not much else going on today other than the fact that client N has finally decided to send me down to birmingham next week to solve some outstanding issues. they should've sent me more than a month ago, but i thought they'd fixed everything since then, but apparently not. i'm actually kind of looking forward to the trip. with the economy the way it is, pretty much the only way i can do any sort of traveling is on these business trips. i know i'm supposedly done there to work, but i really don't think the fixes will take up all my time. and i love staying in hotels.
my father dropped by briefly with some frozen chinese dumplings. i fell asleep on the couch again. i guess all this running has been making me more tired. nevertheless, i still sleep at my usual time which is 3am.
in the early evening it started to snow a bit. the weather report said it wouldn't be too much, an inch or two, and then transitioning to rain. when i brought the trash out i shoveled the slush from the sidewalk.
