Twitter is currently deaded, and I had some time to make an update, and realized that WOW, I've been reading LJ, but not really updating it.Many Halloween themed events, Universal on Sunday, and a few other haunted houses/mazes throughout the month
Yeah yeah, I always say that. I post about not posting and then go back to not posting.
Been working lots. Seriously. Lots. I don't even know where September went.
Been buying too many books.
At least I'm getting some reading done and have a reading list.
Been to some cool Halloweeen stuff. Knotts was really fun, not busy at all, no lines for anything. First Sunday of Knots FTMFW!
SoCon (LARP convention in Ontario) was fun. Almost lost a character. Caught up with some people I haven't seen in a while.
Saw The Invention of Lying, we really got a kick out of that. Fun little film, different and clever.
Excited about upcoming events:
Wedding to attend on Halloween (still trying to figure out what to wear)
Surprise day off Monday (forgot there was a holiday coming up that my company gets off, Columbus day)
Disneyland on Columbus Day
Got week of Christmas off, and still have some planning pending for that week but it looks to be eventful.
Okay, back to work. Today is a going away lunch for a couple people who are leaving the company tomorrow, and lunch is zooming up quickly.
Hello LJ land!
It's been a while.
As I sat here at work, eating one of my dark chocolates from my well visited candy basket on my desk, realizing that a half hour isn't much time for accomplishing any new tasks, but I have not updated LJ for a while aside from writer's block subjects, so here I am. :) Been reading, but not writing so much these days.
Been a weird week. A great guy and friend who worked for my company since 2000 passed away over the weekend, and work has been moving in a very different pace this week due to that. Overall energy here has been way off this week, and understandably so. Funeral is noon on Friday, and I'm not sure if I will go or not. I'd kinda like to. Logistically it would be difficult, out in Glendale, I already have guys in my group out that day, and this is the 8th person that I've known in the past 2 years who has passed away, so I'm just not sure I'm up for another funeral. He was only 31.
In other news, been working lots. Been trying to organize my stuff. I have way too much stuff. I have made a few attempts to purge stuff, even brought my sis over to help, so little by little I'm making progress but still, it's a lot of stuff that has taken over my place.
Gaming: Usual Larps continue, been fun. Finished my D&D campaign not too long ago. Planning on starting Adventure! soon, but haven't even looked at the book yet.
Currently reading William Shatner's autobiography. Good stuff. Often funny, and very heartfelt. Next is probably going to be the series of new Star Trek novels that Erik's blown through and has really enjoyed. My reading list has grown, and I hadn't been reading for a while, but am getting back into reading regularly now. It helps when I put the blackberry away while riding the bus. :)
Am currently looking for a desktop computer to be a suitable replacement for mine which is near deaded, life only being prolonged by avoiding use unless needed. Also looking at netbooks, for handy running around use.
Also, been looking at getting a unicycle and learning how to ride it. Have decided that it would be a nifty hobby to take up, would take some exercise and work to learn, build some skills, and would be easy to take with me onto a bus if needed. Anyone know of a 24" unicycle needing a good home, let me know. :)
Alrighty, ready to pack it up and head on out. Talk to ya folks later!
