Retarded

Dumb

Early this morning, before I even made it in the door to work, I was told that a Senior V.P. had dropped his blackberry this morning, rendering it unusable, and was leaving at noon for a week. Usually, I send my blackberry guy to do this, but since he was out, I drove to the store, and purchased him a replacement. $482. I got back and gave it to one of my tech's to swap SIM cards and restore from backup while I filled out an expense report, which was approved that day and will be deposited in my next paycheck.

It wasn't until I got home that I realized I'd put it on my Visa Check Card, debiting my checking account.

Dumb.

Sometimes, I feel exactly like the absent-minded professor, but only when I have to explain these things to my wife!

Packed.

I've made my 'Washington' CD. I've decided upon an mp3 CDROM this time around in hopes I can enjoy it in my room. Included are the following:


  1. All the King's Men

  2. Masada

  3. Serenity

  4. Something Wicked This Way Comes

  5. STRIPES

  6. The Black Dahlia

  7. The Nun's Story




I'm going to walk with my wife to pick up the boy, say my goodbye's during the walk home, get in my car which is already loaded, and leave. I'll stop by work to park, have one last scooby-snack with galinda822, and catch the shuttle to the airport. I'm pretty excited about delving into "Until I Find You" again, as I haven't picked it up since I returned from NY.

It's cold in DC, so I put on a long-sleeve back Polo. I chose to wear the boots and pack the shoes to save space, and I've been moved back from the Marriott across the street from the Hilton Washington, to the Hilton Washington, where I hear our convention coincides with a convention of transvestites. Should be fun!
