Zod

On The Plus Side, It's Friday, With a Long Weekend Ahead

I woke up at 5:30 with a migraine.  Full on, already in bloom.  I had to bumble around for my Imitrex in the dark, which took about 15 minutes and woke up Jane.

An hour and a half later, it was still going strong, so I took the other half pill and remained prone.

This means the trash didn't get taken out this morning.

It also led to me drifting back to sleep.  Fortunately, a cat fight woke me up at 8:20.

I manage to leave the house more or less on time and traffic cooperated.  But when I got to the office, I realized I'd forgotten 1) my cellphone, and 2) my wallet.

On top of that, the day is just dragging.

And to top it all off, I just managed to unplug a PC while it was in the middle of a factory system restore.  I honestly have NO IDEA what effect this is going to have on the process, or if I've just killed it completely.

Jane's on her way to pick me up for lunch.  With my luck, we'll get hit by a meteor while we're out.
Awesome Bear!

It took five tries, but the PC Recovery Disks are finally working.  I just hope they manage the last twenty percent in the next twenty minutes.  I don't mind taking the machine home to work on over the weekend, but I don't really want to stay late.

Considering this particular machine was ridiculously expensive, my relief is palpable.

Tonight, C-Monster and I are Jane-less, so we'll probably go eat someplace bad for us and then hit Half-Price Books or something.  Once I go home and get my wallet.

The recovery took quite a bit longer than twenty minutes.  Of course, since I had to pick up C, I improvised.  As it's a notebook PC with a good battery, so I let it finish in the car.

I think I might have violated a couple of HP and/or Chrysler warranties when I was running through the Windows setup screens at stoplights, but I swear I never touched a button while the car was moving.

Took C-Monster to CiCi's, then Half-Price Books.  For those who have an HPB nearby, they're running an additional 20% off sale this weekend.

I now have a michelada and quiet.  This is a good thing.
