Happy Columbus Day!

Which is really tomorrow, but you know the Feds, always looking for that three-day weekend...

Up early on account of my niece (who has school today) and my mother, who was loudly noodging my niece at 0800. Augh. If I didn't have to be adjusting my personal clock to get closer to a normal 8-5/9-5 schedule anyway, I'd be more irritated.

Legacy of Ashes looks like an interesting book, and one that may well provoke me to get a local library card. I've never been all that interested in the history of the CIA or the other intel agencies, since the really good stories are all classified, but after the recent bureaucratic infighting that the lads at Powerline have termed "Three Years of the Condor" I've become curious how the agency that accomplished such great things in the 1950s and 60s turned into such a politicized POS.

Time for coffee, breakfast, and drugs.

Waiting for the end of the weekend

Spent most of the day watching vintage (TOS) Star Trek on G4, which was a good time except for the ads, which were pretty annoying - especially the ones for their upcoming Ninjafest and Horrorfest. Not watching either of those, thanks.

Got laundry done, got showered, and placed calls to the local Accountemps offices. Hopefully one of them will have something for me tomorrow, something with 40 hours a week and decent hourly pay. We'll see what happens.
