"My own very adequate memory not being good enough for Starfleet, I am pleased to put my voice to this official record of this day:

Everything's under control. End log."

also one of my favorite DS9 quotes:

so many in fact that they have to invent new ways to store them ..microscopically. Otherwise their records would overrun all known
civilization. ..."

Went to CVS once: go to counter. Say i want to buy candles. Say i don't need a bag. Say it's just a few items i can carry in my hands and no need to waste plastic.

Woke up thinking about how I:

1) Took it apart
2) Identified the speaker (ok that wasn't hard thank goodness)
3) removed the speaker
4) reassembled it

and it types fine!

So I got a typewriter and it came with a loud beep that gave the dog panic attacks and anyway...

Deleted over 6,000 emails tonight. Um. I need to stop now and take a shower and do work tomorrow and stuff.
