Play "Misty" for Me

Despite spending some time playing with my new CrackBerry and learning to mobile blog, I did actually get a lot of work done today. In fact, I finished reading/grading the remaining essays I had, and I finalized all my classes' grades, entered them in the computer system, and viola! I'm done for the term! Tomorrow, I am just going in to my office for a few hours to get some things organized for January (when I return), and to make sure all my hard drive files are backed up to my jump drive (they are "ghosting" our hard drives over the break). So, just a few hours of work tomorrow, and then I'm home free for about 3 weeks!

Ah, what a relief.

Also, on my way home, I picked up Jer-Bear's final Christmas present, so that means I'm done with x-mas shopping as well. (And yes, as per your questions regarding Tuesday's post, we did open one gift each. Really, I just wanted Jerry to open one of his stocking stuffers: "The Dark Knight" on DVD because I wanted to watch it again. And it was just as good the 2nd time around as it was in the theater. I got to open one of my stocking stuffers too: An iTunes GC, totally sweet!)

Then, this evening I went for a "misty" 4 miler (39:14). See, it was pouring rain earlier, but by the time I got laced up to run, it was really just a light drizzle, so light that it was more like a fizzy fog. Quite enjoyable actually since it kept me nice and cool.

P.S. Who can tell me where the title of this post comes from? The first person to tell me will win a...virtual pat on the back. Lame, yes, but you didn't think I'd offer an actual, tangible prize, did you?

It was very nice here too after the rain. It poured all day, and when I left to go get Grace - it was quite nice. David was out running, and although I wanted to run so bad - chose not to. We've got Christmas decorating and wrapping to do.

I know the "ghosting" term well. I use Ghost to do my job at work.

Have a great day tommorrow at work because it's your last for a while. Lucky!

Ohh i'm so jealous of your Blackberry!!!

Nice job getting the run in. It's pouring here so no running for me.

I just caught up on all your posts today! LOL. Glad to hear you were able to talk Jerry into opening one gift early!

Have fun with the blackberry. I'm so pathetic that I only have a pay as you go phone!

Kita said...

How can you be done with Christmas? You are amazing.

Glad you are figuring out the blackberry. I'm still trying to figure out how to get to the internet on my phone (Shoo has done it a few times, but I've never managed it myself LOL).

It's been raining all day here and shows no signs of stopping, so I had to run on the treadmill. Your run sounds nice!

Seems like it has rained everywhere but here.

Done with your shopping AND your grading...I think I hate you...

Miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep...

Shannon said...

Glad your vacation is starting. We'll kick it off right with the party tonight! Look at me - I can rhyme!

Marlene said...

Congrats on finishing up with your school work AND Christmas shopping!

My hubby is getting Dark Knight for Christmas from my sister and I can't wait - I still haven't seen it!

Ted said...

It must feel great to get the job done and also with the Christmas shopping. Thanks for the pointer on mobile blogging. I think it is going to work. I am going to test it this afternoon but need to think of something to take a picture of with my Blackberry.

BTW... Misty is one hell of a stalker. Very frightening!
