It’s trying to be spring, finally. Rain and warm and all. Though forgetting and being Cold every now and then, too. Typical Ohio. Better than out west though, with their tornadoes and hailstorms. Nearly a very ย nice day today.

Finished Number of the Beast, with all the worlds colliding. Probably going to pick up Cat Who Walked Through Walls on Audible today, as I’m still waiting on the library copy. Listened to a collection of Drizzt tales in the middle time. Only two more books to go on my current Heinlein list. Might check on Night Angel trilogy by Weeks after this, I’ve been meaning to read it since my brother bought me the omnibus.

Safelite goes as Safelite does. They’re having another job fair on May 7th, if anyone is looking for a job. Still having fun at Sprawl, I had some more Heinlein today, and a bunch of authors I’ve never heard of. A quiet weekend ahead for me. Laundry, and dishes, are my main goal. Maybe hit the dollar theater and the Ohioana Book Festival, if I’m feeling rambunctious.

NGS! And other things. February 13, 2014

So, the biggest news this week is the NGS (Narrative Game System) Kickstarter began Wednesday morning and we are already 2/3 the way to our goal.

In other news, Happy belated Birthday Uncle John! You are now on my calendar as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you had a great day Saturday. Heading to see my nephew this Sunday to wish him an in-person belated birthday.

In school news, I got a 95% on my first paper. Second paper is due Sunday. The class is going really well. I’m enjoying the discussions and most of the readings. My second class this semester starts Monday. And on the 24th, I get to register for summer session. Everything is going great. Except that a lot of the scholarships are minority only that I’m seeing lately, and the assistantships require me to take one more class a semester than I am planning to, in order to be eligible. :/ ย Still looking for things to apply for, though. Need to find that bookseller one again.

In reading, I’ve just got the epilogue left and I’m done with the Neverwinter Saga, so I can finally read The Companions, that I bought and had signed last fall. Then I’ve got some Goodkind to catch up on. And maybe Night Angel trilogy after that. Life is good.

Look At My Penguin Minions! June 7, 2012

All my Penguin Minions

I got the critter bites recipe in WoW today, and made an entire iceberg of penguins into myย  minions for three minutes. It was fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

I sent out two emails yesterday about jobs. One editing, one for data entryish. We’ll see what comes back from those. The store is doing alright by me for hours most weeks. Though sometimes in big chunks, so fewer days, which can be fun, or odd, or boring, depending. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m looking for parks to go play in on Mondays, have had a few nearby suggested. So, that should be fun. Take some time to get away from the technology and just relax. Maybe get in some stargazing. I haven’t pulled my telescope out in over a decade.

Lots of events coming up this summer. Family trips, conventions, birthdays, anniversaries, picnics. I’m looking forward to having a great summer.

This weekend, we’re going to see Prometheus, in Imax 3D. Not a fan of the latter myself, but the technology keeps improving, so hopefully it’ll just be awesome and not headache inducing.

Reading Road to the Patriarch still. I love the characters, but I’m not sure I like how the story is playing out. We’ll see where it goes from here. May have to move on to Catching Fire next. Not sure. So much to read.

Been eating better, too, this week. Lots of salad and only a little pizza. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not much to say, just one month down. And the weather still hasn’t caught up. Eeks’ hubby comes home this weekend, so that’s awesome news. My nephew turns 6 Sunday, so Happy Birthday to him. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lately, I’ve been enjoying watching NUMB3RS on Netflix, and reading more Drizzt novels by Salvatore. I’m nearly caught up, and some day, need to try The Omen Machine by Goodkind, it’s sitting on the shelf waiting.

Taxes are done and the refund looks good. Health is fairly decent and things are getting taken care of.

Not much to report this week. Still applying to jobs at Elance, no bites yet, but several still under consideration. I’ve been watching the Harry Potter movies this week in preparation for the release of the first half of the seventh this weekend. Makes me want to sit down and read the whole series again. I’ve got a whole stack of books I haven’t even read the first way through, yet, too. The purported end of the Deverry series – final four books, all in hard cover. The last real Robert Jordan, and then Sanderson’s two. I’m even behind on Salvatore, and haven’t finished Eddings’ Redemption of Athalus, though I’m getting close on that one.

Thanksgiving with friends next week. Then the holidays begin. Ah, retail at holiday. At least we stay busy. The nookColor demos came in this week. Lots of fun to play with. Browser works really well and the picture quality is excellent. There are now 43 magazines available, too. Netbook still needs a new video cable, probably going to have to ebay it. Troublesome little thing, but oh so handy when it’s working.

Much to do, never enough time, enjoy what I have and work towards more.
