Thanksgiving

21 Nov
Happy thanksgiving, folks!

I’m off for a few days to experience my first Thanksgiving celebration. And I have to earn it by waking up at 5 am tomorrow, taking a flight, and being driven (and maybe drive) for about 3 hours.

Then I’ll travel again, for work. Next Saturday. Through Chicago and to Tokyo. I’ve been there already 3 years ago, it doesn’t seem so long ago, though.

And the week after I’m back in Boston for 10 days.

I’d like it if time just stopped, in fact. Right now would be good, since I’m going to bed in a few minutes ;)

All is well that ends well

15 Nov

All is well that ends well.
Or rather, so far so good.

I picked up the newspaper this morning for the T ride and next to the sudoku game is the horoscope. Here’s what I read:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Lady Luck is working on your behalf in repayment of your latest efforts.

And I told Amy,

“Amy! DHL are to deliver the Precious back to me today. That horoscope means the Precious will be fixed for good, now!”

She said something like,

“yes, dear, yes…”

and she nodded and smiled (gracious and kind friend I have here!). So I added,

“it’s written in the newspaper and it’s the truth. You’ll see.”

I’m making that up because I don’t remember what we said. There was a lot of joking around this. Anyway. DHL just delivered the Precious and it boots!

It has a spanking new logic board (I haven’t seen it for myself, mind you) and they removed a bad part (non-apple-branded RAM that my sysadmin purchased and installed a long while ago, and that they didn’t return).

I don’t believe in horoscopes, by the way.
Why? Simply because the odds that DHL delivered my Precious to all the Leos of the world are pretty pretty slim.
