Connected Again

I finally got a permanent internet connection at work, and then yesterday my own real email account. I have been so busy here. We put out three press releases yesterday; I was at work until 7 pm the other night, working on an announcement. But it's all worth it; an investor called last week, and asked who we have writing for us now, because our recent press releases were the best-written and most lucid the company has ever put out!

Shannon H's birthday was yesterday; I got her a book, some sparkly cosmetic goodies, and a CD of the best of the Public Radio show, "This American Life." I can't wait to listen to it, (I mean, until she listens to it) because it's really funny and clever. To celebrate, the gang went out to the Slaughter Leftwich winery, which overlooks Lake Travis, and we had a sort of picnic, with wine, cheese, olives, and other goodies.

Tonight will be quieter, I hope. I bought a cool modern lamp on sale this past weekend, but still haven't had time to take it out of the box and set it up. I want it to be a reward for sweeping and dusting the living room. On verra.
