Full Time, Half Brain

So I'm not really sure where September went.  I remember working a lot thanks to my new full-time status at my Real Job, but everything else is kind of a blur.  My life basically falls into two categories:  work and sleep.  Sure, I do some other things, but I'm pretty sure that my brain power decreases as my workload increases (a negative correlation), and I'm not able to fully process events anymore.  Here is what I can remember from the last month:
     1.  The fall TV season began.  This is one reason that fall is my favorite season.  True, it was pretty complicated getting my TiVo recording schedule set up with so many new shows to try out plus returning favorites, but I love the beginning of a tv season.  There are so many possibilities and nothing has been cancelled yet!  Thus far, I've been relatively satisfied.  Yes, the lack of Joshua Jackson on Fringe has been disappointing, but the campy noir feel of Ringer and the goofy fun of New Girl are helping me cope until Peter Bishop makes his inevitable return.

     2.  Babies.  Nearly all of my friends are pregnant.  Okay, so not really all of them, but, like, four are.  I'm really happy for them and know that they will all be fantastic mothers, but honestly, I have trouble being as sweet as the birth of a baby traditionally requires.  I'm way to self-absorbed and sarcastic fully embrace the pastels-and-baby-talk movement.  Thankfully, my friends accept me as I am.  They've even shown support for my latest idea:  Onsie-liners--onsies with a smack of snark.  My favorites so are, "See, Mommy wasn't just fat!"  and "Proof Daddy's not gay."

     3.  I see the sun rise a lot.  I actually see it rise about 5 times a week because I don't live on the Little Prince's planet where I can just move my chair and watch as many sunrises as I want during the day, and I'm not getting up early enough to see it if I don't have to.  However, 5 days a week I'm at work (which is an hour away) by 6am, and I get to watch the sunrise over the taxiway.  It's quite beautiful and makes my days a little better.

And that's about all.  I'm still trying to put together a JA Greetings website, but it's taking far longer than it should.  My goal is to have it up and running by the end of the month.  Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to miss this blog during my hiatus :)
