Also I had an omelet for dinner and that is IMPORTANT.

Working at home gives me the same feeling that getting sick gives me; I’m both alert and disoriented at the end of the day, without any frame of reference for how I should feel.

On the other hand I didn’t have to fight traffic or sit under fluorescent lights today! My job has a program running that slowly leaks memory and does other bad things and blows up, horribly, about every six hours. I got to fix that twice, and do some housekeeping chores, and help people get more important things done, and generally be the technology Oompa-Loompa which is a role I like to play.

Tonight I hung out with Gambler Jesse and Irish Dan. Jesse just got back from Hong Kong and Guangdong Province, China where he had a great time as always and did not get the SARS. Since he’s a nurse he has to be monitored for a couple of weeks now, but isn’t worried. He described to me the odd things rich Chinese people eat (duck tongues?) and some of his adventures. He’s a great ambassador for my country. Just as we’re annoying the world, here comes a big friendly generous Filipino nurse who loves to play blackjack, eat, drink, and have conversation with his friends, reaffirming that we can export neat things too.

[five minutes pass..]

I just returned from my garage, where a rubber hose conveying water to the washing machine just failed. Good thing I noticed that the water sound was going on too long, there’s only about 1/2 inch of water on the garage floor. Burf. Good night!

    I’ve always been jealous of your colorful associates. Can you arrange things so all my compadres have interesting aliases?
    Oh wait… never mind.
