08 May 2006

I just got home... from a ten hour drive from Washington, D.C. It seems like I have eaten nothing but beef jerky for days. My hair smells like teriyaki. I have to go to work tomorrow, but I'm going to go in late.

I am very tired and sunburnt. How's your Monday starting?
Well, I'm still awake and can't picture getting tired soon. Trying to put myself to sleep by listening to American talk radio, but it's just angrying up the blood instead.

I got up an hour ago, need to get ready to go to the doctor's. I can't drive for a while so a neighbour (aged 84) is picking me up. It's raining, looks like it's going to be raining alllll day.

I think it'll be a quiet day, reading, computer, TV. I have a lot of old paperwork I can shred for recycling. They collect it tomorrow. I'm somewhat confined to barracks at the moment. A friend is coming over later this evening.

That's the plan, anyway.

I have a cold and a stuffy nose. It's 2:38 am and I'm wide awake.

Hmmm, I haven't taken a sick day for over a year. There's an idea.

3:30 in the AM and I'm supposed to be writing a paper. I had written up a whole mecha post about it, but it failed to post and now it won't let me post again. So yeah, monday hasn't been too good to me so far.

It's published now, ko_jenn! Good luck with the paper.

I went to bed at 8 pm (still light!) and got up at 1 am to go pick oysters. It's still VERY dark and very very quiet.

I'm writing a presentation for a group I belong to: "In Over Our Heads". We choose topics totally out of our area of expertise and present an extended "briefing" to the others. I'm a medical type, and enjoy microbiology and chemistry, so I got Astrophysics. I have almost 30 pages of explanations of the Chandra astronomical satellite.

It's going to be a good day. I have coffee AND oysters.

Laugh with me, friends, as I type and type and ALMOST understand what it's all about.

I just got up - my right arm is killing me and I feel old.

Today I hope like hell that the checks I was promised Saturday arrive today. And thanks for the reminder to implement some scripty things for our conference website (cmonkey!!!).

We got almost 2" of rain yesterday which is good - we're down almost 6" for the year.

Off to the shower.

Badly. Today, I hate my life.

I got back from Vegas at 2am this morning. Work is less than fun right now.

Reflecked, what a great idea!!!

It's just before 8 am here, and I'm getting ready to take Rupert the Woolsucker to the vet to get his surgery stitches out. The sun is shining brilliantly, and I think I'm returning to a normal mood from the foul mood that had me in its grip almost the whole weekend.

It's Teacher Appreciation Day. There are meatballs and salad in the breakroom. So not so bad, I guess.

*craves jerky and slots*

Got laid last night. . .OK in an LTR that can be of note. . .

Trying to get some traction this morning with some real work.

So far, posting here, talking in the hallway, reading the news, etc.

I did not get laid last night, but I did start catching up on the current Sopranos season, which is really about as best as a guy can hope for.

My Monday has been all about running to the bathroom and/or destroying my pants.

Where this stomach virus came from, I don't know, but I'd like to send it back now and spend some quality time with my cat.
