matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Passion_of_the_Christ)
Work was as insane as I expected it to be: I don't think I want to see another ham for a while, but they're a sight better to handle than turkeys. Something about the shape, plus the hams we sell tend to be wrapped up in a mesh bag over the red-and-gold foil, so they're easier to grab. But as with last year, the customers were well-behaved.

Taking it easy tonight, sort of. Reading and listening to Dubois's "The Seven Last Words". St. Joe's downtown used to play a recording of that every Good Friday at noon, following the Stations of the Cross. Lovely piece for choir, tenor and baritone soloists, and pipe organ, very dramatic stuff. I was lucky to get my hands on a copy of the record -- a 12" 33-1/2 rpm, no less, and it's a hard one to find -- at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift shop some years ago.
