29 Sep

Quickly following up on the previous post, I have gotten yet more “promising” news claiming all my stuff will be done and settled by the end of the day. We shall see.

29 Sep

warning: contains significant workplace bitching vague-blogging content This week, as some of you may be aware, is the last week of the fiscal year for many areas of the public sector, including mine.

♫never know how much I love you♫

26 Sep

Late last week, there was a bit of a bug running through the house. This happens the beginning of every school year; just the way it is. It hit me Friday afternoon, and left me sidelined most of the weekend. Chills, fever, aches, all the good stuff. I had to bow out of the D&D […]

last dragon*con post, I promise

08 Sep

As you guys undoubtedly know, I occasionally struggle with, among other things, impostor syndrome, wherein I doubt my ability and suitability for whatever activity I find myself doing, whether it be work, parenting, or playing in a nerdmusik/wizard rock band. Although the Blibbering Humdingers have been dragging me around with them to all kinds of […]

friday random eleven: “back to the mundane” edition

08 Sep

With the big geek labor day celebration behind me, I returned to the mundane world of public sector information technology program management on Thursday, and was pleased to find that that the place didn’t collapse in my absence.
