When did they go back in time and light abraham lincoln on fire using flying monkeys? Check the archives! Check them... IN THE FUTURE!

My brother is moving up to georgia to be nearer his kids, and he's been staying with me for the last few days. He's already found an apartment, and I'm helping move his stuff in Sunday, so no big deal there.

Work has been kinda killer this week, with a couple evil deadlines. Hopefully I'll have time to catch up with X or Y or Z next week. I've started writing each thing to do on a post-it note and sticking the note on the edge of my monitor. I toss one out when I've done all the tasks on it, but they're still building up into a thick, yellow monitor mane. Only about two sides are covered so far, though. Mostly it's building up because one out of the four to five tasks can't be done without a good free week, so I should probably take them down and compact those ones onto new post-its. Usually, writing down things to do is a good way to make me not look at whatever I wrote the things to do on, but my monitor notes are actually reminding me of things, so that's cool.

Oh, now I can listen to podcasts portably, since Comcast sent me a free 128mb Creative MuVo mp3 player for no reason. They sent me two postcards with the same offer on them, so I used both confirmation numbers on their online redemption site, but I guess they wised up, since I've only gotten one player so far. It's nearly worthless, since it has so little memory, but it's good for a few hours of podcast delight. Not that I'm using it anywhere I don't already have a computer and headphones, but hey... whatever!
