[PUBLIC] Two-Week Update

Well, its been a while since I posted here. In the last two weeks I went to training in Atlanta, spent the majority of my time in Ohio, where the Men Are Real Men and the Internet Is Real Slow. I've made some progress on unpacking in my new place, and discovered the joy that is Jack McDevitt. I renewed my President's Club membership at Continental. I flew into Akron-Canton Airport for the first time. I had dinner with emp42ress. I hung out with witticaster and zapf. I've learned to love VB.NET, although I still need to figure out how to interface WSH with it without resorting to COM objects. I played a few turns of Space Empires V. I indulged my predilection for compiling and organizing data in aforementioned game. I rented and drove a 2008 S40 for the first time. I went to londo's birthday party. I watched The Goonies. I listened to NPR. I wrote a screen scraper for the WoW Armory that update my guild bank's ledger automatically. I played a freshly-opened copy of Race for the Galaxy. I sang the refrain to "I Will Survive" in response to somebody wishing me well (my apologies to all present.) I chatted on IRC. I confirmed that v = sqrt(mG/r). I went out for ice cream on a whim and 2 cars of people followed me. I drove with the top down through the Ted Williams Tunnel for the first time. I began prepping my period Victorian suit for its second deployment. I ate bluefish. I wrote a song about myself to the tune of "We Are The Pirates (Who Don't Do Anything)", but discarded it as silly. I ate at Tai Cha Da with people not of Irish descent, for the first time. I built a new coffee table from Ikea. I played Diamant. I ate at the Sole with ultimatepsi. I negotiated back a planet that had been invaded by seven goons and a keg of cheap beer. I watched the trailer for a student-produced movie. I paid my electric bill. I learned more about who I am, and who I am not (turns out I'm me.) I stayed up late, and I went to bed early, but not on the same night. I took an afternoon nap. I had a marvelous sandwich the name of which I can, regretfully, not remember. I ran. I watched two different episodes of Star Trek Voyager with two different young women (I have not seen either of them since.) And I wrote a a lengthy and somewhat disjointed LJ entry.

But not in that order.

Two cars followed, but only one actually arrived at your destination with you. People really need to be less dependent on GPS. =P

As someone who used VB6 a lot when I was a kid, VB.NET made me cry a bit on the inside. Oh well. Maybe I too will learn to love it someday. *Sigh.*

Sounds like the makings of a good letter ;-) You never ate at Tai Cha Da with me?
