Remind me to never complain about work being slow again. I ended up getting slammed with manuscripts last night, and the other girl who normally comes in is sick so I'm the only one left to do them. And yes, I'm procrastinating right now by posting this. But I've been here for at least 9 hours so far, so I think I deserve a bit of a break. I'm also kind of sad at the moment. I found out when I came in this afternoon that one of my co-workers died suddenly yesterday. Apparently he had either a stroke or a heart attack. I didn't really know him very well, but I saw him every day since his desk is just one row over from mine. It's just strange to think that I'll still be walking past there all the time, but he'll never be coming back.

Back to the grind now. :(

Meh.

Like an idiot I somehow managed to overwrite the Buffy section of my webpage with another file, so I've spent the last few days trying to fix that. I think the site as a whole looks a little bit nicer now, since I figured out how to put more than one table on a page so now the spacing in the different sections doesn't look all wonky. I wish I could understand how cascading style sheets work, though. I tried experimenting with them tonight, and I got it to work once but then I couldn't get it to do anything after that. Guess I'll just have to stick with tables then.

I was kinda disappointed that there was no new episode of The Amazing Race this week, but the recap show was rather fun to watch. I liked seeing some of the footage that didn't make it into the actual episodes. My favorite part, though, was Lena and Kristy putting on their makeup while heading to one of the pit stops and Kristy calling Phil a "Choo-Choo Charlie". I have no idea what that is, but I'm assuming that it means that she thinks he's hot. Which he is. :) I miss Lena and Kristy. And Don and Mary Jean, too. Watching their eliminations last night made me sad all over again. Heck, I even miss Meredith and Maria and Joe and Avi, even though they weren't around for very long. Ah well, at least there are still three teams left that I like. Kris and Jon are so cute, and I love how they take everything in stride, even when they make a mistake. Gus, Hera, Lori, and Bolo have really grown on me too.

I guess the year just couldn't end without giving us a couple of more surprises, hunh? First the tsunami and now Jerry Orbach is dead. That last one especially makes me sad since I've been a big fan of Law & Order and I loved Lenny Briscoe. I also keep thinking about the tsunami and all the damage it did, and I kind of dread logging on to my computer every day only to see that the death toll has gone up yet again. I'm hoping that maybe they're overestimating the deaths by a lot, because I don't see how they could have arrived at a solid reckoning yet. But considering how powerful the earthquake was, the numbers probably are pretty accurate. I don't think I want to know what kind of damage a 9.0 earthquake would do if it had been on land instead of in the ocean.

Oh no...

Very first thing I saw when I opened my browser this morning was the news of Christopher Reeve's death on the homepage. And he was only 52 years old, too... I'm only just starting to wake up enough for it to sink in and now the tears are starting to come. Goodbye, Mr. Reeve. I'll always remember your courage in the face of your disability and how much good you've done in promoting research for it. And you'll always be Superman to me.
