Weekend!

So when I stepped out to get something to eat, it was the big fluffy snowflakes like in commercials for peppermint lattes. When I went back outside after the meal, it was the sideways snow like in commercials for windshield wipers.

So now I’m back in the hotel room in my fuzzies thinking about how I’m about two weeks from going home where, I’m told, it’s not snowing. Well, not yet. Saturday.

Anyway, this weekend, I’m looking forward to bundling up in a blanket and just riding the weekend out with the occasional excursion for a grilled sandwich of some kind. I’ve discovered that I can hook up Netflix to the television. So far, it’s a wasteland as far as movies are concerned but it has Quantum Leap and all kinds of cartoon shows that I’ve been intending to catch up on (dude! Batman Beyond had *THREE* seasons???) and so I’m probably going to just spend the weekend In Bed.

So… what’s on your docket?

Please do be so kind as to share this post.

  1. I am making a transition from one type of ecigarette to another ecigarette (I have no idea how long I have been tobacco-free, which is an awesome sign). The new kit is set to arrive tomorrow. So that’s going to take up some of my weekend.

    Clancy has me reading a book on baby sleep, and I’m trying to make some more progress on that.

    New computer parts arrive tomorrow for the last leg of the new project. Last leg. No more computer-building. In fact, I’ve decided to decommission two of my machines. After I spent untold hours getting them up and running I had to ask myself “What exactly do I expect to do with a computer with a single-core processor?”

    And this house. Laurdy laurdy (no religion), I’ve got to do something about this house.

  2. Building a website for the Colorado Division of the US Fencing Association, something I’ve been putting off for two months.

    Still looking for things that I can do reasonably well on a 7″ tablet. Haven’t found what I consider a reliable and quick text input method yet, but haven’t tried a Bluetooth keyboard (one is on the way from Amazon). Running a stylus around the soft keyboard shows some promise, but is clearly a skill that requires more training on my part. For the record, FBreader is an outstanding e-book reader; pages consistently look the way I want them to look.

    This was posted from the tablet and was painful.

  3. I spent the New Year’s break sequestered in the home office working on rebuilding my website (http://www.mikedwyerwrites.com/) because I switched back to WordPress and I had to reteach myself CSS coding. Finished last night and I am pretty happy with the results. I promised the wife no more stuff like this for at least 1-year so hopefully I can stop tinkering with it, though there are so many fun plugins it is hard to leave it alone.

    Taking a break from hunting to catch up on neglected chores and re-fortify myself for the last 3 weeks of the season where we usually pull doubles every weekend and generally try to load up the freezer with as much wild game as possible. Lots of interesting recipes to try when it is all over.

    I will probably see a movie at some point. Saw Saving Mr.Banks the other day and it was good but I need a guy flick. maybe 47 Ronin.

  4. I dropped my tablet yesterday and shattered the glass. I will need to venture out of my exurb and go to a more affluent exurb closer to the big city to get it repaired and/or replaced. (Why did you drop your tablet, Burt? That wasn’t very smart of you, was it? You should be more careful with your things.) That will be followed up by taking my lovely wife out to a nice lunch and a bit of shopping for her.

    Sunday I’ll attend my secular group meeting for the first time since August; I don’t usually go during the fall and winter months because I’m watching football and I often skip in the off-season because a cadre of people who show up are just looking for an audience to say awful things about religious people, a subject for which I have no appetite. But my Packers play in the evening so I’ll have the morning free to see if the leaders of the group have been able to make good on their efforts to squelch the anti-theism ranting and get people to talk about something interesting. And then in the evening we’ll see if the Russian Defense Strategy works against San Francisco.

  5. Recovering from the holidays – we had a very nice visit with our families, and a pleasant new year’s eve, and an annoying sinus cold, and now it is time to finally unpack, get the house into something like order, and take some baths.
