I concede the week.

Now just leave me the f*ck alone, okay?

...the letter F -- for frustration...

...and the number 45 -- because I have 45 minutes before I can get the frak out of here.

ETA: ...and also the letter I -- for the idiots who tell their bosses one story, and then leave behind e-mail evidence to the contrary...

...I know I use that one a lot, but when you have weeks -- sometimes a month -- between postings, it seems appropriate. =)

Click for update )

Anyway... that's the news for now. As you can see, a lot going on. Things are beginning to settle in, but it's going to take longer than I thought. ::sigh:: As much as I love change, I really hate the upheaval sometimes.

ETA: For the record )

...but moving and without internet. Computers will be at the house tonight; the nice cable man will be there tomorrow morning. If all goes well, I'll be back up and running by noon tomorrow.

For the HW... )

Eight random observations... )

It seems odd to end on 8, but I really can't think of anything else. Maybe I'll put a note here that the list is subject to editing as the day progresses. =)

Well, it's about that time. I have about two hours left on my day, and then I'm freeeeeee! For a few days, at least. Fighting off the monster of all headaches but, thankfully, it's not a migraine. I can't afford one of those to knock me down right now. I still have to pack!

Short notes:

  • Chris Judge has cancelled at DragonCon. Who's coming in his place? Torri Higginson. Which, while this may not be terribly exciting for some of you ( ::pokes Alli:: ), I think it's pretty cool. And Rachel Luttrell will be there. Meta, anyone?

  • The BSG Colonial Day Party has been moved to Friday night, 10:30 in Regency V. Sucks that it's Friday night, but at least we're getting there Thursday.

  • Not that anyone really cares, but the BDUs are somewhat tight across the hips. Soooo going on a diet when I get home. And exercising. Seriously. Really. I mean it this time. Don't try to stop me...

  • The first of the BSG Webisodes will apparently air 5 September. They will then appear every Tues/Thursday until 6 October. [Nod to the gals over at [ profile] adama_roslin.] There's some gnashing of teeth regarding the UK delay and the possibly-not-recordable nature of the eps...but I never underestimate the creativity of fans in sharing the fun. =)

  • After this week, if I never see another PowerPoint slide, it will be too soon. Grr.

  • And, lastly, dinner with Mom and Baby Brother tomorrow night. Definitely looking forward to that. Well, that, and finally delivering the Tevas I bought my brother like a month ago. =)

  • And now... time to go back to those @#$% PowerPoint slides. ::sigh::

    Where's Doom 3 when you really need it?

    The. Suit.

    Been looking for like two years now, and I. Just. Found. THE. Suit.


    Must. Have.

    Will. Have.

    ::goes digging for Visa card::

    ETA: Alas, I lost the auction in the final 12 seconds. It went for $368.

    For those interested, the suit is from the Armani Collezioni, navy blue pin stripe pant and jacket, rayon/wool mix. Not sure of the year, though it was used for the 2004 - 2005 BSG season, so I'd guess at least the 2004 collection.

    And, if anyone out there does find it in a size 10, please let me know. Or if anyone has any ideas on how to find another one...

    Just bought tickets to see Geraint Wyn Davies as Richard III at the Shakespeare February. Planning ahead much? Hee!

    London flight diverted to Logan after on-board fight; security threat.

    Apparently a woman was experiencing a bout with "claustrophobia" and had a "confrontation" with the aircrew/flight crew. The "prohibited items" are listed in other sources as matches, a screwdriver, and Vaseline. So my question is this: Did she plan on her little attack of claustrophobia? Because I know I carry matches, screwdrivers, and Vaseline in my carry-on luggage simply all the time. (/sarcasm)

    I think this chick should have to pay for the jet fuel and the fighter pilots' time spent in escort. Especially if she turns out to be just another nutcase.

    Left to purchase for DragonCon:

  • Ribbons (RMN costume)

  • Stars (hyper-capable command) (RMN costume)

  • Corframs (RMN costume)

  • Items to exchange/return/purchase before DragonCon:

  • Urban digital camo 4-pkt shirt (ordered a med/reg, and it was waaaay too big)(BSG costume)

  • Okay, so I haven't exchanged yet. I haven't heard from the surplus people I bought it from, either. Grrr.

    Days till DragonCon: 16 15

    ...from National Review Online.

    "The Brink of Madness
    A familiar place."
    By Victor Davis Hanson

    An interesting comparison between our current international situation, and the situation as it existed prior to WWII...and some criticisms about cultural relativism.

    ETA: And a reading recommendation, on similar topics mentioned in the article: Natural Right and History by Leo Strauss. Also, War: Ends and Means by Angelo Codevilla and Paul Seabury. The Strauss is a bit heavy, but the Codevilla-Seabury book is very readable.

    This is what happens when the gray hairs give me a boring job to do repeatedly and too often.

    Tools of the evil empire, huh? Well, I am a Republican...

    Forever Knight Season 3 DVDs will be available 3 October 2006, for those of you who didn't know already and are interested. =)

    ::heads off back to writing bios::

    Yup. Still alive. Bored to death, but still alive. Had a great weekend with Mom, Step-Dad, and Baby Brother. Didn't do a whole lot, but still had a good time. Was nice to visit. Was also nice to be able to pay for a few things for a change instead of being the free-loading kid...especially since the parentals just had to put four tires on their Jeep. ($$$!)

    In other news, DH gets home tomorrow evening, and I'm definitely looking forward to it. The next time someone gets a bright idea to send him somewhere for a month, I'm so booking a ticket, at least for a weekend trip. This just sucked. The good news is that he got per diem and worked lotsa hours. The result? A few days off and a few extra dollars. =)

    Slow day at work today. Spent some time working on a bio for a Command NPC and, ironically, who I think would by my PC on Nessa's sim. True, I haven't even visited the sim yet, but eh, I'll take the inspiration when it comes. Nessa? I'll probably be dropping a line to see about something as far as positions go. I've seen the list, but the background I came up with on this guy might lend itself to a couple of different areas. Just wanted to see how you feel about that...but I need to finish fleshing him out first. I'll drop a line when I've about got him written up.

    Anyway, that's it for now. More later.
