When does my vacation start, again?

Today: a fight with mysql. mysql won. Note to the wise: upgrade your ISAM tables before telling debian to install mysql 5. In my case, it would have been nice if I'd had a clue that some of my users had tables in that format, that support for the format was going away, and that once I'd upgraded and partially migrated the databases forward it would be utter hell rolling back to an earlier version.

I think I might have lost a lot of user data. This is a sin. I feel frustrated and guilty.

Otherwise... lots of beta-reading. No writing. No one has yelled at me about their ficathon assignments! This makes me happy. I might have done it right. I forgot to write a fic rec yesterday, for the first time in over a year of doing it. The iCal task is staring at me.

Dammit. Am all jangly and not in a mood to write. The work ethic drives me onward, however. What I want to do is make a margarita and get into the bathtub with a huge mound of bubbles. If only I could take the Macbook with. Can somebody invent the waterproof Macintosh already?

I do have a large black cat (formerly known as The Kitten) asleep on my foot. That's something.
