Mixed messages - Nightmare in Ashland

My dad called last night (from Olathe, KS, where he lives) to give me the update on his adventures getting home and to let me know what a good time he had playing Princes of Florence while we was here.Collapse ) He also said he thought it might be fun some time in the future for him, his kids, and our respective spouses to do a four or five day roadtrip together. (Yeah, baby, sign me up, or I could just be the clown in the dunk tank at the county fair). I suggested perhaps an Amtrak trip from Seattle to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare festival might be a good time.

I still am planning on writing about our kayaking trip, but I'm going to wait for sometime today when either I need to take a break at work or simply when I've got home. I'm expecting it's going to be a blisteringly busy day. As of Friday PM we were done with 3% of our 5000+ test cases ...

Monday, and Deception Pass Kayaking

I spent most of this morning futzing around on LJ. I did a naughty thing and joined a new community, booktards, and got so many responses to my question about a science fiction (or fantasy!) book that I couldn't put down that I basically just kept returning to the page over and over again. Later I was more naughty and YIMed my friend Rafael down in San Diego (he started it!), which I think is why I got out the door so late we were reduced to happy hour at Ohana, which is all day on Mondays. It was a great happy hour, though, and I just may make it a standing Monday date. I'm going to do a review of it on my other site - soon, I swear.

Okay, about kayaking yesterday - Collapse )

And I end with this charming haiku, which actually had me guffawing, especially since it's Monday again.
