I am one tiny little screw away from upgrading the memory on my laptop. I've spent the better part of the day (a little here, a little there) trying to remove two tiny screws, and have managed to strip the Philips head on one of them to the point where I can't unscrew it. Guess I'll be off to Home Depot tomorrow to see if I can get a screw tap to get it out. I'd try the hand drill on it (I have a very small bit that I could use), except it's in the basement with Jackie, who has spent most of the evening screaming at Thumbs and trying to pick a fight with him.

Mary and I did have a nice day today, interrupted every so often by the one PITA student in my class who spent the better part of the last week and a half busting my balls with questions, to the neglect of what he should have been studying. I also learned from my ally at my client company that my invoices haven't been making it to her desk, which would explain why I haven't been paid in a while.

And, I get to enter the wonderful world of LiveMeeting tomorrow morning. That is, unless everyone taking this particular update training is local, in which case I'll be working out of the training room. In either case, I'm going to the office tomorrow, for at least half a day.

There, I feel better.

Thank all of you for your expressions of sympathy for our dear departed Sherman. He was very special, and a very beautiful cat. I wish I had pictures of him in the last few months of his life. He was at his most Siamese, and truly most beautiful, during that time. As for having bad luck with pets...well, we've added three and lost two. That nets out to plus one. We've gone a couple of years without having lost one, so we're doing all right. Nevertheless, losing any of them is a heartbreak, so again, thank you for your kind thoughts.
