Today is my first day back to work after my little trip to same-day surgery ****. I shall use the time to properly think about my week affairs.

We're going to get snow tonight - maybe up to a foot. I will get out and snow show maybe. I'm really feeling the need for some activity after moping around the house all week like a sicko.

My kitchen creation for the weekend shall be salt water taffy.

I don't have any other plans. I owe my son a movie and he's on vacation this weekend so it would be a good time to go but we've not found a movie either of us are anxious to see. Anyone suggestions?

I've been in the office for an hour now and no one else has come in yet. I feel like I missed a memo.

No big weekend plans this weekend. Getting our tax stuff all pulled together and general house/kid stuff.

The morning started off busy, but I have a feeling it's going to be a boring day. Saturday, I'm getting my Moogle on at the Distant Worlds concert. Sunday, I'll probably take a nap or something.

Edit: I was right, it was a boring day.

I almost went to Pittsburg for that concert, since it isn't that far from me.

Bday event tonight for a friend, tomorrow I am hosting a werewolf party at my place, and Sunday I will probably be SW:TORing the day away.

http://oxcgn.com/

Just a small, Australia-based Wordpress site. We link primarily through N4G. I'm not being paid, but it's been nice for getting my sea legs with game journalism. I'm trying to build a resume within the game industry while still pursuing licensure in Architecture. Don't know what I'd do with it yet, but I've got this notion of wedding the two interests, somehow.

I should be attending E3 on their behalf, which I'm pretty excited about. It's not something I ever expected I'd do.

I actually have both Saturday and Sunday off this week, so naturally, today is dragging ***.

Nothing really planned. If it's nice outside, there's plenty of **** to clean up. Other than that, working on some personal projects.

I have an album on iTunes now... finally. It will be on the other main music sites within the week. I'm super excited about that.


Yesterday saw some great weather. It was 70 all day, so I took a good sized bike ride and went to Market Square to play for an hour or two. Went and saw Star Wars in 3D with the ladyfriend, (she'd never seen any of them) which was fun, even if it was gimmicky. Clothes shopping today. Going to the semi-finals of the voice contest I entered in Oak Ridge on Saturday, but I doubt I'll see myself in the finals. I was told yesterday that I needed to have a country song and an R&B song by Saturday. (The guy running it lost my email, apparently) I'm hoping to not move at all on Sunday. That's the plan, at least.

These things are not a necessity. You can now get disposable undies (probably from amazon) and pizza/chinese will be delivered right to your door (well, not my door, but many doors).

My husband actually commented yesterday on my lack of dirty laundry. I guess I lounged around in the same pair of sweats all week.

Winning the lottery is all about not having to fill your home with the scent of burning foot every night.

Besides, any time I feel a draft I'll have an Irishman shovel more panda cubs into the furnace.

I need to find out if I can get rides to some meetings for the Faerie Festival
Sat. and pagan group Sun. I like to go to both, but otherwise will spend days knitting and caring for Jonwin as needed. Tomorrow meeting is at the camp ground we are having the Faerie Festival at and I think it would do Jonwin a lot of good to go also.

For someone with a total knee replacement just a week ago, he is getting around far better then expected. I hardly have to lift a finger to help me most of the time. He got up and made us pancakes this morning without any help on my part.

I'm reminded by no less than 10 people every time I play. :P

Relevant: My grandmother used to heat my grandfather's clothes in the oven during the winter. This practice stopped when my grandfather was unsure whether or not he needed to wear his nice get-up the next day, and the overpopulated oven incinerated two whole outfits.

Sunday I'm headed down to Westchester with my family, to drop my brother- in-law at his mother's and then show off then new baby to my wife's friends.

I've found that it's much safer, if more tedious, to sneak around and incapacitate enemies using take-downs or stun guns.

Apparently my douchey beard is a magnet for bullets in addition to ridicule.

You would think this wouldn't be much of a problem, but I can ensure you from personal experiance that it is indeed possible for an idiot hairstylist to at very least cut a chunk out of the edge of ones right ear when one was only 4 years old somehow, leaving a notch in said ear to this very day which is really quite annoying.

The Second time that happened, when I was 10, i'm pretty sure I taught them some new words. Same damned ear too. And it's not like they stick out further than normal or something.
