The best part is that he’s learning

So I’m starting to enjoy fiddling with Scrivener.

I spent a chunk of last night sleepily going through the (rather impressively detailed) tutorial that they include with the program, and got through about half of it.  It does an impressive job of using the program to teach the end-user how to run itself, and by the time I was halfway through the thing I was fully in the okay it’s time to start writing now and figure the rest out later stage of working.  And, well, as you can see I’m actually accomplishing things.  Mostly.  Sorta.

So far I’ve been on summer vacation for eight hours and nineteen minutes if I start the count from when I got up this morning.  During that time I’ve received fifteen emails and four phone calls– one from my assistant principal, and her summer vacation started a week ago.  Each and every one was about stuff that I really shouldn’t have been needed for.  But whatever, at least no one has asked me to come back in.  Yet.

It’s cloudy outside.  It’s been cloudy outside for a week or two now, and that telescope that I acquired at the cost of high personal drama hasn’t been outside the damn house yet.  Tonight will be the peak of the Jupiter-Venus conjunction, and if I can’t see it at least with naked eye because of the clouds I’m going to be pissed.  It cannot possibly stay cloudy all summer long, but I have a feeling that it’s going to try.  The forecast is showing a clear window between 9:00 and 10:00.  That ought to be enough, as sunset’s at 9:23, but keep your fingers crossed for me.  I’ll take pictures if I’m able to get set up at all.
