Sigh, Feeling the Fool

So, earlier today the Jetta broke down. Jess took it to the shop and got a rental, blah blah blah.

Jana came over (yay jana) and chilled out for a while. I gave her a ride to sa meeting at 7:30, with a promise from her she would be back so I could sit over her shoulder and help her get started on her graphics project.

She did, and around midnight, when I was ready to take her home, I started looking for the key.

And looking for it.

And looking for it.

After spending 30 minutes and not finding it, I finally gave up, walked her back over to Harvard, and came back here.

And looked.

And Looked.

And finally found it...

... In Jess's tote bag, right where I'd gotten it from in the first place.

Yes, I spent 3 hours in the middle of the night slowly panicing over a lost rental car key -- to the point that I tried to call the shop to see if I could get a spare (no answer) -- only to find out that I'd already put the key away.

And now I'm tired, and cranky, and have gotten almost nothing of what I wanted to tonight done. There is one exception to this: we got SDLRoads movedd off sourceforge and onto Google Code -- which means it is in SVN now, and that we have a sane set of tools for managing the project.

Regardless of anything else that went wrong this evening, at least I was able to chat up some old friends and move a long-practically dead project out of death and into a spot where it's usable again.
