After an entirely too short night and a complicated morning, followed by a few hours of negotiating the turbulent torrents of bureaucracy that pass for health policy in this country (in a flashback of sorts1), I compounded things by making the utterly asinine mistake of checking my work e-mail (through which I had a glimpse at what is to be the upcoming week when my leave ends and I get back to work).
So I need to vent a little, and hereby declare that:
- I am not, admittedly, in a good mood (something that a longish, but necessary walk in excellent weather has already tempered down and a good book is sure to fix overnight).
- The Yaki engine changes I’ve been making are hereby declared “on extended trial” (i.e., this site has been running smoothly enough for the past 24h, so I won’t mess around with code anymore until Summer), so books it is for passing the time in betwixt minding the kids until the week is out.
- I will wait for three days, open Google Reader, and hit “mark all as read”, thereby nullifying the current bout of Apple-related news frenzy (which, by the way, confirms my original judgement regarding the-news-site-that-shall-not-be-named-run-by-acned-teenagers).
As a corollary of sorts to the above, I will now endeavor to take a nice nap. It’s going to be a long night.
1 I was right, by the way – the likelihood of there being a similar day for a year was zero. If you make it a year and three days, though, it was a resounding one.
