Plow Illinois      Yy

Well, yyyyyyyy not?

I am fried today. It is Thursday and I was humming along working on coding out the bones for a major re-skinning of our product when all of a sudden, I reloaded a page and the text on the navigation buttons changed from a dark gray color to WHITE! How the heck did *that* happen? I hadn’t changed *those*! I spent two hours trying to fix the problem without success, only to find out during the very last nano-second of the day that the problem was in a file I hadn’t even *thought* to look in! A file that I hadn’t touched all day. I can only guess that somebody accidentally overwrote the file with a [much] older copy. For all I know, that person couldda been me… Or maybe Frooggy got in there to muck things up. He has been known to do that. Of course he would’ve changed the color to “frog greeeeen” or “edjee perpel” or something. White is a bit too boring for Frooggy. Such can be the nature of the computer programming-type parts of my job. Computers are only as smart as those who program them. I wasn’t very smart today and I was making enough noise during all of this to provide W0.5 and the long-suffering, cat-herding person with quite some entertainment. My female cube neighbors weren’t laughing very hard but that was only because they were dealing with their own little issues. Anyway, I did get rid of the white text, so hopefully it won’t instigate a bunch of those frenetic processing dreams tonight.

That’s about all I have today. It’s Thursday and I am outta leftovers, so I am making breakfast dinner. Mouse went off to rehearsal with*out* curlers in her hair, thank you very much. And I am not getting enough solo time here at the landfill. Seems like I just get home and get my chores done and, next thing I know, somebody is barreling in the door yelling, “Luuuuuucy, I’m home!”

Sleep tight (oh, not really) (well, Frooggy prob’ly will).
Don’t let the bed bugs bite (really).

    It sounds like you wore out your mind figuring out those ‘puter issues. 😉 My mind is tired even reading about it.

    in order to re-direct your mind….. I left for work a little earlier than normal today (7:00ish) and the stars were really bright! Orion’s belt was clear and right in my line of sight as I walked away from my apt door — and this is in the heart of the city with all that light pollution.

    I look for Orion every morning it’s not cloudy! And then I swing around and make sure the dippers are still there! 🙂

    Or, as Mouse used to call it as a small child, “The Rion”.

    I saw Orion and the waning crescent moon at 4:45 am when I left for the polls!
