Friday and distractions

Another beautiful day in Boston – and I’m finding it so hard to concentrate…. Long weekend is looming, meetings all afternoon, garden needs tending, and it is gorgeous outside.


Thanks, Wondermark. Maybe if I manage to avoid all distractions I’ll be able to get through today in one piece.

Long overdue

I haven’t posted much, been too busy traveling, so I thought I’d take one minute out of my morning and post this:

Regular updates (including NaNoWriMo updates!) will resume shortly.

Going to NY

It’s been a long week, but now the weekend is upon us. Steph and I are on our way to NY to visit my brother and his family, and then to see my Mom. When I get back I need to check out: And now your moment of nonZense:

Picadilly Records Magic Mix

I just ran into something interesting. Reading the Stray Thoughts section of Warren Ellis’ (superb) blog, I discovered the Piccadilly Records site, where you can Magic Mix a bunch of tracks. Interesting way to find new music.

So many other things to blog about: home, work, writing, reading, fantasy football, the slow demise of summer, I just have a con call in 10 minutes 🙁

Monday Already?

Made a ton of progress on Operation: Remodel this weekend – including buying a 42″ flat screen tv. Thinking about it brings a small tear to my eye. It is so beautiful, and it does improve my Guitar Hero abilities!

Now its back to a full week of work. Joyous. List of things to do is longer than my arm.

Thankfully, Valerie wrote a great little post which made life a little funnier this morning!

Sixty Four Comes In Peace at

Happy Fourth of July! It’s been a good week. And now, I’m on vacation. Going to a family thing later today, then we are packing up our stuff to spend a week on the cape! Very exciting.

RileySmile posted a new dance track, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I am going to clean up this house and get going. If I don’t blog, well, its because of vacation! Woohoo! I am honestly trying to unplug for an entire week. Will I start shaking? Who knows.

Friday… what a wonderful day

Yesterday was just gorgeous out, and we went for a nice after work walk to Jamaica Pond. Then we grilled steaks outside on the BBQ. Oh wonders of late Spring/early Summer! Tonight we’re going to Ten Tables in JP to celebrate my aging process, and Saturday I’m regretfully off to London for a week of work. Don’t know how often I’ll be updating. I have a bunch of stuff on my camera that I need to unload, and holy host of work to finish before landing in London.

I found this from Neil Gaiman’s blog – haunting, creepy, and beautiful.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend….
