In other news, I'm all set to fly to Kansas City for work next week. I'll be flying out at 6:35am Monday and returning some time Friday afternoon/evening. I got VPN access to the work network a couple of days ago and spent Wednesday morning setting it up.
Tomorrow I'm driving to Los Angeles to meet up with blackbasilisk. He's in the area with a friend for something education related. The last (and first) time I saw him was in Michigan where he lives.
I would say more, but right now I'm distracted and just not in the frame of mind to write about the umpteen dozen other things going on right now. That and they would just make these relatively small entry get needlessly larger and more fragmented, so that's it for now.
