Another domestic day, with the apartmentmates out for the weekend for a retreat. When they're gone, I get down and...clean. I suppose my kitchen duties are still technically not finished since I have a floor to mop down and a bunch of junk to sort through and throw away. I should call them together for an organization meeting, I don't think we understand each other's kitchen habits too well.
My Abraham Lincoln biography arrived, I've been reading in my spare time. He was kind of arrogant before the presidency, acccording to this biographer. I suppose being president managed to change something of him. We'll see, I'm only a fifth of the way through the book, and truthfully, this Illinois period of his life is kind of boring - I don't really care much about the big political issues of Sangamon County in the mid-nineteenth century, and they didn't seem to be all that important to Lincoln besides being political party lines to follow.
Here's something I doubt anybody cares to know. I took out a n old, dull pocketknife and scraped my retainer clean. That white crap that builds up, it comes off if you get a metal object and dig at it. Didn't you want to know that.
So I've been motivated for a very long time to get a knowledge management module running for me to record stuff I learn. It would have been nice, in particular, to have recorded everything I did to get things for Mandrake Linux working in my laptop's previous incarnation, which I really don't remember and basically have to relearn to make work again. Though this time the problem is with the software extender and the big hard drive, not sure how I'm going to work through this one... But if I do, I'll stick the record in my knowledge management system.
