#1252: Tuesday morning!

Work last night was different: everything got done.

I was doing Softlines (read: clothes) all night. As usual, I slammed everything, because I am good.

The floor was done before 5; the back room was done before 5:30. I even had time to bring in the back wall (ie stuff that was taken out of the back room before the truck unload started) and get everything totally done, and left at 5:40 with the boss' blessing.

You've got to love a night like that.

I had the usual amount of backstock for softlines--about 18 carts' worth, plus two flatbeds--but because I'm efficient, it didn't seem like all that much work. In aggregate, it was, but you just do one bit at a time, and suddenly the cart's empty, so you go get another one....

So I left at 5:40, and came home, and had a shower; and in a little bit I'm going to eat something--I haven't decided what, yet--and then hit the hay for a few hours.

When I got home, I went down the driveway for the paper, and was accosted by the neighbor's dog--some kind of terrier, a scottie maybe. The thing started barking, then came speeding across the road at about mach nine, and then came up to me, barking, his tail going full speed.

"Hey, this isn't your territory; it's mine," I told him. He didn't care. He jumped up on my leg, still barking, tail still wagging furiously. His master called him, and he ran home.

"Sorry," she said. I just smiled and waved. I like dogs.

Sunday afternoon I got engrossed in a House, MD marathon. I'd sat down to watch my car shows but noticed that that show was on, so I ended up watching several hours' worth of episodes that I'd never seen before. I really liked the "Three Tales" episode, where Dr. House substitute teaches a class on diagnostics and presents three cases of leg pain. (One of which turns out to be the tale of how he acquired his limp and appetite for vicodin.)

Then, after that was over, I watched the new eps of my car shows, and then caught an episode of Outer Limits from 1997 with Teryl Rothery in a supporting role. She was like the third most-important character in the story. Longtime anime fans know her as the voice of Kodachi Kuno from Ranma 1/2.

And dang she was hot. I was surprised. I never realized. I mean, dang, esp. with the glasses she wore for the role.

I also didn't know she was in Stargate: SG-1.

It's neat to see the voice actors themselves doing live action. I've seen a few Ranma voice actors in live roles.

Well, we got over two inches of rain in the past 24 hours. The grass will need cutting soon, I expect.

    Unless I'm mistaken, I think I finished the "Shadowlands" story. I wasn't expecting to, but I pretty much made it to the end of the campaign quests.…
