I was saved by reading something like 350 episodes of "The White Board", a furry Alaskan paintball web comic which is even stranger than that description suggests (Read it!).
After work I went to see "Mr. Brooks", a movie with a very clever plot and a good cast playing unlikeable characters that REALLY needed a competent technical advisor.
Tomorrow I head to Rend Lake with the kayak for a messabout. I am less than thrilled by this prospect, but I think I will get over it...
