Good things this week

Some great things have been happening this holiday week:

  • I finished reading my 88th book for the year.
  • I sent an article about Costa Rica to Matador Travel (online site, in beta right now).
  • I finished reading “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” (by David Allen) and started implementing it in earnest this time I mean it!
  • I established inboxes for John and myself at the breakfast table.
  • I got rid of a lot of the paper piles from my office.
  • I got some work done for the new project
  • I did five pet-sitting jobs
  • I wrote my thank you cards from Christmas.
  • I ordered my sister and niece’s birthday presents from Amazon.com
  • I drank a lot of hot spiced cider
  • I wrote my next Toastmasters speech
  • I mentally prepared myself for Janowrimo (which starts in 3 1/2 hours!)
  • I talked to my father for a good half hour. And scored a pair of home-made wool mittens in the process.

    Also: Something that made me smile today: Worst Vlogs of 2006. Why smile? Well, for one thing: I’m not on the list.

Note: Many of these books also have full reviews available in the book review podcast (RSS).

Note to friends: NOT ME.

WTHR – Indianapolis News and Weather – Family of murdered Greenwood woman says the warning signs were there:

The alleged murderess is the victim’s daughter, named Stephanie Bryant. This person is NOT ME. I wish Google would pick that up and stop delivering this gruesome story to my Ego Alerts, but what can ya do?

For reasons that I won’t go into in a public blog, there are about a dozen weird coincidences in this story that give me the heebie jeebies.
