no witty title

It's been so busy. Here are the interesting highlights:

*Choir had concert. It went good. Tour is this weekend. I really want to talk about the Poulenc and the Gounod and the Duruflé motets but time. I had three rehearsals in a row, Saturday-Sunday-Monday.
*Archery is having its Christmas shoot, which I think I may have to miss :( I have graduated from 10 meters (yay) to the indoor range's longest, which is 18m. Still working on form.
*I'm tired today and I felt grumpy all day and snapped at a team member. I feel bad, because ugh, not deserved (though really, you're older than me and you're still confused about [redacted]?)
*Seriously, why do people do laundry on Monday evenings? I avoid Sundays, but...it's negative something outdoors (you have to go in and out of the building to get to the basement), it's a Monday, but this is the second time I've gone downstairs and found it occupied.

For the first time ever I think I'm not going to make this Nanowrimo :( I have almost 12K, I've got a boatload of things I need to do which take precedence (by a huge margin), and my general strategy--"write like the wind on the 30th"--is not viable this year because I'm going to be on tour and well, I'm going to spend my time singing, socializing and running around the city being a tourist. I've never lost before. I really don't want to, but the prospect of trying to put in 38K in the remaining four or five days, on top of everything else, is unfeasible.

So in short, I'm kind of midway between "too tired to really hope" and "D:"

ETA: I forgot. I found a tattoo on tumblr which is what I envisioned the marques would look like, if they were off to the side (I really hate the huge blooming ones on the covers, sorry). It's a picture of a bare back, so sort of NSFW? http://guindas-dulces.tumblr.com/post/40842690638 It looks like apple blossoms to me.

This is so weird and probably unlikely, but I half-remember an old poem about the right days to do chores, starting with "Wash on Monday". So I just googled it and apparently it's a really old thing:


The next result Google has is actually from the "Little House" books, which is where I picked it up in the first place:


Maybe some kind of habitual cultural hangover from those days? (Mentioned it to my boyfriend; apparently in the Netherlands Wednesday is wash-day!)

Ohh, cool! I hadn't thought of that. It's weird, though, I usually think of Sundays/Saturdays as wash days because people are busy during the week and you generally have to be around to take the wash in, out, etc. I remember the saying from Little House too :)

In our house, "oh god the machine is overflowing with things we have stuffed in it; also he has no clean shirts except that one that is too short" is wash day. ;)

That is exactly how I do laundry too. Oh look, I have no more underwear. Time to do laundry!
