Do the Whoopity Doo
Did you hear the sound of the cha-cha being danced in Arizona today?
MC's ex signed the divorce papers and they've now been filed with the court as of this afternoon. (They came in the mail today.) His divorce isn't a done deal yet, obviously, but this was a big hurdle and it's now been crossed.
MC is understandably ecstatic. He was so afraid this woman wouldn't sign and we'd have to jump through hoops to get things done, but sometimes the universe smiles on you. He was joking tonight that in another couple of months he'll be a free man - for about two days. Rosie and I were teasing that if he and Zeb have a bachelor party, we get one with male strippers.
I was kidding about the strippers. Rosie insisted she's not. I'm not hedging any bets there.
Work was... well, work. I just sort of tromp through the day, do whatever I can do, and look forward to the weekends.
The pain-in-the-ass web client was whining via email that his site was missing its banner today. His spec site IS missing the banner, but only because he's been such an ass I've had to remake it from scratch for the fiftieth time and I haven't had time to upload the latest version. Yeesh. I'll be glad when we can turn this darned thing over to them for good. We're setting it up so that as much as humanly possible, it's going to be up to them to maintain. There's not enough money in the world to make me want to take on THAT maintenance job, not with this client.
In the meanwhile, we're on a celebratory kick for the night. I'm thinking seriously of investing in a bottle of bubbly for the occasion, though I suppose I should wait on that until it's fait accompli.
Now if Firefox would just decide to cooperate. Ever since I updated to the new version I've had grief. It freezes entirely, then poof! it's gone and won't come back up without a reboot. Given that I hate IE, I'm not overly thrilled with the 'net tonight.
I do, however, find it supremely funny that IE 7 is created in the image of Firefox.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
