The first lines of my first post of the month for 2013 follow:

  • And here we are in 2013. :)
  • [livejournal.com profile] daisy_knotwise bought me a new stocking cap for my trips to the Loop this week.
  • Made it to San Jose in good time.
  • So it was back to work today, without the benefit of having taken a whole bunch of Benadryl to, well, "improve" is not the right word for what Benadryl does for analytical work. :)
  • Julie is five years old today.
  • The pool opened today.
  • Or at least, our dentist drills.
  • I went to the Cubs game tonight with a friend of mine and watched them lose to the Dodgers 6-4.
  • And that finishes laying out the main text for [livejournal.com profile] jimhines's book, The Goblin Master's Grimoire.
  • Well, four, actually.
  • The set of Java classes that I'm working on are not yet complete, but I was able to read a chunk of the old binary file format successfully today.
  • Chambanacon was great fun.

    I'm waiting for stuff here at work, catching up on LJ responses, answering e-mails and IMs (many work-related), and answering silly quizzes. Apparently, I passed this one. :)

    And this version, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] catalana, slightly retitled:

    If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want -- good or bad. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

    Note: I regard all of this as optional. So if you choose not to post something, that's cool. Or if you don't want to do it in your journal, that's cool too. But it looks like a fun way to distract myself while packing a zillion boxes waiting to find out what happens to my car next.

    Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] tarkrai who I think can't quite match this.
    Below are the 259 songs which have been nominated for a Pegasus Award.

    If you have heard the song put it in Italics.
    If you have sung along to it in public (or at least the chorus) put it in Underline.
    If you have sung it (in public, all the words, with people looking at you) put it in Bold

    Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maverick_weirdo for starting this. If you want to check the lyrics of many of these songs out, check out the Pegasus Nominated Songs page.
    And away we go... )

    And would this be a great surprise if you looked behind the cut? Although I'll note that -- as usual -- some of the questions weren't subject to really simple answers.
