RIDICULOUSLY BRIEF UPDATE ON MY LIFE AND THAT SORT OF THING
(Translation: I will probably be late.)
No time or inclination to go into detail of the "vacation," but I will say that we spent the time off in town, dealing with lots of the "stuff" that I haven't been able to turn to over the past few months while I was so swamped with work. Work remains good believe it or not, but as should be obvious to any of my remaining readers, it keeps me very busy.
Anyhow, the time off allowed me to break up the routine if nothing else, and believe it or not, the complete collapse of my computering ability due to The Fucking Virus™ permitted me to rediscover the joys of reading, listening to tunes, and drinking beer.
(Ok, I do those things anyway, but time off from work and no PC left me more time.)
Briefly, and then I've got a plane to catch, a short list of what I've been digging:
Beer: Rogue Chocolate Stout (or something that sounds like that) -- wow.
Books: I re-read Steinbeck's East of Eden for maybe the third or fourth time. Still great. One of those books that can, and will, mean something different every time you return to it. Hopefully I'll have more time to address this later on. Probably not though.
Music: Belle & Sebastian, especially their two earliest albums, Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister. I'm addicted.
Lot's more to say, but no time to sa--
