Wild Weather = Angry Sinuses March 26, 2015

Snow one day, 60 degrees the next, and then freezing and snow again by end of week. This weather is driving my head and sinuses crazy. I even took a half day today. The wrong half, apparently, as a hazmat spill made my drive home three times as long at end of day. I had fun with it though and drove through Sunbury and Johnstown on my way home. (For those playing the home game, that was 71N to 36/37E to 161W.)

I had intended to do some homework this week, despite spring break, but plans and exhaustion have kept me from working too hard. Probably will pick it up again on Saturday. Really want to at least get my web final done Saturday before I go to a couple birthday parties.

Play-Testing of Legacy of Heroes 2 is going really well. The party is now split into three groups, and no one has died yet. Which is pretty impressive for a lvl 1 party. Nearly done with Book 4 of War Against the Chtorr series, Really enjoying it. Soon to be joining the fans impatiently waiting for decades for the final book. I’m looking at you David Gerrold…

For all my friends and family who read these blog (and pass it on to those who don’t), I love you, and appreciate having you in my life, whether nearby or around the globe.

Spring Break! Almost… March 19, 2015

I have spring break next week, but I still have a couple of assignments to finish for this week before I can really relax. And even then, I’ll probably do some homework to get ahead next week anyway. But yay, spring break!

Work is going along, some major reorganization of sections on the book floor. So that’s fun, even more so because I actually got to help with it today. Yay, for productivity. New receiving manager has actually started being receiving manager, so that’s helpful. No news yet on the job front.

Lots of things to do with friends this weekend. Looking forward to relaxing, and maybe even watching some old Trek. Gotta get laundry and homework done, first though. Making a noodle/pasta/chicken conglomerate for dinner tonight (and lunch tomorrow… and maybe dinner, too). Hope it turns out alright. I really have to get better at going grocery shopping regularly.

Life is good, and Spring officially starts this weekend. Happy Birthday Alyssa!

Firefox and Food Experiments March 12, 2015

I uninstalled Chrome again last night. Tired of windows popping up unbidden, so I’m back to Firefox for now. Hopefully that will solve the issue for a while. More scanning to follow.

Made myself a chicken and pineapple not-so-flatbread for dinner tonight. I wanted BBQ Chicken pizza, but not having BBQ sauce, nor cheese… nor pizza dough or yeast… I made the base out of Bisquick and just put chunks of pineapple and cooked chicken on top. Cooked for 15 minutes. It wasn’t bad, a little sauce would have helped, though.

Most of my homework done for the week. I have some replies to do yet, and a case study to summarize and analyze tonight. I also have my final PHP/MySQL project to do, but I have a few weeks to turn that one in, if I don’t manage it this weekend.

ConCoction this weekend. It should be a blast. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a good DVD month – Big Hero 6, Hunger Games: Mocking Jay part 1, Sound of Music re-release, Annie, The Hobbit – Battle of the Five Armies, Into the Woods, Unbroken. All the things.

Management changes again (tired of hearing that? Me too!). Once again we are being promised mentors and Proper Training. Two months left in the fiscal year. Weee!

School is going right along. One more MySQL/PHP project to go. I think I understand it well enough now to get my own project moving along in May. Since I don’t have a May Term class this time.

Cleveland ConCoctionย next weekend. Didn’t make it last year. Looking forward to a great time with friends. Then I’m done with cons until May. ๐Ÿ™‚
