Almost my birthday, Friday

Reading: I picked up The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and it has grabbed me.  I didn’t read as much as I had hoped this week because of administravia and responsibilities that needed doing but this coming week should have more time before bed to do some pre-sleep reading.

Planning: A b-day weekend with my ladyfriend.

Wearing: Jeans and a long-sleeved gray shirt.  Converse has this clothing line and I’m really digging it, which is odd because I rarely notice brand names but the shirts all fit me as if they were tailor-made.

Writing: Unfortunately, other than AP threads, nothing I can talk about just yet.

And you?

  1. Happy Imminent Birthday!

    Reading: Still working on “The Drowned World” by Ballard. Hard to find time to read – need to sit down and finish it up in one go.

    Planning:Family picnic at the airport tonight – eating organic takeout, people-watching, drawing, studying while our daughter plays in the play area. Sounds weird, but it’s actually a lot more relaxing and fun than a restaurant. OK…it’s still weird, but we like it.

    Wearing:Office/outdoor casual, same as usual.

    Drawing:Artists’ mannequin, the 8th Doctor, and Amelie (from the movie of the same name). All using new media/techniques, none quite good enough for Flickr. It’s been too long since I posted – time to lower my standards, or try harder.

  2. Have a great weekend!

    Reading: Just finished a collection of Jay Lake stories, and am amusing myself with snippets of Leo Rosten’s “Hooray for Yiddish!”

    Planning: There’s a long list of pre-defense paperwork to be done. Oy.

    Wearing: Jeans and a long-sleeve t-shirt.

    Writing: Putting the last bit of polish on the dissertation and plotting out the plan for the presentation.

  3. Reading: Just finished volume 2 of Gunnerkrieg Court, and reading <i.Strange Aeons II for Call of Cthulhu. Finished the Tang Dynasty scenario and reading the Ancient Greek one. All come with pregens.

    Planning: Tomorrow, moving most of what’s left at my parents’ house into storage, and returning Sunday to survey the ground. Going to be out by the end of the month, and kind of dropped the ball on dealing with the furniture.

    Wearing: White jeans, sneakers, InterSection t-shirt (1995 WorldCon in Glasgow).

    Writing: Frantic emails making sure all goes well tomorrow, pbem posts.
