Perhaps instead the defining moment of today is when my work computer for some inexplicable reason ran the internet as if it were connected at 600 baud instead of with a high speed connection. My law practice is very driven by e mail, google, an odd law database called loislaw and various other 'net things. I have too many things to do to allow this to happen, and the computer down the hall was an imperfect substitute. Was the highlight of my day instead when the really great guy who does our computer stuff plugged in the anti-virus disk and said "this should take half an hour", some six hours ago? Maybe instead it is that I am here at 8 p.m., post-Buffy, post-Smallwood, contemplating my day.
I am carrying a bit more than I like to carry right now. The good part is that it makes me a bit less self-obsessed, though, sadly, I am still far too self-conscious and worried about others' good opinions. The bad part is that I feel a little stressed. I see now that I am running roughly one silly poll a week. Maybe there's a reason for that. Of course, it may just be that I love comments, when I intend to get comments, but that's a separate post for a separate day. Today I'm just ready for dinner and perhaps NYPD Blue.
