Much to do

Well, yesterday I got The Pathfinder (newsletter of SI-NAUMS) photocopied. I didn't do color this time, which is a shame, but gotta get this edition out. Now to find my mailing list, make labels, etc. Hope to get this in the mail by Monday.

The rehearsal went well last night, the dinner was excellent. So, gots me a wedding this afternoon. Oughta be fun. These are good folks.

But what I really need is some time off for us -- and the dog. Sassy is depressed, what with the weather being so oppressive and all. We'd like to take her to the nearby state park, but that takes time we don't much have. And collinsmom departs Sunday afternoon for her start of classes Monday morning, so I'll be batching it through Thursday. Surely somewhere in there I can take the dog to the park.

Wise Words

"No madman has ever dreamed up anything so weird that some philosopher will not say it."

Postremo nemo aegrotus quidquam somniat tam infandum, guod non aliquis dicat philosophus.

-- Varro, Fragmenta

"If it's well said, I said it."

Quidquid bene dictum est ab ullo meum est.

-- Seneca the Younger, Epistulae Morales, XVI, 7

"Plague take those who said our wise words before we did."

Pereant qui ante nos nostra dixerunt.

-- St. Jerome, In Ecclesiasten Commentarius, I
