One of Critter's teachers is Lana. But her last name doesn't start with L, so that's okay.
Seen on the white board in Chemistry: "Gum must always be on waxpaper not balance pan." It seems the current unit is "Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bed post overnight?" I can only assume that the exercise assumes that flavor has mass, since a balance scale is involved. ;)
I was caught up to today in the paper. I'd even started reading today's paper, but not the comics. I brought it to work, when I thought I'd be there for dinner. And left it behind when I drove to TLS, cause duh, I wouldn't have a chance to read during parent's night. My paper wasn't on the break room table when I left tonight. I wasn't paying attention to see if Details took it home, or the cleaning lady tossed it. Sigh.
Okay, so I work at the east end of downtown Lexington. It added a whole minute, maybe two, to my drive home: I zipped over to the Herald-Leader, and there were still Thursday papers in the boxes outside the building. I paid 50¢ to support my daily comix addiction. ;)
The box turtle came back. While I was packing my not-suitable-for-eating-while-driving dinner, I noticed that Flood was barking away at something, and digging at the back corner of the fence. Critter and I went to investigate, and found the turtle was back. We got Tigger to carry it down to the woods near the creek. He says he found a spot that was a perfect turtle nest. Then I had to go find the Absorbine Junior for the bug bites he got, walking close the creek in just sandals. Oops.
Work tonight. Ugh. See, there's not much coming in, so not much left to index. Details was there tonight, and there was stuff for each of us to do. I worked until 12:15, but only because I got there at 5:30, and left for a 2 hour dinner break. Neither of us is working tomorrow night. Details is a natural pessimist, and I'm a natural optimist. She's planning on calling before making the trek to the office on Monday. I'm planning on going in, unless they call to tell me differently.
There's a funny noise in the kitchen. The return, under the thermostat, is making a rattly air movement noise. Even when there's no air movement from the vents. And, if you stand in the right part of the kitchen, you can hear equipment running under the floor, which is where the air handler is. Only, there shouldn't be any sound, since I turned the thermostat to the "off" of "heat/off/cool" and "fan" of "auto/fan". Which is suppose to shut the whole thing off.
The repair guys are supposed to show up in the morning.
Okay, really should get to bed. Just felt full of random near to share this evening.
