Requiem for a Cannoli

What can I say? I want some dessert.

In a strange twist of semantics, two terms often used at my job are "hard fix " and "easy fix." This sounds like they should be opposites, but they're not. A "hard fix" is one in which the problem is something physical and obvious, like a break in the cross connects. The "hard" comes from the circuit being "down hard," that is to say it is just not working at all as opposed to taking errors or bouncing. An "easy fix" is one that is... well... easy. The aforementioned break in cross connects problem is easy to identify and correct, thus making it "easy." The two terms are not exactly synonymous, but they can often refer to the exact same job.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon to see what the deal is with my arm. The ache hasn't been as prominent as it was before, but the pain still flares up from time to time. It may be subsiding, or I may just be better at favoring the arm. It is certainly a better situation than the one facing poor dollyknuckles, however.
