Well, today's shaping up to suck royally.

Got a call from opposing counsel on an emergent matter. This type of matter is generally heard on the same day the judge gets around to looking at it. The attorney said: the hearing in the XYZ matter is set for 3:30 in Judge Q's courtroom. He did NOT say "tomorrow" or "Friday" or any other useful words like that. So, I'm now in trouble because I didn't ask that, since every other time we've ever gotten this kind of call it's been same-day.

My watch broke. Again. The plastic that holds the pin that attaches the watch to the band cracked. Again. I know this is what I get for only wearing $10 sports watches from Target, but I *like* sports watches. I wish I could figure out what causes this particular problem, though.

I was actually in a good mood this morning when I left the house, and until about 10:30 I was even being fairly productive. My motivation has now stalled out.

Have you considered buying more expensive sports watches? If nothing else, they'll have warranties to cover these sorts of problems.

Yeah, I'd pretty much come to that conclusion.

Of course, I'll still have to find one I like.

Check outdoor stores (try online to start) like Altrec and Popular. They're for the super-durable camping sports watches and would probably have a decent size variety.

You can take the middle road, work up to the fancier sports watches... TIMEX.

EMS = store Oidhche acquired his new watch at, leave it to Oid to find a watch that comes with a USB connector

Route 202 and Route 28 Intersection, on the right hand side as you head south, you pass it all the time to go to PA.
