Hiya Kids:


For the sake of my remaining 12 readers who are now contemplating leaving this blog in the dust, I thought it prudent to post and say hello.

Things have been hella busy. I've pretty much forgotten how to blog, and I haven't been reading anybody else's (the Google Reader count for unread posts from my blogroll at left is something like 220).
I'm in Seattle and have been for the last week. Yesterday was the culmination of a major work project/event which had been progressively taking up more and more of my time. And I'm exhausted - instead of celebrating the success of the event, I attended a work reception where I didn't eat or drink, and my evening ended with me laying on my hotel bed at midnight, enjoying a dinner of M&Ms and potato chips (seriously).
But now that it's done, things will slow down. Heading back to Chicago next Tuesday, so although it has been busy it is awesome spending two weeks in the Pacific Northwest. Fresh air, good friends and all that bullshit. Hopefully no pig statue riding this time, though.*

Two of my best friends in the world had their wedding reception last weekend in Portland. Enough material there to write a dozen posts about how awesome it was. And I purchased a new suit for it on a whim. I am a bit of a dandy.

I did well during Finals week last week. Not great, but good. Considering how little time I had to devote to studying and preparing presentations and papers, I am content.

Awright, gotta go into another debriefing meeting. Then tomorrow I'll be driving down to Portland (again) for a long weekend. Of the last four weekends, three of them have been/will be spent down there, which is Proper.


* Although I can really never rule that possibility out, especially since tonight I'm hanging with ReckenRoll who got me into that kind of trouble in the first place.

Proper. The weather in Portland just changed from February to July, like three hours ago. It is unbelieveably beautiful. You are going to have one boss weekend.

At least forgetting how to blog isn't as bad as forgetting how to read. Then you'd really be hosed.

Chicago says it misses you.

Damn, sounds like fun, hard work all thrown together. No blame for not posting with what you were doing.

JUSTIN said...

Debriefing meeting, eh? So thats what the kids are calling it these days...

The longer you don't blog the harder it is to come back. I just usually hit 'mark all as read' in my Google reader and start fresh. I could probably handle Doritos as a meal. Regular chips are just too salty.

Congrats on the project. It's funny how life can hold you back from the things that you enjoy. Enjoy your time out here on our end of the country. I look forward to the wedding posts. Take care.

Look at you Mr. Busy (okay I'm a geek for typing that out)(and an even bigger geek for not erasing it and pretending it never happened)!

Thanks for the update hottie. I'm glad that your finals went well!!

Sadcakes (Copyright ReckenRoll) that I won't see you this weekend. Have a GREAT time and enjoy the weather! Love ya!

I expect nothing less than tales of debauchery upon your return.

ReckenRoll said...

The pig misses you already.

Seriously.

The pig might miss you but it was great seeing you last night. Hard work/no life/certainly no social life and a starvation/junk food diet suits you!

When you are done with finals, we need to go cocktailing.

kathy said...
