I had one of those nights last night were I couldn't turn off my brain, and it kept puzzling over the things I'd been working on during the day. This isn't too strange, because when I'm trying to solve a puzzle during the day, I can't very well just decide to stop mulling it over just because it is six o'clock. The odd thing is that, during the day, I could barely concentrate, couldn't stay focused on my task, and kept looking at other things. So why would I suddenly be fretting over it at night?
Anyway today I implemented the property filter thing, and that's all green. I now plan to spend the day working on a resolver for reverse attributes, which should be interesting. (I don't know why I'm in the mood to drop work jargon into this post, but I am! Sorry.) Sadly our VNC is still vetoed due to a virus, but that's okay because a kitten ate my headphones anyway. Also I seem to have left the other ones in Newark. Oops. Time to go shopping.
I was talking to my cousin a couple days ago about a possible trip I was thinking of taking to Milwaukee in mid-August. "I can't decide now though," I said, "because that's way too far away."
"It's really not that far at all," she pointed out. "Just a little over a month."
"Yes, but before then I have to get home from New Jersey, go to Maine, go to New Hampshire, then to..." I twisted my face thoughtfully. "I think Chicago is next, then Florida, then Belgium. It's just too far away to think about."
"Oh. Well, when you put it that way, I see what you mean."
On the plus side, tomorrow I go on a mini-vacation before my colo that starts monday -- YAY!
