Beaujolais to frotz!

I guess I have a lot of catching up to do. I'll leave the movies, books and music for a quieter occasion. My last day at my current job will be this Friday. I thought I'd get the chance to laze around and drive slowly in a westerly direction for a week or so but an appointment here has popped up sooner than expected and I can't leave until next Wednesday afternoon at the earliest. (parenthetical GAR - I forgot to bring my favourite .vimrc from zork and the default is annoying) The truck arrives to pick up my stuff early Thursday morning. I've been packing tonight but have to get up very early tomorrow for a special study at work. I can't sleep because of stress and I can't pack sensibly because of fatigue. The plan tomorrow is just to pile all the stuff I can't do without (for three months) in one room and then box up the stupid crap. The moving folk are supposed to pck the rest of the stuff so I'll leave the domestic things for them. I need to burn the backup discs for my main computer tomorrow.

I am looking forward to an almost empty apartment on Thursday evening. Expect the update then. Just to taunt me the library has the special edition of 12 Monkeys and I don't have time to watch it.

Hmmm... the Zork motd web page doesn't update as quickly as it used to. This could be a problem as I tend to save rough versions of these entries and then check them in the browser. Time to start being less lazy (speaking of which, I didn't see the frotz entries in laziness).

Testing, testing!

Is this thing on?

Oh boy! I love California!

So, I've noticed that the turn signals around here code for pretty much no information. I haven't yet seen someone turn on their hazards to show that they're turning, but I haven't seen much of people turning on their hazards period, so it may just be a matter of time.
