First, apparently my college-aged coworkers here in Bellingham are capable of having a very mature political discussion, despite having a pretty wide variety of views. Yet when I lived in TN, my 40+ year old coworkers were incapable of discussing politics without being racist and/or acting like children, EVEN THOUGH THEY ALL AGREED WITH EACH OTHER.
Secondly, my computer wouldn't boot this morning which terrified me because I have a lot of drawings on it which I haven't copied to my laptop in case of emergencies. That would be a LOT of work down the drain. When I got home from work today it still wouldn't boot at first, but it finally did. So if nothing else at least I have the chance to back everything up before it completely goes south.
