i began working as soon as i got home after fixing myself some eggs and sausages for lunch. this project was going to be done in director, which i haven't touched since the end of the summer. it took some adjustments, like commenting out code with the wrong hash marks, or realizing i didn't have to declare variable types, but lingo is my life blood and i quickly got back in the swing of things. the subject matter was pretty interesting, about chinese forced labor camps, and i even got to watch a compelling video. since their testing machine was going back to the museum tonight, i had to build an alpha version of the interactive by this afternoon and have it installed on that machine. i finally uploaded a version before 3:00 after testing it on my PC and fixing a few bugs. i told the client it'd take me 3 full days to have a finished product, provided they can get me all the graphics by the end of the week.
no word from client E (or the client's client), although i did send an e-mail this morning before i left for my meeting. it kind of worries me a little bit, since there was such a flurry of e-mails yesterday, to suddenly have none. i should take advantage of this temporary lull and put some more polish on the client N interactive.
my warman's national parks quarters collection folder arrived today. it's bigger than i thought and seems a little cheap. the holes aren't very well made and almost impossible to push in a quarter. it took me 15 minutes to finally squeeze in 3 coins. i'm still missing yellowstone and mount hood.
today's temperature got as high as 40°F but i didn't see any melting as things stayed dry. i did go outside with the ice breaker and chipped away at the frozen wall lining the sidewalk, just to make more room for the trash/recycle bins.
victor returned home relatively early today, around 5:00. he went straight to his room and slept for a few hours. later, while i ate some leftover lasagna for dinner, we watched some mexican soccer then an NBA game between the spurs and the thunders.
