Well this has been a busy week. I've been doing some fun stuff at work and am gonna have to see if I can't get knoppix working at home to try and continue to play with it while I'm here. It sucks that I wasn't able to burn a CD while still in California, but my blank CD-Rs have apparently not been happy with the thermal changes they've been exposed to. Well I'm busy with family stuff through Monday when Best Buy will be open again to get a CD-R here. But they'll have some after-Christmas sales then, so I guess I need to go anyway.
And beyond work stuff, I've been wracking my mind to get Ishy cared for. I know that I really aught to be getting this dealt with long before I actually leave, but since I'm always able to get him properly cared for, I never the negative re-informcement I need. But regardless I owe Andrew, Lexi some whiskey, and Mike some tequila for their help. Thanks guys.
On the other hand, I flew back with all of my shopping done, so I was pretty far ahead of the game and didn't have to accompany Jaime or Cherie on their last minute runs to Riverhead. Of course this meant a buttload of baggage to deal with through security. And apparently they have no problems opening up electronics (like knifing the original packing tape) to do inspections. Good thing I didn't wrap anything pre-flight, but I learned that lesson two years ago.
And of course today was spent in a whole other hell that will get it's own post latter tonight. Until then, there's some corned beef with my name on it.
It's good to be home.
