Maelstrom

January 12, 2012

This has been one crazy week. First there was the big project, which finally finished. Then remember when I went to New York to play a game? Well they called me back today. I’m not allowed to talk about it online. But holy Toledo, that was unexpected. So I’m apparently heading to LA in a few weeks.

Lest I think my karma’s been too good this year, my buzzer thumb currently doesn’t bend. I’m going to have to practice as a lefty.

I had dinner tonight with the old friend I wrote about yesterday. It was fantastic to see her -= it’s been at least 10 years, but it was nothing. We had a lot to catch up on, but we could have talked longer if we didn’t both have work to do in the morning.

In other good things, I got a very nice email from one of the people I worked very closely with on the project thanking me for my work and another one from my boss thanking me a little more tangibly by giving me a half a day off. In the general scheme of the extra hours I’ve put in, it’s nothing. But it is much appreciated nonetheless. And now, I think, it is time to pack my clothes and clean the apartment. There have been so many things going on that I almost forgot I’m headed home tomorrow. If the karma holds, that is. There’s a snowstorm between here and there that I have to get through. On the plus side, delays will mean more time to practice saying things in the form of a question.

    How fun! Start boning up on current crap tv and make Mr. Spy tutor you in sports. You’re well rounded in the rest I’d bet.

    Yay! Both for the game and also for your boss valuing your time. This is a good time of year to get out of Chicago for LA, too.
