Odds and Ends

1) I registered for the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. I think an appropriate rookie goal is finishing in the top half. Not that I'm actually going to do anything particular to prepare because I am too busy with my other obsessions.

2) I am trying to decide if it makes any sort of sense to go to a Broadway show the Sunday afternoon the tournament ends and, if so, whether there is still any sort of left luggage at Penn Station. (Bear in mind that it takes me an hour to get back to my neck of the woods after Amtrak back to D.C. Which implies that the answer is probably, no, it doesn't make sense, but that doesn't mean I won't decide to do it.)

3) I don't knit as fast as I think I do. But if I finish the back of sweater #1 this week, I'll feel reasonably on track. The definition of "this week" is flexible.

4) Signs my workplace is different from yours: there is now a security notice posted on our refrigerator.

5) This is the last day of Holidailies, so I don't have that "post every day" commitment. However, since I have opinions about everything, I'm still likely to ramble fairly frequently.
