I'm plowing ahead. Shine, shine, o new Jerusalem.

I'm having coffee today. I went to bed at a reasonable hour, but I popped awake around 5 and could not stay in bed past 6, which is not reasonable. However, it gave me time to do my laundry. I was going to do it in the evening, but I got a call at 9, just as I was about to do it. It was cute, the caller apologized, wondering if it was too late in the evening. Of course not, it was only 9. The call went long, so I washed my socks in the morning. Overall, pleasant, would do again.

I got a text message last night from the girl across the street saying she thought she was going insane. I took it as a sign that she may not want to remain enemies, but it was far too late in the evening to respond. I hope the best for her, but that's outside my bailiwick. I presume her boyfriend can help her out: that's what he's there for. I certainly don't have the resources to spare. I am certainly happier when incommunicado.

I'm supposed to lend my expert advice tomorrow about sampling methodologies for a customer satisfation survey we're running. Seriously, I just have a few rules of thumb and the rest is just dictated by business needs. Well, maybe I'll be able to help them think rigorously about what their needs are. But they wouldn't let me have that much control of the meeting, they just want me to say, "Um, based on what you said, sure, we can do that, we'll need X randomly selected from each group. Done." Oh good grief: I just realized something that will make this a headache. Namely, the entire philosophy of this survey.

R S Thomas: cool stuff. Very Luddite. Recommended by an ochlophobe, so, I thought, why not? I was not disappointed.

I have to figure out how to live. It feels like everything is a game of Mornington Crescent and I've left my line velocity slide rule at home.

I've got to cool it down. But I'm plowing ahead.
