Journal Journal: If Ray Charles played dice...

he'd better avoid that rotating crap game hosted by Einstein, God, Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and the Devil. Definitely a bad time to enter...Sinatra is up by at least 10Gs. God's loan shark is calling him in and soon he'll have to put his bling Ark into hock.

Compiling OOo yet again. It's still valentine's day, there's a girl sleeping in my guest room, and I'm here compiling OOo listening to Korngold opera.

Not very cool, esp. when one is trying to hit a deadline!
