Post 3025 - Tuesday

So. First day back to work, after 2 weeks off. I feel fine tonight. Patricia, on the other hand, is in bed, likely for the evening. She is pooped. Exhausted. Seepy. Tired. In zzzz land.

After work this evening we stopped off for some groceries, but not before we dropped off some old clothes at Value Village. In return, they gave us some stamps to complete a card to guarantee us 20% off our next purchase at VV. Great. We get rid of stuff and then get a chance to get more stuff, at a discount. Just what we need.

Where did Newbie go? He was here a minute ago. Little so-and-so.

I have produced 750 words toward my next Frank column. I will be adding some more material during my lunch hour tomorrow and revising it after work, when Patricia has a doctor's appointment. Don't I live an exciting life?

After being away for a spell, it has been nice getting re-used to Fibre Op internet. I am embarrassed it took me so long to get around to getting it. I am convinced that Bell is trying to get people to give up DSL technology by no longer spending money on it. Cynical, but it worked for me.

Say, Thursday after work I will be having dinner with a couple of old friends from university. I have not seen them since they graduated in 1986, which wasn't yesterday. They have been a couple since the first year of university, which wasn't the day before yesterday. I am looking forward to seeing them again. It has been far too long. Can't wait to catch up. I wonder if they still use CP/M? Do they still write their code using the Turbo Pascal screen editor, or have they moved over to Aztec C? And what about that Wordstar, eh? If it is still good enough for George R.R. Martin, it should be good enough for us.

Thursday can't get here soon enough.

See you tomorrow.

P.S. Newbie is back. Moving over to his little cardboard box, where he will sleep the night away.
