As you my recall, last week I was having problems getting at LJ from my workstation in Evil Banking Neighbor Emergency Backup World Headquarters, to the point where by Friday I'd pretty much given up on it. Today I opened up my third Exploder window and decided "what the hell, let's give it a go." My LJ page popped right up. So...WTF?

Sleeping late yesterday of course meant that I couldn't get to bed at a decent time, not that I tried all that hard. Yes, Civicrack ate my brain, but I was also waiting for an Irish cake to finish up. Still, despite not turning in until 0200, I managed to get up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 0600, eat a decent (if carb-heavy) breakfast, pack my lunch, and motor on over to the Sprawl...in time to miss the 8:04 train, which would have gotten me in to work only slightly late as opposed to excessively late. Well, I can make it up with no problem this week. Even if I hadn't been running late I still would have taken the train, since I have class tonight -the assessment class, again- and am in no position to be writing checks for parking.

Finished Charles Stross' The Hidden Family Friday night and will post a brief review later; am rereading The Atrocity Archives and thinking that I really ought to get a copy of that and Singularity Sky for myself. The Hidden Family will have to wait; the paperback comes out in May.

Definite stroke of good luck to hit the pool on that one.
