A-- go to my fics and pick out a line or two from one of my stories.
B-- I will look at you blankly
C-- there is no C

Like I would be able to do that. I'm the one who accidentally used the same title for two stories. Granted, they were six years apart, but still.

I can't even remember to add extra time to my morning schedule to allow for Sock Season. The rule is no socks before October 1. After that, socks are allowed but still optional. Right now, it's chilly, so I am be-socked. My morning schedule:

6:00 AM - get up, make tea or coffee, make eggs or grab a granola bar, pack lunch
6:15 AM - sit at my computer and do LJ and email, write if I'm not feeling lazy, watch some toku if I am
7:45 AM - curse and then wash dishes, sometimes
8:00 AM - think, Oh, I should start getting ready for work, right after I play this song again
8:07 AM - think, Oh my god, I'm late, jump up, shower, dress, race around
8:30 AM - only catch the bus because I ran and the bus driver was kind

That's all without socks. With socks, we have an additional:

8:27:00 AM - put on pants
8:27:30 AM - realise I haven't put on socks
8:28:00 AM - take off pants
8:29:00 AM - put on socks (they're too long to easily put on when I'm already in my pants)
8:29:30 AM - put on shoes
8:30:00 AM - lace up shoes
8:31:00 AM - curse because lacing up shoes takes so much longer than putting on sandals
8:34:00 AM - miss bus

But at least my feet are warm.

It was too nice to wear shoes and socks today, but I had a laundry crisis, so I wore corduroy pants with sandals. I felt odd, mixing warm weather footwear with cold weather pants.

I would suggest pants with wider legs to make the morning routine go faster, but I assume you would have tried that if you wanted to do so.

And I can't resist:

The Foo Fighters? thought Skinner. Does this have something to do with aliens after all?

I did that for the last few days of September, because I was too stubborn to put socks on early.

Okay, this one I can remember. :) Heart and Soul. Everybody loves song stories!
