I’m a bit distressed that I’m going to have to spent the weekend feeling sorry for myself because of allergies. That would be bad. Junior is in full-blown allergy hell, although this morning he looked better than he has in days. I’m on the downswing, feeling tired, post-nasal drip, lungs just ready for a vacation.
Luckily, my only plans for the weekend aren’t anything I can’t fit a nap around.
I’m almost out of my Special K Red Berries, so time to hit the grocery store. I got paid yesterday, so all is good. I’m bummed that next week I won’t get paid for the 4th of July. “You only get paid for the hours you work” says the company I’m working for. “You could always come in if you want to get paid.” Um, no. No thanks. Besides, my security badge isn’t good for weekends or holidays.
A reporter wants to interview me regarding my Open Letter To the Ice Cream Man. I have no idea what kinds of questions he’s going to ask me, but hey, I’m easy, I’ll give it a shot.
Here’s another reason why it’s good to work in a building with a cafeteria…today they had chocolate-covered strawberries for dessert. Giant strawberries, thick chocolate. 75 cents eachy. Mmmmmm.
I spent a good portion of last night trying to figure out how to automate updates of the main Dump page. I know I did an informal poll of the users about whether they wanted to combine the blog with the Dump so there would only be one page to visit, but that got a thumbs down. Still, the blog is updated daily and the Dump lingers for a month or so, because I have to update it at home while sitting in front of the computer. Everything is updated by hand.
So I think I may have solved the problem. I’ll be working on it some more, and will point you to a test area as soon as I have a working model.
