UK lab confirms mad-cow finding

...and back to the grind!

Been at work about 10 minutes, looked up a list of what's reportable for the day and it came out at 18 items. That'd keep one person fairly busy, two people busy in spurts with some lulls, and it'll keep 3 of us occupied for perhaps two hours total each.

Ah well. Was a nice holiday and just the one workday before the weekend.

So far my nebulous weekend plans include seeing The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and exchanging a sweater that I mistakenly listed as a size too large for me (the same sweater I decorated with syrah earlier this month). Oh yes, and we pick up Sonya Sunday evening. Otherwise, 'twill be a quiet weekend, really looking forward to it.
