I was out at lunchtime, and the outdoors looks too good to be true. The trees and flowers are in bloom, the sun is shining brightly in the blue sky, and flags are rippling in the breeze.

In practice, of course, it is a little too good to be true. The trees and flowers are also in pollen, so there's a light green film coating everything. Also, it's just humid and warm enough to be slightly muggy, while not warm enough to justify air conditioning.

Indoors, it's been a bit hectic. I was out sick yesterday, so I've been playing catch-up all day. We had to file papers yesterday that I had prepared, and today was one of the tax appeal deadlines. It's good to be busy with stuff I understand and can actually get out the door, though.

Meanwhile, while at home yesterday, I geeked out with my Magic card inventory. I finally finished printing my have/want lists and summarizing them, which is the same project that killed my old printer some months back. It looks like I may need to find a new inventory program, because they seem to have stopped producing set updates for the one I've been using for years. Entering new sets by hand for the old program would be a lot of work. On the other hand, re-entering my existing inventory would also be a lot of work, and this program doesn't seem to export to anything but Excel - good for working with, not so good for changing programs.

I'm well aware that it’s a strange hobby for me; if it were TV advertising, I'd be muttering "so not the target demographic" under my breath. I've never claimed to be an ordinary woman, though.
