~ yeah, so I decided I didn't much like this picture.
but it's the one, so it's the one...
~ just on my way into the "goodlife fitness" gym... :D (my current "happy place")

Today was - kind of "as expected" - totally beautiful outside.
So, as expected, I spent it within the unhappy confines of government cubical walls.

~ physio, so easy stipp'en.
~ dark trousers, black tee and a sweater. (did I mention it was frick'en cold outside!)
~ physio, work, gym, work, quick perimeter groceries, and home. :)
~ had a quick meeting with my galactic core boss (boss-man, not boss-man-big, but just boss-man) who has just started a gig... at my clients site. :)

Text segments used in those little "prove to me you are a human" things where you type in the letters displayed all fuzzy and weird...

Hundreds of millions of "captchas" are typed in on computers around the world, every day.
That's an awesome "decipher" capacity just waiting to be tapped...
and it is... being tapped.
i.e. the captcha's used on criags list... are fed from this library project.
Cool beans.

Life is complicated.
Your tears shouldn't be.

~ see ya soon. :D
