Thursday Already? October 20, 2016

I’m having a hard time keeping days straight with my schedule. One of them is constant, the other is completely moldable, this is not terribly good for my consistency, nor my sense of time. But somewhat good for my sleeping. 😉 I did spend a bit of time taking the paint splatters off my bedroom floor, and a bit in the office, though I’ve got more to go in here.

Not much to report this week. I spent the weekend relaxing at home in comfy clothes and blankets. There was some WoW and some Netflix, and a good deal of sleep. I didn’t get a second interview from my phone interview a couple weeks back. Another month+ before I can start looking at CML postings outside my branch. But I should be getting my preliminary review soon for Whitehall. Health-wise, feeling a bit better this week than last, though the weather has turned sour.

I finished The Martian, and started on Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher. The difference in pace has me struggling a little, but it’s getting interesting. Next up, I think I’m going to try some Myth books by Asprin.

Okay, so just two friends who currently live in Scotland, but still. It will be good to see Marianne after all these years, and to finally meet Daniel in person. 🙂 Looking forward to Saturday.

Another manager down after this week. Weeeee, fun! But we’re gearing up for the holidays, it shall be another fantastic ride.

Week 8 of 10 for Digital Preservation. We’re almost done, folks! And then I’ll have just one class for the next month. Spring registration is coming up soon, too. It’s all very exciting. Making about 95% in both my classes this semester, so that’s cool.

Reading a lot lately. Finished the first two books in David Gerrold’s War Against the Chtorr books, looking forward to reading more. Read Bug Wars by Robert Asprin, as well this week. It is short, and succinct… and interesting. I really wanted more details, but felt a kinship with that kind of shortness. Now I’m on to Wm. Mark Simmons, and I realized today that I started reading the second book first, so I’ll have to start over again with In the Net of Dreams tomorrow.

Watched Maleficent and Expendables 3 on Friday night at the dollar theater. Both were entertaining, and that’s really all I ask of movies. 🙂
