salary letter day

It's the annual salary letter day here at work. Not many people are actually here to receive their letters with news of how much of a raise, if any, is coming in the new year.

Fun last night further neglecting housework & hanging out with peteralway. I got to hear his response to my challenge in his "Iron Composer" exercise a while back---you can hear it yourselves here (mp3), apparently, though I don't seem to be able to hear it all with my current configurations, for some reason.

More coffee now, I think, and back to work. Must get a good night's sleep some time soon. I have come to believe in good sleep, and to back up that belief with more consistent vigilance to it than I used to apply. (That reminds me: on Christmas night I passed the 5000-hour mark with CPAP.)
