Why am i not asleep?

Computer is sucking the time right out of me.

Okay, so. Nutshell:
Major stuff at work, two bugs I submitted which had been puzzling engineering were both verified. One was a hardware timing issue, the other was something about the order in which I had done my tests as opposed to how Engineering had done their initial tests. Boss was very happy about that.

Lunch was at China Stix, beef chow fun was superb. As I was getting out of my car I noticed a sign for a nail parlor, and my nails were 4 days overdue to be re-armored. The shopping center is a ghost town, all the small businesses need more customers, so I went into the empty place and the nice lady did an excellent job, and we had a nice chat during.

Rehearsals - I made the mistake of asking the GPS to find me an alternate route without using 101, but it kept pointing me back to 101. We stumbled though Act II, which is much much shorter than Act I. I'm only in the first two numbers and the last one. Lots of waiting in between, but not as much as it could have been because the ingenue was absent. We still had lots of time, so the music director beat us up a lot. A nice guy, but he doesn't teach the parts. This show's chorus music is too non-standard for that to work, and we will not sound like the score when we're onstage. Tomorrow I'm excused so I can go to band rehearsal. 

Homebound, I played a hunch and took Oakland Road back. Friday I'll use that route. It's many miles longer, but 45mph most of the way, when 101 is crawling at 15-20. After Friday we're in the theater in Saratoga, so I'm screwed.

Plans for tomorrow:
YOTB rehearsal
