Gosh, sorry 'bout that, y'all. I'm training my replacement at work, and so I rarely have a free moment at the computer. Quick rehash of the last five days:
Saturday -- quiet. Did a bunch of cleaning and watching Star Trek. Finished Leaving Las Vegas, a very good novel about a prostitute and a drunk. Among other thing.
Sunday -- David got back from the Bahamas around lunchtime. He almost drowned there (he insists it wasn't that serious, but having both your main oxygen and your backup fail at 70 feet below sounds serious to me), but otherwise had a great time. Very nice to have him back. Dinner with him and Larry at my place.
Monday -- Busy busy at the office and a big foofaraw on my mailing list (on whether we should have a web page -- privacy/publication concerns versus advertising, etc.) Resolved by Tuesday, but some stress all around. Brian was a trooper, as always, in helping to damp the flames. Made the yummy Philipino chicken dish one of you sent me. From memory, my modified verson: Marinate 1 breast of chicken, sliced, 1 medium onion sliced, and two plum tomatoes, sliced in 5 T soy sauce and 1 T vinegar with 10 whole black peppercorns, 10 minutes.
Bring to boil with 1 chopped potato and 3 chopped carrots. Cover and cook on low 20-25 minutes. Serve over white rice. Simple and delicious.
Tuesday - Crepes at David's, SCA dancing at 7:30. Great fun. Came home and was sick most of the night. Slept 2-3 hours. Not fun. All better now, though.
Which brings us to Wednesday. Today has been busy, but productive, and am swiftly wrapping things up here at the office. My boss keeps looking mournful about my leaving (though my replacement is both nice and competent) -- it's nice to be appreciated. :-)
Will try to be a bit more regular, but this week may be somewhat erratic -- I may not be working in July, and if not, should have lots of time to chat with y'all when I should be working.
