What a day!!!!!!

The madness at work continues. I got there at six and around noon realized I hadn't had breakfast yet - fortunately, lunch was only a few minutes away. Then suddenly it was time to go home. I went ahead and scheduled comp time for later in the week, but it's anyone's guess as to whether I'll get it (although it would be nice) - it's amazing to me how difficult something so easy has proven to be (basically, the upgrade to the software includes more on-screen work, and less paper-shuffling - in theory it should work well, and I believe eventually, as we get our sea legs, it WILL be more efficient. However, at the moment, it's sloppy and the exact polar opposite of "efficient." We haven't even finished Monday's work yet).


This evening I bake cookies for the June Birthday goodie day tomorrow - treats, I think, will do wonders for morale. Of course, we were all as giddy as though we'd been drinking margaritas all day by 3 o'clock, anyway, but still.

I was washing dishes and I went to set a pot on the dish rack (yes, we do our own dishes - neither of us really believes in a "dishwasher" - and for the curious, it was a three-quart Paul Revere copper-bottom pot). I was trying to balance it precariously on the mixing bowl and glasses already there, when it literally leaped from my hands and dragged a glass with it. I watched as, in slow-motion, the glass hit the concrete floor along with the pot. CLANG! The glass didn't break! I was about to gasp with relief when the glass continued up, up, over, somersault, and SMASH!!!!!!!! It burst into a billion pieces.

I was barefoot. I went to get some shoes on before cleaning up.

It's been a dropsy couple of days...

Now, I thought I would have been worth more. I've done so much to be so much healthier than I was a few years ago...

If you're only worth a little over $4,000, then my cadaver could probably be bought for the price of a cheeseburger.

Amazing trick with the glass. 8-0

In honor of your experiment with glass -- today's Ozy & Millie.

Okay, you've now crossed a line. I thought I was an open-minded guy, but this just totally boggles my mind:

"neither of us really believes in 'dishwasher.'"

Sorry. Just never saw the need for something where you had to wash them before the machine did, and then often afterward, as well. I might as well do it myself, right the first time, and waste a lot less water. (We had one once, while I was growing up, and it was more of a pain than a convenience - and I'm talking about parents who bought EVERY SINGLE TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT the second it was available - I was the first person I knew with a microwave, and we were the first to have cable, too; after having been the only ones with HBO.)

What kills me is Barb steadfastly doesn't seem to want a DRYER.

So what you're actually saying is, you don't believe in 1970s dishwashers. I wouldn't want one, either. You would be amazed at how well they work now...

Meh. There's only two of us. If they install one as part of a modern kitchen, I might use it - or I might not. It's just one convenience I never really felt a need for. Don't know why. I'm rarely what one would consider technophobic, just... meh.

Last night lj wouldn't let me in to comment on this post no matter how many times I tried, but now, rather belatedly, I'm here and can say you're lucky none of that shattered glass bounced into your foot, 'cuz owwwww.

I was having trouble with LJ last night (and this morning), too.

ANYWAY, I'm rather certain that in three months' time, after many sweepings and cleanings, I =WILL= step on glass that has been lurking somewhere all that time and it will jam deeply and painfully into my foot, because that almost always happens after we break something...
