The audicity of hiatus

What a hiatus it has been.  A dozen days gone by since my last effort to write something down, and what have I got to show for it?  A saucerful of surprises.

Twelve days ago, I accepted a new job, which means doubling my workload at the liberry during my final fortnight as Technology Manager.  Many projects which I’d put off for future days were scrapped, and I’m in the midst of trying to realize a very select few of them before my time runs out.

Eleven days ago, I assembled a new computer, which you’ll read about later.  This makes writing much easier than it was with the moribund Hrothgar.

Ten days ago, I was dog-sitting in 3 houses, and was able to cut it down to two houses for the rest of the week.  I haven’t slept in my own bed since then.

Nine days ago, I saw an excellent play directed by a talented friend of mine.  While not really comparable to the works of Shakespeare, It had more jazz & dancing girls than King Richard III and Macbeth put together.

Eight days ago, I watched all six Star Wars movies consecutively.  They were thrilling.

Seven days ago, I spent my whole Sunday working at the Liberry and probing the vagaries of Virtual PC 2007. Blegh.

Six days ago, I met with my new doctor and was told to eat more salt.

Five days ago, I started doing interviews for my job at the Liberry.  Conducting an interview is almost as bad as being interviewed.

Four days ago, I held a Uromastyx for the first time.  By far, the cutest reptile I’ve ever seen.

Three days ago, I went to a bar after work.  I felt very out of place, maybe because I wasn’t imbibing pitchers of Bud Light and trying to get laid.

Two days ago, I went to a pool party in honor of a 21st birthday.  It was all fun and games until Ape hit me over the head with a (hard) plastic surfboard.  The bleeding stopped, but the headaches won’t….

One day ago, I got really, really tired of dogsitting.  I must’ve been bitten by 28 different mosquitos while we were on a walk.

Today, Ape and I had delicious cucina Italiana and deutches Bier with my parents.  So much of it that afterwards, I felt like I’d swallowed a canteloupe.

Tomorrow, I leave the Liberry.
