Happy Occurrence

Well, it's that time of year again, the time for sincere, from-the-heart well-wishing. So:

 Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, best wishes for an environmentally conscientious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive,
gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday (unless you are in the southern hemisphere where it is a summer solstice holiday), practiced
within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular
persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

 Also a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but
not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great, (not to imply that
America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color,
age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual preference of the wishee.

 By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration
to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited
by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.

 This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent
holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.)

 This greeting is void where prohibited by law.

 Please check with your physician before accepting this, or any other greetings.

Hi

Hi everyone. It's Wednesday. First break of the day.Can't wait to get home.

My mom called last night while I was talking to Allison, asked me what I wanted for Christmas. This year I actually had an answer for her: bed sheets. The ones I have now I've had since 1999, and they're starting to show the strain. I mean, when you slide your foot down the surface as you're crawling into bed, and your big toe snags on a hole in the sheet, this is a pretty good indicator that new bed sheets might not necessarily be such a bad thing.

I got to work this mornina and Aline, that angel of mercy, offered to fill my water bottle for me. I'm glad they have a water cooler here, because the water out of the fountain tastes ... metallic. Probably because I'm the only one stupid enough to drink out of it because I'm too lazy to trip over stuff finding the water cooler. Did that even begin to make sense? Oh well.

They've still got us using JAWS 7.1 here at work. I'm authorized for 8, but without administrative access there's no way I can install 8. But one of the disadvantages of 7.1 is that sometimes, when you're doing an LJ entry and you want to leave a blank line between paragraphs, you get bumped out of forms mode. For you sightlings who don't understand the lingo of screen readers, don't worry about it, it's really not that important.

Well, gotta text a message to my roommate. He's looking for an address. HAve a wonderful day, everyone. Feel free to e-mail.
