So, while the entire world seems to have the day off because of the recent blizzard… I am at work.
Having to start the day off with a shovel and wet shoes has stifled my ability to think, so this is as close to a post as I'm going to get today.

Perhaps tomorrow will be better.
Perhaps tomorrow I will have the beginning of a FAWM song.

I'm At Some Conference Thingy

I'm spending the day in Madison, WI talking about and being talked at about library related stuff.

It sounds terribly exciting, and I'm really.. really.. REEEAAAALLY excited. :-/

I'm planning on bringing my laptop and camera, so I may be around for commenting, emailing, chatting, etc with those of you that turn to me for distraction/entertainment/whatever. 🙂

Oh, and then band practice afterwards. For which I haven't done any practicing whatsoever. Overall, it should be quite the day.

Have you ever played picross? It's a puzzle-type game that you'd probably enjoy if you like solving sudoku's. For someone like me (obsessive-compulsive with some autism-like tendencies) it's proving to be a great way to absolutely massacre time.

If you google for "picross" you'll find a bunch of online versions of it. I've been busy over at and

I was going to go into a rant about work, but I just don't have the energy right now. We lost a good one yesterday.. it's hard.

Incoherent Updates

The worst part about taking off time from work? Coming back to work and getting to spend more than half the day fixing mistakes that were made when you were gone. The best part? Not having to be at work.

Yesterday I finally put a couch into my apartment. My living room now looks considerably smaller, but it still looks too bare. I'll have to get a smaller couch too, and maybe a coffee table or something to fill up the vast emptiness in the middle. I also acquired a tv that's much larger than the one I wasn't even using. AND I neatly ran the wires for my rear speakers up the wall and across the ceiling – no more tripping on speaker wires.

The blog is.. bloggy. I'm going to have to tweak the layout a bit, because there's certain things that I never really completed, and every time I look at it it just feels unfinished. I re-added the blogrush widget over on the right side. They've made quite a few changes, and cleaned things up, so I figured I'd give it another shot. It has brought in a little bit of traffic over the last few days, so I'm going to consider it successful. It'll stay for now. Yesterday I also upgraded wordpress to the latest version.. now I can tag posts in addition to just categorizing them – I'm not sure how that looks, but I guess I'm about to find out.

Lolcats tomorrow.. maybe some real content next week? 😛
