This weekend, most of my friends down here will be running or attending Ba-Con. A convention dedicated to gaming, geeks, technology, and, of course, Bacon. It started last year, and is promising to be even more awesome this year. So, if you’re bored Friday night or on Saturday, come on out to the best new con in Columbus. I’ll be in the group throwing the big party Saturday night. It’s going to be a blast.

In other news, we leave Tuesday for our week in Boise. So everyone out there, heads up. We’ll be in town, but without wheels, so if you want to see us, give us a call and come pick us up. πŸ˜‰ Need our phone numbers? Just email. Anyone still gaming? Got big party plans for the 4th? Let us know. We can hardly wait to see everyone. (And for folk here in town, enjoy theΒ  various picnics, I’ll be missing you and the tasty food.)

June is almost over, it’s been rough. Looking forward to a better July.

Officially Summer June 21, 2012

Longest day of the year, and official start to summer was yesterday. And the temperatures are certainly agreeing. Lots of high 80s and low 90s around here these days. Occasional drops of rain to cool it down, but far less than is good for us.

My parents had a busy weekend: 39th anniversary, Father’s Day and moving all in three days’ time. But they seem to have survived it (and the down pouring rains) without too much hassle. I look forward to more pictures and actually getting to visit them at some point.

This Saturday is full of overlapping friends’ gatherings. A women’s event, a cookout wedding reception, and my usual night out. Oh, and I have to work all morning. Not sure what all I’m going to make it to. But it should be a fun day.

Less than two weeks until our trip to Boise. We’re pondering watching the fireworks from Bogus. Also, going to Wingers and Fuddruckers are a must. I miss good burgers and Wingers’ sauce. (No, Mike, I’m not getting a veggie burger, that’s what Northstar is for.)

Anyone going to England for the Olympics and have a suitcase I can hitch a ride in? I’ve got a place to stay, I just can’t afford the ticket… πŸ˜‰Β  Okay, can’t afford to miss the work either, but hey, who’s counting…

Also still looking for a job at a nonprofit. Not having much luck, or I don’t have the right skill sets they need. No word back from Mongoose. Anyone need a website designed or maintained? πŸ˜‰

 

Don’t Go June 14, 2012

Prometheus was so much bad packed into one movie. Bad writing, bad acting, bad plot, bad explanations, bad suspense, bad logic. It had pretty special effects and a couple good lines. That’s it. Don’t go see it, and if you do, don’t spend too much money to do so. Very disappointed.

The picnic on Sunday was a great success though. Lots of friends and food and good times. Really hot and sunny, but I’m a fan. Though a storm would have been fun, too. The smoked pulled pork was amazing as always. Lots of fruit and desserts floating around, too.Β  And another cookout has been added to my schedule for next weekend.

Father’s Day this weekend as well. Happy Father’s Day to my dad and all my friends who are dads or are becoming dads. πŸ™‚

 

 

Look At My Penguin Minions! June 7, 2012

All my Penguin Minions

I got the critter bites recipe in WoW today, and made an entire iceberg of penguins into myΒ  minions for three minutes. It was fun. πŸ™‚

I sent out two emails yesterday about jobs. One editing, one for data entryish. We’ll see what comes back from those. The store is doing alright by me for hours most weeks. Though sometimes in big chunks, so fewer days, which can be fun, or odd, or boring, depending. πŸ˜‰

I’m looking for parks to go play in on Mondays, have had a few nearby suggested. So, that should be fun. Take some time to get away from the technology and just relax. Maybe get in some stargazing. I haven’t pulled my telescope out in over a decade.

Lots of events coming up this summer. Family trips, conventions, birthdays, anniversaries, picnics. I’m looking forward to having a great summer.

This weekend, we’re going to see Prometheus, in Imax 3D. Not a fan of the latter myself, but the technology keeps improving, so hopefully it’ll just be awesome and not headache inducing.

Reading Road to the Patriarch still. I love the characters, but I’m not sure I like how the story is playing out. We’ll see where it goes from here. May have to move on to Catching Fire next. Not sure. So much to read.

Been eating better, too, this week. Lots of salad and only a little pizza. πŸ˜‰
