There has been much with the happenings. Just got back from Kauai. It was completely awesome. A full trip report is likely (fair warning). I bought art. And many, many macadamia nuts. Mmmmm.
It is only now on the way back that I can feel how sorely some time away was needed. I need to find some way to stop killing myself over work and start living again.
Also, I have moved. For those with my address, just change "Apt 78" to "Apt 71". A unit just down the hall from my previous one finally opened up (the previous tenants' new condo was done being renovated), and I happily took it over. It's similar to a mirror image of my old one, except everything has been upgraded and expanded. Also, there is a huge picture window overlooking Puget Sound. It's been about 3 weeks, and I still don't have my cable hooked up; sitting in my comfy chair watching the ferries go back and forth has been all the entertainment I've needed. Pictures soon. Ish. Probably.
Work has been crazy, but interesting. There has been a recent managerial shake up in the group next door to mine, which may present some interesting if risky opportunities. More as things develop.
