You can cry tough baby, it's alright. You can let me down easy, but not tonight.

Jan: How do you spell "overridden"?
Me: o-v-e-r-r-i-d-d-e-n.
Jan: You have it wrong in one place in this 300 page book.
Me: Okay, I'll get right on that.
(Sometime later)
Me: That's odd, I can't find the error when using find in Acrobat on a PDF version of the book. It must have gotten fixed at some point.
(At a chance (by which I mean daily meeting) involving both Emma and Jan...)
Me: So it looks like it's been fixed already.
Jan: That can't be.
Me: Well, I was looking at a possibly more recent version. So it's possible it got fixed within a round of bug fixes.
Jan: Bah. Not possible.
(Sometime later, in the original source)
Me: That's odd. There it is. Why didn't acrobat pick it up?
And how did he know?

Just a note, Bunny's book club is next Tuesday, at Panera's on the Drum Hill Rotary at 7:00.

So Sunday I went to a new bookclub, for Hadassah, discussing a collection of short stories entitled Lost Tribe. It was the adult type of book club, where you discuss the book a little bit, life a little bit, etc. If it were a Maj game, my grandmother would have been screaming, but I liked it. These are people I'm just meeting so I was glad to have the chance to learn about them.
My regular book club was Monday night, and we had a good discussion. Only a couple of us liked the book, but hopefully by the end, some more of us appreciated it better. We read Who Censored Roger Rabbit and I really liked it. The black humour really appealed to me. I'm sorta in that state of mind where can really appreciate making the most of unusual situations.

Hoppie is excited by the possibility of a month without travel.
I made bourbon, chocolate, pecan walnut tarts (in celebration (however belatedly) of my birthday.
Tomorrow is Lanna's last day, and I'll be missing it.

You Are 30 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

What Age Do You Act?
