So... so many things.

1. Saw War Horse last night. spoilers, but not really )

2. Read The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern. thoughts )

3. I knew, when I was saying all last week that 44 degrees and muddy was creepy for January, I would regret it. Today is bloody cold. And the new, energy star windows in the house are surprisingly drafty--I mean, like there's a cutting wind blowing through my room kind of draft.

4. I took off work early, because no more appointments were scheduled and since I just agreed to add a shitload more on-call in the spring (covering a colleague having a baby) I figured, what the hell. The extra emergency work means I'm going to be stressed out and kind of a beast for a few months but I'll be making more money and, if by some miracle, I get a residency spot, it'll be nice to save up some extra now.

5. So all I really want to do this afternoon is ski a little and curl up under the covers with some hot chocolate, a good book, and my dog. However, what I'm supposed to do this afternoon is drive to Ithaca for another interview tomorrow. If this one goes badly, I may just bag the third one next weekend, and look for another new job for the summer. These residency interviews are a lot of time and a whole lot of driving, and not worth it if I don't have a chance to begin with.

I'm being cynical. But also realistic, given the current market.
