Well, it's been two weeks since my last post again. I'm not sure how that much time passes so quickly.

I've spent that time looking for work and keeping the house clean so if anyone wants to see it, I can clear out quickly and give them time alone with their agent.

As for the house, we've received some great feedback from everyone on it. The funniest comment was that there were "too many stairs." That made me chuckle. It reminded me of the line from Amadeus, spoken by his patron, "too many notes." So far we haven't had any offers, but one or two couples have returned for a second look, so we don't think it will be long and we're keeping our fingers crossed. Then we have to look for another place to live for a while.

Julia and I started dieting and working out this week. So far it's going really well and we're going to go check out the local YMCA and hopefully sign up and start going.

I have a dozen things on eBay right now. So if you're looking for some "Pirates" stuff from WizKids or some HeroClix Limited Edition figures. They're here. Buy something.

Last Friday was Matt's last day at WizKids, so tonight is his going away party. It should be fun. He's accepted a position back in Canada for BioWare, which is pretty cool. Mike arranged a gaming day tomorrow with him, but I'd already committed to another game day with Tyler. Bummer. I would have liked to spend a little more time with Matt before he goes.

Earlier today Julia and I ran some errands and I finally got a chance to pick up an external hard drive. I've been saving some Christmas money for it and since we were in Fry's neighborhood I picked up a SeaGate FreeAgent Go 120GB hard drive. Considering my two internal hard drives clock in at a whopping 80GB, I have plenty of room.

Happy Leap Day!

Hello Again

I'm sorry for not posting for a while. And I won't subject you to a long, detailed recap of what I've been up to. The short version is:

January 31st was my last day at Microsoft.

I'm still looking for work and I have an interview at Microsoft next week.

Since the middle of January, Julia and I have been very busy emptying, cleaning, and fixing the house to put it on the market . . . which happened today! Check it out here. Wish us luck.

We saw There Will Be Blood a couple of weeks ago. I thought the acting was great, but the movie didn't excite me.

We're still watching Alias on DVD and we're into the 3rd season.

I'm working on getting some things listed on eBay. I hope to have some things up soon, but I'm still collecting information and taking pictures.

I've been reading a lot of graphic novels and collections of comics that I've had lying around for a long time. Maybe I'll get a list together and post it.

I haven't been gaming because I've been busy with the house, but I think I'm going to be able to play as of this weekend. That'll be nice.

And I think that's about it.

I'll post again soon. Most of my time is my own again, so I should have the time.
