My Life Is A Mastercard Commercial

Heinous work deadline upgrading webpages: met, finally, and fairly cleanly, aside from a few panicky moments that required figuring out the difference between relative and absolute links in jsp server-side includes on the fly (but I did it!).

Traffic court: 4 points, $100 fine + court costs ($124), and an admonishment from the judge to redouble my efforts to be a safe and courteous driver.

Star Wars RPG MacGuyvering moment: Let's see, I have a busted seeker droid, a recovered demolitions charge, and a $20 commlink. What can I make out of that? Oh, look! It's an airborne homing landmine! With friend-or-foe capability!

Bonus SW RPG MGM: engulfing one of the Jedi in a cloud of burnt personal deodorant spray to distract the keen-scented predator that was trying to eat his head. It made the Jedi mad, too, which I promptly decided had been part of the plan all along.

Weather: freaking COLD.

Sweeties who will (with some cajoling) warm me up in bed: priceless.
