Scented

For hours, the night was scented with skunk. It lingers even now. I suspect that this persistence is the result not of some poor raccoon or stray kitty being sprayed, but some poor skunk being flattened by a passing car- probably that of one of the paper boys, almost the only drivers out that time of night.

Other than that, it was another uneventful night. I spent much of it poking about on teh Internets, looking for stuff I failed to find. I did, however, receive a it of interesting information which has provided me with an on-line source for black-and-white copes of Sanborn Insurance maps of California cities. I've been looking for such a thing for ages. Unfortunately, they are available for download only in .pdf files. I suppose I'll now have to go looking for a freeware program that converts .pdf's to something easier to deal with. Stupid computers.

Exhausted. Sleep. Dentist and GIANT NEEDLES again Wednesday.
