Post 3512 - Thursday

Past 10:30.

A busy day at work. And a busy one here at home. I have spent the last nearly 3 hours working on an upcoming article for Frank. Just sent in the draft to my editor. Hope he likes it. I will let you know when it runs.

I'm off on Friday, but I have already booked part of my dance card for the day. I have to get up much earlier than I'd like to, in order to run an errand. I will come back here and sleep afterward.

Man, why is the wifi so crappy in this part of the house? It's at like 58%, and the router is just one floor down. It'd likely be a better signal on the top floor. Frigging fibre op.

Tim Horton's Roll-Up-The-Rim-To-Win is likely wrapping up soon. I have only won a single coffee this season. A guy at work keeps giving me his cast off winnings. Some of those potatoes they sell, and a donut. There are terrific prizes this year, but I have not had a sniff of them.

I am wondering, my Canadian readers. What is the biggest prize you have ever won from this contest? The biggest prize a friend of yours has ever won?

Years ago, an old man who used to work for my father, and who died not long after Dad did, won an iPod. He wasn't sure what it was, and hadn't a clue how to use it. I think he was going to give it to a nephew or something. He was perhaps hinting for me to buy it, but I didn't want it. Of course, phones today have all kinds of songs on them. And I still have a Sansa Clip Plus, which has 4gb on board and can accommodate up to... 16gb of additional storage. Can hold thousands of songs. But it also has a built-in FM radio. I use that feature all the bloody time. People think I'm listening to a box of Chiclets.

Do they still make Chiclets?

I think I will turn in. Early day tomorrow.

See you then.
