week excuse

Last night, I worked up a bunch of changes to the script for our guild's MacBeth gig at Golden Gate Ren Faire, and sent it back to My Wife, so she could assign parts and reformat the scenes to work around the next bunch of people who are no-shows. Went to bed while she was working on it. Woke up about 1.5 hours later to find a VERY unhappy Wife stressed out and unable to sleep. She had opened the attachment I had sent, made all the changes, saved the file, then went back to work on it again and could only find the version from a month ago. So she re-opened the attachment, made the changes again, and saved the file; same thing.

After about an hour of searching, found the file in the FireFox temp files directory; when you work directly on the attachment instead of downloading it first, the working copy only exists in the cache directory, and not out where normal people can find it.

So, started the week on a 12:30 AM Win. Going to face Monday's staff meeting, lunch meeting, trainer session, and Eagle Board on four hours of sleep. Worth it.

I had to learn that the hard way (which really wasn't that hard for me) on the job.

So Sleepy John has a sleepy wife? Couples do start to resemble each other.

Mayhaps we should refer to her as Sleepy Jane?

She prefers "Your Majesty", actually ;)

That actually earned a real life snerk from me.

Have fun at the Eagle board! When I did mine, the council had changed the format and required a representative selected by the the main office be present for the board. This caused a problem because the rep was almost an hour late, and there were multiple boards scheduled. Does your council do that, too?

No, thank Heaven. Three Scouters of good standing to act as the board, the Scout, a leader from his troop to serve as advocate, and the board coordinator to set things up and get the forms back to the Council. That's plenty.

What wonderful days those must have been. Are your scouts required to take an Eaglets course? (Was another waste of time for me...)

I never heard of an "eaglets" course. We have brand-new Life Scouts go to a 'Life to Eagle' seminar, which explains the process of doing the Eagle Project, but nothing beyond that.

Our troop does a walk-through BoR for each candidate before they go for the real thing, so that we can review and correct their report binder and give them a taste of what to expect. Does a lot of good for their nerves, if nothing else!
