Tired

Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:12 pm)

I just can't keep my eyes open at my desk today. For lunch, CV (our accountant) ordered pizza, I suppose that didn't help. I've been working on some projects around the office, but keep getting interrupted by different things. Yesterday, it was the death of Gandalf the Gray and TW's computer going kooky. Today our T1 data line went down for the first time since I can ever remember. By the time I'd power-cycled the router, restarted my network and routing services on my Linux desktop and got the phone company on the line, it came back up on its own. I wish they wouldn't do daytime maintenance, or at the very least warn me when they are going to do it so I don't get the "Did you know the Internet is down?" questions.

Romantic Dinner
Posted in General
First watch, 8 bells (12:21 am)

Well L went all out tonight, and made a wonderful dinner for us. We went to the "other" house, and she had made pot roast. Before we got there, we rented a movie (Uptown Girls, it really wasn't too bad). There was a fire going in the wood stove, and candles on the table. We had a nice dinner, then sat down to watch the movie. After the movie, we had dessert (mmmm, chocolate pudding, banana, and whipped cream sundaes). Then she continued to read the second Harry Potter book to me. It was about 11pm when we called it a night, headed back to the inn. It was a perfect date, and I can still faintly smell her perfume, *sigh*.
