Just to demonstrate that my brain has melted, I’m actually thinking about adding a “Plate Watch” box to the site sidebar. On my way back home this afternoon, I found myself situated behind an SUV whose license plate read “ICU PEKN.” I was impressed. It isn’t often you see reverse psychology employed on a license plate.
The business side of life seems to be jumpin’, as they would have said back in the Big Band era. Besides the work for Macromedia, I have one confirmed CSS training contract and three possibles, plus what looks like three conferences between now and Thanksgiving. I’m also hoping to sign in the next week a few more contracts to do standards optimization and strategy work for various companies. All that, plus I’m trying to assemble a business site for myself and create or acquire the materials that are so vital to being on one’s own.
Considered in this context, I suppose the persistent light insomnia is a bit of a blessing in disguise. Still, I’ve no cause to complain. I think I almost had to go out on my own at some point, just to find out if I can hack it. If so, great! If not, then I’ll know that I tried.
At any rate, the heavy work load does make for light journal entries.
