I see ink of green

I see ink of green, some results too
I get some data, for me and you
And I think to myself...

I finished coating the channel, and had a couple of hours until Shabbat. Not enough time to coat the other one, but enough time to teach Lucy and Joeska how to use LaTeX. I got back to Geoff and Michelle's place, ate, watched TV and relaxed and tried very hard not to think about work. A good night's sleep later and I felt human again.

Saturday, I relaxed, watched some cricket and finally started on my teach-yourself-Welsh book. I'm gonna master unit one - greetings - before I go. In the afternoon there was a serious, hardcore thunderstorm overhead and it bucketed down about 15mm or rain in five minutes. Geoff, Michelle and Aerlyn had to go out, so I was looking after a dog which went nuts everytime it heard thunder. I turned the TV volume up to try to distract it. The power went out. It went ballistic. I was glad I shut down my computer when I heard the storm approach...

I was under instructions to tie it up outside if it started going mad. I tried to put its lead on, it tried to bite me. I wasn't impressed. I won in the end. Reason number 358 why I don't want pets and dogs are outside animals.

Saturday night we went to Aerlyn's work for dinner because it was the last night before it closed down. It was a good meal and we had a good time, although I'm not a fan of people smoking indoors at all, ever.

We got back and I started working on a presentation I'd foolishly agreed to give on Monday. I was tired so I tried to sleep. Didn't work. I did almost everything I could think of. Nothing worked. I eventually got to sleep at about 1:30 after about 3 hours of trying. I think the stress had finally got to me - I couldn't shut my mind off.

Today, I woke up at 6:30 and dozed for an hour or so. After showering, dressing and breakfasting, I made my way to uni. It's been a good, productive day. I think I have got all the data I'll need and I've crossed some other stuff off my to-do list. I'm just transferring the data now, and I will try to analyse it tonight (when I get back to Geoff and Michelle's place)

I've had some good ideas about how I'm going to analyse the data.

With a bit of luck I'll be done by the end of the week and home in time for Chanukkah.

The end is in sight.

And I think to myself, "What a wonderful world."
