Saturday morning feh

Ever seem to have one of those days where you just can't quite get anything done? I seem to be having one of those weeks. Even minor things seem to get tripped up.

What I need to do, also, is figure out which of my gaming projects I want to focus on, and freakin' finish it. Too many pots on the stove, or whatever that metaphor is. Regardless, I must reconcile my ambition with actually getting things completed. If there's a pill for this, let me know.

It's strange that I've tried to call my parents like three times this week, and the phone's been busy all three times. I'm not worried or anything, just, weird.

In other news, no Z. tomorrow. She's with her mom in NYC. I might give her a call this afternoon, see how they're doing. But man, it's gonna totally throw off my schedule.

And while I'm rambling: Columbia, you're on notice. You're just not public-transportation friendly, at all. Like, worse than Northern Virginia, and that's saying a lot.

"Intelligence reports from this administration can't be taken at face value. President Bush has built up a prodigious track record of selectively disclosing intelligence findings that serve his political agenda. And some of the most important of those findings, of course, turned out to be completely false. The latest disclosure from the White House's intelligence apparatus - that Syria secretly built a nuclear reactor with North Korean help - is in many ways a blockbuster. But at the same time, its highly suspicious timing raises doubts about the motivation behind its announcement."
