Not too bad a 'fast' compared to some of my spring ones. Now for the fun of catching up! Here's a hodge-podge of some high points, avoiding those that will show up on my monthly summary post anyway:

     Last Monday on the bus on the way to work, I had a revelation about a very old (but necessary) plot point in the Shado-novella, and how to make it work with my story-world as it is now. Very grateful for that!

     Also had a breakthrough on how to do AND/OR searches in IDM Find, and not just one or the other. Oddly enough, since having that breakthrough, I've had things come up which practically required it, and I'd gotten by tolerably well without it for years!

     My previous boss noticed the raindrop-shaped blue lace agate I hung on the wall of my cube! Delighted, as I've had a leaf and a snowflake there for months, and it was her idea I add a raindrop for spring.

     Got the cat enclosure set up Saturday, which makes them quite happy!

     Today a coworker wiped out some formulas on an Excel spreadsheet and I thought I'd have to spend a good chunk of time very tediously putting them all in again...until I glanced at the third tab to find a note from myself from I-don't-know-how-many-years ago with the formula stashed away 'in case she erases them again'! Yay! Way to predict the future and save myself time! =D
