We had a great weekend at a cabin in the Hocking Hills. Playing board games and D&D. Last weekend I went to the RenFaire again, and watched three jousts, three mud shows, a couple pirate shows and bits and pieces of other shows.

At work I’ve gotten my survey results and made lots of pretty pie charts. Now, I’m working on getting the Usability Study organized and running.

In the audio world, I’ve caught up on Season two of Critical Role and I’ve started Season one. It was really fun to watch their live show at NY ComicCon and I’ve been watching a lot of random related videos on Geek and Sundry, as well. Since the last post, I’ve finished Dread Nation and also listened to Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. On the writing side, I’ve pickup up an old gifted journal to get my creative brain rolling again.

Welcome to Summer May 31, 2012

Summer is hitting full force. This past weekend we were hitting the 90 degree mark and occasionally passing it. The humidity came right along with it, too. Therefore, I stayed inside pretty much all the time. We didn’t get to go rollerblading like we hoped, nor out to Hocking Hills for a hike. It was too hot. A whole bunch of my friends, however, braved the heat for a camping trip. I was sad I could not go, but there were other things to take care of. By all accounts, it was a great time, with games and s’mores and smoked meats of various varieties. They’ve all told me I have to go next year. I’ll have to plan better so that I can. 🙂

I, instead, spent quite a lot of time playing WoW. I’m now level 80, and flying quite fast. Leveling goes far too quickly these days. I have so much more of Northrend yet to do, since I’ve never done it before. And yet, they’re trying to send me on, because I’ve outleveled most of the content. I’m stubborn though, and quite alright with doing grey or green level quests, and hitting max before I even get to Cataclysm content.  I’m also up to 64 pets. So close to the next milestone of 75. But there are 150, so quite a lot left to do there. Enjoying all the fishing and cooking and archeology, too. And 5 short of the next mount achievement of 50, as well.

Coming up: Father’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, trips and conventions. A busy summer indeed.

So, apparently cabins in the Hocking Hills must be rented for two nights at a time on summer weekends. There goes that anniversary idea. We’ll have to take a look at what’s available more locally in the way of a cheap but fun getaway. Too bad about the heat, or we could hit the Ren Faire. We’re saving that for cooler days, though.

Looking forward to seeing all the family on Saturday. Birthday cake, ice cream, children playing and maybe even a round or two of Munchkin. 😉 Have to buy presents at work tomorrow. Yay, last minute shopping.

Hurt my back last week, went to the chiropractor. My spine is apparently lovely, but my hips are crooked. Knew that, we’re working on fixing it. Back finally feels better today.

Getting bored of food again. Wanting more variety. Craving cheese(pizza, mac & cheese, Parmesan covered pasta) a lot lately, too. Joints about the same as always. Not terrible, but not ideal.

The school jobs are a total no-go. I am once again pondering data entry. I’ve only ever done bits of it at my jobs, but I wonder about doing it full time(or ya know, part time, I like flexible schedules). It just doesn’t seem like it’d be fulfilling, unless it was at a really good place. Inertia tends to win. Especially when I have ‘decent’ hours at work and only tiny bits of non-retail experience.

Lots of rambling today, I think I’m done now. See you next week.
