I guess I haven't posted in nearly a month about what's happening to me, personally. I'm pretty good. brendand has moved in and now has the most organized room in the house. This has inspired me (as if I needed inspiring) to work on eliminating the stacks of varied clutter that have accumulated in the last couple years, reorganise all the bookshelves (many of those stacks are simply stacks of books), and finish the various half-done projects that are sitting around. This could take me months, of course.

But, I am at more loose ends than usual, since Bill is spending the next three weeks on a vacation - a hiking and park-visiting road trip North through Michigan, into Canada, around the north end of Lake Superior and back down through Minnesota and Chicago. While I appreciate people's invitations to be social, generally I hope to take advantage of this time to put in some long hours at work and make progress on various afore-mentioned projects. Besides, Brendan makes for fine company. :) Since most people ask, Bill is going on a vacation without me because I've only accumulated a few days of vacation and he had a few weeks of vacation that he was going to lose if he didn't cash them in by the end of this month - company policy just changed and it was use them or lose them.

Still, I have enjoyed seeing friends in the past week, I plan to go to Monkey Rampant on Thursday and would welcome company, and I also plan to stop in at the Stilyagi picnic this Saturday.

Let's see... other news includes the fact that I sprained my ankle last Wednesday. It seems I'm not as good at walking and reading as I used to be, and loose sandals didn't help. It's a relatively minor sprain, I'm pretty sure, and I expect it to be better in a couple days. Yesterday I was well enough to go to the Cube for Tai Chi, and I plan to continue going (Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30 AM) throughout the summer. It's free and I encourage people to come try it if you're at all curious. The Cube is in regents plaza, just North of the U of M Student Union.

Is one of Bill's stops Pancake Bay by any chance? That's about an hour north/northwest of Sault Ste. Marie on the east shore of Lake Superior. My parents and I will be camping there in August.

Aw, I'd like to have you, but I'm pretty sure my parents would drive you absolutely crazy. ;)

Plus my parents have always been of the opinion that family vacations are pretty much for family only, so unless you want to MARRY me, I don't think they'd agree to it. And if you would, I'd think that trip would be the last thing on their mind. :)

...you'll get the chance for some down time. (:

Just a reminder that Sal and Heather's annual gathering is coming up on Saturday the 25th. They haven't mailed you an invitation because they don't have a mailing address. I will get someone to send me the email invitation, so I can forward it to you. Seems you not getting one last year was all about not having an address and running out of time to get one. (:

Thanks for the reminder -Steve already let me know, but I've decided, sad as it is, to throw a party against that. Well, my party is going to start in the mid-afternoon in case anyone wants to touch both. My mailing address is on my website, which is the top google selection for my name. so anyone who is having trouble due to not having my address has only themselves to blame. Either that or my website sucks. :)

I'll probably send out invitations tonight. Whether then or another time, I hope to see you sometime soon.

Their disorganization, and their loss. (:

Don't know if I'll be able to hit both, depends on whether I work the early shift that day. (:
