It's finally going to start to get darker again. Thank Cthulhu. Sadly, it won't get any cooler for 3 months. Darn it. Been a mixed week. Some good stuff at work, some soso stuff. After a lot of thinking, and a discussion with my fellow admin, I decided that I'll be in the office 3 out of 5 days most weeks, vs the single day. I'm pretty non-social as it is, and not leaving the house on that regular a basis would probably be a bit much. Of course I regret it every night coming home, between the heat and the traffic it runs me over.
On a happier note, I have a plan for a 2020 trip. Thinking about visiting
LA for a long weekend. The HP Lovecraft
Historical Society (which I'm a card carrying member of) is based in
LA, and I'd like to see the HQ building and see the gang in their native
habitat. Plus there are a few bookstores I'm told I need to visit, some
Jack Parsons related places to visit (JPL tops the list, I know Dad would
have wanted to go as well). I'm also thinking of staying a night onboard
The Queen Mary not to be a
wannabe ghost hunter, but for the history (ok, a little for the ghosts).
Plus there's plenty of historical foo out there. I'm not going to do the
big tourist things, no Empire of the Mouse or Hollywood blvd or such for
me, even if I want a lightsaber on occasion *wink*. No real plans
for when the trip will happen. I was thinking after the new year at some
point, but with moving around that time we'll see, with PTO and fundage.
But should be fun.
So, that's about it for right now. I'll catch you all later.
