Been kinda dead 'round here
« on: July 21, 2013, 09:03:54 PM »
Well, it's been tumbleweeds around here.  I'm checking in - how is everyone?  I've been crazy busy programming on Quest For Infamy, and trying to enjoy my summer when I can.  Got to do some camping around the 4th.

How is everyone else?

I took my 2-year-old camping for the first time about a month ago, just me and him. He absolutely loved it and constantly asks when we're going again. Helped my sister-in-law move to a new apartment this week and helped some friends down the road dig a well last week.

Other than that, programming til my eyes bleed.

That's adorable Weldon!

Working working working here! After getting my laptop back (after daily BSODs), it's been all Moebius, Face Noir, Cognition. Plus wedding planning. This coming weekend my fiancÚ's mom and sister are coming up, and we're doing the bachelor/bachelorette parties and the bridal shower.

I'm like this ~> :bomb: :'(

I'm moving at the end of the month, my current landlord is very displeased. ::)

Meanwhile, after returning from a two week stay in the States, I attended an outdoors Capoeira roda in Galway... I left my "stuff" with the rest of the group's stuff (near the roda, mind you)... amongst my stuff was jeans with wallet, keys, and watch in the pockets... someone stole them while we were playing Capoeira. :( >:(

Have referee comments back from first paper, have more work dumped on me to do that, have two other projects to finish. (But at least I just had a little positive turn on one of those today... yay for tiny victories, I guess. :S)


So, yeah, I am S T R E S S E D and super busy. :-\

Hey Katie, you may have posted it somewhere, but when is the wedding? :)

Let's see, we bought a house, moved in at the beginning of June, FINALLY unpacked the last boxes this last weekend (of course, some of those boxes ended up in the attic), and then generally being a housewife, which I have LOVED! Currently cross-stitching a baby blanket for one of my best friends who is having a little one :)

But I do try to check in every once in a while!

Cat! Great to see you here :) Congrats on unpacking that quickly. I'm terrible at that (pushes boxes from the May move out of sight).

It's on October 5th :)

Oh hell no. I'm not changing my username :) I wouldn't want to bother, for one--I have the same username pretty much everywhere. And professionally, I'm going to stick to using my maiden name anyways.

What have I been doing the past little while, you ask? I've just been in my room, meditating, pondering...

I was going to assume from the picture that you were playing Okami.

One day before mine! :D

(There's also a guy at my work who just happens to also be getting married that same weekend, at the same venue, and then going to the same country via the same company (albeit different resorts) for honeymoon the same week as we are.) XD

Between the wedding stuff, buying a house, and working, we've been keeping busy :)

Neat! and congrats:)

Our wedding is not only on the same day as parents anniversary, but we're going to be in the exact same reception hall as well. Good weekend for weddings!

I was in Europe for a month visiting a friend in Germany and working on a farm in Northern Italy through a program called WOOF. Before that, I was back in California in Fresno visiting friends and also went camping in Golden Gate recreation area north of san Francisco bridge and hiked to the top of mount tam. AWESOME Summer. On the game side, the new tomb raider is amazing.
