the now (dinner? -- 8:30, Porter Excahnge)...

Today, it's been housework, laundry, tidying, vacuuming, and assorted small projects. I'd like to go out to dinner, and if you ping me before 8pm you could join me... I am going to dinner (most likely sushi) at Porter Exchange, and if you're at the benches outside Bluefin at 8:30, you can join...

Yesterday, it was moderately late rising, a celebratory brunch for concrete's birthday and green card anniversary, a few hours of detritus-wrestling and muck-raking in the Circlet Press portion ceciliatan's basement, and a few hours celebrating another friend's 50th birthday in Salem.

The rest of last week is largely a blur, tracking back to Tuesday, when paychecks were distributed -- and though long-overdue reviews have not yet happened, equally long-overdue raises were found therein. For me, the raise was 18%, 4.5 years after my last. Viewed in isolation, this is a stellar raise; with the perspective of the time since the last, it's not so stellar, but still better than cost-of-living, and I'm not nearly so disenchanted as I was last month at this time. The best part of that? It covers my new car payment, and then some.
