Thus, no posting for two weeks. Work, exercise in front of TV, occasional bicycling, making cookies, square dancing. What else is there in life?
Well, I went to Arisia, actually. Lots of hotel lossage. Lots of buying crap for Jocelyn. Lots of playing games. Not a lot else, actually. Saw the masquerade, didn't stay for the awards. Went to the lightning talks, which I find interesting. I didn't buy any books, mostly because Ken buys them at Pandemonium when they come out and I have a fairly long queue, and I haven't been spending enough time reading. Some books in my queue I bought last Arisia.
Getting a crown on tooth #2, so have a plastic tooth there now. This'll complete the set on the upper right (all four back teeth). Completed the set on upper left a couple years ago, and on the lower right this past fall. Dunno what's going on with the lower left -- no crowns at all there!
My computer is vaguely sick. Its video card makes the image kind of wiggly. It's most annoying when the background is non-white, so often it is innocuous. But perhaps I should be replacing my 10-yr-old XP computer that also isn't very reliable about shutting down, sometimes I have to remove the battery. Don't want Windows 8 or 10, tho. Want Windows 7, with which I have made peace. Well, want XP, which IMHO was the apex of Windows systems in terms of usability, but figure 7 is the better part of valor. Guess I should poke around on ebay.
School search is on hold; we've applied and we'll find out in March. Couple small things left in the application process. Then agonizing.
Making plans for more trips; gonna go to Vegas again to visit my ailing aunt, my parents will come down while we're there. And we'll do vast tourist stuff. Spending money like water: I bought tickets for Cirque de Soleil.
