Tired from lack of sleep last night. It’s gonna be a cat-free zone tonight.
Work wasn’t too bad. I worked on software purchases, did some more cleanup and stripped, cleaned and built a computer while listening to episodes of the CBS Radio Mystery Theater.
After I got home I worked on lots of weasel stuff, made dinner and watched a new episode of Dirty Jobs. I’ve been working on updating pages on the TW site, shading older strips and working on the upcoming book. Today’s strip isn’t ready, but that’s the breaks. Sometimes the deadline is a harsh mistress.
Think I’m gonna sleep now.
One of my nieces turns 22 today! I hope she goes out and has some fun for her birthday.
It’s been quite a day, the rains have made a real mess of thing here. I really wish I had a camera today. As it was, I got a co-worker to snap a picture with her phone of the creek behind the office.
I know it’s hard to get a sense of scale from this picture, but usually this creek is about a 10th of this size. I’ve been working at this place for 12 years and I’ve never seen it get that deep!
Well, after all the stories of Interstates being closed and neighborhoods under water, a crawlspace with a few inches of water in it isn’t so bad after all!
Bleh, time for bed.
I went in for some tests today. Between my heart being a little wonky and feeling like general crap the past couple weeks, it was time. They took blood, did some x-rays and got me hooked up to a portable EKG for the next 24 hours. It wasn’t cheap, but hopefully it will give us and idea of what is going on when the results come back in a week.
Don’t worry too much, I think I’ll be all right.
For now, you can have a little pic of me all wired up for the tests.
DragonCon is behind us and it’s time to get back to the normal (I know, I still need to finish putting up pics though). Today, we got caught up on the yard work that’s been on hold for the past couple weeks. The grass was getting tall enough in the back yard that the squirrels were starting to hide from us! Now the mowing is done and that has been taken care of. After all, we can’t have them out of the sights of Angela’s pellet rifle now, can we?
After that, we did some errands done and we parked ourselves over at the Porter. Today they were celebrating their 1 year anniversary and there were some specialty beers on tap for the occasion. If you haven’t tried this place yet, you need to. The food is great and they have a beer for every taste and occasion.
Once we trundled back from there, we camped out on the couches to watch the movie Changeling. We’ve heard many good things about it and they are true. J. Michael Straczynski, Ron Howard and Clint Eastwood did an amazing job with this movie.
Bleh, it’s time for bed.
