Humph

I can't write anything.

I have tried and failed and tried again. It's just not happening for me today. Chienne had a big adventure yesterday - heading to Friend's then Friend's friend's house. She was very good and rather sweet, but I can't be patient enough to watch the words appear on the screen.

I wrote one abstract on Saturday and have been battling the other one since. It's a tremendously complex dataset - at least I hope it is because it's beyond me to understand it. And just when I had a decent idea, I hit a major technical glitch. I understand the cause, but I can't find the solution. So I'm going to get the files out of UsefulProgram and into DifferentProgram and try to trick UsefulProgram into reading them the way I want instead of the way it thinks is best. Dammit.

Friend arrived a couple of hours ago to avail herself of my water and garden hose to clean her car. She's been out there ever since, doing what, I can't imagine. Spray, wash, rinse, shower to remove sweat. 20 minutes tops. Perhaps she has decided to build a new car... I suppose I could look, but it's all hot out there. I'd rather not.

Instead I shall load up my USB drive (Minie, I think, with her pink ribbon) and try to fool my programs. I'm tired and crampy and am not looking forward to the remainder of this week.

Phooey and such.

Hopefully things will cool down for you later and everything will just "come together". We can only hope!
