The week has been good and bad. Well what week isn't like that? Work is unpleasant at the moment. It shouldn't be, I suppose with the prospect of good things to come, but nothing ever moves fast enough for me. I've been working on the same thing for a week - a problem that should be solvable in a day. It is just so frustrating to be working with only the screen reader. I think I will try to by the screen magnifier on my own and see if I can get RSB to reimburse me. It doesn't look like anyone will either recommend the software or approve it if recommended. I base that on nothing by third-hand opinions. *sigh* guess I'd best dig in Monday and find out before I spend the biggest part of a thousand dollars.
Went to the coffee shop with a coworker yesterday. We dashed to Panera's got some standard cups out of the thermos bottles and dashed back. We got the bottom of the bottle leaving us with a somewhat bitter brew. At that, it was better than what I can manage at work. I am looking for a coffee press to upgrade the workday brew, but it may have to wait a while. I'll need to go to Columbia to get one that I want, I think.
I have passed the last couple of evenings listening to Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land. It used to be a favorite of mine despite the deprecations of the author. I find that listening to it is relatively enjoyable as I don't have to worry about trying to remember anything I can already quote chapter and verse. I know, there are several of you out there going "How can you possibly enjoy re-reading a book? Especially, how can you enjoy re-reading a book you know well?" I have no answer. I listen to music I already know and read (used to read, that is) books I have practically committed to memory. I can't explain it. It is just the way it is.
Today will be a quiet day, I think. My sister is out for the weekend and Joe and Lisa will be out playing D&D today so it will just be me and my mother at home. That is not necessarily a recipe for tranquility, but one can hope.
