Oh, and it was nice to do nothing at all. But no, that isn't true, I just didn't have to stand up for six hours to do it, is all. I got a call from the Social Security office-- the woman who is handing my case is pretty sharp. She noticed that I hadn't finished my application online, and wanted to check. Well, sez I, when I was working on it last time, it gave me an error message, saying to call the office, so I did, and the woman said I'd have to come in to the office to finish it up. I made an appointment for Jan 25th. Turns out the woman on the phone was wrong-- I suppose I should have expected that; she has a job with the government, answering questions for a living, and those people are wrong SO much of the time. I think they just get so burned out they don't care, and just say the first thing that will get the caller off the phone. Anyway, my caseworker suggested that I try again, and lo, it worked. So now she'll be able to do the prep work before I go in. Yay, us. Again, I plan to be perfectly clear on the point that I do not expect to recieve SS disability, and in fact know that I am not qualified; this is merely a required step for the disability that I AM qualified for. Anyway, that step is done.

Last night I finally saw The Sopranos. I am way too cheap to pay for HBO or whatever it's on; I never watch TV. It wasn't exactly what I expected but I did like it. I didn't expect the humor, mainly. The main thing that suprised me, though, is that it gave me nightmares. WTF?? I had trouble going to sleep because of all the caffeine I had yesterday, and when I did get to sleep, I dreamed all night-- several different dreams-- that one of the crew was pointing a gun at me and was going to kill me. I have never had that happen, not even with all the shoot-em-up-bang-bang action flicks I watch. Too weird.

I started looking over the Humanities Resources material online today, and it looks like it's actually going to be enjoyable. What a concept! The first group of questions is "Literature" and I feared it would be all classics. Nope. Well, I take that back-- it's NEW classics-- two of the ten questions were about Neil Gaiman and William Gibson. Heh. Margaret Atwood was in there, too, but I'm not as familiar with her work.

Tomorrow [livejournal.com profile] zihuatanejo and I are going to a workshop on Book Repair at Wake Forest University. I'm looking forward to it, even though I'll have to leave the house at 6:15. Ick. It'll be an early night for me, which should be no problem since I got so little sleep last night. In fact, I'm sinking fast. Pitiful.
