8AM. Why the hell am I anything but deep in REM sleep at eight o’clock in the morning? Why the hell is anyone awake at this godly hour?
I’m awake because (a) I had to drive Amethyst to work because it snowed, and (b) “today is my Tuesday”. The week had five Mondays in it, so it’s not surprising that it should bleed over into the weekend. Nor is it welcome. Fortunately, all I have to do is set up one remote server and get a search engine running on it. Should be easy. It’s not… the client doesn’t seem to understand his motivation for paying me. I do my best to keep a good humor about such things but it’s frustrating that I so often must spend hours on the phone with the guy while he fiddle-fucks around only to finally accept that the thing I suggested right at the start should be done.
Just to add injury to insult, my wireless keyboard just shit out its liver so I’ve had to revert to running the old one that’s flaky. Guess I’ll find out about Logitech’s warranty service on Monday. A quick look at their support forum shows that the problem I’ve got is a common one and they’re quick to replace the things when they fail this way — time will tell.
It seems to be a good time to stop tempting fate here. Be well, friends and neighbors!
