Will you wear your black leather chaps?


No.  But I'll wear my jack boots!

I'm still wanting to bitch-slap someone, but it's a co-worker who has been darting around the office like a flibbertigibbet on speed.

I'm about ready to stick my foot out and trip her next time she darts past my desk.

If you'd like some of the same, TCB, just let me know.

Or just leave one of your jack boots in the aisle.

Good afternoon, fellow Dear Readers. It is still foggy here. I dropped the fellas off to kayak; the ladies are shopping somewhere.





I would rather do this than shop.  I'm surprised no one joined you.

For anyone who is not convinced that most of the "guest stars" didn't actually appear in The List Of Adrian Messenger (Kirk appears in only about two of his disguises - the other disguises are worn by an actor named Jan Merlin.  But, I just found out that Mr. Sinatra doesn't appear in one frame of this film save for the reveal at the end - I now know the actor who DID play it in the film proper - my muse Margaret's very own daddy, Dave Willock.  You heard it here first.

If I had to make a guess, I'd say that Buddy won't be coming today, which means I could have jogged - oh, well, first thing tomorrow morning.

DR Laura---

My DH used tons of batteries in his work and he recommends Thomas Distributing:
http://www.thomas-distributing.com/index.htm

Does your camera take AA batteries? They have some called AccuPower 2900mAh's (2900 refers to the number of milli amp hours) and PowerEx's, which have 2700 mAhs. They are both NiMH batteries so they don't have a memory effect like the old NiCAD's did.

A really good charger for them is also made by PowerEx, the MH-C204F. It treats your batteries well and keeps them alive longer. You pay more up front but it's well worth it in the long run.

It's important to charge them pretty quickly after they run down, and if you don't use them, charge them once a month to keep them in good shape.

PM me if you have any more questions for him!

I'm not Laura but thanks for the info for the rest of us!  My parents got me a digital camera for Christmas and the digital camera batteries that I bought for it are already almost dead. :P I've only been playing with it...I haven't actually gone out and taken a whole bunch of pictures.  I've been using ni-cad rechargeable batteries at work for my CD player and cordless headphones headphones for years!  I know that that kind won't last in my camera at all.

Thank you, DR Jane.  For everything.  I'm not sure if I will go to work or not.  I'm thinking not.  By the time the evening rolls around I am just so tired.

DR Danise, only do what you feel like doing.  If you don't want to go into work, then don't.  Everyone will understand.  Right now all that matters is you and your mother.

Hugs.

The Monday Movie Matinee was a huge success.  The "girls" (ages 78, 88, and 90) loved The Queen and the tea party.  They each went home with a take-away bag of cookies.

Ditto, Danise.  If you can take the week off, do it.  Can it be counted as family leave time?

I saw the most incredible blue jay outside my apartment this afternoon.  Well, I assume it was a blue jay.  It was a bird and it was blue.  Very pretty!

You're not the only one.

Well, der B and I didn't make a special trip - we were in town and made a point of heading over.  It was while visiting the Art Institute of Chicago that I was introduced to the works of Gustave Caillebotte, whose Paris Street, Rainy Day is part of their permanent collection, and who was being represented by a show of his work that had been brought in from arround the world.  His painting Les raboteurs de parquet (The Floor-Scrapers) in particular made an interesting impression on me.

(Whistles quietly while everyone else figures out why.)

I'm with you on this one. I love Paris Street, Rainy Day...I couldn't walk away from it when I saw it in Chicago.

DR Elmore, not to worry.  All is in order.  I took care of that about four years ago.  I am so glad that I did.  

Not only for Mom but for myself as well.  I highly recommend that if anyone here hasn't put their wishes to paper that they do so.  It will give you and your loved ones peace of mind.

I haven't seen the original. I have it on an umbrella! Most appropriate!

I shall shortly be on my way to the alumni association meeting, which is taking place at Mo's in Burbank (I am doing all these initial meetings over food - it's so much more fun and so much less stilted and formal).

I have FMLA but the problem is that isn't paid time.  What I worry about is that I might want some time for myself if Mom should pass.  I don't want to rush right back to work or if I feel that I need a day off, I want to be able to take it.  I can't have the paid time off and use it as well.  Sigh.  I have about 7 paid days left.
