update

While suffering writing text for a proposal that was supposed to go out several days ago, some friends called and asked me to come out and see them. As I hadn't seen musicwomyn in a long time I fled from the clutches of MS word and hung out with friends.

I was then briefly mocked for my lack of posting as of late... Which led to this post...

One thing I've noticed about myself is I tend to discount my own life and only feel like posting when talking about "important" things like life, death, taxes, and other vast societal issues.

I never write about:

My girlfriends is really cool and I really like her. (Though currently I'm less than happy with her grad school stealing all of her time, it'd be nice if they left us at least a little bit.)

Although she's busy, she's also one of the bridesmaids in a wedding this weekend off in idyllwild. The fun part is that since the various members of the wedding party got to have their own room for the weekend, we get to spend the weekend with each other, and they're will be at least a few hours which are all ours.

Other fun things is I got a pocket bluetooth gps, and found some software for my cellphone to talk to it. (Not to mention all of the random linux software I played with to test it as well.) (There's a chance this might actually be useful when trying to find wherever we're going this weekend. (whats really cool is the gps app will happily take advantage of my phone's internet connection and download mapquest maps for wherever I happen to be standing.)

And at some point I want to rant about the evils of microsoft word for writing large collaborative documents like proposals. I so miss version control.
