Hospital is... hospital. Work progresses. Have been getting out earlier than pre-go-live with upgraded software, but not every day. Probably doesn't help that after our go-live (which pointed up some weakness in how our IT dept. is distributing access), the IT dept. also did an upgrade. Which didn't exactly fix things. Like, am I surprised?

Did a photo-shoot on Thursday, an interesting and fun session to provide some portraits, head-shots, and other needed portfolio work for someone local. Will be posting a few pieces sometime this week but first need to deliver the CD of the "raw data" to the interested parties. More on that later, probably behind a filter unless cleared otherwise.

One minor mishap that evening, though not sure one of the involved parties considers it minor. One of the two water closets in our big house has always been a bit sluggish, and lately a bit touchy about operating. With consistent attention it works fine, and as of two days previous to the shoot Thursday fit that category. Following the incident itself, we discovered that one of the Four Kittens of the Apocalypse thought it considerate to leave one of their captive frogs in that water closet.

Unfortunately for the frog, it discoprorated sometime during the employment interview with whichever Kitten of the Apocalypse conducted the interview, sank to the bottom, and wound up getting stuck in the trap just out of sight. Unfortunately for the guest, it being a pretty good sized frog meant that it hung up and also stopped much of the solid matter attempting to pass through the trap. This emulation of a dam resulted in a small flood...

The rest of the evening passed without noticable incident.

Yesterday proved to be a day of rest, with a little other round the ranch work and a touch of studio (but only a touch). Today should be a bit more productive, albeit just as slow.

Herself wandered down the road yesterday for a family meeting, which hopefully proved productive. Also means I couldn't answer a couple questions which came up, those questions needing consultation with Herself as she will be the most involved in either point. Will see about answering those today.

Meanwhile, time to go.
