while the blossoms...

Er, no. Just, no.

'Twas a pretty productive day at work. We have a summer student, an undergrad from a midwestern university. The projects are due in written form on Friday, to be followed up by an oral presentation a week from Wednesday. It's converging, but not to what we wanted, exactly.

So I spent 2 hours this afternoon trying to reformat a data file so the standard fitting package can read it. That's me: reformat file from colleague A so that colleague B can use it in program C.

This evening, I went back to working on what's likely to be Chapter 10 of my revised novel. I've just now (halfway to the bottom of a generous shot of spiced rum, thank you very much) realized that my protagonists arrived in Reno in separate vehicles (or at least on different days) but went home again together.

I ditched a car in Reno
just to watch it...
er... um...
So, yeah. I think I'll just go to bed. Some days were not made for doing this kind of stuff.

Tiebreak: I blanked a blank in Reno, just to watch it/him/her (you know...) blank.

My favorite line in that meme is from Nellie McKay. I don't remember the name of the song, but if I remember the line right, it's:

"I punched a man on Broadway, just to watch him cry."

just to watch it sink, slowly, into the desert as the blowing dust ate away at the paint and the sun bleached the upholstery into the whiteness of bone.

Sell the car for another stake at the tables.

Or have some REAL fun with it and make them fly home.

Or get a roof rack and stack one car on top of the other. (Added bonus if the bottom car is a Prius.)
