I was born one morning when the sun didn’t shine

I was going to write a long blog post about luck, but that was before that email generated this reaction and that phone call meant that I had drive there and deal with that and talk to — just basic Life, yanno? But that means the blog post is not going to happen tonight.

Possibly, it will happen tomorrow, but! Since the other thing that didn’t happen today was getting any work done — don’t stay up waiting for it, is all I’m saying.

I do want to take a moment to squee over a Thunderbird add-on I found yesterday — manually-sort-folders — which also allows one to manually sort mailboxes, which means that my mailboxes are now in the correct order for the first time since the Great Email Revamp which is, I can’t tell you, such a relief.  Having the mailboxes out of order was driving me bugs.  I was completely disoriented and all my mail was in the wrong place and — it was awful.

But now it’s wonderful, and if you are one of the six other people on the face of the earth who find having your mailboxes in the right order of supreme importance — please don’t spent another second feeling off-center and stupid. Avail yourself of this marvelous add-on.

The other thing that happened yesterday was that our chairs arrived, and Steve heroically put them together, so — new desk chair, yay!

Our LL Bean Wicked Good Slippers also came in — no assembly required.  Between new slippers and a new robe, I am ready for winter!

Or, at least, the lounging on the couch drinking hot chocolate part of winter.

And that?

Is all I’ve got.  Tomorrow — pay attention, Tomorrow!

No. Interruptions.

Ye flipping ghods, I have a book to write.

  1. I don’t get as much email as I used to get, thanks to the emergence of social media thingies. Since I’m falling behind the curve, though — all the cool kids, I’m told, now use tumblr to keep in touch with their readers, though, come to think of it, that was months ago, so they’re probably using something else now — Since I’m falling behind the curve, the email mail pick up.

    But I do have an address for reader mail, and another for business, and another for ordering in — another dinosaur artifact, from before we had Labels.
