Not very focused today. Morning went kind of slow. I keep forgetting it is June - I keep encountering things that start today or tomorrow and thinking "wait, but those don't start until June" then coming up short.

It's nice, in any case, for the closest thing to a crisis in my life to be that I won't have enough leave built up by the 16th to take the four days I am scheduled off. I have to talk to my boss about it, but I think I can take leave without pay and still have the time. So right this moment it is more of a proto-crisis.

Mostly I just have to figure out how to frame what I want to say. Which shouldn't take long.

Just got one of the new nickles for the first time. Seeing it in my handful of change was disorienting - I've come to associate the 'nonstandard' coin backs with quarters, so my brain spent several moments oscillating between that's too small to be a quarter and unusual back == quarter modes. I still look at it with the that's too small response strongly flavoring my thoughts.

Time to pack up and go home. Maybe I can send some more Nordock NPCs to their doom.
