Overtime!
For the first time in my career, I worked overtime. When one is salaried, it's not easy to have your boss agree to overtime. But the elementary lab needed getting done ASAP and they considered it enough of a priority for me to work some today.

I'm glad we did it this way. It only took me 3 1/2 hours to get the job done. Since there was NO ONE around, I didn't get interrupted every 5 minutes about some account problem, computer problem, or printer problem like usually happens during the school day. Yes, there were setbacks. There's always setbacks when I take on a computer task, it seems. But the setbacks were little ones, not the frickin' huge ones that usually plague me. So, hooray! The elementary lab is DONE!

I was done by 5pm, and that was early enough in the evening to drive to Fairborn to The Bookery to get 3 months worth of Doctor Who Magazine and Dreamwatch (well, it might not have been 3 months worth, it just felt like it) plus The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 2.

Then I went to the Evil Puppy Mall (ask judiang why it's called that) to look around. Had a Great Steak sandwich and fries and orange pop for supper. (The sandwich really wasn't all the great - that's just the name of the shop.) Spent money at Waldenbooks (bad me, more manga - trying Fake and Ranma 1/2 next). Discovered there's now a Williams Sonoma in the Evil Puppy Mall - woohoo! Now I can browse overpriced kitchen shit! Cool!

I returned home after that and have been avoiding working on the Lowry reunion address book. Tomorrow is the reunion and I intend to hand over the reins to someone else, but first I need to get it up to date. Probably something I can do after church but before the reunion. Or so I keep telling myself.

Current Mood: complacent complacent

Three months worth of DWM...What a wonderful thought. I buy it from a nearby newsagency for an annoying $15 AUS, and it's a couple of months behind england and america. */end DWM bitch*

Glad the computers were being nice :P

Manga!

Have you tried Maison Ikkoku?
I thought Orange Maramlade was cute. =)

I own Sanctuary (it's a bit violent and definately adult) and it's a great little series.

*thinks* A' A' Prime? that's a good Shojo Manga.

Re: Manga!

Nope. Only tried three series so far (Eerie Queerie, Fake, and Ranma 1/2). I might try more once I've finished these. And read all of the science books I just ordered from the Science Book Club...

What's Shojo Manga? (I'm a newbie in all sense of the word to Manga.)

Re: Manga!

No tsure I ever replied to this.. so here goes.

Shojo manga is Manga aimed at young girls and women. =) It also usually involves romance. To my understanding it is intensely popular and a driving force in Asian culture. =)
