Back to the grind...

I worked from home today. I finished Jim's final edit, and I canceled my one-on-one meeting with my manager, with both of us agreeing that it was unnecessary today.



I went to the gym late in the afternoon, in time to finish up my routine for Free Pizza Monday. It was good to get back into my routine, which I did with crunches, upper body work, and a short cardio workout.

I missed my friend Kevin (av8rdude) today, and will again tomorrow morning for Free Bagel Day.

From Planet Fitness, I went to Helios, where I took care of a few things:

  1. Completed the IBM Matching Grants forms for my $100 December/January donation to Manbites, and for my current $500 donation. That should get them an extra $600 in donations. Yay!

  2. Devised my "cloud tag" entries from this weekend, and posted them.

  3. I renewed my Chinese for Dummies library book, since I haven't read a page of it yet, and it's due tomorrow.

  4. Started filling out the incredible (as in incredibly complicated and detailed) Visa Application Form of the People's Republic of China.
With regards to that, I can't believe what it's going to cost to get this visa. My Australia visa, which I bought at the airport on the day of travel, was $25. Total.

The China visa costs include: $130 for the visa application to the Chinese consulate, a $55 "service fee" to It's Easy Passport - Visas, and a $22 return shipping and handling fee to It's Easy Passport (on top of their service fee). I mean, really, $22 to ship a passport with a visa stamped in it? That's $207 altogether—an absolute outrage.



My goal is to get to bed at a decent hour this evening, so as to be at the gym all bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed (yeah, right) for bagels in the morning.

I am anticipating two deterrents to that: (1) I am not a morning person, and (2) my workout buddy (av8rdude) won't be joining me as encouragement. I must be strong.
