secrets of our success

Frustrating day. Our Internet connection was supposed to go in today (right now we're on a temporary connection), but the guys running the cable down our hallway didn't bring the right size of drill bit so couldn't drill the hole for the cable to go through. They had spent TWO HOURS running the cable, and had to pull it all out to try it again tomorrow. Sigh. Meanwhile, I'm having problems with my e-mail; Interlog seems to be floundering quite a bit since being bought by PSInet. Allison recently received an e-mail I sent her MONTHS ago.

As I result of today's mess, I had to opt out of UT practice. And here I am still at the office at 10 pm...Jeff's here, too. He's putting together his office while I'm finishing an article I promised for a book coming out soon (THE SECRETS OF OUR SUCCESS by M.J. Rose and Angela Adair-Hoy); it was actually due last week, but the authors of the book kindly granted me a week extension because of my move :-). Jeff and I ordered in pizza from a place Kyle (the nice Camp Creations guy across the hall) recommended...yum!

Signed up with the health club about a five-minute walk away. It's about a tenth of the size of my old health club but quite a bit cheaper. Very casually membership card, no terms of agreement, two working showers. :-) I've been slacking off and get wait to get back into a regular workout schedule again.

Hey, Dave Hibbard linked to my trip report from his testimonials page on the Nahanni Wilderness Adventures website! :-)
