Plus the Internet connection was behaving so badly this evening that I finally called AT&T, and they have set up a visit from the lineman tomorrow morning, which means I need to get some sleep tonight. I wasn't actually expecting them to send someone so soon, and when I approved the appointment window, in my surprise at the unexpected promptness, I totally forgot about the chiropractor. I suppose I could have canceled the telephone guy later (there's no way I'd cancel the chiropractor) when I remembered, but I don't like to do things like that, so I'll just deal with whatever happens.
In the meantime the night is now wasting away as the day did. Time to get it together.
