't particularly bad. I did get the notecard that I'd been meaning to make made up, though I'm going to have to wait on the GBRH notecard.
It was a restful day at work, at any rate. I got some housekeeping work done with my palmtop, got some things scheduled nicely, wonked around with due dates for to-do tasks, and the like. Now I'm trying to figure out how to type with a cat on my lap. eris_raven's never been much of one for snuggling, before, so this is sort of weird. Now she's climbing onto my desk, which may or may not be good precedent. She's sniffing everything, and purring about it. Her incision looks OK, though I'm not an expert.
Tomorrow: bleeding, then working extra.
