Brush Envy

Mai, Bob's wife, came to our house today to use my Chinese calligraphy setup to write some characters, and even though she hates doing calligraphy, she's far better at it than I am. I guess a childhood of hating sitting down with a brush is still far more practice than an adult dabbling.

Work Day

Mostly I'm scrambling to get things done, racking up the extra hours and actually doing stuff. So Boss Bill'll get the stuff done that he needs done, but I'll be taking time of later. I guess with all the vacation that the 'cost savings' plant shutdowns is burning in my normal vacation account, it's good to be able to take days off otherwise.

It's getting done is the fascinating thing.
