Well, he’s really not a slacker, but his t-shirt is. This is another one taken at Hopewell Furnace last year. That was a pretty good day for photography, if I do say so myself. There were lots of interesting places and I guess I was feeling creative that day. I need to keep my camera a little bit handier – I frequently see things that I think would make a good picture, but don’t often get to take advantage of those moments. The trouble is that we’re not technically allowed to bring cameras into the office (although so many people have cameraphones these days that it’s effectively impossible to keep them out), and I don’t want to leave it in the car to freeze and/or burn. So, no photos unless I specifically go out to take them. Sigh.

I have to go pick up Mark from his Barbership practice. Back in a little bit.

I’m back. Actually, I never left. Just as I was getting ready to go downstairs, Shannon called and told me she was on the way home and would be happy to go pick Mark up. So I stayed home.

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re spending the holiday quietly at home, except for Shannon, who went to visit somebody in the Relief Society, and Mark, who went to Barbershop practice. No, he’s not learning how to cut hair – he’s learning to sing a capella, as in Barbershop Quartet. Although there are about a hundred of them. I guess that’s just 25 quartets, if you care to look at it that way. Or one hundred-tet.

Anyway, we’re spending the holiday quietly at home. I presume (hope, actually) that Shannon made me my traditional cherry cheesecake. Presumably, we’ll have it after she and Mark get home.

It was a pretty busy day at work today – much busier than I’m used to these days. I spent essentially the entire day in telecons, which may not sound exhausting, but it was. The good news is that we got a lot of work accomplished for Astra 1KR. The less good news is that I didn’t get any work done on my JCSAT-11 ICD, which I have to review with my ILS friends on Monday. Well, there’s always tomorrow. Besides, 1KR is my absolutely top priority right now. If I don’t find the time to work on J-11 tomorrow, though, I’m in real danger of needing to work a little bit of overtime to catch up, and that would be a problem!

Shannon’s not feeling well right now – a cold, she suspects. She has my pity.

Somebody’s been looking at my Flickr photos! I wonder who. I wonder why. Is it one of my readers? Is it a perfect stranger? Is it an imperfect stranger? I certainly hope not. I guess I should have put a link back to the blog there – maybe I’d actually get a reader who I don’t already know! Nah . . . that’ll never happen.

They’re back from Barbershop! I’m off to eat cheesecake. Bye.
