After I got off the phone with my parents earlier, I thought I'd come down, check my email real quick (delete the 50 buy-now-get-by-Christmas sales spiels), and play some Oblivion before bedtime, but instead I found the good news in an email from my advisor, so I spent the time reading and making comments on our current draft manuscript. (I wanted to get something back to my co-authors right away so they can continue working away over the winter break.) So, yeah, instead of playing a computer game, I was engaging in meta-metacognition (thinking about "thinking about thinking," which is what the paper is, at heart, about). I still love that research, and think the findings were totally cool, but after a long day at work, hell, a long week at work....well, to quote my most commonly used Thieves Guild fence in Bruma, "I'm glad that's done. I need a nap."
You know what else I need? A vacation. I started my job at the beginning of April and have taken a grand total of ONE (1) vacation day. I am looking forward to starting a nice, long two week vacation this weekend! Woo hoo, people.
Over this winter break, Robert and I are going to be as happy as two rabbits with an abundance of carrot, if not as absolutely adorable.
