Screw it. I am playing hookey from my work party. It was raining hard at 6AM and the whole thing sounded unpleasant in the rain. (Which seems to have stopped. Oh well.)
Alternate plans: start a pot of chili, if I have all the ingredients. (I think I do – chili is flexible.) Wind a skein or two of yarn. Erg 10 km. Go to the bookstore. And maybe go to a local party tonight.
