I really wanted to update more often this week. I'm exhausted, though. I'm at the launch of a new project and I'm the project manager, so I'm putting in a lot of extra hours. I've gotten a chance to start working with a great team - including a couple new folks I've not worked with before. I'm energized by that during the day. It's just when I get home that my brain turns to fluffy mackerel pudding.
So, just some brief updates: the cat has a cold. At least we hope it's only a cold. Pumpkin slipped off this mortal coil back in the fall after exhibiting many of the same symptoms and then just getting worse and worse. *sigh*
Anyone planning to go to the 64th World Science Fiction Convention in LA? I'll be there! I had a chance to go to the one held up here in San Jose a few years back and blew it. I'm not going to let another opportunity get away from me. I've paid my registration to the convention folk and reserved my room at the hotel. Whoopee!!
The SO is going down to Central Calif. this weekend to play in a billiards tournament. I won't mention the town but he's less than thrilled about the locale. If he gets to go on to the finals, however, those are in Las Vegas. I hope I can get time off to go. If it's before June, probably out of the question - after that it's more likely.
Now that Comedy Central is playing regular clips of highlights from Jon Stewart's Daily Show their site hits are through the roof. Used to be folks might wander by once a month or so - now they come by three or four times a week because there's a new clip every day from the previous night's show. Clever stuff.
I've spoken about the Friday night Geekathon before - well finally Monk is back, as well as Numbers. I read that this summer The 4400, The Dead Zone and Rescue Me are coming back as well. Yay! Maybe I watch too much tv? Well, all my dear Canadian friends ought to be happy - aren't a lot of these shows filmed up there?
Hope all is well with you and yours! Only two weeks 'til St. Patrick's day!
dawno, 64th World Science Fiction Convention, Fluffy Mackerel Pudding, Jon Stewart
