Ways I do not know that summer is coming:
Seattle's damnable weather. Aside from one totally unexpected day last weekend, it continues to be low 50s (at best), grey and rainy. Apparently it was even snowing in some areas yesterday. Yuck.

Ways I do know that summer is coming:
First, I can wake up. Even though I'm staying up til midnight or later most nights, I still don't have any problems getting up between 5:30 and 6:30am, and the occasional snooze-buttoning is out of habit rather than necessity and used to lay in bed and think, not trying to wake up. (During the winter, it takes three alarms to wake me, and I snooze-button all three for at least an hour.)

Second, and infinitely more important, I leave on my first vacation of four this summer two weeks from tomorrow. :)

It is snowing. This means I get to work from home tomorrow, and then Thursday should be fine for me to get out of SeaTac for a weekend of fun and sun. I win!

Today, the half-assedly selling my MBP and replacing him with a nice shiny new Mac Mini was successful, after a truly hilarious comedy of frantic running around involving four different cities and attempting (successfully!) to install an operating system while driving across a highway bridge.

Sheridan is now hooked up and happily chilling out on my desk, my 22" widescreen monitor is getting use for damn near the first time since I quit playing WoW last July, I will be spending tomorrow at Grand Assembly hopefully watching a mess of my Rainbow girls get honors, and with a fan, my computer room is more or less comfortable even though it's 90 out and we have no AC.

I'll take it.

Ok, so it's been rainy, and it still has barely broken 55 more than once or twice this year, but by GOD, if Seattle is going to be bright and sunny for a change, it's going to do so at 6am when I just got to bed three hours before.

I'm too old for this :) I can only do all-nighters at GenCon, apparently. (Oh hay, slightly less than three months now.)
ginger: (method to the madness)
So there was a great deal of traveling, and I should probably update about it.

Pre-traveling: Dan left for Chicago on Sunday, 6/27, and I had the house to myself for several days. That hasn't happened since before we got engaged, for the record, which was in May 2005. I did massive organization and cleaning sprees on my desk, our bedroom and the linen closet. All three of the bedroom closet doors are accessible now. I don't have to have mountaineer's gear to get to my desk. This is awesome. I also saw a movie and attended several Rainbow functions, including an installation ceremony and reception, a ritual competition practice, a board meeting, and a planning meeting for Grand Assembly, as well as taking an evening to spend lounging around my house doing ... well, pretty much the same things I do when Dan's here.

Chicago: Thursday 7/2 to Monday morning 7/6 )

Michigan: Monday 7/6-Thursday 7/9 )

Grand Assembly, Friday 7/9 to Sunday 7/10: )

All in all, I had good travels, and now I'm glad to be home. Especially since I have ten days of company arriving TOMORROW NIGHT ZOMG. *rockin' booty dance*
ginger: (chewie wtf)
Oh, what in the blue HELL. It's SNOWING. Fucking APRIL, and it's SNOWING. *fume*
ginger: (rainier)

This is the coldest June on record since 1894.

Dude, this sucks.

Luckily, this is what I'm heading into for a week. First proper summer weather I'll have seen in two years, aside from GenCon last year :P
ginger: (eyes)
Dear Seattle:

News flash. It is fucking June. Why am I still having to wear my fucking COAT in the pouring fucking RAIN in fucking JUNE. I hate you.


I should have moved somewhere with a summer. *scowl*
ginger: (qapla')
ginger: (huff puff)
School's done. Waiting on 5 out of 6 grades, the other is a "4.0 A+++".
Power's back.
Weekend was cold. Hedgehog is safe, thanks to G&A, and back at home. Still cranky though.
I'm 26 now.
Yay convertible mixer/stick blender! Must make cookies. For testing purposes. Really.
Must start finish holiday shopping.
Eragon was good - Casino Royale was unfinished, thanks to the burnt-out projector bulb.
