What you did today

The cat has diarhea, got it all stuck around its fur..then wandered the house. So stains on the carpet, the furniture, the windowsills... all attempting to clean it.. and of course the bastich cat won't let you clean it. He's going all fur-n-fang-n-claw. So managed to stick him in the travel box for a moment while some of the cleaning elsewhere gets done..

Although I'm now sporting assorted scratches up my forearms, on my chest, and he managed to slash my throat a tad.
Trying to wash a cat's behind, when the cat is that resistant to running water is not an easy solo job.
But, eh, onwards with the day.
Edit: And to be technically accurate.. none of them are mine.. All three are actually my sister's pets..

So you only drink cask strength?Barbarians!
Actually ... a few distilleries I have visited actually encourage exactly one ice cube in order to soften the alcohol to release some of the notes that are not readily apparent otherwise I'm just sayin' ...
@Guard Dog: Different lines of work, yet parts of it sounds strikingly familiar. High risk interesting projects versus the less glamorous ones that ensures you can pay rent in any foreseeable future. I like the first ones better, my employer the latter
Took 750 pages of photocopies and lamented the fact that wearing a microskirt while riding a bicycle doesn't happen back home.

As for spaces: Tale when I finished my first Graduate Thesis there was a very long, dry conversation not about content, but my choice to use on single space as per updated MLA standards. Old school Profs were not impressed

I learned three things. One, the double space after a period is a holdover from typewriters with monospaced font. It's considered incorrect in modern typing on computers. Two, this forum automatically turns a double space into a single space. But that's because it truncates all amount of spacing to just one space. Three, the double spacing habit is really hard to break.
Hah, yeah it is. I keep doing it though, was drilled into me by mom when she was teaching me to type (and the way to properly space a letter as well). Today has sucked, I can understand why all the guys working here drink so much.

Two spaces is still the rule in a some environments. I'm thinking specifically of court filings in many jurisdictions-- judges have a lot in common Old-school Professors.

To thoroughly change the subject, the personal issue I had mentioned a couple weeks ago in this space is resolved, and not in a particularly happy manner. By the time we got to the follow-up/second opinion last Monday, the little guy's heart had stopped beating. We had a good amount of warning that this was a likely outcome, and we take some solace in that unhappy resolution now is greatly preferable over an unhappy resolution 3 months from now. The associated medical stuff (induced labor, delivery, recovery from such) has also all gone well so far. But, of course, we're still sad about the whole thing. We've had a lot of family around, which has helped. And my admiration for Mrs. E has only increased with how well she has handled all of this (her immediate family too-- those folks rock).

My condolences Enoch
Not much to say that would make a difference. Hope you'll end up with a large family some day

Small comfort, but I'm glad to hear your wife's health wasn't endangered.
