Tired this morning, and what a hook that line is to bring you into reading here eh? Still, that's the way it is, after working until 21:20 yesterday evening. Nearly a 14 hour shift. Good news, all with my current service, so a 'comfort zone' of sorts. Other good news, it will be five and three-quarters hours of overtime. Bad news, there's no rest today because it is a Weekend Night Shift day. Oh Well, gainful employment is gainful and so why am I moaning?

Two (not so) Mysterious Packages arrived yesterday, as previously mentioned. I've eyeballed the outsides of the packages and there is no damage visible. One is about 1.3 metres (4 feet) long by 30 cm square. The other is about 60 x 60 x 60 cm (2 ft/side). Both are lighter, at least to us, than the Point Of Origin implied in their description, though their desire to reclaim their space is pertinent. Objects inside will be a bit smaller than the exteriors, but not much. I will open said boxes after feeding teh Ranch this morning. Tomorrow will be a good day to start getting used to the contents, as the weather forecast is for rain, and potentially severe thunderstorms. Therefor, Houdini will be happy if we spend some time together in Studio 318.

A Clue For You, if you are playing the Guess What MadShutterbug Is Being Mysterious About. Looking at the B&H web site for a necessary accessory which I know is not in either box.

Oh, and ETA: First mobile bill after the upgrade to two (2) Smart Phones with data plans for both, including upgrade fees (which I must check into, as I am fairly certain I should be getting the upgrade 'free' but not positive): $154. This is not extreme, yet, as I say it includes some 'one time' fees. It also includes some 'data expenses' from the prior plan with NotSoSmart Phone, primarily some text messages since texting wasn't included on the old plan. We did not exceed either data use nor text use on the new plan for the better portion of a month.

So, wait and see what the next bill looks like. Should be at least 1/3 less than this.

I bet you got the stinkeye from Houdini for going to Hospital on a Boss Stays Home day!

Future tense: well get the stinkeye. Night shift is tonight, not today. All the Day shifts are taken, rather permanently.

Heh, we probably both failed to take into account that the sender is a desk monkey with fibromyalgia, therefore her weight estimates are often WAY OFF. I haven't lifted 30lbs of dog food since September when Daniel moved in, either.

BUT the one is still big compared to this room, which is roughly 9' x 11'!

Oh yes, all things are relative. *G* BTW, I intend to Take Your Name In Vane, shortly.
