Tuesday Bullets

  • Laura and I attended the October gathering of the Cleveland-area NaNoWriMo group Thursday evening. This is the first of two meetings to ramp-up for November, when we’ll both be cranking out 50,000 words. There were about twenty people in attendance, including Chris “Codeshaman” Miller (Unquiet Desperation, Podiobooks), Blob and Yotto.
  • Laura and I put the border up in the baby’s room Saturday afternoon. The room (which we painted blue immediately after we moved into the house) is going to be a combination nursery/guest bedroom, so long as our guests don’t mind sleeping amidst the pattern of fluffy clouds, smiling suns and moons.
  • I did not watch either of the Living Dead movies that premiered on the SciFi Channel Saturday night. I just wasn’t in the mood for zombie movies.
  • I didn’t manage to wrap up Splinter Cell, either. Sam Fisher’s assault on the Georgian Presidential palace goes well right up until he hops on that blasted elevator; then everything goes straight to hell.
  • Laura’s father had quadruple-bypass surgery on Wednesday and is doing quite well. We visited him at the Cleveland Clinic Sunday afternoon. He’s being released today, which is surprising, as he was originally slated to stay in the hospital for no less than eleven days.
  • Laura made soup for dinner last night. It was very similar to the Tuscana soup they serve over at The Olive Garden. Very, very tasty. I loves me some Italian sausage.
  • I’m working on a new, 3-column layout for the main page. I’d link to a preview, but I managed to completely hose the element positioning while experimenting earlier today. I plan on adding a lot of stuff to the sidebar(s) in the near future. The Blogroll is active as of this morning on the current layout.

  1. What the hell is a blogroll?

    You should know; you’re on it!

    “Blogroll” is the term used to for a list of blogs. Specifically, it is a list of blogs that I read on a regular basis.

  2. Oh, bullets, not Ballets. Almost had me there.

    So you’ve got something against ballet, now? Listen, pal, if I want to pirouette, I’m gonna pirouette!

    Glad to hear the in-law is recovering well.

    Yeah, he actually came through the surgery better than the doctors expected. He was originally schedule for a triple-bypass, but the doctor decided to do a four-banger once he was in there. He was released yesterday and Laura was at her parents’ house for a while. She’s going back today while my mother-in-law is at work. I may swing by myself after work.

  3. Yeah, he actually came through the surgery better than the doctors expected.

    Excellent! Does he still have his motorcycle? If ‘yes’, does it look like he will continue to ride? I hope so! He was an excellent biker tour guide when I came up last year! He needs to be ready for any future rides I may be taking up in that area! Plz tell his I sez ‘yo’.

  4. So you’ve got something against ballet, now? Listen, pal, if I want to pirouette, I’m gonna pirouette!

    Deal.

    You put on the tights, powder-puff blue tu-tu and ballet slippers. Then pirouette away. Even better, you can do some splits. I’ll lend assistance in creating a digital record of the event.

    No splits, no deal.

    BTW, either I’ve never seen good ballet or it’s overrated. I’m suspecting the latter.

  5. blogroll……I that more like a cabbage roll? or a nut roll?

    Yah! Or maybe ‘Tootsie Roll’, being as we’re talking about ballet, an’ all.

  6. So you’ve got something against ballet, now? Listen, pal, if I want to pirouette, I’m gonna pirouette!

    A sly shift from ‘bullets’ to ‘ballet’ to beef about pirouette. Heh. Why is that funny to me?

    BTW: KJToo dude – we’re not related anymore. Your father-in-law is cool. He’s into motorcycles.

    Maybe you’ve been out in the sun too long? Anyhow, we all about subtlety here.

  8. Does he still have his motorcycle?

    He certainly does. I haven’t heard of any plans to get rid of it, so I’m sure he’ll be back in the saddle as soon as is humanly possible. It is something that he truly enjoys, so I really hope he is able to ride again come spring.

    BTW: KJToo dude – we’re not related anymore. Your father-in-law is cool. He’s into motorcycles.

    I understand that my coolness is in question due to my lack of interest in motorcycles, but are you now related to my father-in-law instead of me? How does that work?

  9. No splits, no deal.

    No deal, then. If I do the splits, it’s going to be a horrible, unfortunate accident, and the resultant shriek will render all dogs in a fifty mile radius stone deaf, not to mention all the broken windows.

    SPLITS! SPLITS! SPLITS!

  11. blogroll……I that more like a cabbage roll? or a nut roll?

    It could be argued that the creators of some blogs on the roll are nuts, I suppose.
