Verizon worked their little butts off for hours trying to get me repaired. And once again they demonstrated why one should NOT tie one's phone in with one's internet service -- because when that service crashes, you got no way to call unless you have a cell phone with another service. Hence my keeping Sprint as my mobile phone people.
I'm almost back to human after 10 days of work in California -- well, eight days (including travel) broken up by two days of seeing friends and family. I took the day off and rearranged the crap in my apartment (including pulling a number of books out of boxes and making them available to me, again) then got down to work on LD and slowly...slowly the story is coming together. Who knows, it might actually turn out to be decent instead of adequate. Daniel's revealing a wicked streak in him that may prove to be fun, and Tad's proven to be a world-class manipulator. Who knows what Van will do to keep up with them.
And now here's something just for me.
