Holy crap, it's almost August

I like my job. I really do. When it's good, which is most of the time, it's like building nifty stuff out of Legos.

This past week, I've been fishing for the Legos one at a time in a sandbox that an entire preschool class peed in. With bare feet and concrete gloves.

The upside is that I'm learning more about Tomcat Java application architecture than I ever thought I'd need. The downside is that Googling for answers is like reading hieroglyphics. I'm absorbing a lot more than I realize, but it's still hella draining. At least I haven't been a total slouch with creativity, as I'll demonstrate a bit later.

After 12 years and 100,000 miles, we're retiring My Very First Car(tm) in favor of a Prius. We handed over a deposit, picked a trim line, and specified some color preferences. When the next shipment comes in, we'll get hooked up with whatever fits our request. My 1996 Chevy Cavalier behaved quite well over the years, requiring nothing outside of routine maintenance and stuff going south near the end of the life span you could expect for it. Still, with creakiness and assorted minor things that could use fixing and the gasoline supply reminding me all too much of what happened in the '70s, we figured it was time for a change.

The TV altar is here. It looks most excellent. We put the shelf in crooked by accident, so I'll take pictures after it's fixed.

I'm now updating Resonance on Fiction Press, so READ MAH STOREH PLZ.
