Still not dead [Mar. 19th, 2014|07:53 am]
[Current Mood |pensivepensive]
[Current Music |Amy Macdonald - Fairytale of New York]

...though this time it's a bit less of a routine protestation. (Appendicitis, three and a half weeks ago -- apparently the inflammation had begun to spread to the cecum, plus the appendix itself was situated somewhat trickily, and they dropped it as they were removing it...whereupon it burst. But the surgeon said they'd managed to avoid getting any pus in my abdominal cavity.)

Other than that: still married. Still at my "new" job (been there for over a year and a half now, does it really count as "new"?). Did a canal boat tour in England last summer, highly recommended. Still with four cats, though one had to be euthanised due to kidney failure, and another one moved in. (Plus we had one rescuee in our kitchen for three and a half months, Comrade Chairwoman Meow -- she's little and red -- who was rehoused this monday.) Has brewed two batches of beer with luminalflux, both of which produced quite acceptable results. There will probably be more. Now with one less house in France.

Not dead [Dec. 6th, 2012|11:28 pm]

[Current Music |Natacha Atlas & David Arnold - You Only Live Twice]

Going to CCC (Hamburg this year). Staying at the Generator. Still happily married a year and five months (almost) later. New job since a shade over two months ago (and been called twice by recruiters since I switched, wtf - if I began a new job a month or two ago, I'm pretty unlikely to be wanting to swap again right now, innit?).

Otherwise I'm pretty much in the same ol', same ol'.

Second best story of the day was a phone call:
"Hi, my teenage daughter went to see the Korpiklaani show at your club last night, and apparently after the show, she got on the tour bus and went to Arizona."
"And... how can I help you?"
"She asked me to call and see if her bike is still locked up outside?"

[Current Music |Lissie - Stairway To Heaven (BBC Live Version)]

Odd: a cocktail named "the Monkey Gland".
Odder: that it was named for a serious surgical technique.
Downright disturbing: that it was in vogue among the fashionable set and used on several thousand people!

Chair! [Dec. 19th, 2011|01:10 am]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

I am this close to buying a chair for around $1k, for my home workspace. It's an Herman Miller Aeron, which I have one of at work and love... But I need to gawk around at their local representative to see what it'd cost from there and if it's easier to get someone to ship one onwards from the US...

[Current Mood |indescribableindescribable]
[Current Music |LaiBachKunstDerFuge - Contrapunctus 7, a 4 per Augment et Diminut]

A mental flash of a "portal fantasy" world, where the person(s) coming in from our world inflict derivatives, advanced financial instruments, weird forms of trading, and a ruthless corporate raider ethos on a cookie-cutter EFP setting - to fight a Dark Overlond... ("Yes, we've done a hostile takeover of the Kingdom of Y'ngarth, we had to in order to leverage their potential for industrial progress and synergise with the magical capital we can bring in with our options on warlocks from the Hanana academies." Or something.)

Two and a half weeks ahead of the wedding - long-term planning, what's that?

Going to Budapest for a week, staying at the Corinthia Budapest (even though their spa's closed tues-thurs and they ship people to the Ramada's spa instead, those days).

In Melbourne [Apr. 5th, 2011|01:27 pm]
[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]

silverblue, lederhosen: if you wanna meet up, send me an SMS (hotel internet is hilariously expensive) at the "private" phone no in the infopost, yes? We'll be out and about most of the day (for values of "day" that maps to "Tuesday to Saturday" and "after 10:00 or so") and are heading on to Sydney on Sunday afternoon.

Also, it's pretty nice here.

8200 km from home [Mar. 31st, 2011|12:41 am]
[Current Location |Island Pacific Hotel, Hong Kong]
[Current Mood |happyhappy]

In Hong Kong with Ms. Terious right now. We've been here since Monday, flying to Melbourne on Sunday, staying there Monday-Sunday, then Sydney Sunday-Sunday, and then back to HK for almost a week (flying back midnight between Saturday and Sunday). I still like it here.

In Melbourne, plans include trying to meet silverblue and lederhosen, if possible, and in Sydney we're planning on meeting a former colleague of mine who's moved to work at our Australian site, Dinkos.
