I don't know why I'm so overtired today, but I really feel like if I don't get some work to do or something to occupy myself with here soon I'm going to pass out right at my desk. I'm undercaffeinated, but the thought of a cup of coffee right now is making my stomach turn.

Anyway, the real reason for this post. I love 12 of 12, and I've never done it before. So I actually remembered my camera yesterday and gave it a try, and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

8:33 a.m. Already late for work, and I hit the light.
If I hit that light, I hit every single red light between my house and my office, which turns a five minute drive into fifteen.
GOOD TIMES. (I know, I know. Don't complain about a 3 mile commute, Heather...)

10:21 a.m. Spending my morning typing up subpoenas on the world's last surviving typewriter. I hate that thing.

11:36 a.m. Spent a good portion of the rest of the morning talking to [ profile] madmoisellestar
and trying to figure out how to get a job in Vancouver.
Looks like the most efficient way is to marry a nice Canadian boy or girl. Any takers?

12:42 p.m. Running errands at lunch. Can we talk about how it was 70 degrees here last week?
I'm kind of over this schizophrenic weather.

1:07 p.m. This is possibly my favorite thing in all of Annapolis:
a cemetary in the median between two busy, major roads.

1:15 p.m. Picking up lunch for the office at my favorite Annapolis deli.

4:09 p.m. Quitting time in less than an hour, and this is the pile of work still on my desk.
I ended up leaving without finishing just about any of it. :p

5:02 p.m. I left work a few minutes early and got stuck in the worst traffic jam I've ever seen.
I'm pretty sure the entire town was at a dead standstill for at least two hours.
It took me an hour and ten minutes to go the three miles between my office and home. I'm not even exaggerating.

6:23 p.m. I now know my Maryland voting rights! Thanks, handy sign!

6:40 p.m. I voted! (And ha, Aster! Didn't have to wait in line at all, unless you count the 70 minute traffic jam...)
Also? How exhausted am I? Sleep deprivation is not a good look on me.

7:38 p.m. Was supposed to meet a friend for coffee,
but the bad traffic and weather and the fact that the stupid coffee shop closed at 6pm as part of its new "winter hours" kept her away.
I went to the mall instead and this store had finally opened, and the less said about how much money I spent in there the better.
Ridiculously, ridiculously good and EXPENSIVE tea. I also want one of every tea set they have, FYI.
Like this and this especially. And this! And also this.

NOT PICTURED: The fall I had flat on my ass making my way up the sidewalk to my front steps. I mean, full on both of my feet flying up in front of me, I'm shocked I didn't sprain or break anything. The entire sidewalk and the steps to my front door were covered in a very thick, very literal sheet of ice. Not fun. But, at least no one was around to see. :p

10:36 p.m. After a hot bath to soothe my aching, fell-on-my-ass muscles,
a mug of my way expensive (but oh so delicious) jasmine tea, book, and sleep.
I'm trying out this whole reading thing. I hear I used to like it.
