“I've got the Package.”

Gotta love Amtrak. drarwenchicken asked me if I'd pick up our mother at the train station (she's in town for the Bridal Shower). The Starlight Express is scheduled to arrive at 3:40 p.m., but we all know it never arrives at that time, don't we? Well, we thought it was going to be 8:15, then 8:30, so I went downtown and at 8:28 they announced that that it would arrive at 9:15. I briefly considered returning home so I could work on the comic for tomorrow, but I decided to wait just in case the train arrived earlier. It did, but only by 5 minutes. For a total of 5 hours, 30 minutes behind schedule.

So I dropped her off at drarwenchicken's house, and came home to finish the comic. I didn't mean to stay up to 11:00 to do it, but that's how it worked out. So THEN I'm preparing the HTML update, and the Batch Find & Replace tool announces that it's at the end of its trial period, and I have to buy it now. And I hate being told what to do, so I don't. I cut and paste by hand, so if there's ever a time for Virtual Doughnuts to be won for Spot the Muck-Up, it's tomorrow morning. See you then!
