Is The Week Over, Yet?

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Sometimes you just have one of those weeks. I've had one that ought to last me for the year. Two people I knew died, oddball stuff happened, virtually every piece of personal tech I own has managed to act up in a truly spectacular way. (No dead tech yet, but I haven't resorted to throwing things against the wall, either.) Fold in the standard "you knew the job was dangerous when you took it" stuff going on, and I'm ready to crawl under a rock. I had a fortune cookie the other day that told me I'd enjoy doing something different this weekend. Can just I say that scares the ever lovin' crap out of me at this point?

It hasn't been entirely bad: Look what Paul bought for me:

Oh, and check out this part of the warnings on the package: 


Remember: when child is in use, pointy end may cause harm!

I'm still trying to snag a kitty picture for today, but the felines are not cooperating. There may be an archive shot today.
