Hm. Busy week or so.
Let's see - Sunday before last was the big roller derby bout. Big season finale, and the Hellcats won the championship! It was my first actual derby experience, and it was a hoot and a half. Plus, it was near halloween, so there were a lot of people in costume. (Pictures available soon in xhibition.) Plus, I think that every lesbian in Texas showed up there that night. So, yay roller derby.
Spent a lot of time in the last ten days or so either unpacking, being sick with a slow cold, and/or playing GTA:Vice City. Haven't been getting out much, but we did manage to make it to the Mister Sinus halloween show. Again, lots of costumes, lots of fun. I totally flaked on the costume thing this year - a combination of having no time to prepare, and not wanting to do something half-assed.
Did I mention that Vice City kicks some serious ass? Because it does. I'm about 50 hours into it, at 82% complete, and I still see it being a formidable source of time suckage over the next couple of months. Damn video games. Between that, and finishing up Kingdom Hearts, I think I'm going to be busy for a while.
I've also been doing a bit of Flash work for Organic, although I'm just really getting started now. Getting into someone else's code is always *cough* fun, but this little job should keep me sheltered and fed for a bit.
Being really lame about getting in touch with people. Been here for a couple of weeks, and haven't really hung out with anyone aside from Dave and Mel. I've been slowly contacting some of the Leri folks down here, but it's been a chore to drag myself out of the house. Between the cold, and it being 55 degrees and raining for the last week, inside seems like the place to be. Getting better now, both sick- and weather-wise, so that's good. Also time to ping the family in Austin - my cousin Nick lives down here, and a lot of my dad's side of the family. Still haven't gotten in touch with any of them, yet. Holidays, though. Hoo boy.
I also got a line on a good guy for Chen Style Tai Chi in Austin from my pal Brian, in Philadelphia. I wrote him, and he sent me back a ton of good information. Hopefully, I'll be getting off my ass and getting back into that soon enough. Plus, I just picked up DDRMax, so my fat slobbiness should be waning in the near future.
Lots more, but I'm tired. Later, baby.(November 06, 2002 04:21 PM)
