Had a great weekend down in Cincinnati meeting new people, learning new things, eating good food. This is my weekend off between cons, so I’m spending it relaxing… and possibly bowling, or maybe just cheering.

Class work was pretty quick this week, too. More fun with Excel. Getting all the basics down before we get into the meat of the class. Two more weeks until I start my second class. So, I’ll enjoy the slow pace while it lasts.

Still reading Kushiel’s Dart (did I mention it’s really long). But have also started Book 3 of War with the Chtorr. Book five, which had been on the coming soon list at B&N, is now back out of the system… again. Ah well, most people said it was a false hope.

Fighting a cold this week, thanks DeCon. 😉  It was a good weekend hanging out with friends and relaxing. Watched a bit of Labyrinth and Princess Bride. Played some Cards. Learned some new trivia and old.

I like my Information class so far. We’re learning to play with Excel and IF statements. So far, so good, if due dates are a little confusing again. But it’ll all sort out, she gave us a good check list to help keep track. And transcripts of the videos, which always help.

Watching M.A.S.H. the movie as I type this. I knew the opening song was depressing, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard it before… :/  Odd movie night for me. Just watched Mean Girls, because a few friends said I ought to see that. Not bad for a high school flick.

Learned some things about waffles today. Gotta make sure the iron is well oiled, ended up with cooked waffle batter stuck to both sides of the iron, and a plateful of pancakes instead. Learned I can good pancakes alright, though, first time for everything.
