Flash in the Pan

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I worked today – if you can call watching movies on Disney “working”. Oh, I did my job, too, but it was dead as a doornail. I zoomed through reports because there wasn’t anything else going on except reports. (I usually put the “multi” in multi-tasking.)

UNLucky Numbers

LAST-SECOND UPDATE THANKS TO LENOVO FUCKING UP: They had the Wrong. Damned. Delivery. Address. I canceled my order with them. G says I should reach out to them tomorrow. I say HELL no.
