Life: The cough is a little beter today; I got through the entire work day without resorting to Ricola. Yea, drugs!
The medical transcription test is tomorrow. I have no idea how much I've forgotten; we'll see how that goes. I don't think I was ever the fastest typist there, but I did strive for accuracy.
De Gustibus No Disputandem Est: A conversation between Mark and me:
Me, sniffing: "Dear, the pizza is burning."
Mark: "No, it's not."
Me: "Yes, it is. I can smell it."
Mark: "It's not burning. That's just the cheese melting."
Me: "It's burning. Whenever I bake chocolate chip cookies and they smell this way, they always come out burnt."
Mark: "This is why I never let you cook. Trust me; the pizza's not burning."
Me, shaking my head: "If you say so...."
Mark, later: "Dinner's ready--and the pizza's not burnt."
I go into the kitchen and take a look at the pizza. Sure enough, the bottom of the crust is dark, dark brown/black. I scrape the toppings off into a bowl and throw the crusts away.
Me: "It's burnt, Mark."
Mark: "It is not burnt! It's toasted, the way pizza ought to be."

Texas Politics: I made my first contribution to Kinky Friedman's campaign for Texas governor today. To paraphrase Berke Breathed: "Why not the Kinkiest?"
Seriously, I like what he believes in, and I like the fact that he's still a regular guy; hasn't become part of the political machine yet.
Why Not The Kinkiest?
How the heck do you kern in Paint Shop? I've tried its kerning control, but it seems to have zero effect. This icon would look much better if I could kern it properly.
