Waiting Game...

Just a brief update tonight. Sorry I've apparently dropped off the face of the Earth, but I've been kept pretty busy with work recently, which happens sometimes. Freelancing is indeed feast or famine, it's just the nature of the beast. But the insomnia on top of it probably hasn't helped, yick.

Right now it looks like my mother will get home on Saturday... so two days from now. (We found out yesterday, and I meant to update then but... it slipped my mind, just like freaking everything else lately.) It'll be really good to have her back and not have to worry about how she's doing at the crappy nursing home, although I must admit it was a relaxing vacation in a way. >< Which sounds callous as hell, and I'd never say it in front of her or where it might get back to her. And I wouldn't consciously choose to put her back in the nursing home just to get more of a break.

At any rate, once she gets out we can do our whole Christmas thang. Probably without wrapping the gifts, but meh. I also still haven't sent out any other presents to other people yet... YET AGAIN... but will try to. Eventually. When I can come up for air and not get sucked back under right away again. ><

I'm also waiting for my latest BPAL order. I was going to post about the latest mini-shipment I got (a replacement for the one limited edition order that got mixed up), and about the order I placed on like the 13th or 14th...but now they're apparently shipping it already. o_O Which is quite a change from the usual month-and-a-half-to-two-months. Maybe they're catching up. Or maybe they're trying to get the last batches of the Yule LE set out of the door, I don't know. Hopefully the former, but we'll see. So I'll post about any BPALness when I get it, I guess.

Anyhow, wish me luck. ^^;;

More memeage!

What, y'all don't want an actual thought-out entry today, do you?

Via leighdb:

5 things that would require you to hand in your Geek Card

1. The inner workings of computers (hardware and software) are all Greek to me. (That's Greek, not Geek.) I read some of the posts about how to work around Windows exploits and so on, and it's just so many words. I just Don't Get It. About the extent of my tinkering around inside my computers has been to add more RAM, to fasten down a worked-loose cooling fan, and the like. It's my Dirty Secret.

2. I read/enjoy very little straight Sci Fi. While I devour a decent amount of fantasy, I've read a whole one book by Asimov, haven't read any Heinlein, frex.

3. I'm really bad about watching current movies (one reason I'm considering trying out NetFlix, to remedy some of this). This includes... er... *coughs* *shuffles feet* not yet having watched any of the newest Star Wars trilogy. (Okay, part of that was the less-than-stellar receptions, but still. I am, like, so ashamed.)

4. I'm just about equally bad about keeping up on current geek TV. I haven't yet seen Lost. I haven't seen Firefly. I've started trying to watch Mythbusters, but keep forgetting to. And half of what most of my peers seem to enjoy, I just Don't Get. Like... Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Once in a while something funny, but most of the time... ick.

5. I just Don't Care about Star Trek. I spend a year or so on and off trying to catch up on some of it when it has the plethora of new stuff out and airing at once, but... meh. Just did nothing for me. I couldn't be bothered to learn *one* word in Klingon, let alone the whole language. Worf does nothing for me. I wouldn't know any of the crew of the Enterprise (I mean from the lastest "Enterprise" series) if they bit me in the ass. And I no longer feel any need to change this state of affairs.
