Boss Coffee

You know it burns all night

Any day that you wake up to an extra $3800 in your checking account is a good day. I spent about a hour this morning whacking away at various bills and debts, ordering the textbook for my children's lit class from, and ordering a Palm TX to replace the dead Zire. I had been thinking about going for the Tungsten E or the E2, but the integral wifi on the TX was too seductive to ignore. I also invested forty bucks in a hard case, just to be on the safe side. Once that gets here early next week I should be much better about staying on top of things, and not need to lug Cowzilla around so much.

There was a brief rush of work right after I got in, but now I'm in the slow part of the morning. I expect after I get back from recharging my Caribou card that the folks on the Left Coast will have sent me some more work. I hope so, anyway...otherwise I'll have to haul out the Post-it notes and have at the procedures manual, which I'm not looking forward to.

Got the letter from the IRS today - ATC is officially a non-profit, retroactive to May 2003.

I'm not about to run twenty red lights in their honor, but I'm damned happy to see this.

I got my textbooks, my clipboard, lead me to the station...

Well, it looks like one of the five Praxis II exams I want to take (probably Business Education) is going to go by the boards, since three of the four tests are two-hour tests given in the first testing session, Business Ed would be #4, and I really don't want to wait until the end of April to be taking any of these. I suppose I could hurry up and register online for the tests on the 16th of this month, but I want to do a little more reading and brushing up on the two target languages of mine that Virginia requires a test for (German and Spanish) before I take any of the tests, so that's not going to happen.

I also need to get copies of my Metro State transcript sent off to Richmond and St. Mary's. Evidently when I registered with the latter, I forgot to take care of that minor detail. It's probably pointless to do it now, but it can't hurt.
