It should go without saying that I'm taking a break from picross today (but as the title of this entry says, in my SNES ROMs folder alone, there are still eleven games to go through), or maybe even until I'm off in Toronto, if I can find other things to do. One small project I could work on (of a different nature) is making up KMPlayer-style icons for all image filetypes. I've been meaning to for a couple weeks now, and have several suitable base files to choose from on my desktop, but a certain... something (try to guess) has been taking pretty much all of my time. Maybe I should start working on backups now. I don't foresee downloading any new music or games to put on my PSP within the next five days, so if I get PSP memory stick backups out of the way, and copy the contents of my previous general backups drive to the new one, the two most time-consuming things will be dealt with, and it hopefully won't take as long to go through everything else after work on Wednesday. Michele sent me an email to respond to the note I left on Thursday yesterday, seemingly obliviously asking me to come in Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next week, so I went right downstairs for the phone, preferring that to composing a sarcastic reply, and called her to clear that up. I'll still be going in on Wednesday afternoon, but explained that I'll be busy on Tuesday, and won't be here on Thursday. If anything, that'll just make for a slightly longer day. I'm really not sure how I feel about the thought of being in Toronto in less than a week though. As a matter of fact, at this time next week, the furmeet will be well underway, and I'm more or less looking forward to that, but it feels like there have been too many other changes. I've certainly talked to Dan about quite a few personal things since I was there in August, and there's no way of knowing what would happen if he were to bring one of those up in a direct conversation, but then there's also this whole thing with Xion. Maybe the problem is just on my end, but I've seen him online twice, if not three times since August. I didn't send him any emails to ask "where are you?" or such, because I didn't have anything to talk about, but back on Thursday did ask that he get that $10 to me, in cash, or by Paypal, if he wasn't able to get cash, but a couple days on now, and I still haven't received a response, which makes me wonder. On one hand, things have changed, which is nice in a way. It means I won't be going back to the same place I went to before, so things will be newer and more interesting as such, but if things have changed, there's also no way of predicting how, and thus no way of knowing what to expect. What's more, I'd had enough of trying to tell myself that it didn't matter this morning, and sent Dan a message in Instantbird to say that I didn't appreciate him taking all the credit for cleaning up after the furmeet back in August, but he hasn't responded, so I wonder what he might say.
Those things aside though, I would like some time to myself before ~6, so I think this will be done here. I thought we were going out for Mom's birthday yesterday, but apparently that's today, and we'll be having the desserts I made tomorrow. Sounds good enough to me, but I still need to think about remaining alert at work tonight. Apart from being busy before 11, yesterday went well, so I'm hoping for more of the same tonight, and this will also be my last proper chance to ask Mary a couple questions I wanted to get to back on Wednesday. I suppose we'll see if I remember, but yes... That's enough for today~
