Montecristo Captain Quixote

... But Life is Both a Major and a Minor Key; Just Open Up the Chord

We all try hard to live our lives in harmony,
For fear of falling swiftly overboard,
But life is both a major and a minor key,
Just open up the chord

Travis: "Side"

I've been insanely busy the last couple of weeks. I'm finishing up a large project at work, McGuffin is threatening to completely sideways on us, Jackie is begining to take steps toward making independent major life-influencing decisions and my mom has been recovering from a broken hip and shoulder. All told though, things are okay because I have been managing to stay on top of the things that require my interaction and the stuff I can do little about has not been ruinous. It's a good thing.

I've got a long post about "How I Spent My Thanksgiving Vacation" brewing on the burner, but I've moved it to the back of the stove right now because I have been thinking pretty hard for the last couple of days, sometimes, even when I should have been sleeping and others, even when I should have been working, but that's just how I am. When I have something I'm trying to figure out I tend to bulldog it until I get some results that satisfy me. Sometimes this annoys people around me who see the process in action or actually interact with me in the context of me thinking things through.
