It took until midday yesterday to get my work computer back up and running properly. As a result, I am now running antivirus software on a machine that I control for the first time since I can remember. I think I know the root of the problem now (user foolishness, coupled with an interestingly-disguised virus), but Ill continue to run the anti-virus awhile to be sure.

I had dinner with Casey and her mom on Wednesday night. Caseys mom has a midwestern tint in her voice that one might almost call an accent. Casey doesnt hear it, but I do, thanks to my mutant accent-detecting ability. I curse Thor every day that I didnt develop the ability to fly instead.

Im ready for the weekend! Car washing, Beach going, food eating weekend days are what I need. There has been too much stress this week.

Speaking of eating, after Tuesdays fiasco where I ate pretzels and donuts as comfort food and nothing else (and wasnt comforted, but merely filled), Ive been excellent at cutting snacking out of my diet completely for the last 2 days. Now, to a normal human being, thats no big deal, I know, but in the cosmic game of dice, I apparently traded my ability to eat like anything but an emancipated six-year-old for my ability to detect traces of accents in the people I meet. This, it turns out, was not a good trade for me.

Last one!

Im ripping some of my old electronica onto my hard disk here at work for a potential mix CD. I hear this rumor that Mix CDs are passe, so maybe Ill figure something else out. At least Ill have some different music to choose from on my work machine, and Ive figured out how to get good audio ripping done on my computer. Two plusses for my morning.
