Today's round-up

I just got finished watching the Ramones blow up Rock n Rock High School quite a contrast to Morgan Freeman in Lean on Me.

I'm in the kitchen, baking Almond Roca drop cookies. I just finished washing the hand-wash, so I have time to update my journal during the last two sheets.

After chess club, I had updates to send J. for the tournament tomorrow, so I got those together and then went upstairs to fax them. Gave her the call to let her know I was faxing, and she took the info over the phone, instead. Oh well, at least I got a round trip on the stairs to my credit. ;)

I spent the rest of the evening vegging under my laptop, reading email and live journal, posting to live journal, ICQing with Sydb, and then talking to Wolf, when ICQ crashed my laptop. Or, to be more accurately failed inelegantly to deal with memory creep. It's probably another program that's grabbing memory and not properly releasing it, but ICQ managed to freeze up the computer when it happened.

I spent the early part of the day cleaning the kitchen (just dealing with dishes this time, and only 1 day's worth); watching Buffy with Knight; getting a sign-out sheet ready and printed for chess club; and going to chess club. There were about 40 kids there this afternoon. I got there in time, and then spent the first half hour going over things with Coach. The next half hour checking in students and the rest of the time fielding checks and cheching out kids. It's always a zoo right about 5, when most of the parents show up.

Which leaves the list at:
  1. Clean the kitchen while the boys eat breakfast. Finished after they left, as it turns out.
  2. Watch Buffy with Knight.
    • Make certificates for ChessEnded up just writing up a tournament report on an info. page for the kids.
    • Print out the roster for chess club tomorrow.
    • ooh, ooh, add the active field as a date field and mark the latest date kids have been to chess club, from the check-in sheets that I have.The lists weren't dated; decided to add an inactive field, instead.
  3. Fold laundry
  4. Get to Chess Club early, with the equipment bag
  5. Email and fax the updates to J. after chess club
  6. sweet-talk Flar into making dinner
  7. Make cookies!

I didn't get to the laundry, but I made cookies, and I'm returning the kitchen to clean.

Gotta make print the team roster for scorekeeping, print a few views of the chess db as resource sheets, and write out things to remember in the morning, and then I can go to sleep.
