You forgot to wear pants!
Ha ha! Made you look!

Reading
  • Accelerando: 11%.
  • Harry Potter: partway through Chapter 4 (I think).

Blogging—I've started another blog, too, one that I intend to use largely for my fiction at this point. If you want to see it, it's right over here. It's using a software package called WordPress, PHP/MySQL based, and so I'll probably be fiddling with it on and off.

Writing—I've done a bit of work on "The Ash of Memory", a little more on my SF Challenge story, and not a lot else. Done some cogitatin' on Earth Fleet, and some on The Coldest War, but nothing that's made it into any files yet. I'm hoping to do some tonight, but we'll see what else goes on.

Day Job—So this Tuesday I get to move. My office is being taken over by another department, and so I'm going to wind up, more-or-less temporarily, in a former film storage room in the University library. It's kind of cool, actually; when you hit the light switch, the fluorescents all come on with that clunk sound that I associate with old factories, and there's a water fountain, washroom, mop room, and dumbwaiter all in the room. (Not that I think we'll be riding the dumbwaiter up and down, but you gotta admit, that'd be cool.) I'll be losing my nice big desk—it's a little unwieldy to move, honestly—but I'll be gaining... I'm not sure what I'll be gaining. But at least I won't be moving back into the basement.

Hi Pat. Your comment about your job reminded me of a short story I started (but never finished) back in college. All I remember: sometime in the not-so-far-off future. The colleges are so overloaded with underpaid professors that the profs with less seniority live in, and run their offices hours from, the bathrooms. See? It can always get worse ;o)
