Naked civic boosterism, the ongoing trials of an old mostly-not-haunted Charming Wreck of a house, cake, yarn, cats, and cake.
Wednesday, May 30, 2007
The house sitters are ready to move in, lots of cat food will soon be on hand, and the last of our new plants will be in the ground by the end of the day. There is a road trip in our future -- two weeks in our future. I should be concentrating on work. I have a coffee table book that I need to finish, a direct mail piece to mock-up for the client, and empty Happy Meal boxes that require something self promotional and of actual interest to our clients.
Instead, I am configuring a company laptop for personal emergency use while on the road, making Google maps for each day's driving, and blogging checking the connectivity of said laptop by testing its airport connectivity. Oh, and flying over the terrain of our trip in Google Earth. That's important, too.
I'm slipping into short timer mode too early. Maybe I'll take an extra day just to make the vacation start that much sooner.
