Stretching Out

Tabitha and I are getting used to all our wonderful new square footage. She, naturally, has all her stuff neatly tucked away and organized while I still have a number of boxes half full of junk to contend with. I’ve been steadily chipping away at the boxes for a little while every evening and things are starting to coalesce into a more or less respectable-looking arrangement.

Other portions of my evenings have been devoted to the old apartment upstairs: patching small holes in the walls, spraying the sketchy-looking areas of the floor with Carpet 409, and jumping up and down repeatedly to rid the ceiling of bits of cobwebs and disgruntled spiders. One more once-over with the vacuum cleaner and we should be free of the old place once and for all.

Still another segment of the evening is being devoted to getting jump started on the day ahead’s workload. Seldom do I mention the ins and outs of office life on this humble weblog but suffice to say that I have been quite busy as of late and the number of meetings I’ve been included in has begun to eclipse the amount of time I need in order to get my deliverables polished off. So I copy the files to the laptop at the end of each day and spend an hour or so intensely focusing on a particular interface or architecture.

Lastly a small amount of time at the end of each day has been devoted to my new guilty pleasure: a platinum Nintendo GameCube which came bundled with the latest incarnation of the Legend of Zelda. I’ve never delved into a single game in the Zelda franchise but I am smitten with The Wind Waker. I can feel my subconscious plotting to work the smooth cartoonish graphics and engaging storylines into my dreams at night.
