10 Minutes, Tops

This is one of those evenings when I've dithered for hours, waiting around for an idea for tonight's entry. Time's up. I do without. Not having anything much to say should suit my purposes rather well, because it shouldn't take me very long to say nothing much!

Yeah, well, when have I ever taken less than an hour to say nothing much? Oh, I manage it occasionally, but not so's you'd notice.

See, I need to finish this quickly because I really need to get to bed. This business of being due at work at 8 AM instead of 9 AM or later is hard on me.

Oh, the job? Getting better. Day Two at FVD, like Day Two at ARR!, was a major improvement. I spent the day actually being productive, working in Excel and learning new stuff as I went along. That's the way I like it: accomplishing something, doing something I'm good at, and learning things at the same time.

Yes, Tuffy seems to be fine too. We haven't heard back from the vet, although come to think ogf it there may be a message on the home phone. I'll check.

Just so this entry isn't entirely devoid of interest, Let me throw in two pictures from the past couple of weeks. I took this first one within a day or two of my jury duty. This big metal sculpture thing in front of the Main Library reminds me of some of the public art that Carly has photographed in the past, except that this one isn't as nice looking. I thought it was red, but when I went to photograph it it was brown, not very attractive at all. Still, it amused me to see a red cherry picker packed nearby.

A week later, as my brief tenure at ARR! was ending, I noticed that the sculpture was red after all. Bright red. Newly painted red. Probably painted using, say, a red cherry picker. The brown was probably some anti-rust primer. This was downtown Tucson's little farewell gift to me as I said goodbye to my daily commute through downtown. And now that I've shared it with you, I'm going to bed!

Oooh I like that very much, do you happen to know the name of the piece or the artist? Glad the new job is going well, it sounds like you are happy, which is good to hear. Please give Tuffy a big hug from me. :) She is the worlds cutest doggy.

Hm! Looks like an artistic interpretation of a child's jungle gym...complete with fort on top and curved slide on the side. I want one of those for the back yard.
