None The Less
Tuesday. It's only Tuesday and it already feels like a hundred hours on the job. Which is a glitch; a common glitch, but a glitch none the less. It feels like one hundred hours for about an hour or so and then I snap out of it and fall back into feeling like fifty and the day clicks back into focus. Two days that feel like forty or fifty hours is the routine around here. But I mention it, not because it needs to be mentioned, but because it's pretty much all that's able to cut through the fog as I sit here this evening.

Wednesday. A good night's sleep last night and things are fine. A nice pasta lunch with a glass of the house red, some futzing in the lab this morning, setting up some software on a server located in Mexico City this afternoon. Odd to set up software on a box located half way around the world (as in London or Hong Kong or St. Petersburg), but we do it all the time. When I was a kid....

Whoa! None of this “when I was a kid” shit!

Of course. What was I thinking. Still, a good day, Ms. Emmy sitting on my lap, thoughts of a walk down the way for a flask of sake and a shrimp and Avocado salad. And California rolls. Just a thought. I'll fight it. I've had more than enough to eat and drink today, but a nice idea none the less.

The photograph was taken in an office building lobby in Oakland with a Nikon D2x mounted with a 17-55mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at 1/50th second, f 2.8 and ISO 100.
