#4242: NOT riding the bike to work

I overslept this morning. *sigh* Still, I ended up getting to work only 8 minutes late, which is not too shabby. I've been feeling kind of under the weather the past few days, and this morning featured an...eruption...which left me feeling even more fatigued.

On cool days like today they don't turn the AC on before the store opens, which means that it's too warm in there until about noon-ish, and that further saps my will to live. But I'm able to function, and function I did; and I had a fortuitous break in the AM insanity for an emergency trip to the can before the Imodium I took before showering finally began to kick in. (Or perhaps the old gut was simply running out of ammunition.)

Things cooled off and I had time to get some work done, and things were slow enough in the early afternoon that I took my lunch break half an hour early; but when I got back, there was a line forming, and we were pretty busy until it was past time for me to leave. In any case, the day passed with relative speed and ease, and though I had work to do I never felt like I was overwhelmed. That really helps a lot.

When I got home from work, I found that my wife had gone to great effort to make chicken parmesan--and she did it right, too, and it was delicious.

I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with this computer--do a complete factory restore of the hard drive (thus necessitating reinstalling everything) or what. What I do know is I'm too tired to think about it right now.
