concession speech on car radio
on the way home last night. I thought it was beautiful. Didn't hear
speech because it hadn't started by the
time I got home, and home is another world
Picked up an artificial Christmas tree - our first - after
deciding that a real tree was too much hassle. I was
pretty shocked at the price tag, though.
This morning a rose bush was lying across the path.
At first I thought the wind had blown it over, but
later when there was a little light I saw that it
was those damn gophers that bit through all
the roots. Don't they have anything better to do?

Anyway, I wrote myself a little script to check
my number of writeups and tell me how many I need to
get to level 5, and how many to level 6. Then I thought
I'd check on the total w/u's needed for the higher levels,
and whoo wee the requirements have jumped! I've gone from
needing 64 writeups to needing 514 writeups.
Not complaining, mind you; glad I kept my old
level. Just that the only level that really means
something to me is six because then you can put up a
picture. Oh well.
