Hard to Say No to Microsoft (Tuesday, May 25, 2004)

So last night, Claire and I finally made pizza... with bacon and black olives. It was good! Though I still can't seem to get the crust quite right. I just need to practice more, I think. Hmmm... maybe I can make pizza again tonight! Anyway, Claire's been having a rough time with her painting business, and I feel really bad for her, because I know how much it sucks. I want her to be successful more than anything, but she's really far behind, and she's really blowing it off — like right now, she's supposed to be out marketing, and instead she's sitting in front of the computer. I know it's hot, and I know the cicadas are creepy, and I know that clients are bastards, but if you've got a committment, you need to just do it — or quit. But she knows this, and she'll do what she's going to do, when she does it, and until she does, I don't have to worry about it.

After dinner, we were sitting around watching basketball, and who should call? Harv, my would-have-been manager at Microsoft! They really want me... he even offered to send Claire flowers, to help convince her she wants to come keep me company in Seattle. I don't think either of us is ready for the kind of committment that would imply — hell, she still needs to break up with Bob! I think moving 3,000 miles away together is still down the road. Let's see if she can make it through the summer, first.

Claire left pretty early last night, and I finished Prisoner of Azkaban (oh, I so cannot wait for this movie!), and went to sleep. This morning, I started in on Goblet of Fire, because I just can't get enough of Harry Potter, and then Claire came over and I made us breakfast. I finally shooed her off, and managed to get some work done — closed a couple of support issues and reassigned one, and took care of some other stuff. I also finally got my new mortgage application in the mail, so I need to fill that out and mail it back pretty soon. I also need to make it over to the library and make a copy of this expense report, and then to the post office to mail it. That'll happen a little later, I think. For now, it's back to work!
