Tonight, after work, I'm leaving to go to San Antonio to help my
friend George move into his first house. Quite an honor, and I'll be
there all weekend.

I'm a little worried I don't have enough forward movement in my life.
Also that I might not be doing everything I can to get out and

Another Rainy Day

Sick of so much rain. How it pours, day after day, the rap tap tapping
that is so beautiful on the first evening becomes incessant by the
third. Driving through it every day, the roads flooded, everything
wet, my feet damp when I step out into a puddle near every curb in
order to get to the places where I need to be. It rains, simply, too

I finished Fallout 3 last night, it has been a wonderful experience,
that I enjoyed fully from beginning to end, and I intend to play
through it again, perhaps a little smarter this time.

Looks like Chris fell through and decided not to hang out with me last
night. Oh well, c'est la vie.

I need to read. I need to make my game. I need to draw. I need to
express myself. I am feeling a bit high strung as of late. Maybe my
trip to San Antonio will help me relax.

A Long Weekend

It's been a long weekend, I don't know if I've mentioned it here, but
I have been doing a lot of work at Chefs 2b and at my day job. It has
gotten so that most weeks, now, I work 7 days a week. This week, I
didn't have any work to do on sunday, but I did have one party early
on Saturday. Late saturday evening, I went over to Tim and Jamie's
house for pizza and Rock Band. It was a very calm, very nice evening
that I enjoyed quite a bit.

I got tired earlier than usual, and I went home at 11, instead of at
12 or 1. Maybe I'm getting older. Who knows? I think not, since after
I got home, I was still up till 2 reading and enjoying myself, but it
was while lying down and relaxing with Peppers Amadeus Bond, who did
not seem at all interested in sitting still or relaxing, as he tore up
and terrorized my bedroom.

I had been planning for Sunday all week, though I forgot to do some of
my plans. I forgot that I had planned to have an early dinner with my
father at 5 pm, and I slept all morning and afternoon through it.
After that I went to pick up Zac and his girlfriend Lucy. They were in
town playing orchestra concerts at schools around the houston area. I
wish I weren't working during all of their concert times. C'est la

We ate italian, joined by Matt, Justin, and his wife Cymeron. Was an
enjoyable dinner. Afterward, I took Zac and Lucy to my home and let
her try my home-made wines and ales, and let them both browse my
library of books, and let Zac borrow Invisible Monsters, by Chuck

Then, on monday, I had to go into work an hour early. The early
mornings are not very good for me. I got to work and did the weekend
samples, and then I watched Baby Mama, and Get Smart during work. Both
of these movies were superbly amusing, and I laughed quite a bit,
though I expected both to be sub-par. In the evening I took Zac and
Lucy to a music store which opened just for us and then to our little
tea shop in downtown houston. How I enjoyed the wonderful teas on this
trip, it was quite satisfying and relaxing as always. It is sad that I
cannot visit there more often.

I fell asleep early, though, when I got home, with my contacts in,
leading to an unpleasant awakening and realization that I had not set
my alarm clock. It's life, it happens. We'll see how today goes.

At work today, Peter came out to play. I think this is Peter v3.o The
original must certainly be dead. He was out to play long enough for me
to take a picture of him hunting the mouse pointer, then, to email it
to my computer and take a picture of him hunting the mouse pointer on
top of a picture of him hunting the mouse pointer. And then he stayed
out another 30 minutes to an hour, stalking the mouse pointer.

Another Weekend Gone

I had a really good wine this weekend. I'll have to post the name of
it when I get home, but I enjoyed it a lot. It was given to me as a
tip by a family who threw a birthday party for their daughter on
saturday. Only 3 kids came to the party, I felt a little bad that they
tipped so nice and so few were there to enjoy the fun.

5 parties this weekend. I was so worn out that I didn't do anything
else on saturday or sunday. On Friday, I had a really solid Halloween
hanging out with Tim, Jamie, and Russell. Home-made chili for the win.
We also played rock band, watched scary movies, and played a board
game. Arkham Horror. It's a very rich, imaginative, and complex game,
one of my all time favorites.

HOpe everyone else had a happy halloween.
