Happy New Year to Everyone!

I gamed with friends all weekend. First Rifts and then a handful of board/card/dice games.  Now, I am finishing the night watching football in front of the fireplace.

Hello October October 2, 2014

October has brought the cold nights, and this weekend, cold days. Which will not be so great for camping, though the rain will be the worse part. Ah well, fun with friends, and campfires.

Classes are still keeping me crazy busy. Next week I’m in charge of the project assignment, so that should be extra fun. All seem to be going pretty well, just have to keep up. Metadata in both classes this week, so at least it coordinates a bit.

Things are stabilizing at work. Unfortunately, this means me going back to appropriate number of hours (25) instead of working 30-40 a week. Change-over actually went really well this week, so that’s good. Still looking for seasonal hires. (And yes, still looking for a library job.)

Soon, it will be Halloween!

Fire, Tents, Puppies & Cider October 17, 2013

Camping this past weekend was pretty great. Got there a bit late on Friday, but the new tent was fairly easy to set up, so no harm. And there was freshly warmed cider after we were done. It was beautiful weather, and everyone was relaxed and happy. Dutch oven bread and apple cobbler were amazing as always, as was the rest of the food. Enjoyed playing with both puppies who were out for the weekend, and sitting around a nice toasty campfire.

Back to the grind this week. Another library job did not come through, asked for feedback this time, but haven’t received any. This week’s tech homework is on search engines. Apparently, not many sites link to Denison.edu. 😦 But thanks to friends posting links, I got my current news article post done for my foundations class.

This is a Homecoming weekend in Columbus, before the Halloween madness begins. Four parties in two weeks after that. With my tech class ending in the middle of all that. Wee fun!

And just so we’re clear, still horribly terrified of snakes, thanks Pete.

Storms? What storms? June 13, 2013

I guess the storm came through Columbus last night, my car was wet when I went to work this morning anyway. I didn’t hear anything. Much worse further north. Hope everyone is safe and powered.

Celebrated an engagement with friends this past weekend, I wish them all the best as they plan their lives together. Learned a new game – ladder ball. It was fun, but I’d have to play a lot more to be any good at it. The fire was lovely and warm, though the stone benches remained chilly, which was odd to me, but I guess it takes more heat, or less people blocking them from the fire to warm up.

Got approved for my apartment this week and dropped off the deposit so they’ll hold it for me until I’m ready to move in towards the end of July. A lot of things to do next month for the move.

Father’s Day on Sunday, so Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who read this, and to my Dad, who I think Mom prints this out for him to read.

Lots of friends at Origins this week/end, I think I’m just going to relax, take it easy, and maybe clean my desk.
