But take heart, it will get here before you know it.
Our weekend was pretty busy, just with family stuff and unexpected house guests. Took some good photos of my Mom yesterday. She posed for me in her new suit, and looked perfect and angelic as always. I think I will have them printed for her, she always likes that. Also, took some self-portraits and I added a new one to my profile. I wasn't looking my best, but I was just goofing around and decided to throw a few of myself in, since I take after my Dad (he always took self portraits too).
Went over to Xanadu Book Store the other day, as they have not only books but music equipment. Mr. J was looking at some of the music equipment, and I began browsing the books. Of course I couldn't walk away empty handed. I held two books in my hands. The first one was "On The Road" written by Jack Kerouac. The other was Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, which I had been wanting to read... Although I'm sure that the Kerouac book was more historic at this point, I couldn't help myself but I bought Memoirs because I had been wanting to read it since I saw the movie. I still have no idea why I'm so obsessed with that story... but I am (the Japanese culture, and the mystique of the Geisha are just very interesting to me). So I'm on Chapter 6 already (or 7), and so far it's very good... I think I'll try to check out the Kerouac book at some point though. I can't explain what draws me to a particular book, as I am not an extremely frequent reader... but once I get interested in some story, I will read it like mad!
So due to the weekend's events, I didn't post but I got around when I could to read my other blog buddies. Blog talk radio news: Rockdog fell ill, and did not have his usual "Unleashed" radio show. I certainly hope he feels better and is back in true form this next week... I am not sure but I think Yas's Radio Show picks back up on October 14th... so stay tuned for that! If you have never listened in, please also check out Meggy Moon, she's still doin her thang Thursday nights at 7! Tell her Jaxxx sent ya.
If I can fine tune any pics that I feel like sharing, I'll do so as soon as possible.
For all my fellow Techies out there, I leave you with this fine quote (Managers please keep this in mind when deciding it might be best to offer up that 4-day work week, or even the "telecommuting" option--We won't fight you on that.
|Sometimes it pays to stay in bed in Monday, rather than spending the rest of the week debugging Monday's code”|
