Don't call it a comeback, I've been lurking for years

It's been a while. Not lingering long. Been married for 3 and a half years to a beautiful woman and I have 2 wonderful kids. Felt inclined to post this as a bookend to the bitter late teens- early twenties Brandon. It got better, man.

People should get together and watch Jeopardy. This being decided after a gem of a Greek myth reference went unnoticed for 18 hours. Come on, people!

Rain is here and I'm feeling fine

Halloween is one of those days I never seem to prepare for. So it wasn't a big surprise people already had plans or were unable to come. So Sylvia and I bought gobs of candy and waited to see if any children would take the walk up our foreboding and treacherous stairs. Thankfully, we got some brave kids. And Isaac (thanks Isaac!)came over and made a Jack o'Lantern for the front steps that wouldn't stay lit for anything.

All in all, it was an OK if mildly depressing start to the evening. Still, would have been smart to plan more than a couple weeks ahead. Though, with the distances involved, I suppose that there's a way to optimally pick a time in advance to make sure people can clear their schedules. Or enough time to let us know that they can't make it.

Anyway, the in-laws came over today. Long day of watching Red Dragon with Al while Sylvia and Bertie worked and made us dinner. And we wrapped it all up with Doctor Who Season 3 Christmas Special. A good Saturday all around.

Who thought that using a container that is 5 x 7 inches to hold 2 items that are less than 1 inch in size was a good idea?

When it comes to most circles, I tend to be the tech guy. Just last night, I fixed an issue with an HDTV that allowed the owner, who were contemplating returning the set, to experience the full HD glory they had paid for. This, coupled with the fact that I consume all this tech info on a daily basis, is making me consider trying like hell to get into the technology news arena. Nothing too complex. Maybe just starting a blog and posting the stuff I answer on a weekly basis.

If there are any tech questions that you've been wondering, please toss them my way. I need the mental exercise.

Fall back can't get here fast enough.

Been back for a couple weeks and it's been odd. Moving in has definitely made me feel more at home, but I can't help but feel like things have been a bit stagnant. My fault entirely though. I've been kind of stuck with the work routine running the rest of my schedule. Hopefully, the Rats board meeting will shake things up enough that I snap out of it.

After the awfulness of the start to yesterday, today has shaped up to be marginally better, if more hectic. I woke up late and rushed out the door to work, where I found it really didn't matter if I was late (especially considering that my hours are technically 8:30-5:30).

So I sat around until Rhee-ly (his last name with a suffix) annoying guy came over asking about a Final Cut Pro install. For those of you that don't know, Final Cut Pro is a professional grade video editing suite for Macs. It is incredibly expensive and I could easily spend half a month's paycheck for it. But what I found out today is that it is massive. This thing is 8 DVDs worth of installations. DVDs! Let's put it this way: I started the install a little after 10. I didn't finish it until 11:45. I stayed there babysitting it for over an hour and a half. And not so much as a thank you afterwards. Prick.

Anyhow, after work, I get to jam on down to Vallejo for a night of board meetings. First off, the Darkroom meeting (which I am a member of, surprising to me) is happening at 6. Then, we have the Rats in the Alley meeting immediately after that. And considering that there seems to be some overlap, we might be starting even later than I think. And to top it all off, I get to play secretary at the Rats meeting tonight. Which I suck at, as I'm sure you can tell from my writing here.

I need a nap.
