Its so night

My blog title is ungrammatical, and will drive the Kalen and Kathy crazy. But I'll eventually explain that. Not in this post, mind you ...

More than a month since the last update! Ridiculous.

My fault, obviously. I can't really pin it on anyone else. Oh, but I will. Part (only part) of the reason is that, during what has been the kids Christmas break, I spent time lounging around with them, or playing D&D with them, etc, rather than spending time writing blog entries. Since a major target of this blog is them, I can just talk to them rather than write. But, as of today they're all back in school. So, they can update their blogs soon with start-of-semester updates.

But, I can write other times. Like when I'm waiting for a lab to load, like right now.

Another part of the reason is that I've got a bit of a backlog here at work that I'm digging through, a good deal of it because I let it build up. So, I need to clear that. But, the lab loading is part of that, and I've got another compile running, and so this is just another thing I can multitask at the moment.

So, what's been going on:

Metric excrement-loads of D&D: Worthy of it's own post. Let's call that Wednesday.

Christmas, home for the holidays, etc: Another post. Let's call that one tomorrow (Tuesday).

There, I have a couple topics for coming posts. Let's see if I can keep to it.

Fantasy football: Subject of that long-ago previous post. I won one league (the one with prize money!), and came in third in the other one. TIED the semi-final game, and we never figured out exactly what the tie-breaker was. Whatever it was, the Yahoo! computer settled it and put me in the consolation game. The team that beat me in the semi-final ALSO tied in the final game (who'd thunk it?), but they lost that tie-breaker. So, my D&D pal Dick Gilbert, who got me into the league, won the playoffs.

Home improvement: we're finally getting ready to re-do the downstairs half-bath (aka powder room). I'm going to tile the floor and half-way up the walls there, my first attempt at ceramic tile. It's good to start there because it's a small area, I can start with the wall behind the toilet so I can practice where no one will look. I've got the wall tile and all the materials needed. The floor tile should be in in the next couple of days. I still need to get some drywall (or DensShield) to re-do some or all of the wallboard ("all" may depend on whether I decide to move the light switch). And, a new door as well. And then I'll either need to have that delivered or rent a pickup to get that stuff, since I no longer have a vehicle for hauling (not that it'd be worth having just for this). Anyway, I'll write more about that soon. Let's say on Sunday, by which time I should be knee-deep in the project.

Other stuff? Well, I can't think of it right now, but I know I have other stuff. I'll just have to keep on this and write as I think about it.

For now, my lab is loaded, so back to work.

  • No, just to isspay me off. I'd look at the blog and think, "Damn, I need to put an update in".

    I'm trying to be better. Stay tuned.
