Sunday funnies:

The Sunday extra for Day By Day features Jan and Sam in bikinis.

4 Block World is about "Direction of Pull". Absolutely spot on.

Dilbert again hits the nail on the head.

Big Nate struck close to home for me. Not that I plan on gaining any weight...

I can identify with Ralph in today's Drabble as well. For me, it's game shows.

Luann has another one of those "been there, done that" moments. (TV Turnoff Week?)

I don't think they do commercials like the one featured in today's Pearls Before Swine anymore. Kind of makes me wish for the old days...

I actually know people who would agree with Stacey in Unfit. I'm tempted to make the third-to-last panel an icon.

Have a good Sunday. I've got a database waiting for me. Yowza!

The best laid plans of mice and men are aft tae gang agley. Or something like that. (Don't bother correcting me; I know it's wrong, but it's close enough for my purposes.)

I was hoping that I could get our training database converted to the new release and actually get the damned thing to work, but I've just run into too many issues with the data and the programs involved, so I've finally given up for the evening. There was a substantial financial incentive to get it done, but, face it, it just wasn't in the cards. It should have been easy. Oh well.

We went out for lunch and for coffee, and I did my usual scribbling. I've actually got about 70 or so longhand pages of a story written. The fun part comes in trying to read my writing and transcribing it. Lotsa luck to me.

It's been a long day, and a long weekend, I'm tired and frustrated, and I'm going to have to face the boss tomorrow and tell him that I couldn't do it. Damn.
