Bella Luna (stolen from Moonness @ OD)

It's fitting, really, that someone using the name “Moonness” posted this. It's not really a survey, more a quiz.

First, go here and find out what phase the moon was in when you were born.

Then, go here and find out how 'your' moon-phase influenced your life.

My results: I was born on 17 August 1970, the day after a full moon, so even though the full moon was visible, I'm technically influenced by the waning moon:

The DISSEMINATING MOON phase is the FRUIT of the plant’s cycle, the fruits of wisdom and experience. If you were born during the disseminating moon phase, your life must have purpose and meaning. You enjoy sharing your beliefs and ideas with others, and are a teacher. This large moon is visible in the sky from when she rises mid evening until when she sets midmorning.

Not sure how accurate this is, but fun to do, anyway.

Back to Work

So, I've had four days off in a row, and did I do anything enormously productive? Did I start my novel, or even finish folding the laundry that has accumulated o the couch in the computer room? No.

In truth between allergies and general not-feeling-well, I spent much of the time sleeping, or reading. And really, I have no regrets, because they were my four days, and while I love Fuzzy more than life, I rarely get four days of alone-time in a month.

I did clean the kitchen, top to bottom – even the top of the fridge, which admittedly, I tend to overlook because I can't see that high. And I did send the RSVP for a friend's wedding in Minneapolis in July. And returned half the stack of NetFlix movies I had on my desk.

And while part of me likes this regular paycheck thing, the bigger part of me really doesn't want to go back to the office tomorrow morning. I want to stay home and play.

Fuzzy called at midnight EDT to tell me that he wasn't feeling well. He always gets sick when he travels, and I always worry. And the bed's too big, even though we kid that he's only allowed about an eigth of it.

And I'm whining horribly so I'll end this now, with apologies.
