This weekend and the next couple of weeks might make me crazy.

At 6pm, the Knitting Olympics start.

I have a one-page essay, on a topic which will not fit on one page, due at some point. (I have not written it yet.) Written and submitted. I even made it fit on one page, with some judicious font sizing. (10.5 font FTW. :P )
I have a 50-minute history exam.
I have to meet Rainbow people at the bank at 12:30pm to switch over this year's check signers.
I have a large Rainbow event with practice and setup starting at 2, and the event running until about 9:30 or longer.

I have a fairly extensive grocery shopping trip planned, which will involve four different stores in three different towns (and frozen/cold-perishable goods at each, so I'll have to go home in between to drop them off).

I have four sets of questions due for my Class of Suck, two sets of which are on a book I haven't actually read yet. So I have to read the book sometime in there too. Edit: But the two that aren't on that book are done, so I can just copy/paste them to post them on the class discussion board.

The Knitting Olympics run from tonight through 2/28, just like the regular Olympics. I selected Vivian as my project for this year.

During those 16 days, in addition to this weekend's plans listed above, I have:
*Spring quarter registration opens on Tuesday 2/16; as there are only 24 openings in VOLCANO FIELD DAY, I need to get registered post-haste Tuesday morning if I want in.
*Another 3-4 page essay, two sets one set of homework questions, and another exam in my history class. Edit: Completed one set today, need to turn in.
*History class meetings on both Wednesdays.
*Weekly assignments, usually multiple readings with multiple sets of questions, for my Class of Suck.
*An OES meeting and a Rainbow meeting.
*Several Rainbow events that I already agreed to chaperone/help out with.
*The OES wine tasting and silent auction fundraiser, for which I am the chairman of the kitchen committee, is 2/27. I will also have at least one, if not two, committee meetings during this timeframe.
*A 1500-word research paper on the history of the lobotomy and its impact on modern medical ethics that is due on 3/2 and a major portion of my grade in the Class of Suck.
*And oh yeah, I work M-F 8-4ish.

I believe my experiments with giving up caffeine are off for the next few weeks.

Also, bob bless slow days at work.

For investigation purposes, my winter quarter second class options as of today and their book requirements, plus prices as per the school's bookstore:

Unfortunately, my two top options are problematic -- my first pick would be the Women's Studies course, which is on Thursday nights. Just like my Rainbow meetings, my OES meetings, and my Rainbow board meetings (for which I have just been elected secretary). My second would be the chemistry, but that's a lot of price on those books, and there's not much wiggle room as they're not exactly books, but access to a specialized online instruction system.

Barring those two options, the Bioethics course is my top pick of what remains, though again that's potentially a lot of book. I'm trawling Google for cheap books; anyone have any specific suggestions for finding them? ISBNs are in the post.

I have an OES triple-feature event tonight -- my birthday, holiday festivities, and initiating two of our Rainbow girls. So I dressed up a bit.

Off I go!

(Dan's grandpa made the wooden plaque visible behind me -- it's a lovely little woodland/mountain scene. Someday I'll have to post a picture of the eagle in our office.)

Oh hay.

I was just asked to sit on the advisory board for the Rainbow Assembly for 2009 :)

(I will also hold an office in the OES chapter, but that doesn't take effect til March or so.)

Recent happenings.

Good -
- lots of good WoW developments - several first-kills, a flaming horsie with fangs, level 50 and a water elemental named Fred.
- My baby brother proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas day, and she accepted. (Related weird: This means that my 25-year-old brother will have a 11-year-old stepson. Also weird: Both my younger siblings are dating people older than me. I am the only one who finds any of this weird.)
- I have about six knitting projects currently on needles.
- In correlation, I have about twelve million various movies/TV series in queue to watch/rewatch in the not-so-distant future.
- The girls did absolutely AWESOME at their initiation last night - every single one of them, including the pro tems, had at least a 95% accuracy rate on their parts. (They need to practice their square corners, IMO, but Michigan Rainbow was rather more formal than Washington Rainbow appears to be. Or maybe it's just that my mother advisor was a million years old and picky.)
- At the installation on Saturday, not only is one of the board members bringing me the OES Petition I've been waiting for for two months, but apparently the Worthy Matron will be there and I can meet her. Spiffy.

Bad -
- I had my first math exam last night. I think I might've eked out a good solid C. On the plus side, the rest of the class involves less graphing and more actual equations, and he tosses out the lowest of the three exams for grading purposes.
- The closet door behind my desk randomly fell off the track last night. This has been happening a lot in our apartment lately. I don't like it when sliding doors jump off their tracks for no explainable reason.
- Still waiting on both of my W2s and both of Dan's W2s. Feh.
- Coworker? So. So. So. Stupid.

Awesome -
- Who has plane tickets to Nashville for the third week of June? OH HAY THAT WOULD BE ME.
ginger: (hmm?)
Caveat: By "Masonic organizations," I mean any of them - the Masonic Brotherhood themselves as well as the Order of the Eastern Star, Rainbow, Job's Daughters, or DeMolay.
