E-Mail from the Future

Holy crap, Microsoft, have you never heard of anyone exchanging e-mails with someone in another [multiple expletives] time zone?

Was it just OH SO DIFFICULT to record the time zone in the e-mail headers?

I can see that your research budget isn't helping to resolve any real problems.

There's something I should be doing now, but I don't want to do it, and would very much rather do something else.

But eventually I'll do the thing I should, perhaps a bit later than others desire.

Not right now, dear, I'm updating my blog.

Sticky, Damp Floors

I forgot to close the windows last night, and it rained. The house is humid, and the floors are at once sticky and damp.

Spills Left to Stand

The spill itself is not so bad. But leaving it on the floor, and forgetting to tell anyone about it, so that it soaks into the wood, the carpet, and my socks? That's not good at all.
