Yeah, still not much going on, but here’s the latest in my life.
- Tomorrow there is a job fair in Marion. I’ll take about five copies of
my resume, just in case.
- Tomorrow night is Pascha. I don’t know if I can go yet, since my
insurance expires at one minute after midnight, just as we’re going back into
the church after the Proclamation.
- My column for
was originally going to be published on Monday, but because of a connection
problem, she posted it Friday instead. We’ll see how weekend traffic views it. So
far, no major flamewar. That’s why I chose such an innocuous topic.
- As I type this, I’m downloading the
Slackware installation CD image.
I had to "borrow" a bootable Mandrake 7.2 CD to recover my
system, after an update apparently clobbered the boot kernel. I didn’t realize
this (I thought I had taken steps to prevent that from happening) and when I
shut down the other night during the storm, I wasn’t able to re-boot from the
hard drive. As you can
tell, I was able to get the system back up and running, but not without a
couple headaches first.
- Finally, I decided today that it was time to ditch the long hair. I didn’t just
cut it short; I buzzed it down to the texture that a horse’s summer coat has.
It’s just barely long enough to grasp between my thumb and forefinger. Two
years and three months had passed since my hair was last cut, and that was
just a trim-up for a job interview. Suddenly, I don’t have to worry about
yanking my neck when I sit down, or getting the hair caught in the car window
as I roll it up, or any other problem associated with long hair. And I just step
out of the shower, wipe my scalp twice with the towel, and it’s dry.
Like I said, not a lot of news.
