"Fullest day ever"

I love this t-shirt.
“Best shirt ever”

When I sleep, my CD player scrolls through a bit over 500 CDs. My day started as always with waking up to something abrasive and incondusive (I hope that's a word) to rest — this morning it was Jad Fair. I got up, and dealt with some of the essential emails. As I'd suspected, since I'd spent the entire weekend creating source materials, there wasn't much for me to do today since the other half of the development team are now very busy. I suspect it'll be that way for the next few days as the software is implemented and the final business and banking things are dealt with. Our fraud screener wanted a huge monthly minimum fee so we've had to go with an alternate solution there, and there's still a little more to deal with on the merch stuff… but as far as I can tell it's all good.

Anyway, the plan for today had been to grab MiL0 from Phil and Carrie and some other little fellow's1 house, go out for breakfast and zip her up to the airport. Now, I'm not particularly known for anything other than erratic impulsive behavior (and I suspect that she may have a penchant for it also)… So breakfast turned out to be in Niagara Falls instead (I'll post some pictures of that later). Hey, it's not that far away and if we timed it just right she'd still make her flight.

After all, you can't really come to this part of Canada without going to the Falls. We checked out the tunnels under the Falls, something I hadn't done since I was a child. But time passes quickly, and we knew that if we left right now we'd get her to the plane on time.

Well… Almost…

We got her to the airport minutes after her gate closed. If it wasn't for the crowded parking lot, it would have been timed perfectly. No big deal though, there was another flight a few hours later. It was a bit nervewracking, but I hope she enjoyed coming along on the other errand I needed to run today:

I dropped off my TT at Howard's place and we hopped into my beast… Seriously, there's not much scarier for me than driving a truck like that at about 110 (kph!) on a highway. It really isn't made for that kind of speed. And, to top it all off, I've somehow lost the car's registration paperwork, insurance paperwork, AND license sticker, which would have made for a huge headache if we'd been pulled over. Anyway, even though that drive put my stress level through the roof we got her to the airport and I hope a good time was had by all.

1 little fellow – I have been asked to remind you that when I use fellow, I use it genderlessly. If I am to speak with any degree of decency, I believe that I should have said little filet or whatever the the female version of fellow is…?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
