wombat

another week in search mode

Unusually energetic this morning - fired off the paperwork to the Commonwealth and spent most of the morning firing off resumes in several directions. Hopefully one of them will land on someone's desk and find them in a good mood!

The chili improved after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days, but isn't quite there yet. I suspect the arbol peppers just aren't as hot as the serrano peppers I'm used to using. The turkey has been moved to the fridge and will probably wind up getting roasted a day early, but we'll see how things go. Also baked the acorn squash and nuked a couple of potatoes, because they go well with chili. :)

Papers arrived for the substitute job at Quantico; I think I'll call down and see if Wednesday morning is good for them. If not, I guess it'll be next week.

Not a good day playing internet spaceships. Got a mining barge (and its expensive strip mining modules) blown up under me, and a salvaging osprey likewise. So I was actually down a few million isk by the time I quit the game. :(

Still plodding through Baseball Between the Numbers: Why Everything You Know About the Game Is Wrong, but am also rereading Ronald Glasser's 365 Days and S. M. Stirling's The Peshawar Lancers.
Happy

icing on the cake

Facebook saved me three dollars today, thanks to bam2 who posted a link to one of Amazon.com's Black Friday specials. I am now the proud owner of tracks by The Proclaimers, Sir Mix-a-Lot, and Young MC. These may actually find their way onto the same mix CD, because that's how I roll.

wombat

another Trainor loose in the world

My niece Heather had her baby last Wednesday by C-section. Great-niece Jordan was late and big - 9 pounds- which is typical for our lot, and according to her grandpa is a sound sleeper, which is a Good Thing. I didn't find out from him until today because he sent the word out Sunday to my AOL address, which I check about once a month on average. Welp.
