Finally, an update...
So the Week From Hell came, and went.

Apart from the excruciating hours, and the consultant who would obviously have Rather Been Somewhere Else, it was actually pretty fun -- and utterly mind blowing.

Wow.  I haven't absorbed that much raw data in a single week, since college -- and frankly, not even then.

Brain overload!  Core meltdown imminent!  Danger, Will Robinson!

So I pretty much slept most of Saturday, created another newsletter Sunday, and took today off since it was my birthday.

My birthday.  Yeah.  Forevermore known, to us, as The Anniversary Of Our Best Friend's Funeral.

Angela wasn't feeling good, and I still had a newsletter to finish, send off to Kinko's, pick up, and print and stuff envelopes for.  So, not a whole lot on the "party" front.  Though Angela and I *DID* get in about an hour of playing our PS3 game, Drake's Fortune.  That was fun.

...And just now, my effing nose piece from my effing glasses decided to break off, and vanish somewhere in the vicinity of the floor.  So now I'm stuck with my reading glasses, until I get that fixed tomorrow.

Damn, I feel old now.  :(

[BTW, thanks James.  :)  My mother tried to do the same, only she can't seem to work The Amazon anymore.  Just as well, I don't want her spending money on me anyway.]

So tomorrow, I get my glasses repaired, and get going with The Great Appworx Project.  Now that the brain dump has started to digest, I'm feeling inspired... :)

Hey, happy birthday! [belated] Hope you get a better chance to celebrate it a bit more entertainingly now that Urgent Busy Stuff appears to have let up for the moment. :)

Happy birthday, I suppose. Your dead friend wouldn't want you to mope, I'm guessin'.

I may be projecting a bit. Today is the third anniversary of my father's death, and I suspect every year will involve my unsuccessful search for the Hallmark card that splits the difference between "Happy Merry Jolly Blissful Holidays" and "Sorry Dad's Still Dead". If I find an additional card that applies to your situation (or, you know, a monkey's paw), I'll send it along :/

Happy Birthday my friend! Perhaps if Angela is feeling up to it we can celebrate belatedly after the meeting this Saturday (unless you guys want to do some "alone" celbrating - nudge, nudge, wink wink!
BTW... if you ever need help stuffing envelopes or anything for the newsletter, please let me know. As you know I am only a couple of houses away! LOL
