Well, I have to admit that this is one of the slower Saturdays I’ve had. Right now I’m down in my kitchen, on the PowerBook, keeping the dogs company. The parents are out at some function at a restaurant off of Beltway 8. I wasn’t invited, but then I’m not sure I would have gone anyway. It was obviously a suit and tie affair, and I don’t really do those (unless it’s a wedding or a funeral).
Of course, this leads in to the fact that I have to get suit dry cleaned and ready in the next week and a half. I’ll be going out to Jackson on the 9th to visit Misty and accompany her to her friend Dani’s wedding. I already checked the suit and it fits okay. However, I apparently need to get a new white dress shirt as mine is about a half an inch to an inch too tight around the collar. Great. Fortunately a tie won’t be an issue either, as I have plenty of those. As near as I remember, this will be the first time I’ve worn a suit in over three years (the last time was Winterfest 2003), so in a way I’m surprised my suit still fits without any issues. Ah, well… it should be a good evening.
On the other hand, I’ll have to go on a business trip earlier that week to Conway, AR. We have a new location there (the site of which I evaluated a couple of months ago), and I’ll have to work on getting it onto our corporate network. Fun fun. I’ll be there two nights, leaving Monday morning and coming back Wednesday morning. Hopefully that will give me enough time to get everything taken care of.
I have to admit to a bit of annoyance. The spacebar on my PowerBook has been giving me issues for the past week or so. In order to help try and fix the issue, the PowerBook was subjected to a somewhat thorough cleaning. The PowerBook looks a lot nicer as a result, but the spacebar is still not working properly. If I hit right at the center with a bit of force, it works. If I’m more than a bit off-center and/or lightly hit the spacebar, it doesn’t register. I’m more than a little irked by it, as I’ve had to backspace several times while writing this post. I think I’m going to have to have this looked at before long.
For now, though, I’m going to go back to some web browsing, chatting with friends, and listening to iTunes. Fun fun…
