Or the personality, or something. I've stayed up way too late way too many times and am attempting to early-shift this morning to fix up some new system loads in the plant. Finally seem to have things running so-so, so here's my five minutes-o-rant.


I think it's cute when the dudes upstairs go all schizo about new system loads. Yes, there's always a bit of pain for those first ten minutes or so because, "OMG! ICONS MOVED!" But hey, guess what? It's all working.

And I'm pretty sure the Princess is over in her cube watching General Hospital off the web. Hard at work as usual. Though, to be honest, it's probably better she's not actually working.

I finally got fed up this weekend and went ballistic on the back room. Completed the main painting and installed about half the floor in about 36 hours. The dogs appear to be in lurve with the new floor. As soon as I laid the first tile Pup2 came in, wagged her tail, and started walking across it over and over again, smiling away. Each new tile she needed to test by walking across it. It was funny. Pup1, older, wiser, more patient, waited until I had a large section done she could lay on. And let's be honest, that's what flooring is all about.

Oh, it's dark as hell. And I like it that way.

I could actually feel the room closing in around me as I painted. It went from a bright, cheery yellow to a deep, oppressive bluish purple. You could sense the light closing down as you went. Now it feels like a cave. A dark, dreary cave.

Ah, comfort.

Tonight I'll try shuffling things around to finish the floor and start thinking about where I'm gonna put the countertop/desk. And the general design of it. I know what all needs to sit on it, I just have to consider the layout. No more freakin' folding table desks. Done with that shit.

Sadly, I think it may be time to part with the old couch. It just eats too much of the room, and I need that room to be a workspace. It'll be tough to let it go. A lot of fond memories on that couch. But, the memories will remain long after the item itself is gone. And I need my space.


This is what we usually see of LLT during the day. She likes to keep track of everybody, but just can't keep the eyes open during daylight.

And finally a proper DOF for a dandelion photo:

Tad bit underexposed. I hate what JPG conversion does to the background, making it appear all dimpled with squares. On the real pic, it's soft and smooth blur. But nobody wants multi-meg pitchurs on the webranets.

BTW, I'm pretty sure the neighbors now think I'm even nuttier than what they used to think I am. I've been spending a lot of time laying on the ground with a camera the past few days. Oh well.

looks like the lizard is a giant from land of the lost or something.

at full scale, I thought she looked like a dragon sleeping in the entryway to her den.
