OOM [Oct. 1st, 2014|08:14 am]
Haven't been posting much because deadlines (the poster for last week's workshop and a webcast talk yesterday) have had me working extra which leaves me Out Of Mana. That's not a state of feeling bad; I'm not all stressed-out or unhappy or anything. I just at the end of the day don't have any extra oomph for broadcasting.

My todo list is still too long, but I should be able to come home early today, and I'm contemplating playing hooky on Friday. (There have been miscellaneous other stressors, as well, but they are resolving. Like, the fridge was getting really warm, but we defrosted it and now it's working again. Hooray! Which was not that big a task to deal with, all in all, but fretting about possibly needing to deal with major appliance repair/replacement was draining.)

When Ioliel jumped on me at Cat O'Clock this morning to let me know it was breakfast time, there was a glorious pink sunrise outside.

... Okay. That's all I got for now.

out of mana... where does that come from, something you made up or something else. It sounds familiar to me.

cat o'clock. LOVE IT!!! Thankfully after years of my cat waking up at all hours (he was on a 3 am jag for a long time) he seems to be on a 5 am wake up call mode now. Exactly 5 am, every day, I am waking up with a paw or wet nose in my face and purr purr purr... every day I try to remember how much nicer it is to wake up to that than the blaring alarm clock or the old MEOW!!!! he used to use to wake me up. :)

"Out of mana" comes from various video games. The idea is common to a bunch of them, but particularly in MMOs like World of Warcraft, people use the term (often abbreviated "OOM") when they're talking about how big boss fights went and suchlike.
