Shaving by Candlelight

There was a scheduled power outage last night. It was supposed to be over by 7, but dragged on through the morning. Shaving by candlelight is not exactly like dining by candlelight, but does have a certain touch of elegance, with brass candlesticks on each side of the sink. The water was cold, just like in Sri Lanka.

Software upgrade update: I just sent a note to my wife that says it all.

The migration is "officially" complete, though we have set alarms to alert us to any stability problems that come up over the weekend. We migrated over 4,000 courses and zillions of associated files and records. This culminates a process we began last February and will, hopefully, avoid the new software implementation problems that have typically plagued AU in the past. In fact, our process could be a model for large upgrades, which are often problematic, not only at AU, but everywhere. We shall see. I feel still keyed up, edgy, and beat. And I hardly did any of the work. I was simply accountable for its successful outcome.

See you tomorrow, mit groceries and a log splitter.

Lookng forward to the long weekend, though there will be Paradise Poisoned page proofs to continue editing.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
